Why Chandler Bing Is The Guy You Should Marry And I Couldn't BE Any More Sure

You'll be laughing your whole life, which is all you can really ask for


Chandler Bing is the funny guy. He's the guy you want to hang out with, who cracks jokes all of the time, who is terrible at landing dates with the ladies, who has a stable job but hates his job, and who is always down to hang with his Friends. Chandler is the guy that at the beginning of Friends you think will be a bachelor forever. He's sarcastic, cynical, calls his friends out on every weird or little quirk they have and cracks jokes even when no one else wants to be laughing. He's the guy with commitment issues and if you're new to the show, he's the guy that you can probably relate to dating a few times in your life. The guy you like or think you had a great time with on a date, but he's probably knit-picking every little detail about you apart to his friends. That being said, however, Chandler Bing is the guy you should marry.

Chandler is hilarious. And although I can quote Joey (spoiler alert that has nothing to do with the show) when he finds out his little sister is pregnant and says, "Dina, if he's funny, LAUGH.", the reason you end up marrying Chandler and all of his wit is because everyone needs someone who will make a stupid joke in their life. Everyone needs someone who will cut the tension and it's even better when the person you fall in love with and end up marrying is the person who knows when to crack a joke to make your day a little bit better. Chandler will make you smile. He's self-deprecating and is always willing to make you smile at his expense, and he's a king of the stupid dad jokes. And honestly, what good is the guys you marry is he's not good with the dad jokes?

Chandler is successful. He might not always love the career he's chosen, but he knows how to make a living and keep an income. He's the type of guy who talks badly about his job all of the time but is really good at it and therefore has made a really good living because of it. He's not going to spend a ton of money on something irresponsible, but he's also not going to flaunt what he has. He's the type of guy who can afford to take you out to dinner, and would love to do so, and he also won't ever throw in your face that he's got a lot of money. He's stable and that's all we can really ask for.

Chandler is loyal and a great friend. He's there for the people who matter to him and that's the best quality a husband could have. He goes to bat for his friends and he'll always be there to pick them up when they need it. He lends a hand and quite a few dollars throughout the show to his best friends and rarely asks for anything in return. He's devoted to being there for the people that matter to him and he's not afraid to apologize or make something up to those he loves when he falls short. He's even willing to sit in a box for an entire day to show just how much his best friend means to him and if that's not loyalty, I'm not sure what is.

Chandler is the guy you marry. Once you get past the commitment-issue stage, Chandler is the perfect guy. He's funny, loyal, handsome, smart, well-educated, successful and just a good guy. He might make a joke at the wrong time or make a few mistakes along the way, but at the end of the day, he's the guy you want to settle down with and start a life with.

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.

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.
