The Spirit of Spring


It’s fairly easy to tell when Spring descends upon Athens. Whether it is hordes of rollerbladers sweeping throughout campus or the Chapel Bell’s continuous tolling: one thing that’s for sure is we Athenians are happy folks.On the surface level, of course, it appears that the collective atmosphere conveys excitement. Yet upon further exploration, several of us prefer to live in a bubble world, avoiding talking about what exactly happens after graduation.Considered to be a hot topic for all students, fancy internships, traveling plans, and summer classes all contribute to what eventually results in life-altering decisions. 
Glancing upwards towards the sunny skies, there is undoubtedly an overwhelming feeling of hopefulness. Not only will Spring bring forth promisingly warmer weather, it also has the ability to shift our spirits from somber to vibrant.
Upon our final farewell to the bone chilling winter gusts, the first week in March tends to arise winter exhaustion. Shedding our winter layers, images of springtime in Athens bring forth a slew of possibilities!
Whether spring translates towards attending Relay for Life, visions of Spring Break, baseball games, spring parties, or concerts: there’s always something for each of us to embrace as the next big adventure.                                          
Existing traditionally as a time of renewal, I encourage each and every one of us to take advantage of each opportunity that presents itself. While often times spring exists as a time for new beginnings, it is also a time of closure.
The days are growing longer and summer is just around the corner. With impending graduations, and shifts in the university atmosphere, there is no better of a time than NOW to enjoy these few closing moments to the academic year.

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.
