The End of the Semester as Told by Leslie Knope

Our favorite citizen of Pawnee expressing what we all feel as the end of the semester draws near.

The End of the Semester as Told by Leslie Knope

With the end of the semester quickly approaching, we are at that point where there is no turning back. And we all feel that pain.

Like when we're just casually making our way through the semester, and suddenly final assignments appear out of nowhere.

We all want to scream.

We try to pretend it's all a dream and fly away.....

...and then we realize.

Although, we still had that tiny bit of hope.

Then someone tells you there is a final presentation that goes along with the final paper.

*nervous laughter*

So, we resign ourselves to studying and preparing our final papers and projects.

Because it has to be done.

But then our professors try to assign additional work on top of that.

And we enlist our friends just to make sure we stay sane.

They're the only way we'll make it through to the other side.

The professors then hand out the review sheets, and we don't remember half of the lessons on them.

Did we actually learn that this semester?

Then someone asks you how your studying is going.

And, just like that, finals week arrives and it is not pretty.

It feels nearly impossible to survive.

Eventually, though, somehow we make it through to the other side.

Semi-alive at least.

We finally get to catch up on all the things we missed out on.

Like sleep.

Then, the time comes where we realize we are done.

We can finally be at ease...

...until we realize we have to do it all again next semester.

Good luck everyone, and stay strong.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.

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.
