10 Reasons Why I Love My Red-Headed Friend

It's a new adventure every day with us.

10 Reasons Why I Love My Red-Headed Friend

This is Lindsey, but I call her Little Red because, well, she's a redhead! She and I have been friends for about four years and we've had some fun times in those four short years being friends.

1. I always have someone to argue with

I can't tell you how many times a day we argue (usually because she claims I'm being extra or a drama queen, but that's beside the point). Some are serious and others are just stupid, but there's never a dull moment no matter what.

2. I always have someone there to ask questions when I think about doing something off the wall

I used to think that my redhead friend was broken because she actually thinks about what she's doing when I would much rather jump straight into it, but it's fine. It's a nice balance!

3. Two words: beach trips

I always picture her living on the beach because she loves the beach; I personally would much rather spend my time shopping, but it's fine. I've been on 3 beach trips with her and I hope I get to go on some more because why not.

4. Brunch dates

We are just counting down the days to having cute little brunches with wine and fun nights with margaritas.

5. I'm forced to look like a decent human being because of her hair

Everywhere we go, people look at least two or three times because her hair is so bright, it's ridiculous. Especially when she wears green, it's like her hair is screaming, "Look at me! I'm bright red!"

6. Starbucks

I don't think I ever told her this, but she got me into Starbucks, so thanks Little Red; I'm forever going to go broke on vanilla bene cremes.

7. Target

Fun fact: I never knew how serious Target shopping was until I went with her and her mom. It should be considered a sport.

8. She accepts the fact that I do stupid things without thinking

She's not even shocked at this point anymore and still wonders why I became ordained on the fly at random. It's one of my defaults, I guess. I do something wild and she just accepts it.

9. I've got someone to laugh at me forever and ever

10. I've got a forever friend

Simple. She's one of the girls who survived high school with me and I have a feeling that we're going to be friends forever and ever (it's pretty hard to get rid of me). It feels good knowing that I have a forever friend no matter where we end up in the world.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
