Luke P. Might Suck, But He Was The Only Reason I Kept Watching 'The Bachelorette' Season 15

It's all because of Luke Parker and all of the drama that tags along with him.

Luke P. Might Suck, But He Was The Only Reason I Kept Watching 'The Bachelorette' Season 15

"Can I pray over you before I leave?"

Oh man.

This line was said by the infamous Luke Parker, the 24-year-old from Georgia, right before he stepped into the van in this episode. On Season 15 of "The Bachelorette," Hannah Brown and Luke Parker initially hit it off with Parker receiving the first impression rose during the season premiere, but everything went downhill from there.

Parker has been found guilty of body slamming another contestant during a group date, dragging others into petty drama, and turning Hannah into an emotional wreck as the season progressed. But this is exactly why I watch "The Bachelorette."

When I watch "The Bachelorette," there are times when I don't know whether to laugh or cringe, but that's a good thing. Other times, I'm sitting on the edge of my seat, yearning to know what the next episode brings after the previous episode is cut off right before a rose ceremony. Even my mom watches "The Bachelorette," and that's saying a lot. While she always criticizes the show's intimate moments, she also always wants me to fill her in on the drama. Let's be real here, every season of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" needs a villain because otherwise, there'll be no "action."

"The Bachelorette" needs Luke P.'s narcissistic ass or else we wouldn't have an episode like this one. It's this drama that makes the "Men Tell All" episode at the end of the season so juicy, and it's also why the show has garnered so many viewers.

As audience members, it's hard to believe that someone like Parker would make it as far as he did (he actually made it to the hometown dates, which is the final four) because we see his bad side, but Hannah doesn't see what he does and says when she's not around. We see all of the crap that he dishes out, and it's almost as if we want to kick him off of the show ourselves. I remember whenever a rose ceremony would take place, it would always come down to either Luke P. or another contestant, and every time, Luke P. would end up receiving the rose, and I would facepalm myself yet again. It was actually unbelievable, and I'm sure the other men couldn't believe it either.

In all honesty, I just wanted to see how many episodes it would take him to get eliminated, and it finally happened. Sometimes, I think that the show makes Hannah keep him around for longer even though she doesn't want to for the views, and it worked on me at least.

Regardless, "The Bachelorette" may be scripted reality television, and several of my friends criticize me for watching it, but it gives me something to look forward to on Mondays, and it makes me glad that there isn't that sort of drama in my life.

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.
