My memories of Valentine's Day are trying to get all the candy possible in elementary/middle school. In high school, it turned into "Single's Awareness Day" according to one of my friends. As I've gotten older, and even though I've met a significant other, I have realized Valentine's Day is about love as a whole, not just romantic love.

Here are 25 ways you can love EVERYONE including your significant other on Valentines Day:

1. Send your grandma a handmade card from the heart.

2. Call your mom, she misses you and wants to know what you're up to.

3. Have a romantic comedy movie marathon with your BFF and have a good laugh.

4. Treat yourself to a nice meal.

5. Netflix and chill with your significant other.

6. Talk about the latest football game with your dad.

7. Ask your sister what's been going on in her life and how school is.

8. Ask your brother how his life is going and how work is.

9. Go bowling with your significant other. Friendly competition is fun!

10. Pet dogs you see on your college campus and ask the owners about them.

11. Take advantage of Valentine's Day sales and treat yourself.

12. Take care of yourself and get a new look to boost your self confidence.

13. See how your little cousin's new puppy is doing.

14. Play 21 questions with a new friend.

15. Go on a walk with a group of friends to the bookstore, but with no phones.

16. Treat your friend to food or coffee.

17. Go to the movies this weekend and watch a non-romantic themed movie.

18. Or watch a romance movie.

19. Be creative! Make cards for all your friends but make them personal to each friend.

20. Make a home cooked meal and have all your loved ones over.

21. If you can't have loved ones over, cook dinner for you and your roommates.

22. Write a list on everything you love about a family member, friend, or significant other and give it to them as a present.

23. Write a list on what you love about yourself, Valentine's Day is about you too.

24. If you really don't want to celebrate Valentine's Day, you can take the holiday to get your homework done and get ahead of everyone else on your homework.

25. Love yourself! After all, as the drag queen Ru Paul always says, "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an amen?"

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
