7 Things I Dislike About College As Told By Pooh Bear

Overall, college has been a pretty good experience. There have been good moments and bad moments, these are just things that are unavoidable because you’re in a new place. It’s part of the experience.

Dining hall food.

First of all, the food here at SPU is great! Don’t get me wrong. But there is something about a home cooked meal made by your dad or mom that cannot be served in a dining hall.

Perpetual stress.

Whether it’s stress over an exam, registration or the amount of homework you have, you always have something to stress about. And if you are not stressing over the above, then you have stressing over your future job, life, and situation.

The struggle between wanting to look nice and not really caring in the first place.

Sweatshirts/sweatpants/jeans and converse are my aesthetic. But sometimes I will get the urge to not look like a total slob, however, it's motivating myself to put together a decent outfit that is a struggle in the first place.

Always hungry.

Because I sometimes stay up late to work on homework, I end up getting hungry. I mean, it’s around twelve or one in the morning and my stomach is making those whale mating noises. If you ever wonder about the causes of the “freshmen 15,” late night studying is definitely one of them.

Missing family.

I’ve loved meeting all the girls on my floor and different people in my classes. But it’s only natural to miss the people you’ve lived with for the first 17 to 18 years of your life.

So many activities, so little time.

I guess this is also something that I really like about college because there are so many fun things you get to go out and do with the friends you’ve made. But yes. It is a struggle and there is something called studying that exists.

Those moments of pure panic when you sleep in past your alarm.

Most of us have had that moment where you wake up feeling discombobulated because the lighting is off for whatever day it is. And then it hits you. You slept in. And then you freak out wondering what time it is and you realize you’ve slept through your nine o’clock class. The class that counts attendance as part of the grade. The horror.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
