A Prayer To Begin A New Semester For College Students
Huffington Post

It's the first day of a new semester and many of you are one step closer to graduation. You'll spend the next few weeks rearranging class schedules and adjusting to new professors. Eventually, your social life will come to an end and you'll spend the next few months making a home in the university library, suffering from stress due to a lack of sleep and binge drinking Starbucks for energy. When in doubt about how you're going to make it through the semester, pray it out. Here is a small prayer to help get you through this semester:

Dear Lord,

Today starts another new semester. Give us all as college students a stable mind to perform to the best of our ability in all that we do. Help us to study with consistency and dedication. Give us silence so that we may process the knowledge we have been taught. Let us sleep peacefully at night, so that we are refreshed and prepared for all lectures, class presentations and exams. Continue to guide us during times of trouble. Help us to realize that we have done our best possible on every school assignment. Let us be satisfied with the work we have done, but also help us to see areas where we may approve upon academically in the future.

Lord, let us never forget to devote time to give you praise and worship. Continue to teach us right from wrong and allow us to stray away from all activities that may bring negativity to our lives. Grant the professors the ability to teach each and every student. Keep all faculty and staff members on all campus universities from all hurt, harm and danger during this semester. This prayer I ask in your heavenly name, Amen!

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.
