In order from common to uncommon: get ready to geek out!

The Top 14 Nerdiest Fandoms

We are all a fan of something. Everyone has that one obsession that just consumes them and they never fall out of love with it. "But Seth, what is a fandom?" Well, a fandom is a book series, show, anime, comic, or some other form of entertainment that has a cult of adoring fans - who will either admit it or not - following their every interaction with the outside world. So, in the spirit of Halloween and everyone dressing up, I give you: "The Top 14 Nerdiest Fandoms".

14. Harry Potter

The best fantasy film franchise in history is also one of my favorite book series ever! I have read all the Harry Potter books seven times! Thank you J.K Rowling!

13. Disney

From princesses to mice with gloves, Disney may have the biggest fan base of any fandom known to man.

12. Once Upon A Time

This new spin on Fairy Tales has captured the hearts of millions since 2011!

11. Star Wars

There was a point in my life where I could quote every line of the Original Trilogy.

10. Doctor Who

We all need some "wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey stuff" every now and again!

9. Game of Thrones

I've never been a fan of Game of Thrones, but everybody else seems to have gotten the memo!

8. Lord of the Rings

I love Lord of the Rings. I'm not as well versed in it as other things I love but my twitter handle is @hobbitinaUKhat, if that counts for anything.

7. Star Trek

There is a wonderful universe within Star Trek! I have seen every episode of the Original Series and have my own blue shirt!

6. Detective Comics

Better villains.

5. Marvel Comics

Better heroes.

4. Nightmare Before Christmas

It takes a special person to love Tim Burton. I can be that person depending on what mood I'm in, but my sweetheart has a special place in her heart for Mr. Skellington.

3. Battlestar Galactica

So now we are transitioning into the super nerd-tastic stuff. Battlestar Galactica is for those people who can't find love in Star Wars or Star Trek and need to be eradicated.

2. World of Warcraft

I used to know some guys that went batty over WOW. I never got into it myself, but the guys and girls that play it have their own little universe.

1. My Little Pony

I think everyone knows at least one "Bronie" - that is, a guy who enjoys watching My Little Pony. They are a strange people... But, you do you! Be strange!

Everyone geeks out about something! So whatever it is, nerd loud and proud, my friends! Grab your lightsabers, wands, gaming computers, Segas, Dreamcasts, phasers, or Princess dresses and go forth!

And remember:

"The Force will be with you always." - Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi

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.

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.
