6 Things College Students Say

"Where's the free pizza?"

6 Things College Students Say

When you're a college student, you probably expect yourself to say a lot of intelligent sounding gibberish that barely makes any sense to you. But there's also a few simple phrases that become quite common to your vocabulary.

1. "I'm broke!"

During college, there's plenty of reasons you'll have no money. Too often, you opted for those cheese fries from that sketchy fast food place instead of using your meal plan. You spend way to much money on your college's t-shirts, making your school spirit significantly outweigh your wallet. And you always seem to forget the hundreds of dollars you have to spend on overpriced textbooks each upcoming semester.

2. "I'm hungry!"

College puts a lot on your plate, both metaphorically and (thankfully) literally. There's plenty of food you can eat on campus, and you do eat it. But for some reason you're still always hungry. College students never stop eating. You, along with many other students flock to those boring meetings no one actually cares about because someone said there would be free pizza. Free food is the way to a college students heart.

3. "I'm busy!"

It's hard to find time for anything in college. With all those boring readings you have to do every night and all those projects you have to work on so you can pass a class will consume your life. You exaggerate, though. Sometimes, you'll spend more time complaining about how busy you are than actually working on finishing those things that made you busy in the first place.

4. "I'm lazy!"

There's times where you find yourself sleeping a little too long, making you lose hours to start that essay that's due at 2 PM. That one episode of that Netflix show you watch to help you "unwind" from a busy school day somehow turns into ten episodes and you really better hurry. But then it's the middle of the night and you told yourself you'd be done hours ago. Yet here you are, halfway asleep and not even close to halfway done with your homework.

5. "I'm tired!"

You love sleep. You take naps between classes, naps after classes, naps during classes. Seriously, it's frightening how much you want to sleep when the sun is still up. But it's not surprising considering all the time you spent watching Netflix last night. You keep telling yourself you'll go to sleep earlier but you never do. The loud neighbors you have in the dorm next to you don't help, either.

6. "I'm dying!"

College will kick your butt. You'll feel like you're dying a lot. When you have to pull those late-nighters, when you have to give that fifteen-minute presentation, when you fail a class. It happens.

Yeah, college has it's ups and downs. But that's all part of the roller coaster it is to getting your degree. It's all part of the amazing journey college will take you through. College is just as fun as it is challenging.

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.
