Teaching is not as easy as it seems, and even those who are in college for education know they have a big road ahead of them. With the help of Pinterest, I found some memes that perfectly describe teaching.

1. To Those Future Teachers

Don't worry, teaching is the right path despite all the set backs coming your way!

2. Teaching In General

After you are a skilled teacher, you learn better techniques and methods...or you become more tolerant of your students.

3. The Class Outline

Despite popular belief, students this is very important and not just a bunch of crap.

4. Life Of A Teacher

We are masters at multi-tasking regular multi-tasking. Confusing? Just imagine actually living through that.

5. Students Who Procrastinate

Procrastination may seem like a good idea, but it hurts everyone. Especially the teacher and your grade.

6. Dealing With A Disruptive Classroom

Good luck to those teachers with those disruptive classrooms! I'll keep you in my thoughts.

7. Grading That Hasn't Been Done yet

Procrastinating happens for teachers too; it can be dangerous and can pile up quickly. "Wait, grades are due when?"

8. The Debate On Whether Or Not To Call In

This is also the point where you wish you had pre-made sub plans, but no, you had to hit next episode on Netflix instead.

9. Broken Copy Machines

Copiers are probably the most desired item in schools for teachers, and nine times out of 10, they are broken. Like, get it together machines, we have work to do.

10. Thoughts On State Mandates/Requirements

Oh, yes, Mr. State Official, please tell me how you know these new requirements and vast curriculum changes will change the educational system. Wait, you have no experience in a classroom? Hmm...

11. Allowing Kids To Hand In Late Work

I gave you one chance, and you decided to take it for granted. So, don't blame the teacher when your grade suffers.

12. Open Note Tests

The notes taken in class are to study from for the tests, not to totally disregard them and ignore them until test day.

13. Advocating Studying

Studying will help! You will need it in college and high school! Get used to the real world, honey.

14. PDA

You are not on the Titanic; you don't have to make out like it's your last moments on earth. Unless I see video camera filming a romantic-comedy, you should not be on top of each other in the hallway.

15. Lesson Plans Outside Of School

Hmm...why waste a beautiful weekend making lesson plans and not get paid for it? Yeah, I'm going to avoid all my responsibilities by online shopping and binge watching "New Girl."

16. Professional Development

The words "Professional Development" will haunt you to the end of your career, especially if you had to contribute involuntarily.

17. State Testing

New York state, where you at? Common Core, Regents exams, State Assessments and anything else the state tries to throw at you will three days notice.

18. Forgetting Writing Utensils

There are literally pencils and pens everywhere. While you were busy sucking your significant other's face like it was the end of time, you could have been asking them to borrow a pen.

19. Students Actually Using What You Taught Them

Despite the humor behind this article, student achievement is the best gift a teacher could get. Well, besides summer vacation.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
