5 Reasons Why The Week Before Spring Break Is Terrible

The week before spring break is so stressful as a college kid.


The week before spring break is the most stressful as a college kid. It is probably one of the most stressful times besides finals, of course. All the professors, well most of them, cram all the materials into one little test. It is a week that you just want to be done with before it has even started. Remember feeling senioritis....this is 10 times worse.

1. So many tests and assignments

Every professor waits the week before a big break to cram all the material in a huge test. Uh no, thank you, I would rather being thinking about my toes in the sand right now than your seven page study guide.

2. Packing, with no time to do so

I have no time to pack between going to class and studying for tests. I have to wait until last minute to pack all my stuff for spring break. And I have no time at all to do laundry.

3. Online classes don't know spring break

In online classes, they do not stop for spring break. So I have to do class work during vacation. Not to mention, I am going on a cruise, so I have no WiFi access. I have to finish everything before I leave campus.

4. No family time

I have not talked to my family this week between work, tests, and essays. I usually talk to them all the time but this week I have no had ANY time. And being gone for a week does not make me feel any better...

5. Work on top of everything else

I am server so I have to make all my money by being nice to people and I think they can tell that I am stressed out to the max. However, I need the money so I have to forget about family and school for a few hours so I can remember extra dressing on a salad.

I just have to push through this week so I can have a nice, relaxing week in the middle of the ocean with no essays due, all the test done, no WiFi to see my grades, and no more extra salad dressing. Sounds like a great week, just gotta get there first.

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.

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.

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.
