Sandro: The Husband

To laugh or not to laugh, that is the question.

Sandro: The Husband

Meet Sandro:

"Love has flown, all alone, I sit
I wonder why yi-yi-yi,
Oh why
You left me,
Oh Sandy
Sandy, Sandy
Why yi-yi-yi"

-John Trevolta, Grease, 1978

I sing that song every time I see him. Sandro is a Swiss-German graduate student at CBS that smiles once every two years or so. He is the dad of the dorm, the beer connoisseur, the sassiest bearded man I've met. Sandro is....well, he is Sandro. He is cool, calm and collective to the extreme. Making Sandro laugh is a privilege, you can ask anyone at Holger. The first time any of us made Sandro laugh we got all giggly and proud.

Notice how in the picture we're standing next to a Lego family? Well, this is the story of an American girl that met a Swiss guy and wanted to run away from her politically scandalous country. How would she do that, you ask? It's simple, I am marrying Sandro (not really, just in case you need clarification). We were walking home one night and we started comparing countries, and though my loyalty will always be with the USofA, Switzerland does not have Doland Trump. In that moment of midnight, kebabs becoming a Swiss citizen sounded like a great plan in case of mayhem back home. We came up with a verbal agreement that changes every week and decided we'd marry each other.

Though this is an entertaining story, my favorite story is a recent one. CBS, the school we are enrolled in, prepared a Denmark tour for us to enjoy. As part of the Denmark tour we were, of course, taken to Lego Land (because Legos are Danish). Now Sandro is this tall, quiet, sarcastic SOB. Out of everyone at Holger, he would have been the last person I would've pinned as afraid of rollercoasters. So I love rollercoaster and I call dibs on sitting with Sandro, and it was sooooooo amazing. Hearing Sandro laugh and scream was hilarious. I mean, it is the most expression I've seen on his face, it was so priceless. Man oh man, I love you Sandy! Thanks for laughing at one of my jokes that one time, I'll never forget it.

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.

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.
