Nicolas Cages National Treasure Outfits: Ranked.

And THAT is why Nicolas Cage is the true National Treasure.

Nicolas Cages National Treasure Outfits: Ranked.

I know what you're thinking: National Treasure, with its gripping action plot and stellar performances can't possibly have a noteworthy wardrobe IN ADDITION to being the greatest cinematic experience since Citizen Kane a fine mid 2000's tale of romance and adventure. But au contraire, mon ami.

You were wrong.... So wrong.

So without further ado, here's a ranked countdown of ALL of Nick Cage's suave 'fits from National Treasure

5. The Post-Treasure-Discovery Brown Corduroy Suit

Oh, we get it Nick.

You got the girl, you got your money, and now your too cool for school and showing off a little chest hair. While a fashionable ensemble for a windy 20004 November... clearly not your best work.

4. The Stealing the Declaration Tux

If you've got to steal the Declaration of Indepence, you've got to do it in style.

Dapper? Sure. But c'mon Cagey Boy.... Where's the pizzazz?

3.The Antarctic Snow Suit

Here we go.

You're fiending for your first clue, and finally rocking an outfit that says "hey clue, I know it's cold, but I'm ready for you.".... don't even get me started on that fur.

2. Clue-Huntin' Denim Jacket

I know what you're thinking-- We're halfway through this masterpiece film, we have some clues, the team chemistry is building, but when will the romance develop?

Luckily, one hour and nine minutes into National Treasure, NC Hammer finds himself with his babe co-star and fellow history lover, Abigail, played by Diane Kruger. Over this...interesting exchange.... at an Urban Outfitters (yes, they even pan across the sign) Nick dons his clue nappin' denim jacket and finally can get down to some serious clue hunting business... and letting this romance blossom.

1. Boom.

What are we stealin'? The Liberty Bell? The Mona Lisa? The moon? It doesn't matter. I can steal anything with this suit jacket white button down combo.

And besides, who even saw that Da Vinci Movie anyways? Tom Hanks-- feel free to square up with me at the Louvre and bring your fightin' gloves. There's only room for one receding hairline history-expert / high-security thief round these parts.

You might be wondering, are we striking power poses with one too many undone buttons, or solving the thousand year mystery of the Freemasons?

Does it matter. We're doing it with style.

And THAT is why Nicolas Cage is the true National Treasure.

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.
