6 Rumors That ARE NOT True About Volkswagen Beatles

I drive a 2004 Volkswagen Beatle. For as long as I could remember that was the car I had wanted. When I turned sixteen my parents surprised me with a lime green bug. I was so excited! But when I went back to school, a lot of people were commenting on my car. Some were happy for me, others questioned my parents' sense of judgment as to why they would get me such a car. I got a lot of criticism about the safety of my new ride. Here are a few things people who drive Beatles would like you to know!

1. It's just as safe as any other car! 

Despite it's small size, the Beatles have multiple airbags and safety features. So before you say something to criticize a Volkswagen look up the research.

2. The inside does smell like crayons!

As silly as it sounds, our Crayola colored cars do have a crayon like smell in them.

3. We do sometimes see people punching each other saying "Slug Bug". 

Nothing amuses me more when I pull into a drive through and I see people hitting each other!

4. I do drive it in the winter!

My little green bug isn't just a summer car. I drive it during the winter and I go to and from school and work just fine. Much like any other car, I take my time and are cautious.

5. Despite the small stature of the car, its actually got a decent amount of room. 

For as small as the outside looks, it can comfortably seat 3 extra people.

6. We do wave at other people driving Beatles. 

You could say were the most friendly people on the road!

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.

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.
