Signs You're The Friend Who Definitely Doesn't Have Their Life Together

Every friend group has that one friend who just cannot seem to get it together. If you don’t know her, she’s probably you. But hey, that’s okay. Not everyone can be poised and put together all of the time like Kate Middleton or Emma Watson. Here are some signs you may be the one friend who just can’t get her act together.

  1. You’re socks never match. In fact, it’s a miracle if your outfit matches at all. This isn’t because you don’t have good taste in clothing. It is simply due to the fact that most of your laundry is on the floor, or the couch, or maybe under your bed. In the rush to work or class you just grabbed the closest items and ran.
  2. You are always late to class or missing it altogether. “Did I have class this morning?” is a question you frequently ask your roommate, and some mornings you wake up five minutes until class so you decide to just try again tomorrow. It’s not that class isn’t a priority. Sometimes mornings are just hard okay?
  3. You never read your emails. They just continue to pile up until the inbox has reached a terrifying number. This gets you in a lot of trouble and has you showing up for class that has been canceled and even forgetting about assignments.
  4. You do everything last minute. “You can’t do this paper the night before” is something you prove wrong every single time you have a paper due. In fact, you’ve probably even started and completed a lengthy assignment less than a few hours before it’s due.
  5. If you didn’t have your roommate, you’d probably never get anywhere you’re supposed to be. She’s the one who wakes you up after your three alarm clocks have been going off for an hour and reminds you when you have meetings and homework and basically any other responsibilities.
  6. You wing things that you most certainly should not wing. Tests, college applications, interviews. You roll with the punches and don’t plan much at all. At the end of the day, you’ve always ended where you were supposed to be anyway.

It’s true, our go with the flow attitude and tendency of waiting until the last minute to ever do anything can be a bit disconcerting to the rest of the world, and if we’re being honest, they probably worry about our well-being more than we ever worry about our own. However, at the end of the day we’ve learned how to handle all the surprises life throws our way (and when you don’t read your emails or texts regularly you get surprised a lot!)

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.
