Adulthood is looming just around the corner.

7 Thoughts You Have As You Go Into Your Last Semester Of College

Going into your last semester of college is a weird time. It's this combination of excitement, nostalgia, sadness and fear. But all of that is the culmination of years and years of hard work and that makes it all worth it. So as you embark on your last semester, know you're not alone. Here are some of the thoughts you have as a soon-to-be college graduate.

1. You countdown until your last homework assignment is due. Ever.


College may be a fun time, but homework is not. The second you turn in that last homework assignment you'll breathe out a sigh of relief.

2. You make the most of your last memories with your college friends. 


There's something truly special about the friends you meet in college. They're your people, the ones who make those four years worthwhile. Saying goodbye to them will be tough, so spend as much time with them as you can.

3. You start the job hunt.


This is the one that college leads up to, the moment all these years of school have prepared you for. Finding a job is hard, but just remain positive and keep your options open.

4. You try to save up your money. 


Oh yes, the dreaded thing we all worry about as college comes to an end. It's almost time for us to be a full-blown adult and that means supporting ourselves financially. You'll be grateful later on when you save a few bucks here and there.

5. You enjoy the traditions of your school. 


No matter how big or small, it's those special and unique things about your school that make it special. So take those in and enjoy them while you're still a student.

6. You mentally prepare for adulting. 


Being an adult is scary. Taking care of yourself and having actual responsibilities is nerve-wracking. But just know it's ok to not completely know everything and to figure it out as you go along. That's just a part of life.

7. You'll look back and be grateful for these memories. 


College is a fantastic time filled with memories that will last you a lifetime. As you start your last semester don't forget all of those memories that made it worth it. The laughs, the excitement, the friends you've made. Cherish those things and don't take advantage of them.

Here we go. One last semester. Enjoy it, make the most of it and good luck. Adulthood is waiting.

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.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

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.
