7 Reasons Costco Is Every College Kid's Real Bae

It truly is the most magical place on Earth.

7 Reasons Costco Is Every College Kid's Real Bae

A few weekends ago, my friends and I took a trip to Costco. I had never seen a group of college kids become so excited about something. That's when I realized that Costco is a very special place for college students.

1. It's Like Disneyland

Walking through those doors, and seeing the world of possibility before you, is like entering the gates of the Magic Kingdom for the first time.

2. Buying In Bulk

College kids go through food and anything else extremely quickly. Giving them the chance to buy in mass amounts for cheap prices makes everything all that much better.

3. Free Food

Who doesn't love walking around Costco and sampling the different products they have to offer.

4. The Prices 

We're all broke. Plus, there's nothing better than the feeling of buying a dozen large croissants for $8.

5. People Watching

So, shopping isn't for everyone. Take a seat on some of the comfortable lounge furniture Costco is selling and sit back and watch a show.

6. Wandering 

Getting off of campus for a few hours is already a bonus. Why not walk up and down every aisle and look at every product offered there.

7. The Books

For book lovers, the prices of the novels there will blow your mind. There's nothing like looking at your favorite hardcover book and seeing it marked down to almost half its price.

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.
