The End of Semester Feels As Told By A Procrastinator

Because this time of the semester is stressful for everyone - especially those of us who put everything off until this time of the semester.

The End of Semester Feels As Told By A Procrastinator

Calling all college students:

It's getting close to the end of the semester and for many of us, it feels like the end of the world.

Half of us are overachieving, getting up early, staying up late, planning ahead, studying. The better half of us. Hats off to you folks.

The other half of us are barely hanging on. We're getting up a half an hour before class, staying up late to watch Netflix (when we could be doing homework). Studying happy hour prices at various Thursday - Saturday night hangouts. And the only planning ahead we do involves calculating just how long we can put off starting these final projects. The more creative half of us. The half of us I'm speaking to today. Here's 17 feelings I bet you can relate to, ya slackers.

1. When it was Thanksgiving break and you were enjoying yourself even though people kept bringing up your "responsibilities".

2. When you actually tune into the lecture and you overhear something about a project being due next week.

3. When you're complaining about having so much school work, so your parents suggest less partying.

4. When your friend tells you how much time they've been dedicating to their studying.

5. When you realize coffee doesn't cure complete exhaustion.

6. When you gotta fill out course evaluations for that course you've been struggling in.

7. When you realize you didn't use up all of your excused absences (but you can't skip anymore because we're in the important home stretch).

8. When that project is due in 24 hours and you realize you got 18 more to kill before you have to start it.

9. When you ask your professor a question and they say, "haven't you been doing the readings?"

10. When the professor says they're curving the exam to the highest grade, and you see that overachiever smiling like they're about to get 100%.

11. When you don't even want to go to class to begin with, and now you gotta freeze, slip and slide, and walk through a blizzard to get there.

12. When people say, "you look tired today."

13. When everybody starts writing something down at the same time like the professor said something important, but you missed it because you were wondering what to eat after class.

14. When the professor says the exam will be challenging but "you'll be fine if you've been doing the readings".

15. When the professor says "I know most of you are probably almost finished with this paper" but you haven't even looked at the directions.

16. When you walk out of that last exam and your brain is dead but your spirit is ready for the holidays.

17. When you realize you're one semester closer to the real word.

Regardless of how well you do (or don't do) let's look on the bright side - this semester is almost over. Some of us are graduating, some of us are excelling, and some of us are learning even more extensive methods of procrastination.

Whatever you're doing to finish this semester strong - do it well. Good luck on your finals, people!

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
