8 Little-Known Wonders Of Israel

While most people think of Israel as simply "The Holy Land," it has soooo much more to offer. I just got back from visiting and I'm already missing the ~vacation~ lifestyle.

With beaches as nice as those of the Caribbean and nightlife better than NYC or Las Vegas, Israel is the place to be.

1. Beaches


First off, the beaches of Israel are among the nicest in the whole world. Not only is the water warm, but it is also the bluest blue and has the whitest and finest sand. Not to mention, the ~beach vibe~ is amazing with dozens of restaurants at every spot and 24/7 liveliness.

2. Food


The food in Israel is frickin' magnificent.

Israel is famous for its A1 shawarma, sharshouka, falafel, hummus, pita, etc., but not one meal could ever be a disappointment whether you're eating falafel, sushi, an acai bowl, or pancakes. Mouth is watering just thinking about it.

3. Shuk


Shuk = market.

The shuks of Israel are by far my happiest place ever. The two must famous ones are Shuk Malachne Yehuda is Israel and Shuk Ha Carmel in Tel Aviv. And at the shuks, you can buy anything from jewelry, undergarments, and t-shirts to smoothie bowls, international foods, and religious accessories.

4. Nightlife


If there's any city in the world that's the most fun for young people today, it has to be Tel Aviv. The new generation's culture is so amazing. There's something to do every night, whether you're hitting a hookah lounge, the club, or some crazy unique bar. The best part is—everyone's always out. If you're walking the streets at 2pm or 4am, you'll certainly spot people out and about.

5. Coffee


The coffee of Israel deserves its own separate category because it is the best coffee I've ever tasted. I'm not a fan of coffee at all, not even coffee-flavored things. But something about the coffee slushees of Israel make it my favorite drink . Cafe Aroma is one of the most famous coffee shops in Israel, but you can get some d-a-n-k coffee truly anywhere.

6. Nature


What doesn't always come to mind when one thinks about Israel is the extraordinary nature sites all around the country. Whether you're looking to float in the Dead Sea, intensely hike Masada, surf in the beautiful Mediterranean, or go river rafting in the Jordan River, Israel should be more famous for all the nature it has to offer.

7. Holy City


Okay, so maybe this one is not as "little-known" as the rest, but it has to be included because of how crucial it is to Israel. What a lot of people don't know is that Israel is home to many religions.

Especially in Jerusalem, you can find religious people of every religion, and it's truly a sight to see.

8. Weather


I'm going to have to be a little biased for this one because I'm obsessed with hot weather, but the weather in Israel is always so so great. It's the type of weather where you never need to worry about carrying a jacket. Perfect for the beach! Annnddd summer nights are definitely the best in Israel because it never gets cold.

Overall, Israel is a country that everyone should visit at least once in the life.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
