Freshman Year, As Told By The Cast Of 'The Office'

Dunder Mifflin is more relatable than you think

Freshman Year, As Told By The Cast Of 'The Office'

Realizing you are actually all alone after your parents drop you off for the first time

Getting over your parents leaving you and realizing you have the most freedom you've had in your entire life

When your professor lets you out of your three hour class two hours early

Realizing that the money you had saved from your summer job is not lasting you as long as you thought it would

When you get placed in a group project with people who aren't willing to contribute anything

When your professors seem to conspire against you and you have a project or an exam in every class on the same day

When you do well on an exam you thought you were going to fail

The minute you're out of class for the weekend

Seeing your college friends again for the first time after Christmas break

Coming home after completing one semester of college

Finals week.

When your professor gives you a pop quiz that you didn't do the reading for

When the fire alarm starts going off in your dorm at 2 AM

When you actually get everything done before midnight, and you'll get more than four hours of sleep

Studying for finals

Going home for the summer, and realizing how much you're going to miss being at school

Finally being able to relax again after busting your butt for a whole year

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
