22 Thoughts That Go Through Every College Student's Head When They Drive Home From School

Am I home yet?

22 Thoughts That Go Through Every College Student's Head When They Drive Home From School

I drove home from school for the first time by myself. Five hours in a car with just me, my music, and a steady drizzle of rain for the first three hours of the drive. If you talked to me recently then you'd know that I was very nervous about making the drive. It ended up being no big deal and a very easy drive. During my drive the only thing to do was sing and think. I did a lot of thinking. Here is a list of some of the most common thoughts I had on my drive.

1. How many more miles on this road?

2. Didn't I have 3 hours to go 30 minutes ago?

3. Should I stop for gas now or later?

4. I'm hungry but I don't want McDonald's

5. Maybe I should just eat when I get home

6. I should've stopped for food but now it's too late

7. Why is this car going 65 in the leftmost lane?

8. Ugh I hate being stuck behind this truck

9. This is such a great song

10. I'm cold

11. I'm hot

12. I'm cold again

13. This song sucks why did I put it on my playlist?

14. When is my turn again?

15. This traffic is the absolute worst

16. Why am I in stand still traffic?

17. Go faster!

18. I have to go to the bathroom

19. You know this actually isn't so bad

20. Just kidding this is the absolute worst

21. The last hour is the worse than the first four combined

22. I'm finally home

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.

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.
