12 Reasons Why Being An Adult Is Great

Responsibilities are so much easier since you're an adult.

12 Reasons Why Being An Adult Is Great
Poorly Drawn Lines

So you're an adult now and you've finally entered the "real world" everyone has warned you about. Don't stress it, "adulthood" is stress-free and easy living. No responsibilities to worry about other than what you're going to eat tonight and what fun plans you will have this weekend! Adulthood is awesome.

1. You get to pay your own bills

Because who doesn't love getting their paycheck and spending half of it on bills within the first two days?

2. More bills then you can count

It's not just one bill, it's a phone, cable, car, utilities, insurance, house/apt/rent, etc. bill. And if you want the luxuries like memberships to gyms or food stores you need to pay those too! (Easy right?)

3. You have to buy your own groceries

$14 for steak? That's fine by me!

4. There's no longer a summer break

I love working all year now, especially in 81 degree weather.

5. Making responsible decisions all the time

Every day is spent making decisions that'll better your future, because who doesn't love choosing putting gas in your car rather then spending $35 on shots at a bar?

6. Paying taxes

Realizing that when you lost your W-2 forms, you were extremely f***ed.

7. Having to work the rest of your life

Oh I don't have a summer? Or spring break? Or winter break? Or off-time ever? That's OK, I wont mind working until I'm 64 and finally get retirement.

8. Skipping work isn't like skipping classes

Don't feel good? Or so tired that your eyes are closing themselves? Doesn't matter cause missing work means missing money and that's not a responsible choice an adult can make!

9. Going to doctors appointments alone

You can't just look at your parents anymore and have them explain what's wrong or what hurts.

10. Repaying student loans

Yeah, that $30,000 you took out to party for four years has to be repaid in increments that will make you cry.

11. Cleaning up after yourself

No one's there to tell you that you need to wash your dishes or do your laundry, but after you eat cereal out of a Tupperware and wear those dirty slacks three days in a row, you know it's time.

11. Yard work is totally awesome and fun

Finally it's the weekend and you have two days to relax. What better way to relax then mowing the lawn and trying to figure out why the hell your sprinkler is broken?

12. You can eat anything you want

Especially fast food, eating anything you want whenever you want it is amazing. Don't worry about that Big Mac you just devoured on your 30-minute lunch break, seven days straight in the gym should take care of it!

(P.S. This is all a joke, adulthood sucks.)

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.
