15 Signs You're Ready For The Holidays

Your mind is skipping a holiday, Thanksgiving, but you don't care. Here are 15 signs that you're ready for Christmas cookies and hot chocolate.

1. On November 1st, you automatically started listening to Christmas music.

14. You're hoping for a white Christmas, even though it's Texas, so it doesn't snow.

15. Most importantly, knowing that you're going home (after a long semester) for the holidays and seeing your family and loved ones keeps you motivated.

Before you know it, the holidays will be here, then another whole year of waiting for the season to come. If you haven't already, start your Christmas countdown and get into the holiday spirit!

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

Wikimedia Commons

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
