A College Student Reaction To The Last Few Months Of The Year

It's all fun and games until you're freezing taking your finals.

A College Student Reaction To The Last Few Months Of The Year

I don't know where time went, but we suddenly only have 2 months left of the year. As the end of the year approaches, I'm never quite sure how to feel. To help explain what I mean, here are some tv characters.

1. Halloween!

As September draws to a close, everyone starts getting excited for Halloween! October means a whole month of pumpkins, haunted houses, fun costumes and so much more!

2. The first chill to the bone

As much as I love fall for its perfect weather, it seems as though it's a little too short. One day it's nice outside, but the next you feel it; the first drop of temperature that's too cold. The worst part? You know it's only going to go downhill from here, better break out your scarves and boots!

3. When it gets dark early

I don't know about you, but nothing makes me more unmotivated than walking out of class and it being dark. I feel like the whole rest of the day is gone. All I want to do is curl up under a blanket and go to sleep, but it's only 5 p.m.! What gives?


I know that a lot of people get excited for Christmas and tend to skip over it, but Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I just have lots of great family memories of Thanksgiving that I'll never forget. And besides, it gives you a reason to eat double your weight in delicious food without judgment, can't beat that!

5. Snow

When I was younger, I loved snow. It was pretty and fun to play in. Then I got to college and I had to walk to class in it. And by walk to class I mean slip and slide to class.

6. Christmas!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of year. I love making people happy and surprising them with gifts, and Christmas gives me the perfect excuse! It's always great to see the way people's faces light up when you got the perfect thing.

7. Finals.

However, standing between you and all of that holiday cheer are finals. Sleepless nights, stressful days and lots of caffeine. You just have to push through and remind yourself that it'll all be worth it and you'll get a break as soon as it's all over.

8. Leaving

Despite all the holiday cheer, there's a certain sadness to December. If you're anything like me, you live too far away from your college family to see them over break. All you can do is give them their presents, say your goodbyes and hope that the next 5 weeks fly by.

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.

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.
