Real Men Are Sensitive With Each Other

If you can't tell your bros how much you love them, they aren't your bros.

Real Men Are Sensitive With Each Other

Controversial subject, but lets be real, your friends are the ones who you spend the most time with, almost as much as your family. My group of friends is literal family to me. As a group of dudes that was very conscientious about our masculinity, I can tell you that being intimate with your friends and your manliness has no correlation whatsoever. Why have a group of friends that are too afraid to acknowledge that they care about you?

I always knew my friends and I were way closer than most other groups of friends that we crossed paths with, but it never hit me how special of a relationship that was until we all went our separate ways to college. We're constantly sending snaps to each other talking about how much we miss each other and how we can't wait to hang out during breaks.

As freshmen in college, when we're all a little homesick, it is really reassuring when all of your boys aren't afraid to tell you they love you. Look for guys like that when you're looking for new friends or trying to build closer relationships. Friends should be able to confide in each other and be able to be as vulnerable as they want with each other with no judging. No judging doesn't mean you can't make fun of each other though. The perfect balance between this makes for the perfect friendship.

There ya have it, folks, dudes do have feelings. If you ever meet a guy who is too tough to give his friends a hug goodbye or talk about their problems, chances are they probably aren't as close as they think they are. You should always strive to have intimate relationships with as many people as you can, so your closest friends should be, without any questions, the most comfortable people to be with. It doesn't mean that you are less of a man for being like this with other guys, it makes you more of a man for being able to get chicks and hug your homies all at the same time.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
