Be happy In The Season Of Life You Are In Right Now

To all college students, especially those at Anderson, the semester is coming to an end, and we are all restless, waiting to get out of here and start our summer plans. I don't know about you, but I am ready for some fun and adventure after all my long nights of reading, homework, and studying. Going to a small school, there isn't much to do in town. Especially with summer around the corner, I am extremely restless, just waiting for an epic adventure. Although I know I am receiving a quality education and working towards my future, I am ready for some fun in the sun! I am ready to travel the world and ready to be independent in an exciting city.

Right now, I am desperate to get out of this town, where there really isn't much going on, unless you create some fun. Don't get me wrong, I love my school and my friends, but I am ready for something more thrilling. I am ready to graduate school and get a job that I love in an exciting city. I am ready to live my life. From what I hear from most college students, you guys are feeling the same way.

One thing that college students struggle with is being happy in the moment and where God has placed them. It is probably why most of us cannot wait to go home on the weekends. We are always quick to jump on the next outing or trip we can take away from college. We take drastic measures, such as missing homework assignments, social events, and even skipping classes. We always complain about professors, assignments, and how much work we have to get done and how much stress it causes us.

But, here's the thing: College is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Once it is over, we will never get these years back, and the reality of getting a job, paying bills, and really living responsibility will bring more stress than what we're feeling now. God has placed us in this moment of our lives for a reason. Of course, that reason is different for each person. So, be grateful and be happy that you are in this moment of your life. Makes friends, go on great adventures, and work your hardest because you will never get this time back. Go and enjoy your wonderful, beautiful 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.

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.
