What's On My Summer Reading List? These Books

Lots of books, that's what.

What's On My Summer Reading List? These Books
Guilia Bertelli

I’ve found that I read way more in the summer than I do during the school year. I mean, it makes sense. I don’t have school, work, and homework, so I have a lot more time for reading. I have bookshelves upon bookshelves of books that I haven’t read yet and I’m getting ready to head to camp for four weeks so I will have plenty of time to read! Here’s a look at what I’m bringing with me to camp and what’s on my summer reading list.

1. “YES: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania” by Bryan Danielson and Craig Tello

I started reading this one of the plane ride home from Disney last week and I fell in love almost instantly. Daniel Bryan has always been one of my favorite wrestlers and his story is so inspiring that I knew I had to learn all I could about his career. I’m so excited to learn more!

2. “The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic” by Jason Surrell

Speaking of Disney, The Haunted Mansion is probably my favorite ride in all of Disney property. My brother found this book during our trip and I knew right away that I wanted to read it. I am excited to learn more about the history of this ride (because hi, history nerd here) and I’m excited to bring a little bit of my love for Disney to my adventures this summer!

3. “Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard

I was recommended this book by my friends about a year ago now and I still haven’t read it. I know, I’m sorry. I love mysteries and suspense books and this one definitely fits into that category. It’s loosely based on ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and has that classic ‘Once Upon A Time’ feel. (RIP OUAT)

4. “Sisterhood of the Squared Circle” by Pat Laprade and Dan Murphy

Women’s sports, and specifically Women’s wrestling, has always interested me. When I saw some female WWE Superstars hyping up this book on social media, it immediately got my attention. I am so intrigued to read about the history of Women's wrestling and to see just how far it has come!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

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?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
