Happy birthday, Blue!

Blue Ivy is getting grown, and so are you

On Monday, Jan. 7, Blue Ivy turned six! Hard to believe she’s been a fixture in our lives for that long. Like most children of celebrities, it feels like she’s been the same age all our lives but in actuality, she’s been around for at least half a decade.

2012 was a great year, not only was Blue born but some other awesome things happened that year. Here are some iconic moments from 2012 to jog your memory:

Carly Rae Jepsen released a single that millennials now consider a classic.

Tyga was relevant then. He not only introduced us to Blac Chyna but he gifted us this banger.

Last but not least, Barack Obama was elected to his second term.

Feeling caught up? That was definitely forever ago. A lot has changed since then, but one thing that hasn’t is our obsession with Blue. We were scrutinizing her before she was even born, “Like is she even in Beyoncé’s belly?

From there we moved on to her hair. Almost everyone had on opinion, but it boiled down to whether Beyoncé should comb chemically relax Blue’s hair or leave it un-manipulated natural. Things went so far that a petition asking for her hair to be combed garnered 5,745 signatures, if that wasn't shocking enough, the Queen herself responded to the petition.

Lest not forget her adorable contribution to her mother’s self-titled album on track 14, “Blue,” where she closes the song with, “Hold on to me, hold on. Bee-sy-ay, Bee-sy-ay . . .”

Beyoncé does a pretty good job of keeping Blue out of the spotlight, but one way we’ve managed to keep track of her growth is Instagram. The easiest way to measure how much she has grown is through Halloween photos. Do you remember when Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Blue went as characters from “Coming to America?” That was two years ago!

Fast-forward to 2017 and Blue is killing it at a ballet recital with a full head of braids, dropping freestyles as well as vocals and according to her father and Ava DuVernay, is well on her way to becoming our president. #BLUEFOR2050!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

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.
