23 Things I Actually Want My Boyfriend To Give Me For Christmas

Instead of a list of things that I won't allow him to get me, I'll make a list of things that I do want instead.

23 Things I Actually Want My Boyfriend To Give Me For Christmas

Instead of making a list of what my boyfriend isn't allowed to give me for Christmas, I decided to make a list for all of the boyfriends that still need some last minute idea help with their gifts. It's not about money and it's not about materials, but rather it's about something much more important—the memories you share together.

1. A ride around town looking at all of the Christmas lights and decorations at night.

2. Willingness to decorate a Christmas tree with me.

3. His full attention for an entire night. No phones, no social media, just the two of us together celebrating each other.

4. A home-cooked meal.

5. Cheeks that burn from smiling so hard at how absolutely amazing he is.

6. A stomach that hurts because he makes me laugh so hard.

7. Bear hugs whenever.

8. A Christmas movie marathon.

9. A gingerbread house decorating competition.

10. A cheesy Christmas photo shoot.

11. A midnight “Merry Christmas" text.

12. A happy heart.

13. Encouragement for when I'm struggling with something.

14. A handwritten letter.

15. The feeling that I am loved, appreciated and cherished simply because I am me.

16. Continued patience with me and all of my weaknesses and faults that come with it.

17. Reminders to breathe when things get stressful over the holiday break.

18. Butterflies in my stomach whenever I see him to remind me of how lucky I am to have him.

19. Yet another one of his big sweatshirts for me to “borrow".

20. Honesty and loyalty.

21. A CD with all of our favorite songs on it.

22. Enthusiasm when I present him with the gift I worked so hard to buy.

23. Whatever he picked out himself that will make him so excited when I open it. I want him to give me something he's proud to give me.

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.

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.
