Don't Be A Basic Witch

Give your cat ears a break and be original this Halloween.

Halloween is right around the corner and I know all you witches are scrambling to find the perfect costume. Will you get creative and stray from your old costume box? As you reach for your cat ears this year, keep in mind these basic costumes to avoid:

1. Sugar Skull

So dead is the new trend? How about this costume is dead. Make up is fun and we all like to paint our faces to hide the evidence of that last shot we took, but no amount of makeup can hide your lack or originality with this one.

2. Harley Quinn

Remember when The Joker blew up the hospital in Batman? Well, this costume idea should have been in the building. Margot Robbie was a bad-ass in Suicide Squad and nobody can play a Harley like her.

3. Mermaid

Remember when Ariel gave up her voice so she could be human? Yeah she didn't even want to be a mermaid and Prince Erick didn't want her to be one either. So why would you want to be one?

4. Vampire

Grab your garlic, the vamps are out. Put these fun suckers back in their coffins because like them, this costume is dead.

5. Cat.

Nobody likes cats in general. Meow.

6. Angels & Devils.

This costume should go to hell along with the Gators. Go Noles.

7. Cops & Robbers.

This costume robs you of your originality. Leave those handcuffs in your dresser drawer because the only person getting arrested should be you for being so basic.

8. Bunny.

Hugh Hefner doesn't even like bunnies anymore, move on.

9. Purge.

Instead of dressing in an oversize white tee that you threw some red paint on and putting on the classic white mask maybe this year we should purge and kill the costume. We get it. It's an easy and cheap costume, but put the costume to rest just like you would that girl who stole your boyfriend.

10. Deer & The Hunter.

Deer lord, dressing as a deer while your boyfriend dresses as the hunter just reiterates the fact that he hunted you down and won.

Every year we say we are going to get creative and come up with something new but lets face it, we are all just basic witches.

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.

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.
