30 Things I Would Rather Spend $30 On Than A Juul

If you are going to spend $30, here are some things that are really worth your money.

30 Things I Would Rather Spend $30 On Than A Juul

In case you have not heard, a type of e-cigarette called Juul has grown in popularity as an alternative to regular cigarettes and vaping. According to the company's website, "JUUL is an easy to use vaporizer designed for adult smokers looking for a genuine alternative to smoking cigarettes...The JUUL device is rechargeable via our magnetic USB charger and takes roughly one hour to charge fully." Despite the fact that the company itself has received continued backlash and lawsuits for possibly marketing directly to teens and undermining health risks associated with the product, the startup has gained popularity among teens and young adults.

Currently, Juul represents nearly 71% of the e-cig market and the company Juul Labs is valued at $15 billion. In my opinion, although I respect the wishes of the company to attempt to bring a cleaner e-cigarette to the public and respect the decision of those who buy their product (if they are +21 years old), I personally would not want to spend money on these e-cigs. Because of this, here is a list of things I would rather spend my money on than a Juul.

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.

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.

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.
