The First Week Of College, As Told By Michael Scott

The First Week Of College, As Told By Michael Scott

We are about a week away from school starting and let me tell you, the struggles are going to begin. Of course, no one understands our struggle except for the world’s best boss, Michael Scott.

1. When you can’t find a single parking spot on the first day of class.

2. When the professor keeps you the whole time on “syllabus day.”

3. You find out at the end of that class you have a project due next week.

4. Having to deal with financial aid.

5. When you tell your friends that you’re going to class everyday this semester.

6. When you can spot freshman at their first party.

...compared to everyone else at the party.

7. Having to purchase the textbook for class knowing you will only use it once.

8. Running into your ex on campus.

9. The false interest you have in many campus organizations.

10. Freshmen.

11. When the professor asks, “does anyone else have any questions?”

12. Having to get up for your 8 a.m.

13. Finding out that you made friends with the one person in class that has all the notes, quizzes, and tests.

14. The things you want to spend your refund check on.

15. Making new friends.

16. Seeing old friends.

17. Then your phone is dry that first weekend everyone is back.

18. Then you go out on a Monday.

19. And, of course, when you wake up late for class.

20. Then after making it through week one, but you still have the rest of the semester to deal with.

So here is to all the struggles we will endure making our way to adult life. Good luck to everyone and may the curve be in your favor!

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.

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.
