So, I am bored in the house and I am in the house bored. During this time of quarantine, I have had time to think about many things; sometimes a little too much. This is a good time to really think and take time to relax. I have found my thoughts to often drift to my family and friends. I began to think about how I appreciate and love them. It got me wondering what they think about when I come to mind. I found myself curious about what they first notice about me when they see me. So, I asked.

1. Mom: I guess what you’re wearing or your overall appearance 

This makes sense.

2. Dad: your face 

Short and simple.

3. Best friend #1: Idk, I guess like your happy personality..you always seem to be happy to see me. So that's the first thing I notice...Not specifically your smile, but rather the pep in your step. If that makes any sense, lol.

I like to think I am a happy person. And of course I am happy to see you! You're my best friend.

4. Best friend #2: Your hair! And I notice your makeup first whenever you wear eye shadow and stuff.

My hair is one of the things that I really like about myself so I'm glad it get's noticed! And I love makeup! It is fun and sometimes I do some wild looks so I'm glad they get noticed.

5. Best friend #3: Usually what you're wearing I think. You always dress super cute. My mom says she notices your hair first. I agree with that too lol 😄

Another one for clothing! I am glad you think I dress cute because sometimes I'm not so sure lol. Also, another one for the hair. Score!

6. Best friend #4 (I have a lot of best friends okay, this is totally normal): Probably your face

My face again. Hopefully this is a good thing.

7. Crush: I’d say probably your confidence honestly. You randomly coming up to me at *friends house* really threw me off, not in a bad way like you shouldn’t have but more like a “oh geez I gotta talk to this gorgeous girl on the spot” 😅 but once I got you to smile at one of my dumb jokes some voice in my head was like “ *his name* there’s a cute girl talking to you who goes to bible study and goes to GCU and lives in your building, you gotta get to know her more!”

Aw, my heart. He's so cute. But really? Confidence? I find it interesting that this is what he says because I don't think of myself as a confident person but it is greatly appreciated.

8. Best Friend #5 (yes another best friend): your smile! You have a very kind smile haha.

I love this! People don't often think of the affect that their smile can have on others. I used to hate my smile, but I have grown to like it.

9. New friend: your eyes :)

This is a new one, and I like it. You know, the eyes are the window to the soul and all that, right?

10. Cat: *stares at me in silence*

This isn't surprising, but we can all just agree that he's just admiring me, right?

I think it is so cool and interesting to hear what others notice about you. It can offer some new insight or bring appreciation to things that you maybe didn't like or think of before. I learned some new things about myself through this. I encourage you to try it simply for the fun of it. Who knows what you'll learn about yourself.

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.

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.
