7 Signs You And Your Friends Can’t Wait For Spring Break

“Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take ya. Bermuda, Bahamas, come on pretty mama.”

7 Signs You And Your Friends Can’t Wait For Spring Break

Midterms are fast approaching, if not here already, but it seems like spring break will never come. You and your best friends have booked your hotel, bought your plane tickets, now it's time to start getting ready for the best week of the entire year.

1. You have a countdown written on the refrigerator.

The excitement is real and what better way to stay motivated to get through the next two weeks than with a countdown? You are probably fighting about who gets to change “14 Days” to 13.

2. You all have begun to face the “Pizza vs. Salad” battle at every single meal.

For the past six months, most likely to your own demise, you have put little to no thought into what you shove into your face. Like, what even are calories? Well, not anymore people. You are keeping each other in check and lying to each other about how good your spinach salad with low fat dressing tastes.

3. That guy named Gym has become the newest addition to your squad.

Let’s be real, you all hate him more than you hate your 8 a.m. on the Vern, but you let him hang out with you anyway. You want to punch each other in the mouth the second someone says, “Let’s go to the gym.” No matter what, you go and do the elliptical for 45 minutes because the thought of wearing a bikini in two weeks fills you with dread.

4. The balance on your debit card seems to be dropping exponentially.

Say goodbye to Thursday night happy hour; you need that 30 dollars to pay for your snorkeling trip! Although it sucks watching your money fly out of your hand, you are able to stay calm by thinking of the irreplaceable memories you are about to make together.

5. You’re buying a new bathing suit anyway.

Despite your lack of cash, you all know that new bathing suits are an essential to take away for spring break. You are sitting on your beds for hours going through pages and pages of bikinis trying to pick the perfect one. You’re honest with your opinions and save each other from buying that super strappy top that has “bad tan lines” written all over it.

6. You can’t stop looking at pictures of where you will be spending the week.

It is becoming impossible to pay attention in class because all you want to do is go on your resort’s website and look at the smiling faces of people, mid-stride, running down the beach. You are sending these Baywatch-esque pictures to your group message with something like “OMG. This will be us!”

7. Every other sentence that comes out of your mouth is “I am so excited.”

Your other friends are annoyed with all of you for never shutting up about your spring break plans, but you just cannot stop. You are staying up until 3 in the morning on a regular basis talking about all the things you need to see, do, and eat while on vacation. Spring break is only two weeks away for goodness sake; it is about time to be excited! 14 days until you are lying in a hammock drinking as many margaritas as your little hearts desire (or your bodies can handle).

The day will come where you have to wake up at some ungodly hour to catch your flight, and although you’re not morning people, this won’t be a problem at all. All of your plans will come together and start to unfold before your eyes. You will have become those smiling people running down the beach and you will be thanking each other for forcing one another to go to the gym. Out will be the excruciating days of salad eating and in will be the days of endless amounts of tacos, tanning and unforgettable memories with your best friends.

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.
