The 10 Best Gifts Every Human Should Embrace

The 10 Best Gifts Every Human Should Embrace

Some gifts are worth much more than any material object you will receive.

Everyone loves receiving gifts during the holiday season. Even if it is a simple item such as fuzzy socks, we all feel like a little kid again on Christmas morning. However, there are even better gifts than material objects that mean the whole world to someone, especially during a time full of so much hate. Here are 10 of them:

1. Philanthropy

Nothing feels better than knowing you brought joy and happiness to another person this holiday season. Whether by giving a toy to Toys for Tots, or donating to a charity, the gift of giving outweighs everything else.

2. Home-Cooked Meals

Finally, fresh food that isn't warmed up in a microwave or from a university's dining hall.

3. Family and Friends

There is no better group of people to spend the holiday season with than your friends and family who actually love you instead of fake people.

4. Peace and Quiet

No more crazy fraternity parties, late night lip synching battles, or fights breaking out from down the hall.

5. No Homework or Projects

Winter Break means no more school, which means no more homework, which means no more responsibilities... for now.

6. Freedom

You can do and say whatever you want without being judged by other classmates or professors. You live in the Land of the Free, so use your freedom to your advantage.

7. Making Money

Time to recharge your bank account so you can waste money on $1 beers again next semester or buy more unnecessary wants.

8. Catching Up on Your Favorite Shows

Sometimes during school we fall behind on our favorite shows due to the flood of work we have to do. Now is the perfect time to catch up before school hits us with a brick again.

9. Love

There is no better feeling in the world besides love. You are surrounded by people who care immensely about you, so take this moment to thank them and appreciate it.

10. Living Life

The gift of life is the ultimate precious and priceless gift anyone can receive. You don't understand how valuable it is until someone you know or love loses it, or even yourself. Take the time this holiday season to care for your mental health and surround yourself with happiness. Life is short, so enjoy it while it lasts.

6 Signs You're Experiencing The Infamous Sophomore Slump

Stress goes up, excitement goes down.

As the end of my sophomore year in college is now in sight, I've begun to take a look back on this year and how utterly strange it has been. I've recently found a term that perfectly describes everything I've felt from this year in just two words: Sophomore Slump. This term has been coined to describe a,

"Period of developmental confusion where students may face difficulties in academic, social, and personal development. In addition, after the novelties of college social life have worn off, nothing seems quite as special."

I've definitely experienced this feeling this year, and although I find myself still enjoying college, the stresses have seemed to increase while the excitement has simultaneously worn off. If you're suffering through the Sophomore Slump as well, you might be able to relate to these tell-tale signs.

1. You went from going out every weekend to adopting a sleep schedule similar to your grandparents.

Freshman year, every weekend was full of constant opportunities for parties. You waited your whole life for the true college experience, and last year you went a little too hard. Now, you're making up for it by spending your weekends reading, sleeping and most importantly, binging the latest Netflix original special.

2. Frat parties are yesterday’s news.

I still remember the excitement leading up to frat parties during my freshman year, especially for tailgates. Now, if I ever even do go out, I prefer a house party with people I actually enjoy being around.

3. You begin questioning whether your major is right for you…and is it too late now?

Is my major the right one for me? I'm already too far in! I can't back out now! Sophomore year is basically a giant ball of stress and quarter-life crises.

4. You enjoy feeling more like an adult, but you miss the innocence of being a freshman.

As a freshman, you were still naive to adult life, and while that had its own problems, sometimes you miss being the new kid on campus with a whole world of opportunities ahead of you.

5. Somehow, if it’s even possible, your procrastination has gotten even worse.

If you thought last year was bad...

6. And you still find yourself in a constant state of denial.

It's fine, I'm fine, everything's fine.
