4 Little Tips For the High School Seniors

4 Little Tips For the High School Seniors

You only think you're ready to get out of there.

1. Stop complaining about being in high school.

You only get to go through high school once. Stop complaining about the bull crap work that you have do. You're gonna miss it. You're gonna miss the teachers reminding you when things are due. You're gonna miss your parents making you go to class because the one day you don't go to class in college you get bonus or they assign something that you have no idea about.

2. Go to all the events.

Spring semester will bring a ton of senior events. Go to them all. You've probably been told this a million times but it's because it's so true. Just go.

3. Start preparing for college early.

Figure out what you are going to need and start shopping early. There's nothing like shopping at the very last minute and not getting what you want. Don't get everything on the list the college sends you. Find a friend that has lived in the dorms and they should be able to tell you exactly what you need and do not need.

4. Spend time with your family.

Believe me, I was ready to get off to college, away from my family for a little bit. I thought that I knew how to do everything and I would be just fine. Wrong! I call my mom and dad every other day and text them almost daily. If it's not a question about what to do then it's an "I miss you, can I just come home?". Spend Friday nights at home watching movies or playing cards. It'll be well worth it when you look back on all the memories.

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.
