10 Things To Look Forward To Over Winter Break

You have survived the fall semester. Your finals are either slowly approaching or just finishing; either way, you made it. Congratulations! Winter break is on its way and you can finally relax. Here's a list of ten things to look forward to this winter break.

1. Not having any school work:

Thanksgiving break was such a tease. Odds are you had a paper due the day after you got back. Winter break means zero schoolwork. Five weeks of absolutely nothing. It's finally over.

2. Not setting an alarm:

It's the most exciting feeling. when you no longer have to wake up for your class at 8:45 a.m. This break, I refuse to be up before 11 a.m.

3. Sleeping in your own bed:

Whoever told you that mattress pads would make your school bed feel like your home bed is just not an honest person. Absolutely nothing compares.

4. Actual showers:

We all know dorm showers are not actual showers. Ah, finally, some room to shave your legs in peace.

5. Real food:

I’m pretty sure we were all over dining hall food the second week of September. Hello home cooked meals.

6. Winter sales:

If you think the deals stop after Black Friday, you are completely mistaken! December is the month of last minute flash sales. Buying all of your Christmas gifts with enough money left to spoil yourself? What could be better?

7. Seeing your friends:

When you go away for school, you realize just how much you love your friends from home. Nothing is better than reuniting for five weeks.

8. Being with your pets:

All the cuddles! The best feeling is being attacked with love from your precious animals

9. Seeing your family:

No matter how far you go away for school and how independent you becomes, spending time with your family rocks. You'll always have a million things you want to do with them.

10. The holidays:

CHRISTMAS. HANNUKKAH. KWANZA. NEW YEARS. Whatever you celebrate, it’s always the best time of the year.

Eat, sleep, and be merry this winter break. Enjoy your next five weeks of absolutely nothing; we all know you deserve it!

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.

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.
