13 Stages Of St. Patricks Day

Luck of the Irish.

13 Stages Of St. Patricks Day

The greatest day of the year rolls around in mid-march. A sea of green fills school campuses and the luck of the Irish is embraced at it's fullest.

1. You look on the calendar and you cannot believe the greatest day of the year is finally here.

2. For once, going to a school of predominately Irish Catholic students is a great thing.

3. Suddenly, your biggest priority becomes finding everything and anything green you own for the occasion.

4. The next priority is gathering all of the alcohol you plan on consuming for the day.

5. There is no hour too early to start quenching your thirst, so drinking as the sun starts to rise is totally acceptable.

6. You hit a mid-day point thoroughly believing you have developed a much better stamina than last year’s so you keep drinking.

7. Early evening rolls around and there's only one thing on your mind: food.

8. Considering it’s St Patrick’s Day, pretending you actually enjoy eating corned beef and cabbage is a must.

9. That wonderful time for your evening nap rolls around as you rest up for the night ahead.

10. You remember telling yourself it's a marathon, not a sprint, then remember not following that rule throughout the whole day.

11. It.s a tiring time, but you blast Drop Kick Murphy’s "Shipping Up to Boston" and begin to rally for the second part of the day.

12. You find the day coming to a close so you power through, soaking up the last few hours of the greatest day of the year.

13. The painful headache and irritation from loud noises.

You waking up to the next morning can be a metaphor for coming to the realization that you have to wait 364 more days until this wonderful day rolls around again.

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.

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.
