7 GIFs To Describe Your Last Semester Of College

The end is near for December graduates anyway.


Ah, college, what wonderful memories were made during my time here. I'm in my last semester and these couple of gifs accurately describe how I and many others are probably feeling right about now.

1. You might be in despair that your time is coming to an end. 

You've made so many memories here that you are not prepared for the end. The loans, the job search, and the future. It might be coming way too quick.

2. You try your best to sleep soundly. 

Sleep is a gift that you cannot take for granted in your last semester of college. Between projects, capstone classes, and seminars it will probably the only thing that keeps you emotionally sane.

3. You might drink more than you should. 

Tequila Tuesday? What about Wine Wednesday? You seniors might find yourselves doing a project with a beer in hand, just trying to make it through.

4. You get emotional. 

College is a big part of many people's lives. You make so many friends and memories that last a lifetime. Letting all of that go might be harder for some than others.

You might find yourself crying because of how proud you are of yourself.

5. You are trying your best to stay organized. 


Cleaning your room, doing your homework, whatever you can to feel like you have it together is what you're probably trying to do at this point.

6. You try to stay healthy. 


As appealing as copious amounts of alcohol and pizza sound, you can't survive on those two things during your last semester. Making sure you maintain somewhat of a healthy diet is extremely helpful to your success.

7. Getting way too excited to buy your cap and gown. 

Buying the cap and gown is the final realization that you are graduating. That you are so excited to spend forty dollars so you can be handed a 35,000-60,000 diploma cover. (Yay student debt.) However, I'll be a little more graceful than this.

Looking at you, Mizzou.

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.
