First-years, you may have more in common with these bachelors and bachelorettes than you realized.

23 Times 'The Bachelor(ette)' Accurately Described First Year

College for a first-year can be tough. You know what else can be tough? Finding love, which is something "The Bachelor" family can attest to. There's something about sobbing men and women shamelessly throwing themselves at one another in the name of love that makes you feel better about your own life. To tide you over until January 4, 2016, when Season 20 of "The Bachelor" premieres, starring Ben Higgins, here are 23 times where these bachelors and bachelorettes accurately described being a first-year in college.

1. When your parents leave you. Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry.

2. But then you realize you have freedom!

3. Seeing your roommate for the first time ... so exciting!

4. You awkwardly try to find things to talk about with your new roommate.

5. But then you find out your roommate has some same weird habit as you.

6. Sooner or later, you find your people.

7. Eventually, you get close enough to ask someone if they want to live together next year.

8. But no one seems to understand you have resting b*tch face.

9. You are excited for unlimited meal swipes in the dining halls, but then realize what they serve in the dining halls.

10. Going to the gym for the first time, you think you look like this.

11. You go to your first class and your brain explodes.

12. Midterms. Which never seem to end. Except once finals start.

13. You take your first test and realize your pre-comm/pre-med/any dreams are dead.

14. You call your parents to inform them you will be dropping out of college.

15. Gotta look good for your first night out.

16. Making sure to stay hydrated at your first pregame.

17. Trying to flirt with a frat brother at the door of a party like:

18. But you finally get into the frat!

19. So of course you have to introduce yourself to people.

20. When you run into your RA on the way back to your room:

21. The next morning you wake up with a splitting headache. Where's the Advil?

22. When your friends show you videos of what you did the night before.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the final gif of the evening.

23. Sundays.

See you on January 4, Bachelor Nation. According to Chris Harrison, it'll be the most dramatic season ever.

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.

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.
