There's never a dull moment.

11 Different Types Of People You See At The Jersey Shore

In the summer, the Jersey Shore is a wonderful place to be. Growing up in New Jersey, I can't remember a summer where I didn't go down to the shore at least once. The crowded beaches and energetic boardwalk were always something to look forward to. The Jersey Shore always attracts an interesting group of people. As I got older, I began to notice all the different types of people that frequent the Jersey shore.

1. The people who like to sit right next to you.

Yes, I get it. Everyone wants to be at the beach and the beach tends to get very crowded. But when you're sitting less than three feet away from me, you're a bit too close for comfort.

2. The people who seem to be having a family reunion on the beach.

You know what I'm talking about. The family that brings all of the uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents and siblings to the beach all together in a big group.

3. The young couple that is so obsessed with each other that they are pretty much lying on top of each other at all times.

(Who seem to forget they are in public.)

4. The people who bring loud speakers to the beach and blast music way too loud.

5. The summer camp that takes over the entire beach.

6. The couple with the newborn baby that won't stop crying.

7. The college kids having a total party in the middle of the beach.

8. Little kids who run around screaming and getting excessive amounts of sand on everyone/everything in sight.

9. The elderly couple that just wants to relax and calmly enjoy their day.

10. The people who can't seem to stop their umbrella from blowing away.

(Regardless of how windy it is.)

11. The surfers who spend the entire day in the ocean.

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.

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:

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.
