A Typical College Day, As Explained By GIFs

There are lots of ups and downs (but mostly downs).

A Typical College Day, As Explained By GIFs

1. Waking up is almost never easy, especially when you have an 8:00am class.

Often times, you wake up a few minutes (and in some cases, hours) late.

2. Showering in the morning really requires a lot of work, but "society" tells you that you have to be "clean."

The shower is a great place to unleash your inner performer (and your tears when you remember that you haven't even started that ten-page essay).

3. Getting ready for class should really take you more time, but then you remember that school isn't a fashion show.

Everyone wears sweatpants anyway.

4. Breakfast almost always consists of muffins and coffee from that grab-and-go place on campus.

It takes a lot of dedication to eat a healthy and balanced breakfast every single day.

5. Class time involves taking notes, engaging in discussion, and falling asleep and zoning out.

You only really need to pay attention towards the end of class, when your professor gives a quick recap of class then assigns the homework.


If lunch isn't the highlight of your day, please reevaluate your life.

7. After lunch, you don't have anything to do, so you take this time to be responsible and do your homework.

8. Five minutes into study time, your friend sends you that "WYA?" text, and you start packing everything up.

Let's be real, though: your goal was never to do work. You've just been waiting for that text for these last five minutes.

9. The rest of your day just involves making irresponsible decisions.

It's virtually impossible to finish that ten-page paper while you're hanging out with your friends. Just let it go.

10. Time flies when you're with your friends, and sometimes you just randomly fall asleep instead of doing work.

It's just past 1:00am and you wake up in your friend's room with a slice of pizza on your forehead.

11. These last few hours of the night are actual homework time.

Well, you got four of the ten pages of that paper done, and it was only the rough draft anyway. That'll have to do. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices in order to get "enough" sleep.

12. At this point, the weight of your day is too heavy for your eyelids to handle.

You brush your teeth and hit the hay. After all, you have to be rested in order to make all those bad decisions tomorrow.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
