It's always important to be kind to everyone we meet. A simple gesture like smiling may be the highlight of someone's day. As World Kindness Day comes up, these are a few easy ways to be kinder to others around us.

1. Smile at a stranger

Smiling at someone is the easiest way to be kind. A simple smile could make someone's day.

2. Give someone new a compliment

Receiving a compliment from a stranger is sometimes better than receiving a compliment from someone you know. Initiating a conversation by complimenting someone may result in making a new friend.

3. Send an appreciative text

Sending someone an appreciative text is an easy way of letting them know that you are thinking about them. Getting a text from someone I haven't spoken to in a while is one of my favorite feelings in the world.

4. Thanking someone for something simple

Sometimes it's necessary to thank someone for doing something simple like making their bed. It's important to be recognized for the small things we do.

5. Give a treat to someone

Baked treats are the key to any sugar addicts heart. Baking something simple such as cookies can be a great way to make someone's day.

6. Talk to someone new

It's never fun being the new kid and a simple conversation can really make someone's day. It could also result in making a new friend which is always a good thing.

7. Make your friend a playlist

Music is always a great way to show your love an appreciation for someone. Apps like Spotify make it really easy to make playlists and add songs that remind you of the person who the playlist is for.

8. Donate clothes to people who can't afford any

We often take for granted how much we actually have without realizing that there are others around us struggling. Donating clothes is an easy way to help others in need.

9. Help your sibling with school work.

We could all use some help with our homework sometimes. Taking a half hour out of your day may not seem like a lot to you, but to your younger sibling, it could mean the world.

10. Make a small sacrifice so they can get their way

All of us have to make sacrifices sometimes. Making a sacrifice about something small may not impact you much but could mean the world to someone else. This could be as simple as letting your sibling choose which movie to watch.

11. Treat yourself to something nice

It's always important for us to be kind to ourselves. We should be taking care of ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally. On this day, make sure to be kind to your bodies and take care of yourself.

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
