Coca- Cola Factory,It's finally almost spring break: the long awaited time of the year where students everywhere are finally able to take a fresh breath of air away from the confines of their desk, and have fun for a week. While most go and travel, if you do end up staying in Georgia, don't fear! If our state may seem incomparable to adventures waiting in California and New York; you'll find yourself proven wrong based off of the five local, and relatively cheap, options available for you to explore below.

1. Go Downtown

Downtown Atlanta is truly one of the most beautiful ventures able to be taken in Georgia; as a bustling city, experience the same ambiance as New York City, travel the running MARTA trains, and too play, wander, and eat in our famous Centennial Olympic Park! Surrounding the park is three of the most famous/ tourist site buildings in Georgia: the famous Coca- Cola Factory, the Georgia Aquarium, and CNN News Station; all able to be toured for under thirty dollars.

2. Visit Your Favorite Film Site

Part of the reason for Atlanta's quick growth is our new popularity in being the site of several world famous television and movie programs. For fanatics, taking a weekend and walking the same streets and corners as your pictured favorites can bring nostalgia and cool recreated photos; a great time for bringing together friends and meeting new people with similar interests. One site is that of the lobby of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis hotel, serving at the high- tec training area in the world famous "Hunger Games" and "Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Popular television show sites are parts of actual towns in Georgia, such as "The Walking Dead" and "The Vampire Diaries." Visiting is completely free, and tours cost under $25.

3. Explore Unique Restaurants

Taking a break from your normal "coffee and bagel" routine to spice it up with a visit to one of Atlanta's most popular eateries is a great time for friends and family to get together, or for a great, long needed relaxation. One of Atlanta's most popular restaurants, the Sun Dial, is completely glass and sits on top of the Westin Hotel, seven hundred and twenty three feet up, that rotates slowly as you eat, giving you a complete view of the city both in the day and in the night. Others include the various mom and pop shops mostly centered in Little Five Points that could be prove to be a great photographic adventure.

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.

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!

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.
