21 Things I'd Rather Do Than Study

Studying sucks, we can all agree to that one.

21 Things I'd Rather Do Than Study

We are nearing the halfway point of the semester, which means midterm exams are piling up in our planners. The past few weeks, our workload hasn't been too bad, so it's now time to put on our game faces and conquer these last eight weeks of the semester. Get ready to make those exams pay! But let's face it, it's so hard to get motivated for midterms...

Here come the countless hours of lost sleep, gallons of coffee on deck, and the growth of gray hair in my early 20s. Needless to say, I am not looking forward to it, and I am sure you are not either. The stress is overwhelming, but instead of studying, I plan on procrastinating as long as I can, because I am in denial. I am not ready, nor do I have the energy to fully commit to begin studying, so here’s a list of things I would gladly do rather than study, because making this prolongs my time until I actually study.

1. Do my month's worth of laundry

2. Actually cook dinner.

3. Watch all five seasons of "The Secret Life of American Teenager."

4. Assemble a resume.

5. Go to the grocery store.

6. Break both of my legs.

7. Pluck each of my eyelashes out individually.

8. Accidentally like my ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend's Insta picture from 134 weeks ago.

9. Go for a run.

10. Dress like Lizzie McGuire.

11. Rub a cactus all over my body.

12. Style my hair with bacon grease.

13. Remove all of my wisdom teeth with no anesthetic.

14. Pay all of my campus parking tickets.

15. Relive my emo/punk stage from middle school.

16. Knit a sweater for a 500 pound man.

17. Clean a frat house Sunday morning after a massive party.

18. Pay all of my credit card debit off.

19. Listen to "Fireflies" by Owl City on repeat.

20. Never eat pizza ever again.

21. Make a list of things I would rather be doing than studying.

Now that this article is complete, I guess I must face the fact. Reality check... I should probably open a book or something. Although sometimes it is hard to sit down and study, just remember to push through this and make the absolute best of it. In less than four years, you'll be out in the real working world, wishing that your worst problem was doing homework!

Best wishes for an easy midterm week, may the curve ever be in your favor.

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.
