Understanding Pokémon Go

Fifteen signs that you pogo with the best of them.

Understanding Pokémon Go

Wanting to be the very best has been a dream throughout many generations of Pokémon lovers, and finally we can catch them all! But that does not mean that it is going to be easy, and by now we can all tell who is Pogoing, and who is not. Here are 15 ways to help those who don't play to understand!

1. This is what it feels like when your app loads.

While we are not exactly in the virtual reality with Pokémon yet, turning on that app feels like entering a whole new world filled with the creatures of our childhood.

2. This is what it feels like when the app does not load

We understand that there are still a lot of bugs to work out, but this server issue is starting to get out of hand.

3. What you expect to see in a new area

I will catch you Pikachu...it is only a matter of time

4. What you actually see

Pidgeys....so many Pidgeys...

5. When you catch a cool Pokémon with one throw


5. When you swear the Pokémon are running from you

But there always seems to be a person around that knows exactly what you are looking for.

6. When you find a Pokémon you want and you are out of Pokéballs

Niantic has got to be toying with us. I know they want me to spend money I do not have.

7. When your friend picks a different team

At least if I GO alone my server might work better.

8. When someone sets up a lure at a Poké stop

It is a great way to meet new people...and to be trampled.

9. When you are settling in for the night but you notice something new on the front lawn

There is no time to waste. Three steps could be three miles!

10. When you finally hatch an egg

"I would walk a thousand miles..."

11. And it turns out to be something lame

I have so many rattata's I do not know what to do

12. What it feels like to play Pokémon GO and what it feels like the day after

"My quads hurt so bad." "Did you go to the gym yesterday?" "Yeah I guess you could say that."

13. When you face your fears to catch Ghost Pokémon

"Hello darkness my old friend"

14. When you are a leader of a gym for ten minutes

I know I can't defend it forever, but everyone knows that I did it once.

15. And of course, when you finally catch them all


Have fun out there!

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.
