Don't 'Throw Away Your Shot' At A Fire Graduation Insta Caption And Use One Of These 10 Hamilton Lyrics
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvBYOBTkDRk

As graduation comes sooner than any of us anticipated, it's easy to feel a rush of emotions. Despite the sadness of leaving the place you called home for the past four years and the anxiety of going out into the world to do whatever it is you are meant to do, I think we can all agree on one emotion that is definitely the most predominant: excitement.

We've worked our butts off to get to where we are today. We are finally going to get that piece of paper that opens endless doors for us. I think it's safe to say we're all feeling about as cocky as the founding father on the $10 bill.

Here are 10 lyrics from the Hamilton musical that any college grad should use as an Instagram caption to toot their own horn as loud as good ol' Alexander himself.

1. "There's a million things I haven't done, but just you wait, just you wait."

4. "No one has more resilience or matches my practical tactical brilliance."

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.
