5 Reasons Work Friends Are The Best Friends

Going to work doesn't always have to be a daunting task. In fact, when you get along with your coworkers, your time at work will go by way faster and you'll feel like you have a support system that will be right there when you need them the most.

1. They understand your struggles, because they've been through the exact same things as you

Whether you've picked up a position that you really don't like or you've been scheduled for a really early morning or really late night, your coworkers will undoubtedly understand how annoyed you are. Apart from understanding you and cheering you on, they will be the very first ones to tell you that your pain is only temporary, and that sooner or later your position will drop or your shift will be over, and before you know it, you'll be chilling at home, binge watching your favorite TV show.

2.  The little things they do for you really add up.

From bringing baked goods for you when it's your birthday, to offering to give you a ride when you don't have a car, to going for late night food runs with you after your shift is over, to being a shoulder for you to cry on when life gets too messy and complicated, the little things that your coworkers do for you will really make you appreciate their friendship. Sometimes life can seem like a total burden, and your work friends will be right there for you to vent when you need it the most.

3. You share the same inside jokes, which may or may not be about your boss.

You really share a special connection with your coworkers that no one else in the world could ever possibly understand. With just one quick look from them, you'll know exactly what they're trying to tell you, and people will look at you like you're crazy. Your boss, whether you love or hate them, will forever be the main source of inspiration for your funniest jokes. Finally, you know that you can count on them to make you laugh even when you're not exactly feeling your best.

4.  They make it exciting for you to go to work.

Some people love their jobs, but some people find it really hard to enjoy what they do for a living. Nevertheless, what can really make or break your work environment are the people you share it with. If you get along with your coworkers, it will be much easier for you to get out of bed and go to work every day, simply because you'll want to hear their stories and tell them all about your life.

5.  You check each other’s schedules and you hope to be scheduled for the same shifts.

Whenever a new schedule drops for the week, you will mindlessly text your friends asking them to show you the shifts they got. You'll get overly excited whenever you're scheduled around the same times, and you'll do everything in your power to trade whatever shifts you need for your schedules to match. Their days off will seem like an eternal struggle, at least until the next day, when you get to see them again.

Whether you're doing your dream job or not, your coworkers will always be the ones who you can count on for anything and everything. So the next time you see them, make sure to greet them with a welcoming smile (and maybe even a joke or two).

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.

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.
