Being Home For The Summer, As Told By That 70's Show

Hangin' out, down the street...for the summer!

Being Home For The Summer, As Told By That 70's Show

I've been home from college for about two weeks now, and it's been strange to readjust. I got so used to living away from home, it's pretty weird to be living with my family again. After living with other kids my age for almost ten months, I became accustomed to the "dorm lifestyle." Now that I'm back to being with my parents and younger brothers, it's taken some time to get back into a decent routine. Here are some thought's I've had while returning to my hometown!

You're (kind of) excited to be back home again!

Okay, so home is a little more boring than you remember...

People keep asking about school and what your plans for the future are, and it's getting a little old.

Your parents keep telling you what to do, and all you can think is...

But you get to see your old friends again!

And you can all...hang out...together again...

Now you don't really have much to do since you're done with class.

There might be some kids you don't really want to see again...

So now you're starting to miss your friends from school...

So you start the countdown until you're all reunited!

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.

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.

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.
