Thanksgiving Dinner with Parks and Recreation

These iconic characters celebrate Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Dinner with Parks and Recreation
E! Online

If someone asked me how many times I've watched every season of Parks and Recreation, I'd have to lie and say twice. However, it's more like four or five times, if I answered honestly. So since I have a bit of an obsession, I decided to enable it even more by writing about what our beloved characters would do on Thanksgiving Day!

1. First of all, Leslie would throw the biggest Thanksgiving Day party for the Parks and Rec team.

Most likely, she'd begin with a speech about what Thanksgiving meant to America and then go on to open a slideshow she created just for the occasion until someone finally stopped her so they could begin eating.

2. Tom would be dressed to the nines and worry about staining his clothes while taking perfect, Instagrammable pictures of his food.

Because we all want to follow Tom Haverford on Instagram.

3. Of course, Jerry and Gayle would show up in matching Thanksgiving themed outfits.

The cutest couple besides Leslie and Ben, to be honest.

4. Ben would be sitting next to Leslie, eating a Thanksgiving version of a calzone that she made just for him.

Hopefully, this one wouldn't betray him.

5. April would be in Andy's lap, whining about being at the Thanksgiving party while Andy would investigate the missing Turkey slices from his plate as Bert Macklin.

Of course, the turkey would be eaten off his plate by Champion.

6. In order to stay in top physical shape, Chris would have brought his own healthier versions of stuffing, cornbread, and other Thanksgiving delicacies, which no one would eat.

After dinner, Chris would probably run a few miles just for fun.

7. Meanwhile, Ron would pile his plate high with the turkey that he cooked while opening up a new bottle of Lagavulin and glaring at Chris' healthy plate.

Also, there'd be zero vegetables whatsoever.

8. Donna would be dressed to impress while planning her and Tom's next Treat Yo Self outing.

She'd also talk about the latest Scandal episode while live tweeting the dinner activities.

9. Finally, Ann would be next to Leslie, keeping her from consuming an unhealthy amount Thanksgiving waffles (pumpkin spice waffles from JJ's Diner).

Thank god for Ann.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
