Being A Scorpio

Why I love being a Scorpio: The Most Hated Sign

Being A Scorpio

Although astrology is becoming more popular and mainstream, most people do not know the basics of the astrology signs and the characteristics that follow.

I am a Scorpio, which means we are born in the time of October 23rd to November 22nd. I am born on November 10th, which means I am smack in the middle of Scorpio season. What you need to know about Scorpios; we have a hard exterior, we have our walls up and it can be challenging to break them down so we can let you in. Although we look tough, stern and somewhat out there, we are honestly very soft and vulnerable on the outside.

Sometimes the hardest people who look like they don't care, who have their guard up, are the ones that care the most, the ones that are the softest. Scorpios are a water sign, they react quickly and often times do not think of the consequences that follow their decisions. Everyone always tells me "oh that's such a Scorpio thing to do" or "wow, thank God I'm not a Scorpio."

Scorpios are most compatible with cancers, Capricorns, Virgos and Pisces. Scorpios are least compatible with Leos, Aquarius and Taurus. I have friends from each zodiac sign, my sister is a Virgo, my father is a Cancer and my mother is a Leo. Although these are the stereotypes that certain signs do not get along with other signs, you can always make accommodations with who you become friends with.

My best friends are Aquarius's and Leo's. Astrology to me is not just pseudoscience, I feel as though learning about different astrological signs, learning about the compatibility and reading your horoscope is such a small but powerful way to become more spiritual as well as educated on maybe why you or your friends do the things they do. Learning about the signs and their characteristics can help you predict behavior, explain someone's actions or even prevent you from having that sign again in your life.

Most people have an experience with a sign in their lives and they say never again. Handle astrology however you like, but please stop hating on Scorpios, I promise you we are not that bad.

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.

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.
