15 Daily 'College Things' I Can’t Imagine Doing Without My Girl-Gang

Friends for the win!

15 Daily 'College Things' I Can’t Imagine Doing Without My Girl-Gang
Lauren Feiges

These days, I can't wake up without looking at 9 million texts -- asking me if I want to get breakfast before class, go to the gym, or study together later. In college, things you would do by yourself in high school become shared activities. I can't believe I get to eat meals with all of my closest friends every day, instead of feeding small scraps to my dog while I scroll through my phone, eating whatever meal my mom made that night. In a lot of ways, college is super distracting and stressful. However, the amount of time spent doing things with other people, in a face-to-face and phone-free situation, helps to ease some of the stress. Here are the 15 best things to do with your girl gang on the daily, wherever you go to school!

1. Meals

"When are you going to eat?"

"Like 10 minutes"

"Cool, I'll grab a table."

2. Studying

If you aren't fighting people for a table for your girl gang at the library, then you aren't studying hard enough. Chances are, you aren't having as much fun studying if you're studying by yourself too. Get that emotional support system in!

3. Going out

What good are your memories if you're not with your girls?

4. Shopping

Urban Outfitters can have all of our money at this point.

5. Late night snack runs

Ordering wings and Chinese food in order to get through your mountains of homework on the daily envokes less guilt when you do it with your girls.

6. Watching "The Bachelor"

On Mondays, we huddle around a small dorm TV and shout at Colton.

7. Date party

Yeah, taking boys to date party is fun, but if all else fails, there's always someone in your girl gang who will go at the drop of a hat (but she will definitely have to borrow an outfit from you).

8. Walking to chapter together

What good is paying dues if you have to roll up to sorority chapter alone?

9. Sunday morning feasts

Waking up after a night out and NEEDING to recap with your girls over a power dining hall session is honestly part of the routine at this point.

10. Distracting each other from studying

You know that part I said about studying with your girl gang is the only way to do things? Not the best way to get stuff done. However, I really wouldn't want to have a "study break" with anyone else.

11. Exercising

Get sweaty with sisters!!!

12. Meeting up after class

Sitting in the lounge of your dorm with your friends is the best way to catch up (and pretend to do some homework).

13. Watching Netflix

Were you even watching the Ted Bundy series right if you weren't watching it with your friends?

14. Group chats

My girl gang snap group is Always. Blowing. Up.

15. Exploring your college town

Making new places you've discovered your special thing with your girls is the best feeling ever!

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.

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.
