5 Things That Will Happen Your Senior Year

It's finally here: senior year. It's hard to believe that you're about to be thrust into adulthood come spring, but it's happening. While you're settling into your apartment and running around to your classes, a lot of feelings are going to flood you. Nostalgia, fear, sadness, excitement; all these emotions are going to hit you, and some harder than others. Here are some events that will happen your first few weeks back on campus.

1. Flashbacks

You're going to have flashbacks to your first move-in, your first day of class, your first college party. The first week back to school as senior is truly surreal. It will feel just like yesterday that you first step foot on your campus, and you will really empathize with the saying "time flies when you're having fun."

2. Sporadic bouts of anxiety

Now you really have to figure out how to tweak your resume, how to get those eloquent letters of recommendation, and you really have to get going on that job hunt. Or, if you are thinking of grad school, you really need to start signing up for the necessary tests and filling out applications. The real world is quickly upon you, and wow do those freshmen have it good.

3. The desire to do everything and anything

Does your college host an event that you've always wanted to go to, but have never had the time or were too lazy to seriously consider it? What about exploring town outside of campus? This is your final year, so make a bucket list with friends right away so that you can fit everything in.

4. You will start to miss your friends, even though they're all around you.

Unfortunately, there is a high chance that you and your college friends will drift once you graduate and get jobs. It's nothing personal, just how life works sometimes. You're not going to have next year to make up for lost time, so whether that be planning girls' nights weekly or becoming study buddies, keep your friends close this year and make as many senior year memories as you can.

5. You're going to become super school spirited.

Your college has hopefully provided you with the best four years ever, and you're going to have an overwhelming sense of pride. If you've never been to a certain sporting event, now is the time to go. Plus, tickets are usually free or have a student discount. It's time to appreciate your home away from home.

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.

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.
