Apartment hunting is hard... and it only gets easier when you don't have to do it anymore. But honestly, it's a necessary evil for some of us.

1. When you call apartment complexes and they don't answer...

Giphy

It's fine. It's not like it's 2 p.m. and you say you're open until 6 p.m. I'll just leave. Thanks anyways.

2. When you finally get through to someone, and they're helpful!

Giphy

You wanna come see the place? Yes! Here is: our fee, what we have available, price range, and parking arrangements!

3. When you go on a walk through and it's nothing like it is online...

Giphy

I have been lied to, and I don't like being lied to!

4. When you're trying to leave the complex and ask a resident for help...

Giphy

Thanks.... guess we can cross "friendly neighbors" off the list of perks.

5. Trying to make polite small talk with the apartment guides...

Giphy

Yeah... I have no idea what to say to you. You're our last choice right now.... but I'll be in touch!

6. When you finally turn in an application to a not completely horrible place!

Giphy

It's basically a victory!

7. When you really like an apartment, but they don't like you...

Giphy

It's... fine. Everything's fine. Not really, but it's fine.

8. When the apartment complex people high key judge you...

Giphy

I'm not one of you... I know... I just need a place to sing into my hairbrush and walk around in sweatpants. Please stop judging me.

9. When your parents ask where you're moving to, and you don't know... Still.

Giphy

I promise I'll let you know a month before we move... probably.

10. When the guide shows you a two bedroom apartment...

Giphy

Really, they just want to have more of your money... but ya know... It's fine.

Apartment hunting is hard work... but sometimes it's nice to sit back and laugh at yourself and all the struggles you've gone through. And what better way to do that than with John Mulaney? He gets it... Probably.

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.

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.

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.
