Things Only People With Dietary Restrictions Understand

It sucks, especially when you develop them later in life.

Things Only People With Dietary Restrictions Understand

If you have dietary restrictions, you understand how hard it can be to find foods that you can ACTUALLY eat. And you really really miss the days when you didn't have them. Because your favorite snacks are now off limits and you hate not being able to eat them. Or maybe you eat them and suffer the consequences.

Going to a restaurant and having very few options to eat.

Going to restaurants is the worst and if you're a picky eater, it's a nightmare.

You just really want something but you can't have it. So you're stuck with the food you got. It really can suck.

When you find something you can eat that's really delicious AND a treat!

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 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.
