How It Feels At The End Of Every Semester

It's a crazy sprint to the finish line.

How It Feels At The End Of Every Semester

Here we are again: Easter break is over and there are only a few weeks left in the semester. After the short weekend, the hailstorm of projects, papers and tests will come raining down, and they won't stop until mid-May.

1. You get back from Easter break and everything seems okay for a full four seconds.

2. Then you take a look at your calendar and realize how much work is coming up in the next week, alone.

3. You sit down and make a neat and detailed list of everything that you need to do until the end of the semester ... and you get so caught up making that list that you don't end up doing any actual work.

4. Alright, fine; quick Netflix break. You deserve it. Maybe.

5. Six episodes later, you sit down to write your essay and the prompt is so uninteresting that you just take a nap.

6. You wake up re-energized and ready to get to work, but your mind is so all over the place that you can't decide where to start.

7. You pick an assignment and sit down and get it done.

8. Yes! Write that paper! Do that take-home test! Complete those professor evaluations!

9. Oh no ... you didn't forget that you have to pack, did you?

10. You didn't forget that you have to SLEEP, did you???

11. You take a three-hour nap and wake up just in time for that 8 a.m. final.

12. You write furiously for a full hour and dump everything out of your brain and onto the paper.

13. Victory! You've turned it in! You're done! Go home and enjoy your summer!

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
