To The Low-Key Hoarders, I Relate To You On these 10 things

I'm not a hoarder, I'm a collector.


It's painfully hard for me to get rid of things from old clothes I haven't worn in years to old magazines I will most likely never touch again. I have boxes full of things I keep because I just can't get myself to get rid of these useless things. If you can relate, then this article is totally for you.

1. Keeping clothes from 5 years ago.

Do you even wear any of these still? Probably not.

2. Keeping some of your childhood toys “just in case”.

For me, it's my Easy-Bake Oven that I just can't seem to let go of.

3. Having an overflowing box of free things you got from your various college events.

Because you think you'll need that random headband sometime.

4. Piles of Seventeen and Vogue magazines you can’t seem to throw out.

Because maybe you'll need something you saw in it 10 years from now.

5. Maybe you have been stocking up on those free Victoria’s Secret bags you get with a purchase.

Yeah, me too. I have about forty and that's not even an exaggeration.

6. Wanting to keep old perfume bottles because of how pretty it looks.

You think you'll find another use for it, but when?

7. You just can’t throw out that expired makeup.

How can makeup even expire. I feel like I just bought it.

8. Keeping every cute gift bag I’ve been given and never reusing it.

Maybe I can use some to decorate my room with. Nah, I'll just keep them in a box.

9. Drawers full of t-shirts.

Still having all of your old high school t-shirts. Can you even have too many t-shirts?

10. Needing more storage bins for the stuff you can't part with.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
