Senior Year Winter Break Is The Actual Worst

The only thing anyone wants to know is what your plans are for after graduation *sigh*


Winter break is by far the best part of an Ole Miss student's year. Football season is great, and who doesn't love a good spring break, but it's hard to beat our six-week-long break from classes that not many other schools get to boast. Ever since freshman year, I have loved nothing more than finishing finals and coming back to my hometown to enjoy some Christmas fun before having to go back to the reality of the spring semester.

What's up with senior year then?

It seems that while I'm home this year, all I can think about is the nightmare that is my upcoming graduation. Of course, finishing college is an exciting accomplishment that I do look forward to, and I'm by no means ready to take a fifth year of classes, but I can't help but already feel emotional about this time of year.

Here's the truth about senior year's winter break: this is the last time the holidays are probably going to be exactly like you've always remembered them. After graduation, you may move back home or super close to home, but there will never be a big break from your responsibilities where you can just fully enjoy your time with family and friends. After this year, you may have to travel on Christmas Eve to spend 48 hours with your parents before having to fly straight back for work. Things will just never be the same.

With that being said, maybe this winter break can actually be the best. It's a reminder to hug your parents extra tight and go out on that adventure with your hometown friends. Kiss your dog and remember how wonderful all the winter breaks up to now have been.

But don't forget to give all your friends at school you miss some good holiday love too.

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.
