The worst thing that can ever happen to college students: forgetting to schedule right when your scheduling window opens. When you forget to schedule, you basically go through the stages of grief. Here are some thoughts that every college student has when they forget to schedule.

1. I think I'm forgetting something

There's a nagging feeling that you're forgetting something, but you can't place what it is. Maybe if I ignore it, it'll go away, and everything will be fine.

2. Oh shit!

You're just going along with your day, and then it hits. The thing that you forgot was actually something major.

3. I have to do this right NOW.

There is nothing more important to a college student than scheduling for next semester. It's a race to get your perfect schedule, but you're starting four hours behind everyone else. There is nothing more panic-inducing than forgetting your scheduling time.

4. There will be no open seats in any of the classes that I want.

Signing up for classes is like a fight to the death. So when you aren't ready to go right at the time that you're supposed to be scheduling, you're essentially ruined. Obviously, it's the most logical thing to think that you'll not be able to get into the classes that you want.

5. My perfect schedule is ruined.

You work hard to get the perfect schedule, getting classes at the times that you want, and maybe even with certain professors. Any small issue, like not getting into a class, can ruin the whole schedule, and now you have to completely replan your schedule.

6. I should just drop out.

Not going to college is much easier and much more logical than just trying to recreate a schedule.

7. This might as well happen.

When you're recreating your schedule when most everyone has already scheduled, there are so many already filled classes. You can't get into some of the ones that you want either because they're full of you just can't take them because of prerequisites. Once one bad thing happens, something else going wrong just seems like exactly what should happen to you.

8. This is... something.

You're enrolled in 15 credit hours, but they are completely different than your original schedule. At least you have classes to go to, for better or for worse.

9. Thank God this is over.

After a good 20 minutes of high stress, it's nice to know that there are classes that you can attend. It's over, you can relax.

10. I hope that this doesn't ruin next semester.

Now the uncertainty sets in. You're not sure if you'll like the classes, and if you're waitlisted, then you don't know for sure what will happen with your classes come the beginning of the semester.

11. I'm never forgetting to do this again.

You sent mental reminders to set up alarms for your scheduling time for the next semester, even though you don't have that time yet. You're ready. You won't forget again.

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.

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.

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.
