As a commuter student, I've seen my fair share of bad drivers and developed quite a few pet peeves when it comes to other drivers. My biggest one by far: PEOPLE WHO DON'T USE THEIR MOTHERFORKING SIGNAL.

I am not afraid to honk people who switch into my lane without a signal. It's one of the few things I will not simply be passive aggressive over. So for those of you who don't use a signal: here's 9 good reasons to use it - and don't get mad or flip us off if we honk you!

1. God works in mysterious ways so you don't have to

2. No one wants to get in a car crash

3. Don't you want to be safe?

4. Because everyone else in the car wants to feel safe

5. So you're not considered an asshole by other drivers

6. It's way too easy to do

Just move your left hand a teeeny bit and move the rod on that side UP if you're going right or DOWN if you're going left! Easy peasy.

7. You know which way you're going, right?

8. Your fellow drivers aren't mind readers

We don't know what you're thinking!! Without a signal, we don't know which way you're turning or if you're about to switch into our lane.

9. Oh right, IT'S THE LAW.

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.

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.
