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.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.
