7 Times I Have Connected With The Campus Squirrels On A Spiritual Level

I am one with the squirrels.

7 Times I Have Connected With The Campus Squirrels On A Spiritual Level

Everyone knows campus squirrels are the squirrels of all squirrels. They are their own breed. One of a kind. Beyond any squirrel, I have ever encountered before. But at the end of the day, I am them. I am the crazy, unfearing, creature that roams my college campus... only I don't jump out of garbage cans clutching a half-eaten granola bar. I do however relate on these other levels.

Running Away From People That Approach Me


Who are you??? Don't talk to me!!

You don't scare me.

Observing Campus From A Far


You definitely people watch too. Don't lie.

Trying To Blend In To Avoid Someone 


The squirrels lay flat on the ground to try to find shelter in the grass, I just throw myself in a sea of people. Same thing.

I guess after spending so much time together, university squirrels and university students have become one and the same. Who knew.

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.

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?

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.
