5 Basic Driving Techniques Most People Choose To Ignore

Ever want to know how to drive without making the other drivers upset? Here you go.


We may forget to do certain things or we may do extra things we shouldn't be doing.

Turn Signals


These are used to indicate your upcoming turn. Use them or you will make the driver behind angry.

Put your phone down.


You'll start driving slow and swerving because you are distracted. Risking your own and other lives. People will drive beside you and get mad because you are not paying attention and obstructing their good driving experience.

Don't put on mascara while driving


I understand you may be running late, it takes talent to drive and put mascara on. You're risking other peoples lives because you aren't paying full attention to driving.

Your burger can wait..


I have done it too. You are super hungry and on your way to somewhere. Stop driving and eat it, or wait until you arrive to your destination. Someone will drive beside you and laugh at you as you stuff that burger in your face.

Your Snapchat can wait...


Watching someone take a selfie while at a red light looks pretty funny.

These are just some things I have seen in the last couple of weeks with other drivers on the road. To each their own, but you might look a little silly.

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.

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.
