5 Things You Can Look Forward To Now That Fox Day Is Over

Everybody needs something to get excited for right about now.

5 Things You Can Look Forward To Now That Fox Day Is Over

For the last few years, we've had to wait for Fox Day.

We played Fox Day roulette, we set up camp next to the flagpole, and we suffered the consequences of being "absolutely 100 percent sure it's tomorrow" at least three to five times.

This year, things were a bit different.

Our new president, Grant Cornwell, seemed to understand that we were anxious to get to the beach. And the day was a perfect one for it. It was warm, sunny, and right in the middle of the week. It was the ideal day for a flawless Fox Day.

But now, left with what seems like nothing to look forward to, students are wondering what there is to get excited about now that Fox Day is simply a forgotten dream, a distant recollection (or lack thereof) of a great day spent excused from the classroom.

So if the absence of a Fox Day coming over the horizon has you down, here are a few things to look forward to as the end of the year draws closer and closer.

1. Going To Class Tomorrow Morning

Without the pending possibility of Fox Day happening and canceling classes for the day, you can sleep soundly knowing that you'll be sitting through a full day of classes tomorrow. And the rest of the week. And next week.

2. That Paper You've Been Putting Off

You know which one I'm talking about. The one that has been on the syllabus since the beginning of the semester, but you rationalized it away by saying something along the lines of: "I have plenty of time to write that. It's not even Fox Day yet. I've got time."

You've just realized that time is almost up, and now you get to write five to eight pages on a book you never actually read!

3. Finals

Now that Fox Day isn't sitting in the forefront of your mind taking up valuable space, you can really focus on how quickly finals are approaching and how much studying you haven't done yet.

4. An Unpaid Internship

One of the really amazing things about the life of a college student is getting an unpaid internship. You get to function as someone's slave for an entire summer, and then at the end of it, you get to put it on your resume that you got coffee, made copies, and did lunch runs for a fairly impressive company. Now that you're not waiting for Fox Day anymore, you get to look forward to that! Provided you've gotten an internship, that is...

Or, in the event that you don't have a high profile internship to run off to...

5. Going Home To Face Your Parents' Crushing Disappointment

As much as parents say they will love you no matter what you do, parents are always most proud when they have something to put in the Christmas card or brag about on Facebook. Assuming you've failed them on that count, you get to look forward to going home for the summer and spending almost four months avoiding talking to them about your future. Good times.

See! There are so many things to look forward to after Fox Day! Hope you're having as much fun as I will be.

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.
