8 Things Bossy People Just Don’t Want To Hear

Don't tell me what to do.

8 Things Bossy People Just Don’t Want To Hear

Every bossy person knows they’re bossy. It can be considered a strength and a weakness. Mainly a strength though because a bossy person, like myself, always knows how to get the job done. We basically hear these 8 things every day, and it gets old real quick.

1. "Wow, you are so bossy.”

Do you think you're telling me something I don't know? You'll just get a big eye roll from me.

2. “You two could be friends, you are both bossy.”

Ha, yeah no. There can only be one true bossy person in the friendship.

3. “I don't need your help, I know what I’m doing.”

Clearly, you don’t, or I wouldn’t feel the need to tell you. So, yes you do need my guidance.

4. “I can help.”

No, please don’t. I can’t even think of someone trying to help without almost having a brain aneurysm. Bossy people prefer to get things done themselves.

5. “Why do you have so many planners and to-do lists?”

It’s just called being extremely organized. This way you can see every hour of your day. It’s the only way of surviving when you’re so good at controlling things.

6. "Let's do it this way instead."

Above represents the scenario that goes down in my head when you suggest something so silly. Like, why? It's honestly insulting.

7. “You’re so controlling.”

Yeah, because someone has to be or nothing would get done. If someone, *cough* me *cough*, was not in charge it would be total chaos. Even if it's just planning to go to a movie someone has to plan the simple logistics out.

8. "Relax."

Excuse me, what? I'm the only one who gives orders, but thanks.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

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.
