Six Things All Antsy People Know To Be True

You're not boring, my brain just functions differently.

Six Things All Antsy People Know To Be True

For many people, a "lazy Sunday" can be a real blessing, no matter what day of the week it actually falls upon. Lazy days bring perks like getting to sleep as long as you want, lounge around comfily all day and catch up on your favorite tv shows. I'm sure that, if given the chance, most people would probably prefer having more lazy, nothing to do days.

If you're like me however, the thought of having a lazy day, much less multiple in a row, is something you try to avoid nine times out of ten. You're the kind of person who always has to be doing something, and not doing anything is horrible.

Here are six things that everyone that has the "restless bug" know to be true.

1. Always need to be productive.

Waking up is hard sometimes, but once you're finally up you feel almost immediately compelled to start your to-do list. New day, new tasks.

2. Don't know how to relax.

At the end of your to-do list, or even worse, on days you don't have anything to do, you go a little nuts. You're constantly searching for something to do. At this time, people tend to suggest "just sit and relax, maybe listen to music or watch tv." What they don't understand is that sometimes watching tv just doesn't cut it, especially when there's nothing good on or you just finished your Netflix binge series.

3. Weekends are tough.

Since you don't know how to relax, weekends, summer vacations and any other times where having fun and/or being productive is such a high expectation, can be pretty big let downs. No matter how hard you try, you can't seem to get on board with all of the "chill at home and watch movie days" that people seem to enjoy.

4. Accidentally offending people

If you're hanging out with someone who just wants to have a lounge around and do nothing day, it's easy to get restless. Since you always want to constantly be doing something, you might give off vibes that the other person is boring you. This isn't the case at all. It's not them, it's your constant need to be engaged in activity, but nobody really understands that.

5. The feeling of a wasted day.

If you don't do a certain amount of things a day, you feel like your whole day was wasted. I don't know about anyone else, but this feeling dampers my mood rather quickly, especially if you feel like this a few days in a row.

6. Doing the most random things, just to keep busy.

I'm 22 years old and I do crossword puzzles in my spare time. Crossword puzzles, you know with ads for products for a much older population in the back. I did this the summer I was 19, too. It's just something to do and keep my mind busy so I don't go too crazy and annoy those around me too much.

So there you have it. From all of the people like myself who constantly have to be doing something, we're sorry. We really like hanging out with you, it's just sometimes our brains don't like being idle.

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.
