I used to be a girl. I thought and walked like one, acted like her too. I spent hours caring about what others thought of me, and days overanalyzing every word I heard. I'd be on top of the world one minute and far into the ground the next. Everything was a big deal. Everyone was out to get me. I was petty, overdramatic, and jealous. Selfish, superficial and nowhere near prioritized. Foolish. I could go on forever if I wasn't so sick of her.

I used to need a boy, who always bailed on plans. Who spoke nothing of substance and every ounce of nonsense. Uncommittable was his name and messing around was his game. He was petty, careless, and overrated. Narcissistic, childish, and predictable. Inconsistent. Distant. I could go on forever if I wasn't so sick of him.

Now I am a woman who knows what she wants, who's not afraid to speak her mind if it means baring the uncensored truth. I am comfortable, confident and straightforward. I, for lack of a better word, have my shit together. I know my worth and won't even waste a second questioning what I deserve. I'm wise and aware. Fierce and independent. Realistic. Mature. And done chasing after silly, silly boys.

A woman deserves a man. A man who is polite and respectful-- the ones whose chivalrous actions go beyond opening their lady's car door. The ones who build you up and encourage your growth. He'll be genuine, consistent, and inviting. Loving, selfless, and present. All that a boy is incapable of being, and who a girl isn't deserving of having. A girl feels the need to cling onto the uncertain and erratic behavior boys supply her with, but a true, classy woman deserves a grown, defined man. Which one are you?

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.

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.

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.
