If You Watched The Super Bowl And Aren't A Pats Fan... Sorry

Did anyone else have a good time watching the Super Bowl?


Last Sunday the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams, and Tom Brady cemented himself as the greatest football player of all time with his sixth Super Bowl win. And the game was... fine.

Don't get me wrong I was very entertained throughout the entire game. I'm partial to the Pats and to see their defense actually step up in the game and get some stops was actually refreshing. It was as if the season came full circle. If people weren't bad talking Brady throughout the season, they were talking about how much of a pushover the defense was. And for most of the season, it was. But the way they shut down one of the most explosive offenses in the league was beautiful to see.

But if you aren't a Patriots fan watching (because LA Rams fans don't exist) the game, then I can understand if you had a rough time with this one. The whole season was full of big plays and no-look passes, and by the time it came to the championship games the top four offenses in the playoffs were all going head to head against each other. It was set up to be an offensive onslaught to end the season and those expectations weren't even close to being met.

In fact, if you weren't an NE supporter then the whole night must have been pretty rough for you. It wasn't a very one-sided defensive game, the commercials weren't very good and the halftime show was as bland as rice (more Spongebob would've helped).

So for all of the people who are up in arms about how dull the game was, I get it. I'm not here to yell and scream at you for it. We've all been there as sports fans, there always has to be an amazing finish to the season. We're greedy like that. To me, it doesn't matter how my teams win just as long as they do. For everyone else, it was a tough way to spend a Sunday.

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.
