It's Time To Get Up

Wake up freshman, this is only the beginning.

It's Time To Get Up
Her Campus

Everything is still calm and even the sky isn't fully awake yet

Your mind tells you it is time to get up and move on

But then your body argues and begins to fret

To stay in bed and sleep all day or to get up and do something

The question that is asked every morning and usually the answer is always the same

But eventually you get up, mostly to silence the horrible sound of ringing

Moving forward the caffeine your body shouts for is so close but so far

Fingers are itching to raise the bar one more time on the music

Once again the late night before is to blame

Yet all of the work needed to be done, but it still isn't

One more cup of caffeine as the body fights the urge to sleep

The mind is racing and awake from the new knowledge

Before the day has started the mind is clear and refreshed

Before anyone can say anything that sounds cheap

Just remember why you came to college

The lack of sleep and the new love of caffeine

Is not what many students look forward to

But the reward of learning something new and being on your own

Is worth every minute of lost sleep and every freak out

Catch up on sleep during the weekend

Before class don't let anyone hear you groan

Instead find time you can give or loan

Get your books and grab a friend

The semester is only beginning and so is the new year...

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.

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.
