16 Things Every College Student Wants for Christmas

16 Things Every College Student Wants for Christmas

Come on Santa, help us out.

It's come to the point in the semester where I wish I could be writing letters to Santa asking for all kinds of toys for Christmas instead of studying. Or can I...? In all seriousness, everyone knows that finals can put quite a damper on a college student's holiday spirit. In the spirit of Christmas (and procrastinating studying), here is the ultimate college student Christmas list, created by yours truly.

1. A 4.0 GPA

There comes a point when having four exams, two papers, and a project due all within seven days can be a little overwhelming...

2. Sleep

College is the time where all-nighters become all too real. Can't we have a break?

3. Money in my bank account

How I manage to spend so much money so quickly? You tell me, Santa.

4. Real food

Cafeteria food can get real old, real fast. And even if you live on your own, making meals ever day can be even more annoying. So what sounds better than a home cooked meal?

5. More Sleep

Just let me lay in bed for 72 hours straight, binge watching netflix, and sleeping.

6. No questions from family members at Christmas dinner

Nothing gets more irritating than hearing "Oh honey how's college? Are your classes going well? Have you met any boys?" Yes, Grandma. College is fine, my classes are hard, and no, I certainly have not met any boys.

7. Free coffee forever

All in favor of Starbucks starting a college student rewards program say I!

8. The perfect boyfriend

Just looking for someone to make snow angels, go ice skating, eat a whole roll of tollhouse cookie dough and snuggle with. Is that too much to ask?

9. No responsibilities

Nothing sounds better than being a second grader again where my biggest responsibility was trying to figure out how to do addition and subtraction.

10. A killer resume

What could possibly be better than having all the credentials for your dream job all laid out on paper?

11. A shower that doesn't smell like feet

Community bathrooms can be gross, but having your own bathroom can sometimes be even more gross. I just want to be able to shower without having to wear flip-flops all the time.

12. A six pack (but not having to work out to get one)

Come on Santa, pull through and just let me have a really fast metabolism so I can eat ungodly amounts of Christmas cookies and not gain any weight

13. Dogs

Honestly nothing will ever be more cute than a dog.

14. More sleep

Dare I say more?

15. Someone to do my laundry

Mom, please help. I don't want to adult any longer.

16. First pick on classes

Nothing says Merry Christmas more than no 8am classes.

17. A medical school acceptance letter

Because undergrad is only just the beginning..

30 Things I'd Rather Be Than 'Pretty'

Because "pretty" is so overrated.

Nowadays, we put so much emphasis on our looks. We focus so much on the outside that we forget to really focus on what matters. I was inspired by a list that I found online of "Things I Would Rather Be Called Instead Of Pretty," so I made my own version. Here is a list of things that I would rather be than "pretty."

1. Captivating

I want one glance at me to completely steal your breath away.

2. Magnetic

I want people to feel drawn to me. I want something to be different about me that people recognize at first glance.

3. Raw

I want to be real. Vulnerable. Completely, genuinely myself.

4. Intoxicating

..and I want you addicted.

5. Humble

I want to recognize my abilities, but not be boastful or proud.

6. Exemplary

I want to stand out.

7. Loyal

I want to pride myself on sticking out the storm.

8. Fascinating

I want you to be hanging on every word I say.

9. Empathetic

I want to be able to feel your pain, so that I can help you heal.

10. Vivacious

I want to be the life of the party.

11. Reckless

I want to be crazy. Thrilling. Unpredictable. I want to keep you guessing, keep your heart pounding, and your blood rushing.

12. Philanthropic

I want to give.

13. Philosophical

I want to ask the tough questions that get you thinking about the purpose of our beating hearts.

14. Loving

When my name is spoken, I want my tenderness to come to mind.

15. Quaintrelle

I want my passion to ooze out of me.

16. Belesprit

I want to be quick. Witty. Always on my toes.

17. Conscientious

I want to always be thinking of others.

18. Passionate

...and I want people to know what my passions are.

19. Alluring

I want to be a woman who draws people in.

20. Kind

Simply put, I want to be pleasant and kind.

21. Selcouth

Even if you've known me your whole life, I want strange, yet marvelous. Rare and wondrous.

22. Pierian

From the way I move to the way I speak, I want to be poetic.

23. Esoteric

Do not mistake this. I do not want to be misunderstood. But rather I'd like to keep my circle small and close. I don't want to be an average, everyday person.

24. Authentic

I don't want anyone to ever question whether I am being genuine or telling the truth.

25. Novaturient

..about my own life. I never want to settle for good enough. Instead I always want to seek to make a positive change.

26. Observant

I want to take all of life in.

27. Peart

I want to be honestly in good spirits at all times.

28. Romantic

Sure, I want to be a little old school in this sense.

29. Elysian

I want to give you the same feeling that you get in paradise.

30. Curious

And I never want to stop searching for answers.

To My Little Sister, Don't Wish For Time To Move Faster, Soak Up The Stage Of Life You're In

Live in the moment and you will come out having no regrets.


To my best friend,

Time goes by quickly, do not wish it away. Enjoy living in the moment you are in right now because you will never get it back. Stop wishing you were in college already because you have so much to live for right now.

I know all you want to do is get away from home and start over, which is normal because I wanted to do the same thing at your age. But as your older sister, and as someone who has gone through that stage already, I am here to tell you that it is not all rainbows and sunshine 24/7.

With the time you have left in high school, enjoy every second of it because eventually, you will come to miss it.

Graduation is just around the corner for you and it honestly freaks me out how fast time is going. And it only goes faster in college. As kids, all we wanted was to be in high school and be able to drive on our own and once we hit high school, all we want is to be in college. With almost being in college for two years, I can easily say that all I want is to be a kid again. We have been wishing our whole lives away since we can remember. Enjoy today.

I see so much potential in you and I am beyond excited for what the future has in store for you.

Many times, you have been the one to give me advice even though I'm the older sister and this shows how caring and loving you are. Life is going to treat you so well and it already has.

There is one piece of advice I must give to you though. Make sure to thank mom and dad and tell them you love them as often as possible. I know they can get on your nerves and may make you angry at times, but they have given us the best life. You will learn in college just how much they love us and how much they have given up just to make us happy.

You have a good head on your shoulders and I know life is going to turn out to be exactly what you wanted. Just don't wish it all away. Some of my favorite times were when I was a senior in high school.

I'm always looking out for you so don't ever think you are alone in this crazy world. Remember, I am just one phone call away.

I love you so much sis, you got this.
