Santa's coming to town and he has cash!

12 Things On Your College Christmas List

Tis the season for giving…and receiving lots of precious, precious presents. When you were little, Christmas was a magical time where Santa could bring any toy, gadget, or gizmo that you could have dreamed of. When you were a teen, Christmas was your opportunity to ask for the latest technology that you couldn’t pay for by yourself. But now that you’re in college and “all grown up,” your list to Santa looks quite different. Here are 12 things you might find on it.

1. Socks

Twelve years ago, you literally would have cried if you unwrapped these. Now you’re more thrilled to see them than Dobby was.

2. Cash

Let’s just skip all the fanfare and ask for what we really want.

3. A Netflix subscription

Mom and Dad have cut you off from your family account, and it is severely impacting your ability to chill.

4. Office supplies

Because boring yet practical stocking stuffers just scream holiday cheer!

5. A new car

Not that this will ever actually happen. Life isn’t like a Honda commercial where a new car with a monstrous red bow is waiting for you out in the driveway. I mean, who can actually afford that on the fly?

6. A boyfriend/girlfriend

Some things even Santa can’t help you with. A free Tinder Plus subscription will have to do.

7. Alcohol

Christmas is all about feeling all warm and fuzzy inside and being happy with those around you, right? This will help.

8. More meal swipes for the dining hall

All I want for Christmas is six lunches per week...

9. A passing GPA

Because finals happened...oh, how they happened.

10. More alcohol

11. A gym membership

Because after following up two weeks of stress eating for finals with two pounds of Christmas cookies, a few miles on the treadmill couldn't hurt.

12. A Tan

You don't care if it's a week in the Bahamas or a gift certificate to the tanning salon, you just need some color.

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.
