Women Can Too!

It’s time for everyone to realize that women can too!

Women Can Too!

A lot of times being in a majority male class it comes with its hardships. As if highschool isn't hard enough it seems like the boys, and men, want to make it harder. I think a lot of times, it is hard for a boy, or man, to realize that women can too! When the very little amount of girls, we have in my graduating class (which is only three) accomplish something the boys did not, they seem to complain and argue. It is sad when the girls get accepted into their dream school, and one of the boys who doesn't even want to go to college, makes them think low of themselves just for accomplishing and getting that much.

Most of the girls in my class, including myself, have to work hard for everything they accomplish or they want to get. Some of the boys, on the other hand, get fed with a silver spoon and get everything they ever wanted, and belittle the girls because of it. When the girls stand up for something they believe in, or stick up for themselves, the boys call them out and say how they'll never go anywhere, or do anything sometimes.
I believe, that all highschool boys need to learn that women can too! Women can achieve something over a man! Women can go after their dreams and achieve them, even if a man is too lazy to reach them.

Boys, and men, need to realize it's not about who has it handed to them, it's about who wants it most! Guess what boys? Right now the women are wanting it and going after it!
The girls in my senior class know what they're doing after graduation, they have their acts together, their future planned. Boys, you can't even say that much about yours can you? But with that being said, women can be just as bad and they need to learn to step down and applaud a man if he does something great.

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.
