It's Time For The Fair!

"There's something that feels so all-American about a carnival."

It's Time For The Fair!

It's finally fall - the leaves will change, the air will cool and the state fairs will be rolling into town on their colorful wagons. The fair has always been one of my favorite fall activities. One reason being that it's a great date night or night out with your friends. Oh, and don't forget the deep fried food (skip counting the me) and of course the rides that keep you dazzled and entertained for hours. For any of you skeptics out there that still don't believe me, let me share with you the magic of the carnival.

1. It's pretty to look at.

Even if you do nothing but walk around and look at the different attractions, there's nothing like a fair at night. The colorful lights and rides are mesmerizing and worth the ticket just for that.

2. The rides.

Hellooo, the rides are the reason you go to a fair. The Ferris wheel is probably the most recognized out of them all, but you can't forget the swings, tilt-a-whirl and pirate ship.

3. The deep, deep, deep fried food.

Listen, you are straight up lying if you say you haven't wondered what a deep fried snickers or oreo tastes like. The fair is the one place where everyone's doing it so no judgement can really be given, right?

4. The games.

The games at a fair are fun because one of you gets to cheer from afar, pick out a teddy bear and then proudly carry it around the entire fair like this:

While the other gets to show off and (hopefully) make all of those high school baseball practices from the good ole' days count like this:

5. It means that fall is finally here.

That's right, the best time of the year has arrived! The carnival coming to town means you've officially beat the heat and can now relax and count down the days to the holidays (after you go to the fair of course).

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
