Even though there doesn't seem like any...

11 Reasons Not To Cry During Finals

Ah finals, the darkest time of the year. You're just so ready to be done with this semester and relax for a month without having to worry about school work or studying. It seems like you have 25 hours of work and only 24 hours in a day and sleep is now a luxury, almost like taking an extravagant vacation. The next two weeks offer very little relief and positivity so here are a few examples of the light at the end of the tunnel.

1. The holiday season is just around the corner!


Whether you celebrated Hanukkah last week, are looking forward to Christmas or you celebrate the winter solstice or another holiday around this time, there's a lot of cheer and happiness and cookies being exchanged.

2. Even if you're not a big holiday person, you still get to see you loved ones.


Family/friends time is at an all time high around this season. Keep your head up and know that you can spend some quality time with the people who care about you and believe that you're going to do your best on your finals.

3. ABC's 25 days of Christmas


Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, you've gotta love some of these Christmas movies. From the extremely quotable Elf, to the classics like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, these are all heartwarming movies that you can cuddle up with a warm blanket and some hot chocolate.

4. Justin Bieber's new album


Ladies (and gentleman, don't be embarrassed,) if you're feeling particularly plagued by stressed and responsibilities, just listen to a few tracks off this album and let J Biebs beautiful voice serenade your stress away.

5. The new "Star Wars" movie is almost here


Maybe you're not a nerd like I am, but this is probably going to be the highlight of 2015. A wait ten years in the making is almost over and all of our questions are about to be answered.

6. Videos of animals playing in the snow

There's really no need for explanation, they're just the best.

7. Drake ugly Christmas sweaters

8. Your sleep schedule will soon return to normal


Don't worry, in just a short week you can start going to bed at a normal hour and sleep 10 hours without waking up and feeling like you have no time to do anything that day.

9. And you'll also have an excuse to curl up in a blanket and do nothing


The glory of being between semesters is that you don't be forced to do any school work, so you might as well watch 11 seasons of a new TV show in a month and just never leave your room ever.

10. New year, new you


It's almost 2016! This seems so crazy to a lot of us, but it's nice to have a fresh start and a clean slate.

11. You're almost there


I know that it might seem like everything is the end of the world this week, but you've made it this far and you can keep going. You're one step closer toward graduating or to getting to classes that actually have to do with your major, or just toward life outside school. But you've made it to the end of the semester and that's something to be proud of.

Good luck with finals and Happy Holidays!

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.
