The Life Of A Low Maintenance Girl

I just value my sleep over looking nice.

The Life Of A Low Maintenance Girl

There are some girls that wake up at 6:00 a.m. to start off the day with flawless skin, wavy hair and a perfect smokey eye. And then there's me, still sleeping when I have to leave in 10 minutes. I admire those girls so much. In a far off world, I would be one of them, but I'm honestly way too lazy. My laziness has amounted to these events happening on the daily.

1. Makeup Tutorials Are A Foreign Art To You

You can spend the entire day learning how to achieve a cute summer glow and end up looking like this:

2. You Make Every Complaint Possible When Getting Ready

"My arm hurts. My hair isn't even curling right. This shade is ugly. Why did I think this was a good idea?"

3. And the Process Takes Forever

You think I know how to do this in a timely fashion? I don't have enough practice for that.

4. Shopping Is Antagonizing

I see the shirt I want, I grab the size I need and I wanna check out. Browsing any longer than five minutes will drive me up a wall.

5. Half of Your Wardrobe Is Baggy T-Shirts

Do I have nice clothes? Tons. But this old tee is so comfy and I don't have to wear a bra with it, so there ya go.

6. You Eat Like Your Life Depends on It

Four chicken burritos with a side of queso, please.

7.It's Completely Normal for Your Hair to Go Unbrushed for Days

That's what the messy bun is for. Duh.

8. So. Many. Pairs. Of. Leggings

It looks like I tried when I really just hate jeans and wanted my butt to look good.

9.Eyeliner? Forget It

You could give me a stencil and the hand of God and I would still have an uneven, crooked wing.

10. Formal Events Are Hit or Miss

You're either excited to be Cinderella for a day or sweating your foundation off and itching at your dress.

11. Sometimes It Becomes a Game to See How Long You Can Go Without Shaving Your Legs

Look at my body go.

12. You'd Rather Lie on the Couch Than Go Out, Because Getting Ready

If it means I need to wear pants, it's not that important.

13. Nobody Thinks You Look Drastic on a No Makeup Day

Because every day is a no makeup day. And nobody asks me if I look sickly, because they're used to this pale goodness already.

14. But When You Do Decide to Give Effort, You Slay

Rock it, girl. Own that.

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.
