21 Signs You Were (ARE) A Crusader

21 Signs You Were (ARE) A Crusader

To the B, to the I, to the R, to the T, to the H, to the D-A-Y!

1. Green and silver is your color scheme.

Green and silver EVERYTHING.

2. This isn't a flash drive; it's a cigarette lighter.

And you sure knew how to use one by the end of that class.

3. On Wednesdays, we wear pink.

And eat cheeseburgers, but this picture was way easier to find.

4. People think you're referring to your grandmother when you talk about your old Latin teacher.

On the eighth day, God made Mrs. D.

5. You still have nightmares about the locker room.

Bob and weave, just bob and weave.

6. You most likely learned your foreign language in a "trailer."

But they were climate controlled, and you'll fight anyone who makes fun of them.

7. You've eaten at almost every restaurant in Dunmore.

Bucktown Diner? Check. Colarusso's? Check. Calabria's? Check. And the list goes on and on.

8. You still celebrate Mole Day.

Once OR twice a year. And you've got a pin that will make all your friends from other schools think you're crazy, but they're missing out.

9. No matter where you go, almost everyone seems to know the name "Deleo."

Commuter socials, random classes, a job interview...almost everyone in the Greater Scranton Area seems to understand you when you label something a "Deleo test" (He's also the only reason why I'm passing my freshman seminar, so shout out).

10. You still know the Alma Mater like you graduated yesterday.

Or like four months ago, but you get the point.

11. Your teachers were literally the greatest.

"In the beginning ... God liked baseball. Get it? Big-inning?" I think that and PJAS sponsors willing to stay until midnight more or less sums it up.

12. Only at HC did Macbeth duel with a Nerf sword, and you're also a proud member of the literati.

Seriously, we take Shakespeare seriously. And I probably misspelled literati, but I had good intentions.

13. "Holy Cross Dress Down Days"

I don't care if I had to pay $50. No uniform? Yes, please!

14. Mrs. DeMarco was great, but you avoided her office at all costs.

Getting stopped at the fire extinguisher in the science wing was everyone's nightmare. I have so many fond memories of running down the boardwalk as the 8 a.m. church bells rang. Oh, and we had a boardwalk, so go us.

15. Christmas decorating was taken seriously.

I still can't believe how it came together every year. Or that they actually trusted us with ladders.

16. Our athletics department was better than theirs.

Cross country, basketball, track, tennis, baseball, softball, swim, it didn't matter: Holy Cross was the best. And our football team? Our football team...well, we had a football team.

17. Demerits


18. Our language department was second to "nun."

Sister Denise had the greatest collection of movies, and who can forget Sister Eileen's boxing nun doll?

19. You know there are four versions of "Happy Birthday" and can sing every single one of them.

The Holy Spirit's version with no words was by far the best.

20. "There's a pool on the roof."

One in 10 fell for it. For, like, a second.

21. You'd go back in a heartbeat.

Your high school years were some of your fondest memories and you'd go back in a second. Holy Cross has helped make me into the person I am today, and I wouldn't trade the experience for anything.

Education System in India

Current Education System in India

Education as it's said is the key foundation of a child's future. Education system in India lays down a exceptional foundation of a child's education so very excellently by focusing on not just one but giving commensurate importance to all subjects even in the early stages of schooling.

With new technologies coming up like every single day, system of education in India and worldwide is changing rapidly. With the introduction of digital teaching appliances, classrooms are now being turned into smart-classes.

Impact of internet has totally changed the idiosyncrasy and praxis of education in India as well as all over the world. Students too proffer online education rather than waking up early every morning to go to school.

With the investiture of over thousands of new international private schools, it is also a great step towards opening a new path to outer world for Indian students to compete on an international platform. Not only this facility motivates them but also gives them the opportunity and confidence to represent themselves on an international platform.

Education is now seen as a better way of investing money. The cost of education, be it in a government or a private school has increased a lot and is likely to increase much more in coming years. But none can ignore the fact that "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest".

The 'Annual Education Budget' of the government has increased a lot over the years. Government has allocated Rs 85,010 crore as the Education Budget for the year 2018-19 starting from 1 April.

Though 'Education System in India' is prone to many ups and downs but still our country has produced some brilliant gems to be admired by the world.

An Argument For Relaxation

Please, take a break!

Hey, you! Yes, you! Reading this article right now! I'm guessing that you're procrastinating for some reason right now –– I can relate.

After all, I am procrastinating studying for a test by writing this article. We're all in the same boat, and that's why I feel like I can share something with you. Nothing too deep, nothing too dramatic, just a truth that I discovered recently that I think might help you out. Ready for it?

Ok, here it goes: you can take a break.

That seems obvious at first glance: "Of course I can take a break!" you say. "Why, I take a break every half hour or so to check Instagram!" And I support those kinds of breaks, the mindless ones where you don't need to think as hard. However, the kind of break I'm talking about is the one that takes up more than five minutes. Instead, I want you to find time to take break that is far more substantial, one where you can spend time with friends or nap or read or go for a run or just do something that feels good to you, even if you haven't finished up all of your homework yet.

This sort of break takes a good sense of balancing, of course: you can't just ignore all your work while relaxing. Instead, try to find a good time to set down your calculus equations and history essays so you can recharge and refocus before finally finishing everything up. This sort of practice might take some time to figure out fully, but I promise you, when you finally are able to balance work and play, you'll feel like your life is far more fun (and focused!) than it was before you could both study and spend time with those you love.

This article isn't meant to provide step by step instructions, because taking breaks is a personal experience: instead, try to find your own system, and be sure to keep up the practice until you can finally say that you've mastered the art of the study break.
