It's the most wonderful time of the year.

Little Five Hundred week is the same as Christmas for multiple reasons. Here are 10 reasons why I think so:

1. They both have quite the build-up. For weeks, people talk about and anticipate the holiday's events.

2. They both only last so long. After patiently awaiting their arrival, they come and go in a blink of an eye.

3. The day after both of them you are hit with a small depression. It was so fun and you felt such bliss, and now it is over and the waiting begins again.

4. Both of them you are constantly smiling -- maybe even crying because of such extreme happiness. Your heart is bursting, about to explode because you never knew you could be having so much fun and being so happy.

5. You are surrounded by loved ones -- Little Five is more of a friend event, but you get the idea -- it wouldn't be the same if you were experiencing it by yourself.

6. Classes don't happen. Well, for Christmas this is actually 100 percent true, but for Little Five you might get lucky and your professor could cancel a few classes that week.

7. People are friendlier than normal. Everyone is happier than the average week for both events.

8. Similar to the 12 days of Christmas, the week leading up to Little Five there are multiple events and celebrations to take part in.

9. There is one core event with an eve event leading. On Christmas Eve there is mass or church service -- Little Five there are street sprints. On Christmas there is the exchanging of gifts and Christmas dinner -- Little Five there is the actual race.

10. Both Little Five and Christmas are two of the happiest times of the year. Sadly, you can only truly celebrate Little Five for four years while in college, whereas Christmas is an annual lifetime event.

So, live it up and enjoy it all while you can. #blessed.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism

When we think of events that have transpired in the US over the last few years, a lot of it ends up in spotlighting the division in the country. However, things across the pond seem to be no better - at least when it comes to sports.
