My 5 Favorite Places I've Visited On Summer Vacation

So many memories at these places.

My 5 Favorite Places I've Visited On Summer Vacation
Taylor Kirsch

With the semester coming to the end the only thing keeping me alive is the promise of summer. No homework, sunshine, pool days and road trips. My favorite memories of family and friends are summer trips we have taken over the years. Which is why these next places should be on your summer bucket list to go visit. These are my favorite five places I have visited.

1. New York City

I've visited NYC twice in my life and the last time was the summer of 2017. My sister and I planned out all the food places we wanted to try, most them involving ice cream. My favorite part was seeing a Broadway show, something that has always been on my bucket list. We saw Kinky Boots with Brandon Urie and we both fangirled like 10-year-olds.

2. Yellowstone National Park

My whole family loves it out west. My favorite family vacation is defiantly the trip we took out there in 2012. My favorite part was Yellowstone. It was so beautiful with the waterfalls and hot springs. We even saw Old Faithful go off. There is something very calming about being surrounded by all the nature and the sighting of animals you do not get to see every day.

3. Paris, France

Alright, so this one is by far the craziest place I have visited. I took a school trip to Europe the summer before my senior year. I got to explore England, France, and Spain with my best friends but my favorite place was Paris. Seeing the Eifel Tower, Palace of Versailles Notre Dame and Louvre Museum in person was life-changing and I will forever cherish that trip.

4. Niagara Falls

Last summer my family and I took a trip to Niagara Falls. We took the boat ride they have right up to the falls, got soaking wet and it was hilarious. We also got to take this tunnel to see the backside of the falls which was neat too. While there we stayed on the Canada side, which was our first time in Canada. I defiantly want to go back and take the trials they have around the falls.

5. Orlando, FL

Ok so yes, Orlando is the most basic vacation spot. Between Disney World, Universal and the beach just about everyone has been there. And yes I have been there several times but that why it is so special to me. I have been to Orlando is just about every life stage, like really the first time I went I was two and the last time I was there I was 14, but it holds so many memories. Plus how can you go wrong with the beach and amusement parks?

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.
