13 Things Students Think About During Their First Month Of School

It's only the first month, and we're already tired.

13 Things Students Think About During Their First Month Of School

By now everyone is back in school, and settling back into their fall routine. Most students have experienced at least a week of school already, and we all know how the beginning of school goes.

1. "I'm going to do so well this year!"

Every school year begins with high expectations and hopes for the best.

2. "I will not procrastinate."

it is still early in the year and the work load isn't that much. Perfect time to start out with a good work ethic... right after on last episode.

3. "Why does time move in slow motion..."

I checked the time at 1:30 p.m., and 10 minutes later I checked it again, and it was 1:31 p.m. Each class feels like at least 5 hours long, each school day like 10 hours long (not including clubs) and the week goes on for the duration of a month.

4. "I will have good relationships with my teachers."

I will participate in class, turn in all work on time and maybe even have casual conversations with them.

5. "How does the teacher hate me already?"

It's only the first week and the teacher is already looking at me like I didn't turn in my homework! If I act extra good I can turn it around... or just live with it.

6. "Does sleep even exist?"

I lay in bed each night, blink and get up for school.

7. "How can people be this dumb?"

8. "How did everyone get so smart?"

School is the only place where you know everyone is losing their self confidence, yet you're still insecure. Everyone seems better at everything!

9. "This class is actually easy."

For once you are finally understanding (and even exceeding) everything that is happening in class.

10. This class is impossible!"

It's the first month of school, and I already don't know what's going on!


12. "Do weekends even exist?"

Weekends only seem to be an hour long, and there's only time enough to acknowledge there was a weekend. The weekdays must have stolen their time from the weekend.

13. "At least I have my friends."

How would anyone survive school without someone who complains about the same things as you?

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
