Summer is flying by WAY too fast which means that it's time for.... school prepping!! So grab your to-do lists, your wallets, and your brains, it's time to list the 10 most important things to do before you head back to class.

1. Get all the cute school supplies!

Whether it's matching paper and folders or just a new set of pens, be sure to stock up on the essentials. Also, hit up all of the back to school sales at office supply stores!

2. Hang out with all of your hometown friends one more time.

If your hometown friends aren't coming to school with you soon you will have to say goodbye for a little bit. Be sure to hit everyone up one last time.

3. Invest in clothes!

Back to school wardrobes are an essential part of summer shopping. Be sure to pick up the new pair of shoes or shorts, or whatever it might be, that will complete your closet.

4. Set up your class schedule.

Hopefully this one's already done. BUT if it's not be sure to register for classes ASAP (rocky)!

5. Go to the pool ~one more time~!

6. Finish up summer classes.

If you're taking any, push through. You're SO close!

7. Go on last minute trips.

Take the time to go on all the trips you can in the last couple of weeks you have with your friends and family.

8. Apply for last minute jobs/internships.

If you decide to work, in any capacity, in the fall make sure you set your schedule and get all paperwork filled out.

9. Organization

If you're moving make sure you unpack all of your stuff. If you're not moving, well take the time to do some {summer} cleaning!

10. Enjoy it!!

Summer went by so fast, sos!! Your freedom is almost gone, so enjoy the time you've got and have fun!

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.

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.
