Holidate: The Year-Round Rom-Com

This is a response to It’s Time To Rekindle Your Love For Autumn With 'When Harry Met Sally'

It is almost the holiday season, which means that for college students that it is time to come home, eat some good food, spend time with family, and overall just recuperate from the stresses of the fall semester. While there is all the fun and festivities of the holidays, there are also the questions that every young adult dreads; the "Are You Dating Yet? or "Do You Have a Boyfriend/Girlfriend" questions. That is the go-to question from every nosey aunt or grandma. Whether you're in a relationship or you're single, that question gets annoying after hearing it holiday after holiday. The Netflix original movie, Holidate, brings up an idea to those who are trying to avoid that awkward question.

Holidate follows Sloane (Played by Emma Roberts), and Jackson (Played by Luke Bracey), two singles who decide to become each other's holidates. A holidate is described in the movie as a date that you only have for the holidays. The movie focuses on Sloane and Jackson's many adventures on each holiday event. Will the two just stay as holidates or will their relationship evolve into something more? That, I cannot answer for you as I believe this a movie you should see for yourself.

One of the traits that set Holidate apart from your typical Christmas rom-com is that it doesn't just take place on Christmas. It takes place on every holiday. Yes, every holiday including St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, and Fourth of July. More holidays mean more wacky rom-com-style misadventures, including one featuring some fireworks.

Whether it is Christmas time, Halloween, or not a holiday at all, Holidate is a great go-to rom-com. It may not be a critically acclaimed movie, but, it is a pretty fun time, which is what a rom-com should be. It is a sweet, silly movie with characters that have a surprising sense of realism to them that you would not typically expect from a rom-com.

So, check out Holidate this season. You won’t regret it!

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.

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.
