A Thank You To The New 'Skip Intro' Button On Netflix

I apparently watch too much Netflix, because I just wrote an article about what shows I would recommend to watch next. (If you missed that, you can read it here!) And here we are again talking about how great Netflix is. Ever notice how some of the opening credits for some shows seem to be about 3 years long? Well thanks to Netflix, that is a problem of the past thanks to the new "skip intro button" they just introduced.

Dear Skip Intro Button,

Thank you for existing. Anyone who watches Orange is the New Black knows that some intros to shows can last longer than anyone would like. In the dark ages, you would just let the intro play through and when they were really long this was the perfect time to grab a snack or go to the bathroom without missing any binge watching time. With the new skip intro button, that is a thing of the past.

Speaking of binge watching... when an episode ends on a cliff hanger, I do not have the time or the emotional stability to sit through a ridiculously long intro. I need answers and I need them now. You allow me to skip that part of the episode perfectly without missing anything important. While not all episodes have your amazing capabilities just yet, I am excited for the day where every episode has a skip intro button.

Not having to watch intros anymore makes binge watching go must faster. When there is no opening credits, there is no interruption to remind you that you have other things to do like homework, eat, shower, and sleep.The episodes blend into one another and eventually you end up on episode 9 when you meant to stop 6 episodes ago.

So skip intro button, thank you for being made. I hope that you catch on and stay around for a long time. You are amazing.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
