Paint The Town Red

Once a month mother nature decides to send their crazy Aunt Flow to town.

Paint The Town Red

As a women, there are many things in life I enjoy having; like wearing leggings without judgement, having boobs (I know they are annoying, but for me having boobs (small boobs) isn't the worst thing in the word), and having many different colors of nail polish. Now, before all of the gender equality people come in, I understand that men can have these things, as well and so can trans men and trans women. Essentially all people can experience these individual things that I have listed.....but, only a natural born woman can have shark week or in more medical terms....a menstrual period.

Getting your period is a blessing and a curse at the same time. First you know that you are not pregnant (which in my case is a lovely reminder, but this may not be the same for everyone) and second this is nature's way of reminding myself and other women why we hate our vagina and uterus. I don't know about any one else, but I don't need to bleed once a month to know that I am a woman.....

From the cramping, constant bleeding from the downstairs apparatus, and the insane hormonal shifts (I can't speak for anyone, but myself), this time of the month is just awful! Why were woman designed to bleed once a month, if not more? Personally, I would have preferred a text message, email, or phone call saying, "Hey Boo, you're not pregnant! Have a fabulous week and you look beautiful!" See, how nice does that sound? No cramping, bleeding, or pain. Just a fabulous you rock message from mother nature! That sounds like a fantastic alternative to what happens now! So, mother nature do me a solid and try the technology side of things and maybe just text us this up coming month? I look forward to the switch. Or, I will go from nice to bitch in ten seconds.

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.

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.
