Common Reactions From Everyone Currently Sitting In Rush Hour Traffic

Thanks to the growing amount of people getting their licenses and the shrinking number of people losing them (cough cough, I'm looking at you, Gramps), our highways just can't seem to hold all of us. Not enough people take back roads and even less understand how to drive at all so the rest of us are stuck in the middle lane with 5 minutes to get to work and 20 miles worth of traffic to muscle through. Now, chances are we are all making the same faces and screaming at the same things the whole way there.

1. When the car in front of you seems to *forget* where their blinker is and what it's used for.

2. When the car behind you honks because you didn't signal - like who uses blinkers? You're fine.

3. When you slow down to let that driver over who just doesn't understand what merging even is or how to do it.

4. When someone flies around you only to cut you off and comes so close to hitting you that your car starts sweating oil...

5. Then you accidentally cut someone else off and they start giving you the bird, not to mention they look twice your size and probably have a gun under their seat.

6. When you're stuck behind someone going literally 5 mph

7. ...And they refuse to get over...for 10 miles...

8. ...So you just continue in your rage to inch closer to their bumper and scream at the back of their car.

9. Do we even need to mention tractor-trailers?

10. When you finally and barely make it to work on time.

*lays down in the middle of the room*

11. Then you realize you're going to have to do the same thing all over again at 5 o'clock

*sobs* Help me.

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.
