I Want Someone To Look At Me The Way I Look At Pizza, With Pure Love And Longing

Unlike the men in my life, a slice of pizza has never done me dirty.

I Want Someone To Look At Me The Way I Look At Pizza, With Pure Love And Longing

There are a million different things different people look for in a relationship or significant other. When asking friends and family members what they value most in the relationships they have with their partners or relationships to be had in the future, most answers related back to the same four things; Partners that are reliable, emotionally supportive, well rounded, and inflict happiness.

When I first look at these responses, it seems like a no-brainer that any person would want these qualities to be present in their romantic relationships, right? Of course, you want a partner who's reliable and supportive and all that jazz. However, the importance of these qualities becomes much clearer when I think of my relationship with the closest thing I have to a boyfriend; Pizza.

Pizza is a reliable meal.

When I'm wanting a delicious meal when I'm starting to get hangry, a good slice of pizza never disappoints. No matter where I order from, what type of crust it's made with, or what toppings are on top of that thick layer of cheese, that slice is guaranteed to sit well in my stomach.

I'm never left guessing on where I stand with my relationship with pizza because I know it'll always be there for me and supply nothing but sensation amongst my taste buds.

Pizza is emotionally supportive.

No matter what level of stress I'm on, pizza is always there to calm me down. With every slice that enters my stomach, I can feel bits and pieces of negativity leave my body. Not to mention, if you request it, delivery drivers will write a joke or draw a funky little picture on the inside of the box! If that isn't a great example of a community looking to boost each other up when feeling down, I don't know what is.

Pizza is well-rounded... No pun intended.

There are SO MANY different types of pizza slices out there. I've eaten pizzas with pineapple, tater tots, taco fixings, cheese curds, fettuccini alfredo, mac and cheese, and even pizzas that have a brownie crust! The possibility for the different styles of pizza are endless as long as the master chef has even the slightest bit of an imagination.

Pizza inflicts happiness in my life.

I can honestly say that every interaction, event, or encounter I've had with pizza in the room, have no memories of negative sorts attached. While yes, there can be disagreements amongst a group over what kind of pizza to order, the pizza itself is able to be flexible enough to have multiple toppings on each half of it. Yes, I love pizza like I will love my future husband. I'm okay with saying that because pizza has never done me wrong or given me a reason to dislike it.

While yes, I do realize one can't have an actual romantic relationship with a slice of pizza, one can look for what they actually need or want in their relationships. So if anyone can love me and support me like pizza can, hit a sister up and we can get to talking.

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.

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.
