8 Signs You've Been at Binghamton...Way Too Long
You Visit

With a few more weeks left until spring break, your ability to handle life at Binghamton starts to quickly diminish. Is it time to buy a bus ticket back home? Here are a few signs you’ve been at Binghamton way too long.

1. You feel as though you’ve lived the same day over and over...and over

Alarm rings, snooze. The alarm rings again, get up. Go to class. Go to the Union. Sit around for hours. Go to Bartle. Get dinner at C4. Go to your room. Sleep. Wake up and do it again. -Sigh-

2. The color of the walls gives you a migraine.

Right now, wherever you are, take a look around. Are the walls an off-white color? Are they giving you a headache? I think it’s time to go home.

3. You start REALIZING that you are seeing the same people every day.

In a not so big school, the chances of seeing almost the same people every day are high. But once you start to NOTICE that you are seeing the same guy with a weird mustache three times a day...well you’ve either got a stalker or it’s time to go home.

4. Going out no longer brings you much joy

Once upon a time, you were excited to come back to Binghamton and party it up with your friends. Now, you’ve been calling it sick on the night outings, staying in with Netflix and a cup of ramen noodles...IT’S TIME TO GO HOME!!

5. Your appetite no longer exists

Not only have you grown sick of everything the dining halls have to offer, you’ve grown sick of ALL the take out food nearby. At this point you’re only eating to stay alive..not because something looks delicious.

6. Hearing what your mother made for dinner nearly brings you to tears

As you dreadfully make it through another Binghamton meal, you call your mom to check in. Just your luck, you call during dinner time and you’re forced to listen to a run down of all the amazing food she has prepared. Yep, wipe away your tears...let’s start looking for bus tickets.

7. Getting off campus, even for a little, bring you immense joy

Whether it’s going out for dinner, or a simple run to Walmart, leaving campus makes you feel as though you’re on a mini-vacation. Dreading going back to your small cubicle of a room...you decide to take your time picking out your groceries.

8. Seeing the large green Binghamton sign as you drive into campus makes you cringe:

Say no more.

If you are exhibiting, at least, one of these symptoms, there’s a good chance you’re growing sick of Binghamton. Luckily, there is a simple cure: take a nice trip back home. Whether it’s for a small weekend, or a bit longer, you’ll come back feeling able to take on the Binghamton life...for another few weeks.

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.
