At least when it comes to vacationing.

While traveling and visiting different places all the time ensures you're going to see and experience new things, there is nothing like already knowing everything about your trip. The ideal situation is to always keep one trip constant and to change the other one up every year to get the full experience.

Here are 5 reasons that prove it isn't a bad thing to be a creature of habit:

1. There's never much planning involved after the first trip.

You don't have to spend months planning a trip and making sure everything is perfect because you've already done all the planning the first year.

2. You know all of the best restaurants .

Throughout the years, you've experienced all of the restaurants and know exactly which ones to never go back to. Certain ones also become your staples. And if your family is anything like mine, not only do the vacations become yearly things, so do the restaurants in those vacation places.

3. You have met friends that you begin to see year after year.

Especially in a more intimate vacation spot, families are more than likely to come back year after year. Growing up, the best feeling was knowing that you're going to see your friends every year at the same place over and over again.

4. The place where you are staying gets to know you

If you're staying at a resort, the people will get to know you and love when you come to stay. There is something really special about feeling like you belong and feeling like you're "back home" when you vacation.

5. You are comfortable there.

There are no surprises or shocks or unexpected events. You're content knowing that you know what you're going to get exactly what you expected.

I know that going to the same place every year may not be for everyone, especially younger couples exploring the world. But once I have kids, I'm going to make sure to have a consistent vacation spot because I know how much fun it was growing up anticipating that one week out of the year.

Since I am such a creature of habit in the first place that I may just bring my children back to the same place my parents have been taking us for all of these years.

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.

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:

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.
