Why Jake And Peyton Should've Been Endgame On "One Tree Hill"

This is a response to I'm Begging You, If You're Going To Watch One TV Show, Please Watch 'One Tree Hill'

Although one of the most popular couples to come from “One Tree Hill”, Lucas and Peyton were extremely overrated. Jake and Peyton were actually a much better fit for each other.

Their relationship (Lucas and Peyton) started by breaking Brooke’s heart. The teen drama protagonist spent the first season toying with both girls, tearing the long-time friendship apart. Lucas could never make his mind up about who he wanted to be with. When season five came around he once again had Peyton caught in a love triangle, this time involving him and Lindsey; dragging the poor girls’ hearts around while he came to terms with his own feelings. To his credit, he was very supportive of Peyton during her toughest times; they were great as friends and really should’ve stayed that way.

On the other hand, Jake was a sweet, adorable, and sensitive guy who won Peyton’s heart and treated her the way she deserved. It always felt like they had better chemistry (plus Hillarie Burton had a crush on Bryan Greenberg). It just seemed more natural for them. The surprise visit in season three was among the most memorable and romantic storylines on the show. Unfortunately the writers had to go and make it about Leyton. But Jake and Peyton had a special connection that she never had with Lucas. Along with a lot less drama.

Lucas and Peyton were supposed to be seen as soulmates, but they honestly felt more like default. Jake was the one who really got Peyton.

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.

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.
