The Average College Week As Told By 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia'

College experiences differ from person to person, depending on personality, school, friends, extracurriculars, etc. But being a college student, no matter the individual, can usually be defined by a busy schedule, loads of schoolwork, worrying about jobs and the future, and of course, setting aside some time for fun.

But for those of you non-college audience members out there who just don't know what it's like, here's a breakdown of a week in the life of your average college student:


Surviving class.

It's Monday. You force yourself out of bed ten minutes before class and question why you thought it would be a good idea to start every week this semester with an 8 am. You sit in class replaying the regretful events of the weekend in your head. You're wondering how you're going to finish that 5-page philosophy paper for Wednesday, get a decent grade on that photography assignment for Thursday, and make your life seem decent for that internship interview tomorrow.

Happy Monday, folks.


Smoke and mirrors, baby.

You took a shower. You brushed your hair. You put on the nicest outfit you own. They don't need to know what you did this past weekend. These Craigslist people are top-notch, and you gotta impress them.

You stepped into that future employer's office. You bullshitted your way through an interview. You thought the excessive thumbs up were an excellent idea. The interviewer only gave you three weird looks throughout the entire course of the interview.

You finished the paper. Heck yes.

"I only stayed up till 2:30." Not a bad day.


Being forced to go outdoors.

You just found out that you have to do the photography assignment outside in nature, which is a shame because you just took a bunch of half-assed pictures in your dorm room and were more than okay with the minimal amount of effort.

You also don't remember the last time you spent more than five minutes outside. That's not necessarily a bad thing, is it?


You failed the paper.

How did the professor grade these so fast? Was your paper even read? Or were you just labeled as a failure from the start? Accurate.

But wait... there's good news.

You got the internship! Take that, thumbs-up haters!

It might be because you're the only one who applied, and this business might not be exactly what it says it is. But who cares?


Getting ready to go out

Time to celebrate the fact that you got through this school week without spontaneously combusting! Yes! Going out with friends! It's gonna be lit!

The end of the night

The "I hate myself."

You'll have a better time tomorrow.


Getting ready to go out

Yes! Going out with friends! It's gonna be lit! Tonight's gonna be completely different than last night and you guys are gonna have a totally different experience!

The end of the night

The "I hate myself."

Nothing was different tonight, except this time you guys got written up.


Looking back on the week

You bombed your philosophy paper, you were forced to go outdoors, you might be working for an illegal organization, and you and your friends got written up.

But honestly, you're ready to do it all again next week.

Wait...doesn't the week start on Sunday and not Monday?... Alright, clean slate!

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.
