Graduation will be here in a blink of an eye. Your business-major-student, whether friend or family, will finally be finished with all those statistics classes, discussions about the stock market, arguments over ethics; yet, now, he/she will have to focus on the conversations in the real world. You know, that "world" business professors can never get enough of talking about: "real world" talk and "real world" scenarios and "real world" group projects.

Help a graduating business major enjoy the end of their arguments with pre-med peers over how easy a business major is with one or more of these 20 gifts.

1. Personalized coffee cup

Well, maybe don't push it in too much (not much of a present, then) but the cup is needed since business majors are fueled by coffee.

2. Personalized pen

One can't possibly properly sign documents unless his/her name is on his/her pen.

3. A briefcase

All business people have to have a briefcase! Where would any business professional be without one?

4. Decanter and whiskey glass set

I mean, how else will business majors get through the Excel sheets, numbers, percentages, calculations, formulas, and dollar (maybe euro) signs?!

5. Travel passport case

Business trips?! I say, "Yes, please!" #worldtraveler

6. A business advice book

There are so many books to choose from! Startup advice, money advice, leadership advice, the list is endless.

7. Tracker pad

Organization at its finest.

8. Personalized pad and portfolio

A personalized padfolio?! Yes, please!

9. A personalized flask

What's better than a flask? A personalized one!

10. Business card holder

Show someone you believe in them, by gifting them a tool to hold their business cards. This way they can advertise wherever they go.

11. Money (for new professional business clothes)

Nothing's wrong with a shopping spree, especially for sexy business attire.

12. Diploma frame

Something for the bare walls of his/her new office or, you know, his/her childhood bedroom.

13. A nice, professional watch

Nothing compares to a handshake with someone wearing a nice watch.

14. A subscription to a business magazine


Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Bloomberg; any magazine subscription is perfect!

15. Paperweight

Better yet, a decision paperweight— who said business majors make decisions?

16. Hygiene products

Just a friendly reminder that in the real world, one has to smell good to get someone to listen to their business plan. Employers are not like college advisers.

17. Desk organizer

A clean desk generates intelligent thoughts for those work breaks in between Facebook, Youtube, and Netflix.

18. Personalized/funny nameplate

Just to make his/her presence a little bit more known.

19. Advice on how to fire people

I mean, maybe they won't ever have to fire anyone!

20. A makeover

To get a job out in the real world, business students need that "it factor." That "look." So, grab your purse and take him/her to get his/her nails, hair, makeup did. Did someone say makeover?!

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.

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.
