What You Should Actually Include In Your New Year's Resolution

There are a few important things you should do this year.

What You Should Actually Include In Your New Year's Resolution

It's the new year, and we're all making resolutions. Whether or not we'll actually stick to them is another story. Here are 5 things we should include in our resolutions this year.

1. Stop using single use plastic straws.

The alternative? Reusable coffee cups/iced coffee cups! They're in stores everywhere AND in coffee shops! They're not that expensive, and you get to reduce your own waste and save the sea animals!

2. Check up on your friends more often.

Even if your friend seems totally fine, it definitely wouldn't hurt to shoot them a text to see how their day is going. You can afford those 2 seconds out of your day.

3. Verify news articles before you share them.

It's about to be 2019, and there's absolutely no rooms for fake news to be shared around. Onion articles are funny, but if you see a picture of Whoopi Goldberg wearing a vulgar and degrading Trump shirt, please just grow up and realize that that picture was photoshopped.

4. Appreciate what you have.

It's easy to compare what we have to what other people have in the age of social media, but it's easier to forget that a lot of people don't even have half of what we have. In 2019, we should take a step back and realize what we have and how lucky we are to have it.

5. Love yourself.

In 2019, we need to stop body shaming. This includes body shaming ourselves. We listen when we talk to ourselves, so be nice. Everyone is built differently and beautifully. It's time we stop comparing our bodies to others.

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.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
