A Eulogy To My Spring Break Body

Gone but never forgotten.

A Eulogy To My Spring Break Body
College Candy

My Spring Break Body, also known as MSBB, was a happy, healthy, well-loved part of my life. In the short time we had together, I knew that I loved her and that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. Please take a moment to join in a recounting and celebration of her young, beautiful life that was ended much too soon.

MSBB was born on Jan. 1, 2016, following my desperate decision to make a New Year’s resolution. Born at way too many pounds and just as many ounces, she was a heavy baby, but as her mother, I knew how wonderful she would become.

As a child, she was kind of a pain in the ass. She was a wild spirit, never doing as she was told, eating snacks out of the pantry late at night and refusing to wake up to her alarm to go on runs. However, our beloved MSSB slowly began to turn into the MSBB we all came to know and love.

She was a light to all of those around her, showing others that there really was such a thing as miracles. She worked hard and was an example of strength, perseverance and beauty. Everyone who met her loved her and she never failed to bring a smile to their face.

Tragedy struck last week, bringing the untimely end to MSSB and many others like her. In the mass murder by the psychotic killer, Finals Week, her life came to a slow, tragic end. Due to final's week’s use of excessive stress eating, MSSB quickly succumbed to the rage of Finals Week.

Though we mourn the loss of our dear friend, the week before her shining moment, we look back with the fondest memories at our time together. A memorial service will be held the Friday of spring break at 10:00 p.m. BYOB.

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.

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.
