If You Want To Date The "Perfect Girl", Don't Date Me

I have many flaws

If You Want To Date The "Perfect Girl", Don't Date Me
Stephanie Austin

Has any girl besides myself thought about how exhausting dating can be? Like having to be found by the perfect guy, going on many dates to get to know each other, conquering the infamous awkward first kiss, and having to figure out yet another person. How tiring... why can't we just fast forward to the part where I find 'the one' marry him and then live happily ever after? Well, that would be too easy and life is far from that.

Aside from that, living in this day and time makes dating even harder. This is what I mean by that: I am a girl with morals, goals, and a busy schedule. I don't have time to play petty mind games, I don't have time to let you string me a long while you try and get your life together, and I am definitely not interested in dating for "fun". To add to that, girls in today's time should be toned and a size 2-4, who eat extremely healthy with the occasional splurge in a fat free ice cream. Well let me tell you, cheeseburgers are mighty fine and if I want one, Lord knows I'm gonna eat one! Not saying that eating right and exercising aren't good for you because they are, but we have to be realistic here. I don't have long blonde hair and the year round bronzed skin, that is totally and completely flawless. For those who are lucky enough to have the flawless skin... us other girls hate you (not really, we're just jealous). I in fact have short hair, I am a size none of your business, and yes when my stress levels exceed 110% I get a pimple *gasp*, but that is just life.

So why do I say I am "not the perfect girl" well here is why... I will get mad, cry over a hair being out of place, and complain to you when my day has been the worst. I won't always be happy, but I don't expect the guy I date to always have good days either. I will be honest with him if that means possibly hurting his feelings, because I care enough about our relationship to be open and let him know how I am really feeling. I will demand respect and expect to be treated like a lady with dignity. I want to be lead and kept accountable not only in life but my spiritual life as well, and the list could go on for an eternity.

Some might say that is too much to expect or how on earth can one person possibly be understanding of all of that. Well here is a little 411, if a man really truly loves you like they SAY they do, they will also SHOW you. Some might question how I think all of those things don't make up the "perfect" girlfriend, and what I would simply say to that is, it's because I will mess up and that's okay!

Lastly, enjoy life! Love people, and don't search for the right one. They most likely will show up when you least expect!

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.

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.
