The 21 Stages Of Seniors In The Last Month Of College As Told By 'Parks And Rec'

Here we are, one month away from entering the "real world" and I honestly can't tell if I'm relieved to finally be done with school or if I should enroll for classes next year to keep from facing adult life. However you're feeling I can guarantee you have a countdown going.

1. Laying in bed to avoid final papers and projects

2. Finally finding the motivation to do all of your final papers and projects and getting them done in one sitting

3. Going out the night before class and then showing up to class because attendance is mandatory and you need the easy credits at this point

4. When your professor decides to make the final a take-home

5. When you realize that your degree is going to make you money and that you'll finally be able to afford good pizza

6. When a classmate who is not a senior asks about a homework assignment the prof hasn't brought up in weeks

7. Going to the gym may suck but its time you don't have to spend thinking about entering the real world

8. The pep talk you give yourself the night before a group project is due and you realize no one has done anything yet

9. When you're at a job interview for an actual job in your field and they ask what your strengthens and weaknesses are

10. The day of your final presentation and you're nervous as HELL so you enlist your roommate for support

11. When you haven't showered in 6 days and a junior asks if you're excited to graduate

12. Even when you get 8 hours of sleep it just doesn't give you the energy you need

13. When you pulled an all-nighter and your roommate tries to get you up for class

14. What it feels like when negotiating pay after accepting a job offer

15. Walking into your final class EVER

16. Taking your final exam like

17. Waking up the morning of graduation day after a night out of drinking and celebrating


19. That feeling you get when you put on your grad cap and gown

20. Watching your best friend receive their diploma

21. When you realize your loan payments start in 6 months

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.

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!

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.
