4 Types of People You See Around the LSU Lakes

While walking the lakes, you're in for a treat every time because you never know who or what shenanigans you'll see.

4 Types of People You See Around the LSU Lakes

The LSU Lakes are one of the most scenic and enjoyable locations on LSU's property. They sit near the edge of campus and form over a 4-mile route around them. As you could imagine, people of all ages use this as a free workout or a time to casually exercise with some friends. 

Either way, you're in for a treat every time because you never know who or what shenanigans you'll see.

1. The triathlete who makes you feel worthless.

While you're huffing and puffing after a measly half-mile, you'll pass a buff 7-foot tall dude who is definitely on his 8th mile and not stopping any time soon. You try not to make eye contact, but damn, his physique is just so intriguing. Plus, he's way too in the zone to notice the struggling sorority girl limping her way around the lake for the second time this month.

2. The power-walking grandmas with their mp3 players.

Even the older women you see tend to make you feel even worse than the athletes because of their "go-getter" attitude even at their old age. You hope that you're as active as they are but sadly realize you probably won't. 

3. Sorority girls traveling in packs.

Since sorority girls can't go anywhere by themselves, seeing groups of them almost getting hit by cars is almost an inevitable sight. Many parts of the route consists of being on a narrow sidewalk and these girls don't know how to walk in a straight line. Also, stay tuned for several snap chats. 

(Side note: Never walk the lakes alone, especially at night!)

4. Cute families flaunting their happiness. 

This one is the worst because as your life is in shambles and 8 hours of homework awaits you, this family seems to mock you with their togetherness. At least you don't have a baby waiting at home for you... but a decent, good-looking guy would be nice.

If you're trying to distract your mind from the immense pain that is happening inside you, be on the lookout for these characters and maybe you'll feel a little bit better. Or not.

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.
