11 Reasons Being A College Student Is Oddly Similar To Being A Toddler

It is not as easy as A. B. C.

I have never really felt like an adult, even after becoming one legally. Sometimes, I feel like I relate much more to your average 3-year-old than your average adult.

1. Poor Sleep Schedules

Your sleep schedule never seems to make sense anymore, because who knew that 2 PM in the afternoon was the best time to fit in your 8 hours of recommended sleep.

2. You stare blankly at objects

Even after staring at this algebra problem for the past 20 minutes, it still doesn't make any sense.

3. You can take a nap anywhere

As soon as your body sits somewhere long enough, you are destined to be out of commission for the next few hours.

4. You'll pretty much eat whatever you can find

Piece of bread with some hot sauce on it because money is tight? At least there some calories.

5. Depending on your night, walking can be difficult

Not everyone has these kinds of nights, but we all know someone who has.

6. Happy dances

When somethings good happens, you just unconsciously dance.

7. Your mom is super important

You rely on your mom more than ever. Who else can you ask how to clean a microwave.

8. You seem to fail a lot, but try to keep going

Being a toddler includes a lot of trial and error. It seems to have traveled to me as a college student as well.

9. Waiting to grow up

I wanted to be a grown-up so much even when I was 2/3. I am still waiting.

10. You cry, sometimes a lot

Like a whole lot.

11. But the littlest things make you happy

Even when you are down in the dumps, the little things in life still make you smile.

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.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
