Senior Soccer Season

The end of my competitive soccer career.

Senior Soccer Season

With pre-season for soccer beginning in August it will be surreal for me; I will be entering my senior season of college soccer. I have played soccer since I was five years old and competitively since I was seven, so you could say that soccer has been part of my life for as long as I can remember.

Even though my soccer career will most likely end at the end of the season, I am excited to see what opportunities open to me that I haven't been able to pursue because of how busy I have always been with soccer. I haven't been on an actual summer vacation trip since I was in middle school and most of my time after school or on the weekends was always filled with soccer or doing my homework when I had breaks to do it.

Sometimes I feel like I will be lost without having a constant practice and game schedule to keep me on top of everything I need to do for my classes. During the brief period of time during off-season when we haven't been allowed to have actual practices I feel like I have had a hole in my schedule where I don't know what to do and I wind up going to the gym anyway to workout or I sit in my room and look over the homework I have already completed out of habit.

I know that this season is going to feel like it goes by faster than any other season I have played, but I hope to make the best of it that I can and make it a memorable season not only for me but also for my teammates and the other seniors on the team. I will miss getting the chance to play competitively, but I am excited for the new opportunities I will have after I graduate college.

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.
