10 Things You've Already Done If You're Excited To Go Back To College

If you're not excited to go back to college, you probably picked the wrong school.

When you're younger, you probably wished summer could last forever. By the time you're a college student though, I'm sure you're counting down the days until summer ends and you can return to your college town. Being home with your family is always great, but if you're like me, by August you've definitely done these ten things because you can't contain your excitement for the semester to come!

1. Gone dorm or apartment shopping


I always seem to start shopping way, way too early. I get so excited thinking about the new space to come that I just can't wait until August to start shopping.

2. You have a packing list


My packing list seems to grow every day. I'm constantly thinking of more things I need for my upcoming school year.

3. You have a Pinterest board dedicated to dorm decor


A whole section of your Pinterest is dedicated to organization, decor ideas, and things to buy for your apartment or dorm.

4. You've made a group chat with your roommates


If you're living with your best friends like I am, moving in can be that much more exciting!

5. You've perfected your schedule


Every year I try hundreds of combinations of classes to get the perfect schedule: no really late night classes, no really early morning classes, no Friday classes. It seems impossible, but it just takes some playing around and constant obsessing over to figure it out.

6. You've spent way too much time watching move in/college vlogs on youtube


Yes, I like watching other people vlog about moving into their apartments for hours on end. I know it's silly, but it makes me more excited and gives me some great ideas for when I move into mine!

7. You've looked into clubs you can join on campus


Whether your someone who has never been in a college club before or you're in five, you're probably always tempted by the hundreds of options at your university.

8. You've already started planning for the upcoming semester


I think I purchased my planner in June, and I have already filled it out for the upcoming year. It's always great to get ahead and organized!

9. You bring up your school every chance you get


Yes, constantly being asked what school you go to and about your major can get irritating at times. But most of the time, you'd love any excuse to brag about your school to strangers.

10. You're counting down the days until your move in date


33 days until move in... 32 days until move in... 31 days until move in...

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.
