7 Things I look Forward To During Sophomore Year At FSU

Freshman year was great, but I'm ready to make sophomore year my b**ch!


Last summer, I was a rising freshman, nervously picking out dorm room decorations and fantasizing about my first year of college. A year later, I have tons of great memories to look back on, an amazing group of friends, and a heart filled with love for my school.

Now that I have become accustomed to college life, I'm ready to take on sophomore year and make it the best it can be. From football season to making new memories with my besties, I'm convinced sophomore year will be the best it can be. Here are a few things I'm looking forward to.

1. Living with my friends

While living in a dorm had its perks, I am beyond excited to move off campus. Living with three of my best friends and having my own room honestly sounds like a dream come true. I can't wait for all the memories that will come from living with my favorite people!

2. My classes

Freshman year was loaded with intro courses, many of which didn't exactly peak my interest. Now that I have those classes out of the way, I'm ready to focus on my major-specific classes and begin learning about things that actually seem exciting to me.

3. Football season 

Football season means tailgating and frat parties, and honestly, this may be the best part of the fall semester. Showing off your school spirit and having a great time with your friends is one of the biggest perks of going to a big state school.

4. Not having a meal plan 

While the dining hall was convenient and served up some pretty good cookies, I am so happy to not be tied down to a meal plan this upcoming school year. Having more freedom with what I want to eat seems minuscule, but it'll be such a nice change from being forced to eat all my meals in the dining hall.

5. Making new friends 

Now that I have a group of friends, I think it will be a lot easier to expand my social circle. For me, the beginning of freshman year meant doing lots of things by myself. Now that I have my group of people, I look forward to being more social and outgoing and expanding my friend group.

6. Getting a job

For me, having a job during freshman year caused me too much stress. I wanted to focus on my classes and finding my place at school. Now that I know what college is all about, I am so ready to find a job and start making some money. Building my resume and starting to save up for the future is so important, and I look forward to taking on some extra responsibility.

7. Beach trips

Going to school in Florida means the beach isn't far away, and now that many of my friends have brought their cars up to college, weekend beach trips are a must. I'm so excited to take some time away from the stress of college and relax by the ocean with my friends.

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
