8 Reasons Why I Miss Sunday Dinners at Nana And Papa’s...Especially During Quarantine
Sidney Ambrogio

Everyone has something to look forward to on the weekends. For some, that might be not having to work or going to the beach. For me, for the past 19 years, it has been going to see my Nana and Papa for Sunday Dinner.

1. Nana always decorates her house to the nines!

My Nana always asks me if I see a change in her decor or if something is new. She always is up to something new in the house, and I always love coming in and seeing how lovely the house looks.

2. Nana always has our favorite snacks!

Although Papa might not like the fact that my sister and I steal his favorite snacks, Nana always has her pantry stocked up for us when we visit. Whether it is Papa's gluten-free crackers or our favorite cookies, her pantry is stocked.

3. My Papa always knows how to put a smile on my face!

Whether it be joking about how I eat all his gluten free crackers or telling me a funny joke, he always makes me laugh.

4. Nana makes the best dinners, hands down!

My Nana always plans a fabulous dinner that all four of her six grandchildren and her great-grandchild will enjoy. And if she cooks something that the little ones do not particularly enjoy, she makes them something separately to make sure they eat.

5. We always catch up on "Grey's Anatomy."

My Nana and Papa got me to fall in love with show. Therefore, every Sunday we get together before he starts talking "Game of Thrones" to discuss the latest episode. If our family let us, we could talk for hours.

6. My Papa is the handiest person I know.

My Papa is always showing us his newest creation. From making my sister a trophy shelf to put her medals and trophies from cheer on to fixing my outlet when I almost set my house on fire, he knows it all. Recently, I asked him to make a window sill flower bed. I'm so excited to see how it comes out!

7. Their house has the coziest atmosphere.

As soon as you enter their house, you immediately feel at home. My Nana always has each room the right temperature and is always making sure everyone is comfy. I always manage to fall asleep somewhere and end up with a blanket on me.

8. They show unconditional love.

My Nana and Papa, no matter how misbehaved you are lately, will love us unconditionally. They make us feel welcome no matter what, and I love them so much for that.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
