Floods of tear-soaked viewers are exiting movie theaters.  

There is no denying that The Fault in Our Stars is a sob story. Two cancer-riddled teenagers have a passionate love, doomed from the start. Based on the novel of the same title by John Green, the movie adaptation did not disappoint. 

The chemistry between Hazel, played by Shailene Woodley, and Augustus, played by Ansel Elgort, feels real and makes having dry eyes impossible. Do not dwell on who you think will die, just enjoy the film as it happens. This story is not an ordinary cancer story. Two people, much too young, face death fearlessly, accepting their fates as something as certain as the coming of another season. Hazel and Augustus are amazingly selfless. They put their families and each other before their own needs, no matter how much pain they have. With bravery, wit and passion, the couple captivates the audience with their complex lines and emotions. While it may only be a story about love-struck teens, they are wise beyond their years and their story appeals to almost anyone. 

When you go see the movie, I have two pointers. One, bring tissues. Two, get a drink, like Coke, to sip on that will suppress your sobs at least a little. Join the bandwagon and see the film. Anyone who has a heart will absolutely adore it.  Kidding, but really. Plenty of guys have endured it and admitted to liking it, including my boyfriend who even read the book before the movie and, shockingly, enjoyed both. I would suggest reading the book before, or after, if you don’t mind breaking the rule. Both are excellent and redefine the intensity of teen romance. 

Okay. If you don’t understand what I mean, see The Fault in Our Stars.

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.
