All the Struggles of College Students, as told by SpongeBob

Even though we're in college now, our favorite sponge's life is still so real for us


College is a true rite of passage for us, because we finally get to live away from home and sort out the puzzle to our careers. And through it all, one long-running cartoon character has been around for us to watch and relate to, even though we're double the age of the show's primary demographic. Guess who that is? It's the one and only anemone who lives in a pineapple under the sea: SpongeBob SquarePants! Now, while all of us easily relate to SpongeBob, some of us relate more to Squidward, because he could care less about anything in college life, while others can relate more to Patrick, because he may not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he's your best friend for life. With that said, this is how much SpongeBob and company can relate to our struggles in college:

When you go through Freshman Orientation

When you first arrive at your dorm

Getting all your syllabuses this semester

Doing a group project

Writing a 10-page essay

When the RA comes by to check on you while you're asleep

When you have an 8:00 AM class

When the teacher calls on you in class

Looking for the right internship or the right job

When you don't have money to do laundry

Getting called to the Student Affairs office

Resisting the urge to gain the Freshman 15

When your roommate eats your food, while you're away

Taking care of your dorm room

Studying for hours in the library

Writing notes by hand in class

Studying for midterm exams

When you forget your room key

Registering for classes next semester

When your friends party, but you gotta work

Studying for final exams

Tuition and all the other bills

Going home and leaving your friends

When the weekend's here

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.
