If you were anything like me in high school…or now in college, then you may relate to these things. Of course, I can't speak for every quiet person, but for the most part I think we may have had most of the same experiences.

​1. When you answer a question in class and hear the muffled voices of people saying "they talk?!".

2. When you tell a joke and everyone is shocked that you have a sense of humor.

3. You observe EVEYTHING around you that happening in class because you’re not shouting nonsense or getting up to “go to the bathroom” every 10 minutes (a.k.a. you have ALL the tea).

4. People might forget that you are actually in their classes…including the teachers.

5. You’re always told to “speak up!” when you finally decide to raise your hand in class.

6. People may assume you don’t have a personality since you don’t say every thought on your mind.

7. You’re a great listener and note taker for group projects and don’t mind taking on that responsibility.

8. You’re more active and funny on social media than in person because you may have a weird sense of humor…but it’s hilarious.

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.

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.

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:

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.
