The Reasoning Behind My Cole LaBrant Obsession

It's not what you think.

It’s not the aqua blue eyes, it’s not the tears that ran down his face at the sight of his wife walking down the aisle, and it’s not the precious vows he read to his now step-daughter, Everleigh. If it's not all that, then what is it that causes me to be unable to stop binge-watching his YouTube videos and creeping on his Twitter?

Many active internet users have quickly become familiar with former Vine-star Cole LaBrant due to a recent Tweet that reads, “No longer a virgin #MarriageRocks”. The status of LaBrant’s virginity quickly went viral after its Twitter debut on July 10, 2017 at 10:16 am. If you’re like me and didn’t know LaBrant during his days of Vine stardom, you were probably introduced to his personal life via your Twitter timeline sometime around July 10.

This intriguing tweet then lead me to his profile. From Twitter, I was taken to his YouTube channel which then lead me to his wife, Savannah (formerly Soutas) LaBrant. Through both of their social media presences, I quickly learned that they got married one day short of their one-year anniversary as a couple. I also gathered that they are very vocal about “saving yourself for marriage” despite Savannah’s four year-old daughter from a past relationship, as talked about in their YouTube video titled “Dating Advice | How To Have a Healthy Relationship”.

Ever since the virginity tweet, young girls are obsessing over LaBrant and his cute love for Savannah and her daughter- tweeting their wedding photos with captions like, “Don’t marry him unless he cries like this when you walk down the aisle”. Ah, to be so naive.

I just love to see the interactions in their YouTube videos. It’s like driving by a car wreck- you know you shouldn’t gawk but you just can’t take your eyes off of it. The corny admirations they whisper into each other’s ears, the whole “being in love” after having known each other barely a year thing. If you haven’t experienced this Internet-viral relationship, I suggest you tune in to their YouTube channel, Cole&Sav. You might just find your entertainment for the next few weeks.

In the end, I wish I knew what it was that caused me to be so enthralled with Cole and Savannah LaBrant. Why am I so drawn to this Southern couple that makes YouTube videos on having a healthy relationship after having been together for a mere six months? Perhaps it’s the magic of irony. Perhaps it’s the wonky Southern accents, the getting “high on Jesus”, or perhaps it’s the fact that Cole preaches about saving sex for marriage although his wife has a child from a past relationship.

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.
