Coming home for the holidays from college can be a very weird time. Nothing beats a good home cooked meal and having zero stress of school work. However, all of a sudden your college social life turns into a game of 20-questions with your extended family. Your freedom is dependant on your family plans and your life is now the peak of everybody's interest. As I said, it's a weird time--one that can only be accurately described through a series of quotes from the one and only, Eric Forman.

1. That feeling when you finish your last final and get to go home.

2. When you spend your first night back in your own bed.

3. When you taste a homecooked meal for the first time in way too long.

Giphy

4. When your mom says the WHOLE family is going to be at Christmas.

Giphy

5. When your family asks you how finals went.

Giphy

6. That feeling of your extended family asking you every question possible about life at school.

Giphy

7. The realization that going out to dinner at home means you don't have to pay.

Giphy

8. The second realization that going out to dinner at home means talking about your grades and the angel you are at school.

Giphy

9. When your mom sends you to the grocery store and you see every old teacher, neighbor, and family friend there who are prepared to ask you 100 questions about college.

Giphy

10. When being at home means you finally get to hang out with your hometown best friends... Buuuut your mom sets a curfew.

Giphy

11. But overall, there is nothing like being home from college to be with your closest family and friends.

Happy Holidays to every college student at home; enjoy it while you can.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

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.
