Don't Be Someone's 'Sometimes''-Bridget Devoue

Girls lets reevaulte what we do and don't want.

Don't' be that girl that is someone's sometimes. The girl who answers the text or snapchat instantly after not hearing from him for a month. Don't be the girl willing to run over to his house when he has never come to see you. Don't be the girl doing his homework, buying him coffee and so on when he never does anything for you.

If you've found yourself in any of these instances you need to check yourself and reevaluate your self-worth.

Society has become this place where if you don't have a certain something in your life your viewed as less. In high school, it was all about the perfect car or the perfect prom date. If you didn't have either you were cast off in an island of misfits, the people that do not fit into the perfect lives society has dreamed up. If in college you don't have a constant hook up or a boyfriend your weird and people wonder what's wrong with you. Or at least that's the impression I've been getting.

Society has made girls turn into people that think they need constant attention or attraction to the opposite sex. If a guy isn't paying attention to you at a frat party or out at the bars something must be wrong with the girl. Why can't anything ever be wrong with the guy? Why doesn't he have the balls to come up to the girl?

This brings me to the point where we have come to except it to be okay to just be that guys sometime, maybe hook up. Standards have been thrown out the window and we take what we can get.

What happened to the mentality that its a privilege for the guy to talk to the girl. He's lucky she's giving him the time of day.

I recently read a quote that is really important to understand and to truly take to heart

"Independent females are so undervalued, She doesn't need you, she wants you. She is going to do her own thing with or without you"

Ladies, we do not need guys. This mindset society has set forth that makes us lower our standards it not okay!

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.

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.
