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...

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.

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.
