1. Unpack and clean your room

There's nothing worse than unpacking from a month long break at home. You may have left your room nice and neat, but after coming back to school and unpacking for five minutes it definitely isn’t clean anymore. And although no one wants to unpack, nothing feels better than finally completing the task. Getting unpacking over with and cleaning your room takes a lot of your load and can help make the transition from doing nothing to doing a lot again much easier.

2. Restock your necessities

Many times coming back from break you realize you're out of everything you need; shampoo, face wash, food and so much more you didn't leave for yourself. Going to Walgreens and restocking with all of your favorites can help make the week back easier

3. Buy all your books ahead of time

During the first week back the bookstore can be extremely hectic. Everyone is buying their books, especially last minute. The worst thing is finding out there's no more of the book you need left, so don't forget to do this ahead of time. Whether you buy or rent from amazon or the bookstore, make sure you get it done as soon as you get back!

4. Plan everything out once you get your syllabus

Once you get your syllabus planning out your homework and midterms can help take some stress off and make you feel more prepared for classes again. Now that you know when your tests are and when your reading needs to be done by, you can relax and feel better about getting back to school.

5. Figure out your schedule

New semester means new schedule. By the time first semester ends, you've just gotten down a routine that you're used to. Now with a new schedule, this means a new routine. Figure out your schedule and when you have breaks, when you can workout, eat and go to the libary to get your work done and hopefully have some free time.

6. Catch up with friends

After being away from your friends for a month or so, it is so nice to finally see them again. However, with classes starting up again it can be hard to find time to catch up, especially with everyone trying to get back into the routine of school. Go out to a nice dinner with friends and catch up before the week starts! There's nothing better than seeing your best friends after a month long home away from them.

7. Enjoy sylly week

The best part about being back is by far syllabus week . Classes are the easiest with the lightest work load they will ever be. You can go out, have fun with your friends and enjoy the first week back before all the work hits again!

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.

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.

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.

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.
