10 Things I Will Miss From Home

Home feels too comfortable after six weeks.

10 Things I Will Miss From Home

Winter break is finally over and it is time to head back to the U and start winter term classes. As stoked as I am to be heading back to my friends and rule-free life, I am going to miss a few things about home.

1. My Dog

My dog is my favorite companion and I love her very much. It is always very hard to leave my bud but it is always so exciting to see how amped she gets when I return.

2. My bed

At home I have a big full bed and it feels monstrous compared to my squeaky twin at school. I will definitely miss by cloud/bed at school.

3. My parents

My mom and dad are pretty cool and are usually pretty nice to me when I am home. So they make this list.

4. Sleeping late

My winter schedule isn't too bad, but I have a lot more responsibilities and will have to eventually get up. My days of sleeping all day are unfortunately over.

5. My home friends

It is always great to come home and catch up with your home friends. I will miss our goofy antics but summer is six months away!

6. My shower

My shower at home doesn't even compare to my shower at school. Also wearing shower shoes sucks.

7. My car

Unfortunately my sister is the temporary owner of our shared Tahoe while I am at school. I will miss cruising around my town.

8. Homemade food

It is safe to say that I am not looking forward to Union dining. I prefer to have fresh produce and identifiable meat.

9. My sister

My sister is cool sometimes, but I think she wants me to leave so she can be an only child again.

10. No homework

Looking at my schedule for winter term, a huge wave is about to hit me and I am going to be drowning for the next ten weeks. This will surely make me appreciate the no homework life on break.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
