7 Shows That Will Awaken Your Inner Anime-Lover

Animation is a beautiful tool that allows creators to tell wonderful stories. Just because these stories are from a culture different than what you're probably used to doesn't mean you shouldn't give them a chance!

FLCL

If you're a fan of colorful and beautiful animation that tells multiple stories, this one is for you. The first episode aired in 2000. Lucky for us, Adult Swim has recently renewed FLCL for a second and third season. This is an anime that can be watched and rewatched in order to gain new appreciation for characters and little details.

Steins; Gate

Steins; Gate was beautifully adapted from a visual novel. Every single character has a unique personality and something to add to the story and progression of the plot. When watching for the first time, I laughed, I teared up a bit, and I was glued to my screen in suspense and excitement wondering what was going to happen next. Steins; Gate is a sci-fi action with comedy and hints of drama. Although it is a bit slow to start off, getting to episode 12 is like a reward as things immediately pick up speed and things really get interesting.

Death Note

You've heard of this one before. There's a live-action adaptation on Netflix. Don't watch that. Watch the original, it's better, I promise.

Ping Pong The Animation

If you can learn to love the unique style of animation, you can learn to love Ping Pong The Animation. This is by far the most relatable anime imaginable. Were you a high school athlete? Have you ever done anything you loved to do competitively? If you answered yes to either of those questions, I promise you, you will relate to and thoroughly enjoy this anime. It's sad and it's happy. It has the capability to make you laugh and bring a tear to your eye.

Attack On Titan

You've probably heard of this one, too. Attack on Titan is fun to watch and keeps you on your toes when you think you're about to guess what happens next.

Sword Art Online

If you die in the game, you die in real life.

Interesting ideas and colorful animation

Cowboy Bebop

A true classic. Cowboy Bebop is an anime you don't have to watch in its entirety to enjoy. You can watch an episode here and an episode there out of order and still enjoy the plot progression and characters.

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.

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:

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.
