A guide to finding fellow campers.

6 Things Everyone Who Went To Summer Camp Can Relate To

As a huge camper myself, I have a hundred songs and traditions that seem second nature to me. Every camp, I have found, has similar traditions that they share. I love hearing about the different things that one camp does that mine doesn't. It honestly takes up a huge portion of all my conversations.

It is easy to spot someone who went camping for a million reasons, but if you notice these, it's safe to say they are campers like you.

1. They have a 50-minute birthday song they sing

Everyone has some rendition of this never-ending happy birthday song. It is dreaded after dinners, especially when you aren't at camp.

2. Apparel

Campers love to rep their favorite camp. They have t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, even underwear that are covered in their camp logo.

3. A strange devotion to a certain team/color

They would seriously kill another person for their color war team.

4. Endless stories

Anyone who went to camp can somehow relate just about anything to something that happened at camp. Think about it, I bet you could do it too.

5. A song or dance to every song

This was my closing in 2008. This was my dance in 2010. This was my cabin song in 2014...The list goes on.

6. Friends all around the world

The best part about camp. The people that you meet, and still connect with no matter the distance.

If you are looking for someone who loves camp as much as you, search for these. They will get your bizarre stories and crazy obsession.

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.

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.
