7 Reasons College Friends Are The Best Friends

College friends are the type of people to stay in your life forever, through thick and thin.

As the spring semester comes to a close, I often find myself thinking about how thankful I am for the friends I have made during my first year of college. My friends are the reason I love my time at FSU so much. They are my biggest supporters and I can confide in them with anything. My life would not be the same without them, and even though they could never replace my friends from back home, I love and appreciate them just as much. Your college friends will be there for you through thick and thin, so take time to thank them.

Here are seven reasons why your college friends are the best friends to have.

1. They support you.

My friends in college are my biggest supporters. They are the first to tell me how good I look on a night out and the first to congratulate me on big achievements. College is a monumental time, and as we all have new experiences for the first time, having an amazing group of friends cheering you on makes it even greater.

2. They always make sure you're okay.

Whether you're feeling down about failing your calc test, or you're about to make a really stupid decision, college friends will be there for you. Chances are your friend group in college is smaller than it was in high school, and this means you guys are especially close. College friends are true friends who always take the time to make sure you are safe and happy.

3. You make the best memories together.

Going to a big school like FSU, I quickly learned that there are so many things to experience. Going for a weekend beach trip, joining a school organization together, or even falling down the stairs at a party all become great memories when you are with your friends. Being able to look back at all the crazy and wonderful things you have done together is one of my favorite parts of friendship.

4. You can be yourself around them. 

At a big state school, the chances that you see the same people every day are pretty slim. Because of this, making a fool out of yourself or stepping out of your comfort zone to do something a little crazy isn't as scary as it was in high school. When you are with your college friends, you can finally let lose and be the crazy, stupid version of yourself that you have been hiding for so long. There is no judgment in college and this makes it all the better.

5. They pick you up when you're down. 

While my friends at college have seen me at my best, they have also seen me at my worst. No matter what it is I need them for, they are always there. They are the first to sacrifice their own priorities in order to pick me up and care for me and that's the epitome of true friendship.

6. You can tell them anything. 

College is the time to experience new things and try things you never would before. Having a group of close friends that you can share any of your experiences with is an amazing part of college. As soon as anything crazy or wild happens to me or one of my friends, the group-chat is sure to blow up. We don't hide anything from each other and I always love the stories my friends tell me.

7. Your time together is precious. 

College only lasts a few short years, and since you might not see your college friends every day, this goes by so fast. Busy schedules often mean making time for each other is harder than it was in high school, but this also means that the time you do have together is so much more valuable. Even though you may argue and bicker, the time you spend with your friends at college will be some of the best moments of your 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.

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.
