The First Week Of Second Semester As Told By Parks And Rec

There has never been a sadness that can't be cured by breakfast food.

The First Week Of Second Semester As Told By Parks And Rec

After a few weeks off from school it can be hard to get back into the swing of things. Getting yourself to the airport, dreading the return to classes, but excited to see your friends is enough of a struggle.

But there is also the looming fact that you only have a few days to mentally prepare yourself for another semester of classes. Luckily, you have done this once already in the past year and treating the beginning of this semester as if it were just the same as the last will make life that much easier.


When you go to pack your suitcase before heading back to school you always have ten times the amount of stuff you came home with. Now, you are stuck either having to compromise or bring an extra bag back to school.

Ordering New Books

New semester, new books, new tears. It seems like the textbook retailers are out to get you, even when you are as frugal as possible.

Mentally Preparing Yourself For The Semester

You tell yourself you will work your hardest. You claim you will do all the readings. You promise to pay attention in class. It doesn’t last. It never does.

Needing Additional Emotional Support

You just need someone to tell you that you can do it, you can make it through the first day.

One Day Of Classes In

You are already falling apart. Last semester was much easier to get in the swing of things. You are not yet ready to do school.

Finally Reaching The End Of The Week

You made it through the first week somewhat alive. You are back in the swing of things, but just need to reward yourself with a good brunch and good friends. It will be okay.

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.

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.
