Different Ways To Handle Final Exams

Finals are stressful, but there are ways to deal with them.

Different Ways To Handle Final Exams

Well all of us here at Columbia College have made to what I would say is the most stressful part of the semester....FINALS WEEK! We are stressed yet excited to get them over with so that we can go home for a long, well-deserved break. Sadly, there is no skipping them no matter how much we want too. Trust me, if I could, I'd go home right this moment....but I cannot. However, there are ways for us to handle these types of things; some we've learned over the years or ones we just thought up five minutes ago. So shall we begin?

1. Get plenty of rest; sleep is one of the most important ways to pass a test.

2. Study groups. (That's my go too, especially for biology).

3. Study by yourself. A lot of people need silence to absorb their work.

4. Wanna stay up? Well get that coffee flowing...most wouldn't recommend that but hey we're college students...we gotta have something.

5. A bit unorthodox-ed by if you're feeling overwhelmingly stressed, SCREAM! Go to a pillow or blanket or bed and just let it out into it.

6. Take breaks....your mind can only take so much at a time.

7. This is the most important one. Always remember, you've gotten this far and you can do this! Just take a deep breath and go for it!

Finals may be the most stressful part of the semester but I think we all know that we are all smart enough to do well. We are all intelligent and capable and if no one else believes in you....well guess what? I do! I will always be in your corner.

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.
