The Week Before Thanksgiving Break As Told By The Characters Of ​'Friends'

Thanksgiving break is a crucial time in every college student's life. School is beginning to feel more like jail, and our heads just might explode. We desperately need to get the heck out of here to see our friends, family, and most importantly, our pets.

Unfortunately, the week leading up to Thanksgiving break basically drags on for years. Lucky for us, the characters of Friends completely understand our struggle.

First, it hits you that there's only one week until the glorious Thanksgiving break.

But then, you realize all of the work you have to do before then.

You attempt to play off your stress like it's no big deal.

But, you spiral into a mental breakdown because there's no way in the world you're getting everything done.

Meanwhile, your professors continue assigning work, while your motivation continues to go downhill.

Then, when your professors try to talk to you in class, you're just like:

Towards the end of the week, you literally start to feel like you're in prison.

But, at last, you begin to see the light of the promised land (aka home).

And you can almost taste your mom's turkey.

It's finally time to leave, and you say adios to all of your friends.

Now it's time to turn up with some mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie!

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.

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.
