For The College Student Counting Down To Christmas Break

We're almost there. Just one more week, then finals, then it truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

I'm not sure if this makes me weird, or if I just have a weird way of wording it, but don't holidays make the outdoors have a certain smell? Well, maybe not a smell, but the air feels crisper, the days feel happier, the holiday TV commercials radiate through the house, and I really don't mind that awfully long walk to my car after I am finished with my classes for the day. Heck, even the news is interesting around Christmas time.

Holidays have a way of making the world around us feel different. Shopping is suddenly a fun, cinnamon-scented event, and everyone on Earth seems to be on the same page for once. I love it.

I truly start to notice the outdoor, happy feel around Halloween. I probably don't have to explain this one — because everyone knows that feeling.

College Christmas is like real Christmas, except an extended vacation bonus. It's fabulous, and I plan to enjoy it as long as I can. Getting out for Christmas break, even in middle school, will forever be one of the greatest feelings. You truly are on top of the world.

Viewer Discretion Advised: After you get past the depression of Santa not being (physically) real, the Holidays are really something serious, even for adults. They have a way of bringing people together and making even the air so much sweeter. Instead of rushing towards the holidays this Christmas, let's enjoy them. After all, the air only smells different for a bit.

"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things." – Kurt Vonnegut

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
