10 Moments Any College Girl Realizes She Is 20 Going On 80

I suppose I've always considered myself an old soul.

There have always been things that other people have enjoyed that I just... haven't. Basically, I've always had "grandma" tendencies, and have been a "grandma at heart." I never realized just how much of a "grandma" I was, however, until I came to college.

There are some unmistakable moments where my inner grandma (maybe my true self) truly comes out.

1. When you realize that you'd much rather stay in on a Friday night than go out.

Seriously, going out is exhausting. You'd much rather stay curled up in your apartment watching your favorite show.

2. When you never really want to go out anyway.

It's just so much work...

3. You prefer HGTV or TLC over any other television networks.

Nothing makes you happier than when "Flip or Flop" is on.

4. All you want to do is bake.

There are about a thousand recipes you've seen on Facebook and want to try.

5. Or read a good book.

You long for more hours in the day just so you could fit in time to read for pleasure.

6. Or make a new craft.

There's nothing better.

7. You want to do everything from the comfort of your bed.

Each time you lay in bed, you dread the time you next have to get up.

8. You're always cold.

Your mom never has to remind you to bring a jacket everywhere. You always do... because you're always cold anyway.

9. You try to buy everything on sale.

Collecting coupons is cool, right?

10. You try and convince everyone else to be as much of a grandma as you are.

"Please, can we stay in tonight?"

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.
