At some point, we've all experienced a sleepless night. Painfully attempting to quit tossing and turning can get you to fall asleep. Although you've probably experienced this a couple of times in your life, insomnia is something a little different. If you've ever been offered the pieces of advice or told any of the statements below, you might just be in the ranks of those who suffer from insomnia.

1. "You should try to go to bed earlier."

Well, first of all, it's not that easy, trust me if we could we would. Even if we do go to bed early just means we're gonna wake even sooner.

2. "You sleep a lot."

Sorry to bother you with my sleeping, but on nights insomnia hits hard and I have to work the next morning I am going to nap. So, please do not disturb.

3. "You look exhausted."

Well thank you. Sorry they don't make good enough make-up to hide the craters under my eyes.

4. "Maybe lay off caffeine."

DO NOT TELL ME HOW TO LIVE MY LIFE. Caffeine is the batteries of an insomniacs life. When we need a charge, you better part ways because if we can't reach the caffeine you will get hurt.

5. "I've heard lavender works wonders."

You're wrong. As much as I spend on aromatherapy from Bath & Body, all it does is make you smell good.

6. "Just get really drunk and you'll fall asleep instantly."

That's not even healthy. Seems more like a night of regrets. Although you probably passed out, only God knows the photos your friends took during that time and it will haunt you forever. So no thank you.

7. "Have you tired Melatonin?"

We probably have a list of different brands and strengths that don't work. Then when we take the gummies we swallow the whole bottle like it's candy.

8. "Have you tried *medication name*?"

Are you a doctor? You are not my doctor so please don't give me medical advice.

9. "Have you tried working out?'

If anything this will make things worse because working out makes you sweaty and then you have to shower which will make you wide awake.

10. "I fall asleep at the drop of a hat."

Well sorry not everyone was crafted by the gods. Satan must have been like I'm gonna test this one and make her sleep hell.

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.

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.
