8 Reasons Why Going On Vacation Is Just The Best
Alex Sobczak / Facebook

Traveling is always fun, and getting to go on vacation over the summer is honestly the best. Here's why:

Getting to explore a new place

There's a seemingly endless list of places I've never been. Getting to cross off at least one is worth it. It's so much fun finding out what a place you've never been has to offer.

Family shenanigans

Spending quality time with family (sans stress) is the best. Make sure you do fun, silly things together.

Fun with friends

Going on vacation with friends? Also super fun. Live it up in a new place with the people you love.

Trying new things

Boat rides, hiking, parasailing, dolphin watching, fishing, tubing, cliff jumping, jet skiing, ziplining, snorkeling, being a tourist. Vacation is the perfect time to try new things that you might not get to do every day (and maybe even raise your heart rate a little bit).

Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine

Sunrises, sunsets, sunbathing, and just plain old sunshine. Sunshine is my absolute favorite thing.

So. Much. Food.

Give me all the seafood! Vacation is a great time to try new foods and also enjoy delicious restaurant meals. Bonus points if you get to have a meal with a beautiful view.

Road trips / Hanging out amongst the clouds

Road trips are fun because you get to drive through countless cities, see some landmarks and sights, look curiously at that person who still uses physical maps, and have hours on end to do whatever activity you please while trapped in a car with nothing else to do besides said activity. Plane trips, I imagine, provide constant intriguing and gorgeous views. With such great options, the trip there and back doesn't sound so bad.

Getting away from it all

Everyone needs a break from their everyday lives, and vacations are the perfect getaway from all of life's stresses. Next stop: rest and relaxation.

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.

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.
