To The Girl Who Loves My Best Friend Next

There are a few things you need to know before you fall in love with him.

To The Girl Who Loves My Best Friend Next

First things first, you have to kill the spiders because he absolutely will not under any circumstances.

Don't make fun of his car, or the fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview mirror. Yes, it's an old man car but he loves the Pimp Mobile (yes he will actually call his car the Pimp Mobile, just roll with it).

Have an appreciation for "Harry Potter." If not an appreciation, then at least have seen the movies.

He's going to flirt with the waitress or the girl in the drive-thru, or the old lady standing in front of you in line. He doesn't mean any harm by it and he doesn't love you any less - he just doesn't know how to not be charming.

Understand that he's one of the world's pickiest eaters and will probably (definitely) question half the things you eat. The boy doesn't even eat bacon - trust me, I don't understand it either.

Don't ask him what he thinks of your shoes because if they're not anything Adidas, they're not worth his time. Honestly, if you ask his opinion he'll probably say they're ugly and then you'll be offended so it's safer to just not ask.

He needs to take his space and play his video games sometimes. He gets very excited about them - just wait until the world championship tournament for League of Legends rolls around. But he will text you back, I promise.

He's going to try and create fights with other people that make absolutely no sense to be fighting about. Sometimes, he just really likes to argue so it's usually best to let him blow off some steam and then he won't even remember what he wanted to fight about later.

If you're getting him a drink, don't put ice in it. He'll probably stop asking specifically so just remember to leave the ice.

If you're out somewhere and there's a cat, let him freak out and go pet it because finding a new cat to play with, even for a little, probably just made his day.

He's always hungry for Chinese (I'm talking three in the morning always). If he's having a bad day, or you just wanna surprise him, get him beef and broccoli from a Chinese restaurant but be sure not to mix the rice in with the beef and broccoli and do not, under any circumstances, forget the chopsticks because he will pout.

He's full disclosure. Tell him everything you think and feel because he will do the same for you. Don't push him away. He wants to help and he wants to be there, so let him in.

And most importantly: take care of his heart, if you've got it, because he's such a special person and the best friend I've ever had. Constantly remind him that you care and you're there for him, and be good to him - because he'll be incredible to you. He'll have you laughing on the days you need it most, and he'll always be there for you to fall back on. He deserves so many good things so be what he deserves. Love him 'til he's almost sick of it, and then love him some more because he will do the same for you.

If you don't you get to deal with me.

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.
