After feeling pretty bored recently, as I tend to at the start of new semesters, I found myself turning to my Snapchat friends to learn about the best ways to spice things up a little bit! Here's what they have to say.

1. "Do something outrageous you wouldn't normally do."

This could look like talking to someone unexpected, experimenting with new foods, or even joining a new club!

2. "Go on spontaneous adventures, big or small."

3. "Go somewhere you have never been!"

This could be a drive with no destination or walking to a new spot in town you haven't seen.

4. "Talk to a person for fun."

This ties into some of the other ideas here, but talking to someone you wouldn't normally just to get out of your comfort zone or freshen things up is a great way to spice things up, be bold, and get to know someone new!

5. "Piercings, go on a trip, treat yourself day, buying a new outfit"

Spicing up your life can totally look like treating yourself or finding something to do that makes you happy but you don't have tons of opportunities to do.

6. "Start a new hobby."

I love this idea; I have been meaning to learn how to embroider!

7. "Change your hair."

As someone who recently did this, it does certainly spice things up. 10/10 would recommend.

8. "Say random sh*t to people."

You have to be a certain type of bold for this one, but hey, if you're never going to see them again...

9. "Romanticize everything."

This might be my favorite one on the list. Main character energy always.

10. "Dance across the sidewalk."

11. "Listen to at least one new song every day."

12. "Instead of getting upset when bad things happen, just laugh. It really keeps people on their toes."

I have actually been laughing at the minor inconveniences I am coming across and it is making a huge difference in my mental health.

13. "Do one thing a day that scares you."

14. Go somewhere after midnight.

Please be safe

15. "Saying hi to any stranger you make eye contact with."

16. "Start lying to strangers."

This might not be the most morally sound advice, but it could be fun!

17. "Listen to 'Reputation' by Taylor Swift while you walk and you'll start strutting involuntarily."

18. "Buy a box of Capri Suns and relive your childhood."

19. "Buy a razor scooter."

20. Do something that makes you happy but that you don't let yourself do often!!

This is my own suggestion, but if you love Starbucks and only let yourself go on special occasions, make this a special occasion! Buy ice cream on a Wednesday. Life is short — stop waiting for happiness.

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.

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?

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.
