10 Things College Students ACTUALLY Want For Christmas

The holiday season is quickly approaching and all college students are surely counting down the seconds until they can finally relax and be stress-free. In the midst of it all, students certainly get a little distracted from all of the holiday cheer. What, with submitting assignments, writing essays and preparing for finals, who has time to write a Christmas list to Santa?!

Below are the top 10 things that will make College students squeal, if they find them under the Christmas tree this year:

10. For Finals' Week to be OVER.

It's no secret that Finals' Week symbolizes absolute and utter hell for college students. The greatest feeling to ever experience would probably be the feeling of when it's all finally over and time to get home. It's an absolute guarantee that if you were to ask college students what they need, it would be for this hell week to disappear.

9. Lower tuition.

STUDENT LOANS AND COLLEGE DEBT are definitely the root of all worry for college students. Students wake up thinking of it. Students go to sleep thinking of it. This isn't necessarily something you can get them, but, I mean, hey. Why not wish?


Pretty self-explanatory, no? All those Starbucks runs aren't going to pay for themselves!

7. Something that will make procrastination a little more bearable.

As a young adults, It's our duty to binge watch Netflix shows for days on end with no sight of sunlight. Most students procrastinate so being able to watch your favorite shows during the non-stop stress makes it all a little more manageable.

6. Real food.


5. A 4.0 GPA HOLLA.

One can wish, can't they?

4. To see their pets again.

Prepare for the waterworks because we are all missing out on our daily dose of doggies.

3.) Privacy.

No matter how much you love your roommate, going back to your very own room will feel like bliss. Finally, no one can judge you for eating three bags of potato chips and two pints of ice cream as you re-watch the entire series of Friends.

2.) Clothes.

New season, new semester, new expenses! Apart from dorm decor and electronics, students 'NEED' to jazz it up for the next semester. You can't wear college swag every day, am I right ladies?

1. To finally be back with their family.

Here's to the loved ones who made it all possible. Nothing feels better than going home after a looooooooooooong semester and being reminded of where you came from. Despite all the tribulations, family's love has always been constant and this vacation will definitely recharge your battery for the upcoming semester.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
