10 Questions You're Tired Of Being Asked At Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to sit down with your family and catch up on all of the latest family news and drama. There is tons of food, laughter, and good family spirit. It's all fun and games until all eyes start to rest upon you. Yes, you—the college student in the family that everyone tends to stalk on social media and then degrades you with questions at every family get together. Aren't the holidays wonderful?

Here are 10 questions that every college student hates being asked at Thanksgiving:

1. Are you dating anyone?

The first cut is the deepest and ouch, that one hurt. Thanks again, Uncle Richard, for reminding me of the single life.

2. How do you like school?

About as much as I like sitting here answering these questions is what I'd like to say. Instead of telling the truth, I'll just say that I love it and everything is going great.

3. What's your major?

Although I have only told you every single holiday, my major is Journalism. Yes, I know you don't care and I also know that you are going to ask again at Christmas.

4. And exactly what are you going to do with that?

I don't know, honestly. Cry? Maybe. Drop out of school? Debatable. I'm just trying to graduate without having grey hair.

5. How are your grades?

*Chugs nearest alcoholic drink* Cs get degrees, grandma. *Gets disapproving look* Uh, let's remember that at least we all have our health...right?

6. Do you go out a lot?

Only every time I fail a test, embarrass myself, or forget to go to the gym. So no, I don't go out...

7. Is the food good at your school?

Hahahahaha. Let's take a moment to realize that this is a nice way of asking "have you gained weight?" and the answer to that is yes.

8. So what do you do in all of your free time?

First off, what is free time and can you use it in a sentence? Second, all I can manage to do is sleep anymore.

9. Wait, how soon until you graduate?

Somehow, not soon enough. Before I can feel my eyes start to roll, I pleasantly reply with two years.

10. Have you looked into any internships?

And now we go back to square one about my poor choice in job markets...

Well guys, Thanksgiving isn't all bad, at least there is free food. If you ever start to feel bad about your answers, or lack thereof, to these questions just remember we are all in the same sinking ship!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
