One less thing you have to worry about.

8 Websites That Will Save College Students Time And Sanity

1. Easybib

When you have to cite in MLA, APA, or Chicago citation...this is your lifesaver. You just plug in all the information and it will make sure that it is formatted correctly. One less thing you have to worry about.

2. Rate My Professor

It is time to schedule your classes and the times are great but you aren't sure which professor is best? This is your answer. Most colleges tell you not to rely on this website but I found it to be very accurate and a nice guideline as far as what to expect.

3. Bibme

It is a great citation tool just like Easybib but also has a Plagiarism and Grammar Checker which is even more helpful.

4. Amazon

This is where you get books. Any type: textbooks, novels, binders...I have found the best prices and the delivery time is so nice. Usually, your professors are understanding when it's being shipped, but if not Amazon is very quick so you don't have to stress when you will receive it.

5. Pinterest

I was very surprised how much help and ideas I got from Pinterest. Whether it was for my dorm, an essay, a project, or an activity, I got most of my inspiration from Pinterest. It was great because most of it came from students so they could relate to what resources you might have.

6. Quizlet

A HUGE website where students can make flashcard sets and share them with others. I find the specific set I need for classes nine times out of ten. It saves me so much time and sometimes they include information that I did not have. That being said, if you feel more comfortable making your own...its saves paper and time too.

7. TED Talks

Another website that provides TONS of ideas and information. Most of the time when you think of TED Talks, you think about professors showing them during lectures. However, I have learned that you can get so much information on about anything and it gets to be addicting..kind of like YouTube when you see another video on the sidebar.

8. Grammarly

Last but not least, MY FAVORITE! I have it downloaded on my computer and I always pull it up before I submit a paper. I copy and paste my paper into the Grammarly app and it will show me any misused words, punctuation errors, spelling errors, and more.

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.

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.

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.
