14 Ways To Avoid Your Homework

When college is your whole entire life 24/7.

14 Ways To Avoid Your Homework

College is one of the most difficult things in existence. If you even think about taking over recommended hours I would have to suggest psychiatric attention. Take it from someone taking over hours, you will literally do nothing but homework all of the time for the whole semester. I don't think I have been away from my laptop for longer than three hours at a time in at least three months. There is something seriously wrong with that statement so I have been trying at all costs to get my homework done faster and avoid all other responsibilities. I suggest to all college students to do something other than school work for at least a little while a day and here are some of my favorite options.

1. Eat with someone.

Human interaction may be a social construct but it is very important because without it you will forget how to have civilized conversations. Also, any excuse for Spaghetti is a good thing.

2. Hike

Fresh air and just being in nature kind of helps relieve some of the stress of always staring at a computer screen all day.

3. Read

It sometimes has to be something school related so you can stay caught up but just reading something fun after textbook after textbook you can be reminded how much you love reading.

4. Netflix

Netflix: Every college students one true love.

5. Workout

If it has been a while, it's going to be absolutely terrible but just sweating out some toxins and getting some exercise will make you feel about 400000000X better.

6. Call your parents.

They are nice and love you and sometimes send you money.

7. Call your grandparents.

They are nice and love you and sometimes send you more money.

8. Play a video game.

Mindless brain candy and improving your motor skills? It's a win/win!

9. Do your laundry.

It's not always the most fun but it's something that easily gets forgotten and at least it isn't another research paper.

10. Clean your room.

It isn't really fun either but the sense of accomplishment is enough to make it worth it.

11. Go food shopping.

Macaroni and Beanie Weenies and Ramen Noodles, and fruit and chips and salsa and Oreo's and happiness and joy and food.

12. Sleep.

You can't be worried when you aren't awake!

13. SLEEP.


14. Say it again so they can hear it in the back: SLEEP!

Get out from behind the computer and get out and just do something that's makes you happy guys. Grades are important but they aren't everything.

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.
