Back To College As Told By 'New Girl'

They understand it better than you understand yourself.

Back To College As Told By 'New Girl'

Coming back after a year or two of college is just as exciting as your freshman year. No one understands this excitement better than Nick, Jess, Schmidt and Winny the Bish.

1. Meeting your new roommates.

2. Remembering you have $7 and can only afford to eat Ramen.

3. Begging friends for their notes and textbooks.

4. Scoping out the new freshman.

But also..

5. Trying to make friends with strangers in class.

6. When all your friends start to work out, but you're not about that.

7. Seeing all the couples, that you definitely missed, walking to class, holding hands, hugging, etc.

8. Wearing all your new clothes before you resort back to sweatpants and leggings.

9. Netflix consumes a significant majority of your day.

10. When your professor uses the entire class period for syllabus day.

11. When your professor skips syllabus day completely and jumps right into the material.

12. Trying to remember how to do homework.

13. You handled the freshman 15, but now you face the sophomore 20, junior 25, and senior 30.

14. People ask about your summer and you recount wonderful tales from work.

15. Having so many "I haven't seen you in so long!" conversations with people you wished to avoid.

But despite all of the bad things, you're just excited to be back at college with all of your friends again. Make it a great year!

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.

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.
