The 9 Perks Of Being A Babysitter

Babysitting can be very tiring at times, but it's always a job filled with fun no matter what! Who wouldn't want a day full of endless hours of cartoons and unlimited fruit snacks? No one could possibly turn that down.

1. You get to watch cartoons and Disney movies.

It honestly can't get any better than watching Disney Channel all day with no one there to judge you.

2. You get to play with most of your favorite childhood toys.

I will never say no to playing with Barbies or American Girl Dolls.

3. You get to play with babies.

What is better than playing with cute babies all day?

4. It doesn't feel like a job...most times.

Except when there is a poopy diaper or a baby that won’t stop crying.

5. If they have pets then you get to play with them too!

There’s nothing more exciting than finding out the family has cats or dogs.

6. Hours of filling coloring books.

And then you will probably end up getting the kids drawings as a gift from them.

7. The money you make isn’t taxed.

One of the only legal jobs you get to keep all of the money you earned.

8. You become friends with the kids you’re babysitting.

After spending so much time with the kids you babysit, you become friends and get to watch them grow. It's a really cool experience.

9. You get to make food you usually don’t at home.

My favorite is character themed Mac 'n' Cheese! For some reason, it tastes better than the normal noodles.

If none of these very influential reasons convinced you babysitting is one of the best jobs, I don't know what will.

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
