5 Tips To Survive Spring Semester

Spring semester is a tough one. Here are some tips to getting through it and surviving it.

1. Make A Friend To Hold You Accountable


If you don't have one already, find a friend in each of your classes. Someone who can text or call you when you miss class. Someone who will check in to see if you are coming or not. Not someone who will just say okay and send you notes. Find someone who will motivate you and miss you when you aren't there.

2. Schedule


SCHEDULE. SCHEDULE. SCHEDULE. With the spring weather coming it can be difficult to keep focus and not go outside and play frisbee or hike with friends. But you can always schedule in time to study and time to go hiking. Try not to go off and do spontaneous activities....at least until the semester is over.

3. Think of Graduation


If you are graduating then just think about how close it is! If not, then try to think about all the summer adventures you will have or experience! Think of break and how close you are to finishing up the school year.

4. Doing Something In Your Community


Having some kind of purpose that will keep you busy is a great way to also keep you organized about your scheduling. It will also fill you with some type of happiness and fulfillment that will help motivate you to keep going and to keep making a difference.

5. Remember What Your Goals Are


By doing this you can stay motivated. Whether that means thinking about your career, the money you'll be making, etc. Anything that can help keep you on track and focused is always a positive to have in your life.

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.
