Thoughts You Have While Waiting At The Airport

At some point in time, you find yourself stuck in the airport thinking at least one of these things.

Thoughts You Have While Waiting At The Airport

Going to the airport for some is a wonderful experience but for others it's just an unfortunate period of time before going on vacation. Airports are filled with food and shops for your entertainment but you might not have the time you want to walk around unless you're like me and get stuck for hours on end in airports across the country. Here are a few feelings some might have while sitting in the building that sits between you and fun.

1. Woo! I'm getting on a plane!

Whether you are going to a fun destination or just back home, its always fun to fly rather than drive. It’s always an adventure that you make your own.

2. Why is it so cold?!

It could be 90 degrees outside but sitting in the airport you need a blanket and a sweatshirt?! Having my nose frozen is not in the plans for the day.

3. My flight is delayed…great!

Of course your flight gets delayed! Your flight is always late leaving when you fly so this is no surprise. What is happening that your flight crew couldn’t make it on time or the last flight was late getting in? I just don’t get it considering when a flight is late leaving a gate, it costs the airline tons of money!

4. Why is food so expensive?

Due to your flight being delayed, you decide to grab a snack or a meal depending on how long you’re going to be there. Walking around you see restaurants that you normally eat at home, and a burrito there is $8.00 at home, but at the airport its $13.00. Even if you want a candy bar, it's almost $3.00! Outrageous, I tell you.

5. Finally boarding!

After a two hour delay the gate attendant finally tells you the flight is going to start boarding, but for some odd reason you feel like you want to cry you're so excited. Getting on the plane you now have to find your seat, and you pray that you don’t get stuck next to a guy who smells.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
