College Friends According To The Big Bang Theory

My freshman friend experience

College Friends According To The Big Bang Theory

In Fall 2015 I took a major life step: I began my college journey. Education has always meant a lot to me, but at the same time, so does keeping a connection with my friends and family. These certain people made those longs days at school exciting and those hectic busy weeks where I worked two jobs and tried to maintain good grades bearable.

I was super worried about what and who my college experience would bring me. Would I get good grades? Will I make life long friends? Will people even like me? I mean, I am pretty weird... what if there are no other people who like what I like?

Well, let me tell you all something. My first year of college has come and gone and I have meet so many awesome and like-minded people and made so many great friends that I don't even know why I was worried. I thought I could show what my first year of college friend-making experience was all about so that you, reader, can compare your stories or maybe prepare you for your new college friend making experiences.

And what better way to explain friendships and roommate college life other than the hilarious T.V. show The Big Bang Theory.

"I'm Batman!!"

Just because we are considered adults now doesn't mean that we can't act childish. And honestly nobody judges you because they all (either secretly or not) acted the same way at some point in their college career.

Come at me bro!

You want to make fun of us for wearing princess dress or sweat pants everyday? Go ahead and try. We don't care what anyone thinks. We are cool in our own friend group and that's all that matters!

We do weird-nerdy things

We weren't afraid to try new things or just be plain weird. We did Nerf gun wars, talked extensively about Harry Potter, created a Quidditch club, and so much more.

Let's eat... I'm hungry y'all

You know the one: they eat everything and anything. They're the ones who over do their meal plan and run out of swipes because they are constantly getting or eating. There a knock on the door late at night? It's them asking for food, but you give it to them anyway because that's what friends are for. And you can always use it as an excuse to get something out of them later.

Sarcasm + Friends = A Dangerous Game

Prepare yourself for the roast. Anything you do is fair game!

Should we be partying?

We compared our lives to a lot of other college going students. Were we as cool as them? Were we cool when we nerded about Harry Potter and Mockingjay and then argued about hockey? Probably not. But did we really care? Nope.

"Do you ever leave?"

They knock, they come in, and then they never leave your room. Ever. (But honestly, I enjoyed their company anyway.)

Honesty is key

College is a time when you can start all over and begin a new life. No one knows who you are and you can chose who you want to hang out with. If you just met Joe Shmoe and you really don't like him, you don't have to! This is what leads people, and your new friends, to not be afraid and speak their minds. If you can tolerate them and they can tolerate you, then new buddies you become!

Homework: We had a paper due today?

You have five papers due, four extensive readings that need to be done, and three exams to take all within one week. You are absolutely freaking out and then one of your friends mentions that they have no homework and your other friend is going on about their one paper due in two weeks. That's cool guys. That's cool.

These are just a few memories and experiences that I had making friends in my first year of college and there are just so many more I wish I could actually share. I learned to be myself and my new friends really helped me achieve this.

I hope this brought back some memories of your own or helped ease your mind about going to college and starting a new part in your life.

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.

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.
