Moving Out, As Told By New Girl

It's a lot harder than it looks, so ladies, get the hot neighbors to help.

Moving Out, As Told By New Girl

Women for years have been trying to break through stereotypes about being weak or lesser than men. For the most part, I agree with the destruction of that philosophy... unless it comes to moving in/out of your apartment with only X chromosomes to help. Big thanks to Jess and the boys for accurately describing the hell that is moving...


When the dreaded day comes to move what should be a year of your life, but looks like 40 years with all of the stuff you accumulated:

You start packing up and you and your roommates find an old bag of deli meat that had fell behind the fridge seven months ago...

And then you all get caught up in all the memories that happen at that apartment and it gets hard to let go...

When you're halfway done stuffing things into boxes and you're pretty sweaty, and all you want is a nap and some delivery service:

But you don't cave and you finally get to close that last box and take a step back and look at the sad empty space...

The shock and awe quickly end when you realize now you get to scrub your apartment from head to toe...

Many hours later, when the old is looking *somewhat* new again, you have to start the trek to the new abode...

Everything is WAY too heavy and you need assistance IMMEDIATELY...

Then the moment comes when you and your roommates realize that you're done cleaning, packing, and heavy lifting...

That is followed by the immediate feeling of sadness because it's the end of an era and some of us might be going separate ways...

But all is well because once roommates, always a family.

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.

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.
