Who needs love and affection anyway?

Last year I made a list of creative ways to get a kiss at midnight on New Year's, but after coming up kissless last holiday, I decided midnight kisses are for some people, but they're definitely not for me. In fact, there are a million things better than kisses on New Years. Here's a sample!

1. Confetti and Noisemakers

What's better than making out with a cute boy at midnight? Throwing confetti and blowing noisemakers in the ears of the couples who are making out at midnight.

2. Fireworks

It's midnight, you're out with friends, and there are fireworks everywhere. No boys needed.

3. Being Drunk

If you're doing things right, you won't even notice you have no one to kiss at midnight.

4. Fantasizing Your High School Musical NYE Moment

Your Troy Bolton could be hiding out anywhere and that could be the start of something new.

5. Midnight Texts From Your Mom

Because at least someone cares...

6. French Fries

Fries before guys, am I right?

7. Watching the Ball Drop

No plan? No problem. Ryan Seacrest always provides quality entertainment all night long.

8. Declaring Resolutions You Won't Keep

Because I'm totally going to lose 15 pounds, eat healthily, and start meditating every day.

9. Naps

What better way to ring in the New Year than with your favorite pastime?

10. Good Friends

Just because you don't have anyone to smooch, doesn't mean you have to ring in the New Year alone. Midnight hugs are just as great as kisses.

11. Making Money

Honestly, I work every year on New Year's Eve so the only thing I'll really be kissing is my paycheck.

12. Compile a List of Bad Decisions to Make in the New Year

Ya gotta plan ahead to be successful, ya know?

13. Sparklers

What's more fun than fire? Absolutely nothing.

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.
