Ladies, Even If It Leaves Your Bank Account Bare, Full-Body Laser Hair Removal Is 100 Percent Worth It

I always get comments about my hairless arms and legs, but, I'll let you in on a little secret: I wasn't born with it.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on body hair. You either hate your body hair, don't care, or just want to show it all off. I'm the girl who can't stand hair. Let me be clear, I'm not a fan of my own hair.

I 100% respect those who love themselves au natural: hair and all.

Even so, I'm a hairy girlie. I was born with a full head of dark brown hair all over. Apparently, my dad's reaction was priceless. He was drooling over my baby cuteness, big cheeks and all, but was terrified that I looked like a monkey at the same time. My entire body was covered with hair. Yeah, yeah, it was just baby hair, so it all fell off, but, still, I'm a hairy one.

Once middle school hit, I became paranoid about my hairy legs, arms, bikini, ass, upper lip, eyebrows, just all of it. I hated every peach fuzz and was jealous of all the blonde beauties with almost invisible body hair.

Can you argue that my body hair insecurity is at the hands of society's judgments? Duh! But, once I got lasered, I never looked back.

I've tried so many different types of hair removal treatments: shaving, Nair, waxing, electrolysis.

My mom and I spent hours prepping wax and ripping stubborn hairs out of my skin. I would cry from the pain and it broke her to see me in such agony. When I would have professionals spread my legs, I swallowed the pain and tears, but I couldn't see an end to it.

I was determined to get rid of my hair. I didn't want it. My parents never forced me to remove my body hair, and I was never actually bullied because of it. It was simply itchy, annoying, and a pain. When I found out I could get rid of my body hair forever, it was a dream come true.

I was young when I had my first laser session. It was far less painful than waxing, and seeing my hair shriveled, burned, and dead afterward was super satisfying, in a slightly psychotic way.

Since I started early, my hormones kept on raging. I had to go back quite a few times, but each time, my hair became thinner and my skin became smoother. Hair that once took a week to grow back now takes months.

Today, I'm a naked mole rat with silky smooth legs.

Imagine feeling post-shaven legs every day? No more bathrooms filled with the disgusting fumes of whatever shit is in Nair. No more last-minute shaves with your leg up on the sink. And no more Brazilian waxes.

Start filling up your piggy bank, because laser hair removal is definitely worth the investment!

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.
