What To Never Ever Forget When Travelling

Here is what I absolutely need in my handbag and suitcase.

What To Never Ever Forget When Travelling
Sadaf Mehdi

It's getting warmer here in NYC and that means travel season is back. My family and I are headed to India for my older sister's wedding and with it being the first wedding in our family, there is almost no end to the things we need to pack along with us for the trip. Here's a list of things to remember to bring along with you when travelling abroad:

1. Plug Adapter

Let's face it: even though it's a vacation, you'll have tons of work to catch up on for school or for your job. So you'll need to have a converter to charge your cellphone and laptop. Make sure you get the right ones for each depending on where you're travelling to!

2. A Big Travel Mug

If like me, you just can't forget the taste of American water for five weeks, then you must bring a mug to drink bottled water from. (You never know if the bottles there are clean or not.)

3. Mints, Gums, Or Some Mouth Refreshments

These are especially important if you experience travel sickness, or don't have time to brush your teeth on the airplane!

4. Earbuds

Hard to find where I'm from in India, but these are the one item that I cannot stand not using after taking a shower. I like knowing that my ears are going to be squeaky clean.

5. Hand Sanitizer

Whether you're eating outside in a restaurant or at home where you're staying, you need clean hands so you don't catch any germs. Happy eating!

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?

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.
