He's actually the best and no one can argue with me about that.

11 Reasons Jerry Gergich From 'Parks And Rec' Is A Wonderful Human, Don't @ Me

Everyone always rips on Jerry Gergich, the infamous character from "Parks and Rec." Or is it Gary Gergich? Jarry Gergich? It doesn't really matter. But, he's actually one of the best characters if you really think about it. He's just a happy person (he might be a little too happy) but he's happy and cares about all his coworkers, even when they aren't the nicest to him.

He always tries his best. 


But making jokes is definitely not his forte. Especially jokes Tom writes.

He's a mess, but no one is perfect.


He spills food all the time but, honestly, don't we all?

He's always happy to see his coworkers. 


He's almost always happy and just loves being included.

He is willing to help with anything. 


Even if that means reenacting a pie crime and getting pie in the face over and over again.

He knows how to have a good time. 


Even if he might be a little embarrassing to watch.

He's a great artist!


This man bleeds creativity I'm pretty sure. He can make even the mundane into something beautiful.

He has some great ideas.


Comic Sans always screams "fun" with an "ny" at the end.

He always has his facts straight. 


He can help you figure out things and will always have your back.

He loves when everyone gets his name right. 


I mean he doesn't mind when someone calls him the wrong name and honestly only the best people can handle that.

He doesn't mind getting dragged along to literally anything.


And he is always optimistic no matter what.

You can trust him with anything.


He's hard working and reliable, which is all anyone really wants.

Not everyone knows how wonderful Larry is.


But Donna and Ben do and honestly Larry and Donna have a cute friendship.

 He had greatness thrust upon him, but that's OK.


Garry ended up being a great mayor even after only being voluntold to take the position.

He's so optimistic and sees the beauty in everything. 


Even when things go sour, he can somehow see the good in literally anything.

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.
