Starting Off On The Right Foot

By the start of these first weeks sophomore year is going to be amazing.

Starting Off On The Right Foot

Summer has come to its obvious end and classes are right around the corner. Here I am heading back to Bowling Green. As I am writing this I'm sitting in my home for my sophomore year, my sorority house. I'm living in the Alpha Xi Delta house with 16 of my sisters and the first two weeks have been some of the best days and memories and school has not even started yet. It has basically been like a sleepover every night. We have watched way too many movies and Netflix episodes to count already. Ending most nights all around the kitchen island snacking and laughing.

We are all here early for fall recruitment which is super fun but stressful. So far, the lack of sleep has not taken its toll and everyone is super excited to meet the new girls.

This year I'm trying to take a new approach to my school work. I finally decided on my path of study. I am now and management major with an entrepreneurship minor. With this decision, all of my classes are now businesses classes! My schedule is quite exciting but also scary because these are now the classes that matter and not just basic general classes. So, say a quick prayer that I do not final my accounting class because it might actually be the death of me.

My goals for this year are to stay as organized as possible. I want to be better about writing things in my planner because of my hard class schedule and my new position as WKU Odyssey president. I am so excited and inspired with the beginning of the school year and all. I am so ready to start the year off on the right foot!

Also, a quick shoutout to all my house gals because this year is going to rock <3

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.
