Understanding Richmond Weather

Never have I been somewhere that experiences all four seasons in one week.

Understanding Richmond Weather

No matter where you are from, you can't deny the madness that is Richmond weather. In January this year we were floating around freezing for one week, then up to 50°F the next, oh and then there was the snow. February brought more madness with a high of 75°F one Monday and a low of 37°F on Tuesday. March was beautiful with highs of 80°F and clear blue skies, that is until it snowed, again, during the 10K race down Monument Avenue.

So what have I learned from living in Richmond? Well, you can never assume that just because you were in a sun dress and Jack Rogers the day before you won't need your ski jacket and Uggs the next day.

You will pretty much flit back and forth between spring and winter for the first three months of the year.

But Richmond looks beautiful whether it is snowing or the sun is shining. Plus due to snow we have had three snow days and more delayed starts. NO 9 a.m. classes!

The problem with this, though, is that dhall food hours are limited and the despite all the take out/delivery options only Chinese Chef would deliver. Sweet and sour chicken for days.

Richmond is such a beautiful city and when it does turn to spring the trees do not disappoint.

Once you get the hang of the weather in Richmond you will find the clear days, warm or not, lift your mood and make the walk around campus sparkle a little more than usual. Just don't forget to check the weather app before you leave!

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.
