16 Thoughts You Have During The First Few Weeks Of Your Senior Year Of College

Class of 2019, we have made it to our final year of college! We have waited 17 years of school just for this moment. There are many excitements that this year will bring but also loads of stress. Internship? Graduate school? New city? Interviews? SO much is changing within the next 9 months, time to tackle this whole adulting thing. Enjoy every second, the good and the bad, so many "lasts" are ahead.

1. Is it too late to drop out?

I can work at Starbucks for the rest of my life, definitely will be worth it.

2. I've been in school for 15 years, how do people live a non-school life?

So you mean that come May, it won't be normal to get Waffle House at 3 a.m.?

3. Yeah... this assignment can wait. 

It's due at 11:59p.m. tonight but Bachelor is on so this can DEFINITELY wait.

4. This is really my last time to do ______. 

This is my last time to go to football games for free, be able to run on three hours of sleep, and last time sitting in this chair on a chilly September 9th day. Everything suddenly breaks your heart as it can be turned into a "last".

5. Spend hundreds of dollars on textbooks? Nope I'll be fine without them 

Hey random person three rows behind me, want to share that textbook with me? Text me

6. This is my 5th Starbucks drink today, actually 6th. 

My electric bill can wait. My cat can eat mac n cheese with me for dinner. I can walk to work tomorrow, no need to fill my gas tank. Caffeine = a must

7. I am not ready for the real world yet, what does adulting even mean? 

Getting out of bed before noon? Mortgage payment? 9-5 job? Being judged if you don't cook dinner every night? No room for naps? There's no way people survive this chapter of life.

8. This presentation is irrelevant, I need to look up graduation cap ideas.

I MUST have the cutest. My Pinterest board has about 300 to pick from, I need at least a top 60.

9. So I wonder what I want to do with my degree...

Yeah I've had three years of figuring it out, but you never know where this life will take you. Social worker or.... chipotle manager.

10. Grad school? Move to another country? Live in my parents' basement? 

Hmm... what should I choose.......... *hi mom and dad*

11. Maybe I should share my Venmo username for student loan purposes

Student loan purposes... and more Starbucks you know.... to get through the student loan payments alive...

12. Wait so, all of my friends are going to be everywhere besides five minutes away from me? 

How are we going to have dance parties, sleepovers, and weekly mental breakdowns together?

13. What am I going to do with no Christmas & Spring breaks? 

People actually function without four weeks cut out of the year to do nothing but sleep until noon and Netflix binge?

14. Didn't I just move into my dorm last week? 

I wonder if it would be creepy if I showed up to my room and said hi to the freshmen living in it now... the best memories were in that 4x4 box, they better appreciate it.

15.  Maybe if I fail a class, I can come back to campus in the fall.

A totally new definition to being a "fifth year" on campus.

16. I am going to miss this place.

Yes, even you, weekly sobbing sessions.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into.

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.
