Ah, college. A time to burst out of our comfort zones and create lifelong relationships with people we only know by stalking their Facebooks. It's a time to have a fresh start, meet new people, become independent, and eventually learn who our real friends are. College forces us to lose touch with old friends from home and realize that we low-key never even liked some of them. But, true friendship stands the test of time—and in this case—distance. Our first thoughts about college are how we're going to make new friends, and once we do, we tend to get caught up in all the fun and forget about home.

...that is, until we're studying in the library at 2:00 a.m. and we begin to incredibly miss our hometown. We long for our bed, our family, and most importantly, our best friends. The ones that we have known for years and can be our complete selves around. There is nothing that even can compare to the overwhelming urge to talk to and be with our best friends from home. We tend to carry little pieces of all our friends with us wherever we go. So here are the 20 stages all college students go through when missing old BFFs, as explained by the Kardashians.

1. At first, we don’t even have time to think of our home friends—let alone miss them.

2. Maybe it's because we're too busy going out and having fun with our new college friends.

3. So we're gramming and snapping away each moment.

4. But of course, the roles reverse and we see our best friends posting Instagrams with their "best friends," a.k.a. people we have never even seen before?!?

5. On top of that, college begins to eat us alive and all the studying becomes overwhelming...

6. and we know the only thing that will make us feel better is venting to our best friends.

7. So we call them and start catching up on our lives...

8. ...and begin sharing all our wild college stories.

9. Then eventually it hits us how much we truly miss our home friends.

10. All it took was one Facetime call to remind us how much fun our old BFFs are, so video-chatting becomes a nightly routine...

12. ....and all our group chats are revived and lit again.

13. Despite loving college, there is something so comforting about talking to our best friends at home.

14. Probably because they know us better than anyone else...

15. ...and talking to them makes us feel like we're 15 years old with no responsibilities all over again.

16. We begin wishing we can just drive to their homes and sit on their couches, but then comes the heartbreaking realization that we're miles apart.

17. We then have to face the fact that the only times we will all be together again are only on breaks.

18. So all we are left to do is start counting down the days 'til we're reunited.

19. And we all know how that first day of being home will go down.

20. Because they are our best friends, and ain't nobody fresher than my mother f*ckin' clique.

P.S. I would like to dedicate this article to my home squad: Casey, Katlyn, Katie, Kimmy, Manny, Maria, Marisa, Nick, Nicky, Noelle, Robert, and Sheena. Although half of our messages in the GroupMe are "like gram pls," I'm glad we are still close enough to constantly roast each other. I love you all :)

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.
