How Ironic Can I Be

Isn't irony weird?

How Ironic Can I Be

The teacher says, "Have a good/fun weekend." Then, the teacher will proceed to assign the longest assignment you have ever seen for that weekend, and you quietly think, "Well, I wished I could... but now."

I woke up one morning with an odd thought in my mind. The thought was, "During the 9/11 disaster, I bet everyone was calling 9-1-1." Was it a little number irony? Maybe. I don't know if people would think of this as irony. Maybe, it's just a funny coincidence. Like, why was 9-1-1 the chosen number to call for help? Why did a lot of people need the most help on 9/11? Is this a little creepy or not? You decide.

It's ironic to think that I am writing about irony because I have trouble remembering what irony is in English class.

The thing that is even more ironic about this is that I like English a lot, and I am getting a minor in it. (You would think that I would know irony very well by now. Irony is odd though, but I am practicing the skill of irony right now in this article.)

When I settle in for a peaceful nap but I wake up feeling like very groggy and zombie-like, I do not wake up feeling like a new rose or anything like most people would expect to wake up like. Hey, that's irony for you, right?

I'm running out of irony. Help!

Oh, well! For now, I am done with irony, anyways. Irony plays nasty tricks.

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.
