20 Thoughts Fast Walkers Have When Stuck Behind Slow Walkers

During my summer away from college, I forgot how much walking I do between going to my dorm, to class, to Starbucks to the library, so needless to say, I do a lot of walking in a day. As a self-proclaimed fast walker (and a girl who gets told to slow down by various friends), it's one of my biggest pet peeves to be behind a slow walker. Seriously, I just don't understand how people walk so slowly, and how I manage to get stuck behind these snails at least 3 times a day (and usually when I'm running late, just my luck). So here are 20 thoughts I have when I get stuck behind a slow walker.

1. Oh my god PLEASE walk faster. PLEASE.

2. Can you REALLY not move your legs any faster?

3. I don't think you could walk any slower if you tried to.

4. I have places to go, eye contact to avoid, people to not talk to. Don't want to miss out on any of that.

5. Come on, come on. Hey now! Hey! Look alive.

6. :(

7. Are your legs made of lead or something? Is that why your feet are shuffling so much?

8. I've seen a snail move faster. A snail. I'm not even kidding here. A snail.

9. Have you no sense of urgency?

10. Alright I can't take this anymore.

11. *Goes in for the pass.*

12. JK someone's coming in the other way on the sidewalk.

13. Ugh I'm never going to pass you. We will have a new president before I get to class, and it's all thanks to you.

14. Ok, Ok here we go. I'm finally gonna pass this turtle.

15. Oh NOW you decide to move over on the sidewalk? Are you TRYING to make me more annoyed?

16. I don't care anymore, I'm passing you, and if I body-check you in the process, so be it.

17. Oh good, you moved over to let me pass (FINALLY). Body-check not necessary.

18. YAS I can walk at my own pace now #blessed.

19. Open sidewalk, nothing can stop me now.

20. Dear god, no. Not another.

And then the process starts all over again until I get to class, the library, or wherever I'm going (probably Starbucks). Let's just hope that I won't be too late, and tomorrow is a more promising day, filled with walkers who are slightly less sloth-like.

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.
