Struggles Of A SHU Student As Told By Spongebob Squarepants

Struggles Of A SHU Student As Told By Spongebob Squarepants

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? And who knew a cartoon sponge would be so relatable, especially to a bunch of college kids residing in the lower half of New England? Here are a few of the many struggles SHU students faced as told by the iconic sea sponge himself, Spongebob Squarepants.

1. When you miss the shuttle because you put your faith in the Ride Systems app.

Transportation is a very important thing- especially if you don't happen to be blessed in having a car on campus. So when you think the shuttle is arriving at 2:00 and you get there at 1:58, only to see that it already departed and the estimated pick up time for you is 2:36, welp it kinda feels like Rock Bottom. (See what I did there?)

2. That God-forsaken walk back from Linda's to your dorm.

"And my feet are killing me." It's a good thing that that buffalo chicken quesadilla or mile high burger is almost always worth it. Speaking of food, that brings us to our next struggle...

3. When you swipe in at 63's after 2 and between 4 before realizing the courses aren't out.

Thank GOD that the pasta is always there.

4. Using a computer from the printing lab and waiting for the sign in to go through:

"We're not cavemen! We have technology!"

5. When the Ben and Jerry's restock still hasn't come in at Outtakes.

This one may just be me, but there are standards with ice cream.. and honestly those last two pints just don't cut it for me. (I'm talking to you, Cherry Garcia.)

6. Spending all of your declining dollars before the semester is over like:

Cause of death: The cup $4.50 cup of fruit and the burrito station. (Chartwell's, if you're reading this, it's probably too late.)

7. The library or any study space during finals/midterms week

Don't cha just love how tiny our school is?

These are just some of the many struggles that have become like second nature to all of us. Just remember to keep calm, and always make sure that despite these struggles, you're still living like Larry.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
