A break from classes is great, but these things make it even better.

Now that the semester is over, students can have a break from classes. During this time, many choose to go back home to enjoy their break. While you may miss campus and your college friends, there are positives about being home for winter break. Here are my favorite eight things about being home for winter break.

1. Being able to sleep in your own bed.

After months of sleeping on a mattress that felt like a rock, you finally get to sleep in your own comfortable bed.

2. Having a home-cooked meal.

Campus food can only satisfy you for so long. Getting food from home is always better than eating food from the dining halls.

3. Seeing your friends from home.

Whether your friends still live in your hometown or if they also have left to start their future, going back home is always a great way to catch up.

4. Spending time with your family.

Even if your family starts to drive you crazy, you still are glad that you are home and get to spend time with them.

5. Getting to see your pets.

The downside of living in a dorm is you are unable have your pets with you. The bright side of being home is you get to spend five weeks of cuddling them every chance you get.

6. The break from classes, obviously.

Everyone deserves a break after the semester is over.

7. Going to your favorite hometown places.

Whether you have a certain restaurant or hangout spot, there is always a place that you like to spend your time when you are home.

8. Not sharing everything with a roommate.

No matter how much you and your roommate get along, it is always nice to have your personal space again.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
