The Seven Signs You're Not At Home Anymore

Winter break has finally come to an end.

The Seven Signs You're Not At Home Anymore

No doubt everyone is typically pretty anxious to get back to school after a nice long winter break, but there's no denying that being home definitely has some perks. And your sure to quickly remember them once your back on campus.

1. Shower shoes

For the past six weeks you've enjoyed a nice long shower without having to worry about your little piggies touching the bottom of the shower but you are now warmly welcomed back by the mysterious college shower floor.

2. Headphones

You've enjoyed the pleasure of binge-watching Netflix without any headphones, playing your show as loudly as you'd like. But now that your roomie has an 8 a.m., in order to keep the peace, you decide it's best to plug your those headphones in.

3. Walking to the dining hall

The conveniences of a stocked fridge right down stairs is really something you take for granted until you realize that it's a blizzard outside, you have no money to order in and the five-minute dining hall walk seems unbearable.

4. Car privileges

Although this may not apply to all, some of us don't have a car at school and have to rely on your lovely friends or the campus shuttle to get around so the little bit of freedom to cruise around where we want, when we want when your home is a nice change. Making it return to a bus packed to the brim.

5. Laundry

Whether you do it yourself when you're home or you leave to poor mom, you know your back when you go to switch your clothes from the washer to the dryer to find that you were two seconds too late and some has already thrown your wet clothes all over the counter so they could steal your washer.

6. Alarm clocks

Even if it's not yours chance are once school starts back up you or your roomies phone will be blaring some sort of annoying noise that will wake you up just in time for class. Something you haven't missed over break due to the luxury of sleeping in.

7. Living with your friends

When you're at home you probably got to see your high school besties all the time but nothing beats living with your best friends. You know you've returned when you can just yell into the next room when you're bored.

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.

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.
