12 Life Lessons If Life Was Like A Telenovela

A never-ending cycle of drama and heartbreak.

12 Life Lessons If Life Was Like A Telenovela

I know the TV show “Jane The Virgin” is definitely an Americanized telenovela, but it was the reason I gave real telenovelas a chance. And I’m honestly hooked now. Here are some important life lessons I learned if life were actually like a telenovela.

1. Expect to get heartbreaking news 10 seconds after you are feeling happy.

Sorry, you're not allowed to be happy in a Novela.

2. Your lover will probably end up being your long lost half-brother.

I know right, ew. It doesn't matter if you've already had a kid together.

3. You will have at least one family member that wants to kill you.

You're lucky if it's just one family member.

4. Your family has a really big secret they are keeping from you.

Even if you think they don't, they do.

5. You’ll be kidnapped once or twice.

Don't worry you'll make it out alive if you're the main character.

6. Your sister that was killed right in front of you probably never actually died and will make an appearance again in the next season.

Then you'll feel like you have wasted time feeling sad for no reason.

7. If you are poor you’ll end up becoming rich.

8. When everything seems to be going right, someone will end up dying 5 seconds later.

9. One of the characters will have an evil twin you won’t know about.

9. Everyone will lie to you.

Literally everyone.

10. There are ALWAYS cliffhangers.

11. Your past will always come back to haunt you.

Even if you do move to another country and change your name.

12. No matter what you will always find a solution to your problems.

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.
