The Exact Emotional Progression Of Your First Day Of College, Told By Spongebob

I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready.

The Exact Emotional Progression Of Your First Day Of College, Told By Spongebob

Our little spongey friend who I love dearly is at it again to explain the first day of college. The first day of college honestly kinda sucks, like you can try to keep that spirit up but, all in all, you're going back to school. However, we tend to recognize college differs immensely from high school. So basically here's how it goes...

1. The night before

Some of you might be showering and getting to bed at a decent hour but most of us are not doing that, we're trying to savor that last "summer" night.

2. When your alarm goes off

To push snooze or to not?

3. Getting ready for class

Most of us will probably sit there and debate whether or not its worth it to look decent. Almost always do people decide first impressions are worth the hassle, some however brush their teeth and leave in their pajamas.

4. Walking to class

Here we go, we're in this fully now. Walking to class...hopeful and somewhat happy, maybe even kinda excited.

5. Sitting in class after five minutes

6. When the teacher tells you how much your textbook will be LOL

Yeah sorry since I'm paying $40,000 to go here I actually cannot afford a $300 textbook for each class.

7. Going back to your dorm like...

Even though you've probably only been learning things for about 3 hours.

8. Then your parents call you

"No mom I did not make a single friend." "Hey dad wanna put money on my account, pretty please I won't ask again for a little..."

9. Then your roommate comes back

And you two act like you've been apart way longer than a couple of hours.

10. Next, you begin your same destructive lifestyle choices

As if you don't have to wake up for class tomorrow too...

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.

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.
