Food coma time

When Calories Don't Count

We've all been there -- when we're stuffing our faces, and it all of a sudden hits us how many calories we are consuming. It's one of the worst feelings when we come to the realization that we are actually disgusting. There are a few exceptions to this feeling.

On your period.

The food cravings are insane. There is no knowing what you're going to want to be eating besides lots and lots of chocolate. Calories do not count this week. The bloating will go away soon enough

When you're pregnant.

Let's be real, here -- your baby is eating the majority of the food anyway. They will make you crave the weirdest stuff, and you will have to agree. Therefore, the calories don't matter because they're not for you.

On Thanksgiving.

Put on your fat pants, because you're getting stuffed tonight. There is no way you're going to gain ten pounds over night, so eat all you want.

On Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, all the calories in the world, and none of the weight associated with it.

When you're sad.

Being sad is synonymous with eating all the ice cream, ever. That's what it's for. Thus, it does not count.

Your birthday.

You can have your cake and eat it, too!

On your cheat day.

This day is for you to catch up on all the calories that you skipped all week. All the good you did cancels out the bad you're about to do, so over indulge.

When you're drunk.

You either won't remember the calories, or you'll be throwing them up anyway, so treat yo'self.

So eat, eat, eat. You deserve it.

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.

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.
