Prayers For A College Student

Every college student needs a good prayer, but sometimes we forget to pray for the little things.

Prayers For A College Student

As I sit and ponder over my college experiences and many days of praying to just get through the week, I've thought of a couple things people could pray for the average college student.

1. May you always have enough money for rent.

While this may not seem like such a worry that college kids have, it often is something that is in the back of our minds that live off campus. Between trying to study for tests, finishing papers, and keeping our sanity in check, that doesn't leave much time to work every day and balance our money.

2. May your Internet never disconnect.

"GIVE ME A BREAK!" you scream as the final episode of "Grey's Anatomy" comes to a halt during your Netflix binge due to the Internet acting up. I'm kidding! We don't binge watch Netflix in college... But really, the number of times you're finishing an online quiz or looking up information for a paper and your Internet just decides to cut out is ridiculous!

3. May you always have leftovers.

This is huge. In college, it's easy to get sick of the cafe food or Ramen for every meal. When we finally get to go out and spend a little cash on ourselves, we expect to get the biggest portions for as little money as possible. This way we can eat like kings all week until we run out and resort to whatever is lying around the dorm.

4. May you always remember your umbrella on rainy days.

Who enjoys walking out of class just to find out you now go to school in the rain forest? Not me! Looking like a wet dog will never be on my agenda! This is when you reach into your backpack pocket, just to realize you had left your umbrella in the car... Of course.

5. May the first search result be the answer.

Hours of searching for the best source to use for a paper is exhausting, not to mention having homework and not being able to find the answers. Often times we can find ourselves typing in Google as many different ways to ask a question as possible and then going down the whole first page... because no one actually goes to the next page. If it's not on the first one, the answer doesn't exist.

6. May your hair look great and your skin be clear.

We've all had those days where we wake up and our hair can't be saved by a brush and no matter what you do to distract from Mt. Everest on your chin, it's still there. For once, we'd like to wake up five minutes before a class and automatically look ready to take on the world.

7. May you take less than 30 minutes to find parking on campus.

Having to miss a class because you can't find anywhere to park on campus happens more often than one might think. The better question is, "Why can't the University put more parking lots instead of more parking passes?" I'm not a math major, but if you sell 100 passes and there's only 75 spots, I think there may be an issue.

8. May you have the motivation to finish all work due on Monday before Sunday night.

I can count on one hand how many times I've had my life together for Monday before Sunday night. Sundays in college have been dedicated to finally remembering about that worksheet that was given out two weeks ago or putting in that last couple of hours of studying.

9. May you sit in a lecture and actually understand what is being taught.

Oh how wonderful it is when your professor says something and it clicks. Everything feels right and for once you believe your professor may not be an alien after all.

10. May you always believe in yourself and stay hopeful.

Lastly, although things don't always go a college kid's way, pray that we stay hopeful. Pray that we will never be discouraged because of all the mishaps. Pray that we always see the light in the darkness because these years are to be our best.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

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.
