Here is a list of what every college student really wants for Christmas this year, even if it really isn't possible.

1. Money to pay for student loans

This might be the most asked for gift this year for any college student. it might not be realistic, but it does sound pretty nice to receive any money to help towards those student loans.

2. Gas Cards

These can come in handy when during break you will be driving everywhere to see your friends and go on your winter break road trips!

3. Gift cards (especially food)

What college student does not love free food?

4. A good 9+ hours of sleep every night

We cannot wait to get this opportunity again.

5. Job opportunities

This might be for all the graduating seniors the Christmas season. I hope this year many job opportunities come your way this Holiday!

6. A therapy animal

An animal in general is always the perfect gift for anybody any Christmas season. However, this year a therapy cat or dog is just the thing any college student needs to get past the years to come.

7. Comfy clothes

Comfy clothes can help any college student feel cozy and warm and relaxed after a long hard semester.

8. Reassurance

Every college student needs a little reassurance that they are on the right track and doing the right thing before continuing on with their college education.

9. Good grades after finals

Isn't this what we are all praying for before we see our final grades posted. This will be on every college student minds as the holidays become nearer. Wouldn't it be great if we could write a Christmas list to all our professors like this?

10. Some actual good food

We have been waiting all semester for actual good-tasting food! Every college student cannot wait to come home to their parent's cooking, this is a must.

11. Coffee

Just coffee.

12. A funny mug

Cute and clever at the same time.

We all deserve our lazy days and what better opportunity than over break.

some Thoughts from an angsty College freshman On a Walk in a time of turmoil

What is this life thing, anyway?

61

My first year of college was a challenging one, both academically and emotionally. I loved it, don't misread me, but it was difficult. I learned a lot about the world, about culture, about love, about other people, and of course, about myself.

I remember one evening in late April, walking back to my dorm from the gym, admiring a gorgeous sunset. The weather was warm, and the orange light of the 6:00 PM sun projected majestically against the stone walls of Hughes Hall. I was deep in thought, and probably listening to some fake-deep music that matched and encouraged my already angsty mood. It was a mood I'd experienced before--it was one that stemmed from heartbreak.

I walked, my body exhausted, my spirit already fractured. Despite my downtrodden mood, I couldn't help but admire the beauty of the scene around me, which contrasted so heavily with the dark, viscous ooze of pain and unhappiness that seeped ever so slowly through my soul. How can there be so much beauty, both man-made and natural, in this world, but so much illness and pain and unhappiness, too?

I gazed past the gates of my prosperous, somewhat pretentious University, to see people struggling, begging for a meal or for money to afford a place to stay the night.

"Why does everything need to be so complex?" I remember inquiring to myself. Why can't we all just coexist and be happy? When did we have to implement all of these rules? Borders are a manmade concept. So is currency, and with it wealth and poverty. We're all human. No human is more important than other humans. This should be simple, right? Everyone should be able to eat. And have access to water, and healthcare, and education, and the other human rights and necessities that they're entitled to.

Don't the innocent deserve to be happy? And I suppose one can argue that everyone can be happy the way things are if they work hard, or whatever. But how can everyone be happy when only a few have access to the tools that make happiness achievable? And I know money doesn't buy happiness. But I'm not even talking about riches for everyone. All I'm saying is that innocent people do not deserve a life of desperation, of hunger and thirst, of poor health, of homelessness.

I would get over my heartbreak, and return to my ordinary, privileged life soon enough. I had a roof over my head, food in my stomach, a wardrobe that was deeper than necessary, all the technology I needed to be successful, and everything else I would ever need. I had the best friends I could ever ask for. I didn't need anything else.

But I still ached for the people who lack those things. The people who try and try to better themselves and their situations, but are stuck. It should be simple. Laws are manmade. They're not the same as morals. Crossing an invisible, imaginary line isn't immoral.

Everyone has only one life. No one can change that. So let everyone enjoy their life. And let yourself enjoy yours. It's simple, really.
