47 Thoughts A Broke College Student Has At The End Of Summer


47 Thoughts A Broke College Student Has At The End Of Summer

It's just about that time, summer is coming to an end. As much as we are loving soaking up the sun and ignoring all responsibilities that have to do with class, I think its safe to say us college students are excited to get back to campus. With that being said, panic mode sets in when we realize how little we have accomplished and how little time we actually have to get such things done.

1. I basically haven't saved any money.

2. How do I have no money I worked all summer?

3. Oh right, I spend all my money on food.

4. Ugh I love food. I am so not ready for this dining hall food again though.

5. REALLY going to miss having home cooked meals.

6. Maybe I could try grocery shopping?

7. Who am I kidding? Not happening.

8. Looks like fast food or take out every night it is.

9. But wait, that's all my money going to food again.

10. Why do I pay *insert meal plan price* for bad food?

11. Why is tuition so high anyway?

12. Like for real. Where does all that money all go?

13. Gosh, college is expensive.

14. I don’t even want to think about student loans.

15. Better pick up those extra hours at work. *sigh*

16. But I haven’t gone to *insert destination* yet.

17. I really wanted to go to *insert other destination* too.

18. Who am I kidding?

19. I can’t get off of work.

20. I should just quit and enjoy the rest of summer.

21. Just kidding!!! I need this job.

22. I’m actually really excited to go back to school though.

23. Nevermind… I just remembered how expensive textbooks are.

24. Why in the world is one textbook *insert outrageous price* anyway?

25. But why am I even taking this class?

26. Oh yeah, for my major requirement.

27. How does *insert class title* relate to *insert major* to begin with?

28.This is too much.

29. Can I just not do this anymore?

30. Do I really need to go to college?

31.Yes, yes I do.

32. Hopefully, I get hired after all of this.




36. SOS!!!

37. Okay just breathe.

38. Breathe.

39. Remember? College is fun!

40. All your friends will be there, that's exciting!

41. We’re all in this together, right?

42. Yes. We’re all going to learn so many new things.

43. Knowledge is power.

44. Power = Money.

45. So all of this is worth it.

46. Now get it together.

47. I got this.

Think of getting ready to get back to campus like an all-nighter you pulled for a last minute project. It really isn't fun but, the end result will be more than worth it. Now get moving!

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.

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.
