Dear Girly Tomboys, Feel Free To Evolve

Dear Girly Tomboys,

First off, yes it is OK that you can wear makeup and vans in the same outfit.

I personally love my all black vans with my red matte lip. Yes, it is also okay to play sports some days and only want to read others. For some reason, the world has divided women into two main categories of girly girls and the tomboys. We are either playing sports or doing each other's hair, but God forbid we do both. I think we are all a mix of both tomboy and girly girl.

Sure, I don't enjoy the outdoors, mud by the lake, or boxer briefs and t-shirts every day, but I don't want to wear makeup with heels or boots or get my nails done every two weeks. Actually, why should I fit into just one category?

We don't.

We are not in high school anymore, we should not be forced into cliques. I think we need to empower our differences and embrace every aspect of each other. For example, I enjoyed playing softball throughout my grad school career, and still enjoy throwing a ball around every once in a while.

I am currently training to become more physically fit.

However, I also spend way too much on makeup compared to how often I wear it, and I have the guilty pleasure of wanting and/or purchasing too many pairs of shoes. (Ankle boots don't really count though, do they?) We should be able to love our romantic movies while indulging into the latest Star Wars movie or Marvel film. (Because we all know the only good DC movie recently made was Wonder Woman. Fight me on it if you want to.)

Anyway, we are all unique and a bunch of puzzle pieces. Don't let one piece become the only piece.

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.
