It's hard to adjust to home life after being at school for so long. Some people will settle into their old routines and their parents' home cooking as if they never left. Others will continue staying up until 3 a.m. and will eat junk from the nearest convenience store. Either way, there are a few things that all college students do while they are home for winter break.

1. Sleep!

2. Lounge around in pajamas and not shower for at least a day.

3. Half-unpack their clothes so they'll be living out of their dresser and duffel bag for the next month.

4. Exchange Christmas presents with friends from high school.

5. Go to the movies.

6. Go back to work at the job they had in high school.

7. Revel in the fact that they have a full fridge at home, but lament the idea that they have to make their own food.

8. Get all of their doctor appointments out of the way until summer vacation.

9. Text their roommates constantly to tell them how much they miss them.

10. Travel to see family.

11. Fight their siblings for the shower/bathroom.

12. Apply for jobs or internships.

13. Find something new to watch on Netflix and blaze through it in three days.

14. Watch only the Christmas episodes of their favorite shows.

15. Sit on the couch and watch Christmas movies for 24 hours.

16. Wish for snow to come.

17. Count down the days until they go back to their campus.

How have you spent your time home so far?

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.

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.

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.
