No pre-teen, teens, adults or anyone should idealize their relationship!

9 Reasons Edward And Bella's Relationship Is Actually Extremely Toxic

So, my roommates and I decided to take up watching The Twilight series as a way to de-stress and let me tell you it does the trick. I haven't (ironically) laughed obnoxiously hard at a movie in a long time, and I've quite enjoyed watching them-for every reason they weren't made for. Although, I can't ignore the fact that Edward and Bella's relationship is EXTREMELY TOXIC! And the fact that people have been idealizing it for 10 years is downright atrocious. Now I'm here to unpack every little thing right now!

1. Edward terrifies Bella.

As he should. He's a vampire.

2. Edward is controls what she does, who she sees, and where she goes.


We get that you're trying to protect her but like CHILL!

3. Edward makes all of the decisions.


Bella has a mind too! If your relationship was 2 sided, shit would've been better.

4. They both threaten to commit suicide MORE THAN ONCE


No one is worth that guys. And that guilt and blame is so toxic.



I get that he's a vampire and she has pure blood or whatever, but keep it to yourself or just walk away!

6. Pushing, biting, kicking, etc...



7. He forced Bella to leave her home MULTIPLE TIMES


Let the girl live her life! And poor Charlie!

8. Edward is constantly accusing her of cheating.


We all know that Jacob is literally hot, but you have to trust your woman!



Okay Edward, the whole time you're like "No! I don't want this life for you!" But you are recklessly in love with her enough to let it happen anyways! And Bella, where is your independence!

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.

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.
