Easter in Quarantine - Ideas for the Whole Family

There's no reason you can't still celebrate Easter!

Easter in Quarantine - Ideas for the Whole Family

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. It has so much joy and brightness to it. Unfortunately many of favorite traditions are unable to be celebrated this year (including visiting my aunt's golden retriever). But there are plenty of cute things you can do this Easter at home.

Bunny Cake

Ever make a bunny cake? It's so cute and super easy!

All you need to make is 2 cakes.

One cake is the head and the other you can use to make the bow tie and the two ears.

Bunny cupcakes

This year my mom and I are making bunny cupcakes! We decided to do cupcakes instead of bunny cake because it's easier to spread less germs with cupcakes. We are simply going to put coconut on them to make it look like fur. We are going to use icing and jellybeans to make the facial features.

Dress up

Every year we dress up for Easter service and brunch. Even though we can't go to either this year, we are still going to dress up. It will be a change from wearing hoodies and sweatpants everyday.

Online mass

Many local churches are arranging for their parishioners to call in or zoom into mass or service on Easter Sunday. St. Patrick's Cathedral is also hosting a live mass on Easter Sunday that people can watch. It can be seen on St. Patrick's Cathedral's YouTube page live at 10am.

Easter Egg Hunt

Create your own Easter egg hunt for your family, or, do a virtual one! Hide eggs around your house or and video chat with your friends or family. Walk around the house and have them look for the eggs while you're doing so!

Zoom brunch

Zoom with your family. Make a special brunch, something you may normally have for brunch on Easter Sunday and encourage your family that you would normally spend Easter with to do the same. There's no reason you can't chat over brunch!

Dress up your pet as a bunny

Your dog or cat may not like this but it will be awfully cute! It will make some pretty great pictures for the gram!

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.
