The 14 Stages Of The Last Week Of Class

You need sleep, but also have 13 things due in the span of 4 days.

The 14 Stages Of The Last Week Of Class

December... it's full of finals, due dates, Mariah Carey, and the holidays. It's the worst time of the year, but the best because after finals, you get to not think about classes for a month and catch up on all the sleep you lost throughout the semester. But what's worse than finals week is the last week of classes, when all the due dates you've put off can no longer be put off anymore.

1. When it's December 1 and you have seven things due, three exams, and haven't slept in three days.

You tell yourself everything is going to be ok.

2. So you stress.

And stress, and stress, until you can't stress anymore.

3. And cry.

The tears just flood over you and you can't help but sob. College is great, isn't it??

4. Then call your mom to cry some more.

She can't even console you at this point.

5. After the pep talk, you feel determined to get everything done.

"I got this!" is your go-to mantra.

6. But, now you're tired.

You will do anything if it means you can sleep for 20 minutes.

7. And really hungry.

I mean really, really, hungry.

8. Suddenly, it's 2 a.m. and you have only written three sentences and your paper is due in the morning.

Welp, looks like you're pulling another all-nighter.

9. You've made it to Friday... somehow.

The weekend could NOT have come soon enough.

10. Then Sunday hits and you find yourself back at the Lib.

Club Lib... not as lit as the actual bar.

11. So you cry some more.

"I can't do this anymore" is what you're telling yourself at this point.

12. But, you fight through the tears to get everything done because you're determined.

You start watching motivational videos online to try and cure your blues.

13. In the end, you feel on top of the world because you made it through the last week of class alive.

You're not sure how you did it. But, you did so you count this week as a win.

14. But, now it's finals week so good luck.

Send help because the cycle is repeating itself.

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.
