11 Partial Conversations You Overhear On EVERY College Campus

It wouldn't be the same without these classic lines.

11 Partial Conversations You Overhear On EVERY College Campus
Nikki D'Ambrosio

1. "Let's go to the gym tomorrow, I don't feel like it today."

The classic response to when your friends ask you to go to the gym. You always say tomorrow, but will you actually go tomorrow? Odds are it's going to be a solid no.

2. "Can you go to class for me?"

It's just one of those questions that the answer will never change, but bonus points for consistently asking (wishing those points could count toward my grade, but unfortunately, I will just keep struggling — it's fine, I'm fine).

3. "Come hang out with me."

When you just can't do any work and the gym just is too far for comfort, making plans to do anything, but actually something productive, is the best way to avoid responsibilities.

4. "And Rebecca was like..."

Drama, drama, drama. Would college be as interesting without it?

5. "... Can Thursday come any sooner?"

No explanation needed.

6. "Can we order Chip tonight?"

Such a perfect excuse not to eat the gross dining hall food and eat something that will never disappoint.

7. "Do you think I will miss anything if I don't go to class?"

Everyone has asked themselves and/or their friends this at least once, probably more. This daunting question is a gamble, but definitely worth it if the answer is no (sorry Professor, I wasn't feeling well this morning).

8. "... And I think I failed, but it's whatever at this point."

It may sound like giving up to some, but it sounds like typical college to me.

9. "I just want my mom's food."

Homemade food is the reason why people miss class to get home faster, especially for breaks.

10. "When is break?"

Countdown to the next time I can eat a decent meal is all the motivation I need to get through the weeks… and Thursday of course.

11. "I don't feel like walking, but I'm so hungry."

The struggle is real when you have to make the decision between food and getting out of bed. Which do you really want more?

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.

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.
