Kardashians By The Numbers

Over the break, I spent copious amounts of time watching "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and I don't regret a second. My time spent with the Kardashians was wonderful. I watched them go to St. Barts, got stressed out when Kim almost got diabetes and felt Kendall's pain when Kylie spent too much time with Tyga. I re-downloaded the "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" app. I stalked Kylie Jenner's Tumblr. I'm in deep right now, but my obsession isn't so much about the Kardashians themselves. Sure, I think Kourtney is hilarious and I'd commit crimes to look like Kendall – but I am thoroughly convinced that the Kardashian women make some of the smartest business decisions.

Now, I know what you're thinking:

The Kardashians are incredibly wealthy, and, yes, I will admit that their rise to fame was unconventional and ethically questionable. But having a sex tape isn't against the law. Whether Kris orchestrated the whole thing is another question, but, even if she did, I doubt Kim holds any grudges against her momager.

To most people, the Kardashians are a family who cheated the system. None of them have a specific talent or gift, aside from their looks. But looking at the Kardashians by the numbers, I think they all have a talent – just like Mark Cuban or Kevin O'Leary, (I also watched a lot of "Shark Tank") the Kardashians are absolutely brilliant at making money.

The Kardashian's and the Jenner's net worth is estimated to be about $300 million. The family makes around $500,000 per episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," which is currently in its eleventh season. Kim Kardashian's freemium mobile game "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" (which I just fell victim to once again) rakes in a staggering $81,000 in daily revenue. Kylie and Kendall have released three different clothing lines. Kylie's Lip Kit sold out in a mere 30 seconds. Kim, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie's apps and websites have over one million subscribers. In other words, one million people are willing to spend $3 per month to know more about these sisters.

So, as a young woman pursuing an education, the Kardashians do frustrate me a bit. I'm putting in long hours studying for exams and writing papers while Kim flies to Paris to have her favorite cheesecake.

In the end, I will probably never make as much money as any of the Kardashians. I'll never look like them, or get a million subscribers for an app about my life (which would probably consist of videos of me eating and crying about dog pictures). But thank God that I have a show that is on E! pretty much all day, several apps and a game that will allow me to live vicariously through the Kardashians until the day that Kris calls my parents to tell them that I'm actually her sixth daughter.

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.
