A Lot Can Happen In These Last Few Weeks Of The Semester

There is still time for things to happen!

A Lot Can Happen In These Last Few Weeks Of The Semester
Mya Weatherby

This last semester of this school year is coming to a close and I have realized that there are still things I want to change or happen in these last few weeks. Looking at how short of a time that I have left, I feel as though I don't have time to be who I want to be by that time or change what I want to change. I have begun to feel disappointed in myself for not being at a certain point in my life by this time and have just decided to give up on those goals and just wait until next year.

Here is the reality with that type of thinking, if I have that attitude I am limiting and hindering myself for growth. I want to free from myself from that limited thinking and embrace the time I do have left in the semester because so much can happen in just five weeks.

In these last few weeks of the semester, I want to create some new habits. You might be thinking, "Don't you think it is a little too late to develop a habit especially if everything is just going to change?" and that can be true depending on the habits that you are trying to create. For instance, I want to make the habit of getting up at 6 a.m. and making time to spend with God reading my Bible in prayer. That is a habit that I can carry throughout the rest of my life.

Another one that I want to incorporate into my life is eating my meals at a specific time because I do currently struggle with eating consistently and that is another thing that I can take with me outside of these last few weeks. So life habits/disciplines can be started right now and don't need to wait.

In these last few weeks of the semester, I want to be intentional with new people and allowing new friendships and overall people into my life to get to know about who is around me. I really enjoy being social and being able to just walk up to someone and have a conversation is the type of person I have always wanted to be and that starts with the practice of inviting people into your life. If you are still struggling to find friends at this point I want you to know that in these last few weeks you still have a chance to even find one new friend that could possibly be a lifelong friend.

Finally, in these last few weeks of the semester, I want to be closer to God than I ever have before. I want to use this time to increase my knowledge of Him and who He created me to be on this earth.

I hope that after you have read this, you take a look at what you may want to happen for these last few weeks left in the semester and chase it. So much can still happen!

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.
