Summers On Long Island Are Incomparable, I Can't Wait For Another One

There's nothing like it.

Summers On Long Island Are Incomparable, I Can't Wait For Another One
Taylor Lauri

Definitely not being biased, but everyone should come to Long Island in the summer at least once! Summers on Long Island are by far the best there is. The beaches are breathtaking, the food is to die for and the place to go, are endless. My family and friends love doing so many different things during the summer time on Long Island that we are lucky to have. I never really thought about it before coming to college, but after being away from home for so long, I realized how amazing my home is. I am so grateful that I live in such an amazing place that I get to call my home.

The beaches on Long Island are breathtaking! My friends and I not only love going to the beach and soaking up the sun, but we also love to explore the beaches and take lots of pictures. Montauk is arguably the best place to go on Long Island for a true beach view. You can go all the way to the end of the island and look out on the water. There's an endless amount of cute shops and delicious restaurants to go to. If you're looking for a cute shopping day in the sun, you have to go to the Hamptons! Coffee shops and stores fill the towns with pretty flowers all around!

Sunflower fields are the best! Taylor Lauri

There are so many sunflower fields and flower fields on Long Island that make for a perfect day in the sun. My friends and I love going out East and frolicking through the pretty fields. It's a perfect place to get those Instagram pictures and to just soak up the sun.

Farm stands for days! Taylor Lauri

My favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning is to go to our local farm stand with my mom. We buy way too many flowers, fruits, and vegetables. I could spend hours there looking at all the flowers and fresh food. We also have a farmers market in a big field in my town where local businesses set up tents. This happens every Saturday and my mom and I love to go and buy stuff we don't need! There's one stand that has the best peach pie that we get every time we go!

Could the water look any more perfect? Taylor Lauri

Multiple times a week in the summer, my best friends and I go to this place where we can sit in our car, eat ice cream and look at the beautiful water. It's been almost like a tradition in our town and everyone goes. The best thing to do after a long day at work or a long day at the beach is to come here with friends and gossip!

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.
