The Bond Between You & Your College Friend Group Will Last A Lifetime

You will always have someone to go to after college.

The Bond Between You & Your College Friend Group Will Last A Lifetime

In elementary school, you have the friends who did the little things with you, like go on the swing set with you at the playground during recess, or play in the sandbox, and then sometimes not hang out with you the next day. In middle school, it’s the same thing, but your best friend becomes the person who gave you the best piece of gum you’ve ever had. In high school, your best friend might stand up for you in a tough situation, and leaves the friend group at the end of senior year, since. But in college, the bond between you and your friends is even closer and will last a lifetime.

Freshman year is the year where the friend group begins to form. You either meet at parties, school clubs, sports teams, or even through other friends and you stay with that same group all through your four years. You may make some new friends and add those friends to that group of people, but usually keep the original 3-4 people in the friend group that never left.

Of course you make new friends and want to explore new things in college, but the friend group you made freshman-sophomore year in college, stays by your side through everything. Not only are they always there for you, but you always find a way to have a good time too. It’s important to have that someone or group of people that will stick with you through your college years, because that way, you will stick together through it all.

After high school, you sometimes travel for school, and end up not being as close to the friends from school that you’ve grown up with all your life because you wanted a change, but in college, you’ll find that one group of friends that are not afraid to be themselves around you, and not afraid to do some of the things you wanted to do.

Even if you travel after college, your college friends will always stick around. I mean, you’ve basically lived with them all four years, it’s kind of hard to just leave the friends that have lived with you for that long. They will always be there. Even if they are a phone call away. They will never forget about you. Or leave your side. Part of them will always remember you.

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.
