The Top 5 Winter Activities No Winter Break Is Complete Without

Winter is my favorite season not only because I absolutely love the cold and snow, but also because of these fun winter activities that I look forward throughout the whole year.

So if you're not the biggest fan of the season, try these activities and maybe your mind will be changed.

1. Snowboarding, Skiing or Tubing 

Devon Lee

I have been snowboarding for the past nine years, and I am honestly so grateful to have had the opportunity to do so.

I mean, it's basically like sledding, but with a bit more danger, and besides, who doesn't love sledding?

I'm kidding, it's safer than that, calm down people.

But seriously, even though I have fallen on my ass and scorpioned, which is when you fall on your stomach and your snowboard comes very close to smacking your head, more times than I would like to admit, I look forward to going to the slopes every year.

If skiing or snowboarding does not seem enticing to you, tubing is always an option, too.

2. Ice Skating 


Ice skating is a super fun activity to do with a bunch of friends and/or family.

When I was younger, my siblings, cousins and I used to go to the rink several times during winter break.

Just remember to wear gloves. Don't ask questions.

3. Baking cookies

My younger sister is extremely artistic, so when we bake cookies, it's hardcore.

She makes a variety of different types, but I personally like it when she makes shortbread cookies that we can then decorate with royal icing.

Mine always turn out looking like shit, so we eat those, and display hers on the nice cookie stand but regardless of the looks, baking cookies always bring us together over the holidays.

4. Snowball fight

If you're in a climate where it snows a lot, this one is for you.

Now I'm not just talking about going outside and chucking snow at each other, oh no.

When my siblings and I have snowball fights, it's so much more than that. You have to build your own snow forts, make your snowball supply, create alliances. It is intense.

5. Blanket Forts

I know this may seem lame, but given the world of Pinterest, blanket forts are no longer just blanket forts.

They can be super nice and extremely cute. They are great to watch a movie in or just chill with friends and family.

Plus, what better way to bring people closer together than in a cozy fort of blankets?

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.
