25 Thoughts I Have Had While on Winter Break

It's a hard life.

25 Thoughts I Have Had While on Winter Break
The Leaf Chronicle

When you're on winter break, a million random thoughts can run through your head. Whether you're stuck in a dorm, at home, or at work, your mind can wander off like a bear into the woods, because on winter break, there's nothing to do. You are bored most of the time, and you're just sitting there on your phone, laughing at memes, which there is no shame in because I am pretty sure that everyone does it. Here are some of the zillions of thoughts I have had since winter break has started.

1. I wonder what my college family is doing.

2. What if dogs spoke whatever language their owners did?

3. How did I ever survive in this small town?

4. I wonder what everyone got for Christmas.

5. For once, I can not find anything interesting on Netflix.

6. Or Hulu.

7. Or YouTube.

8. Oh my gosh, I know who will love this meme. *tags 15 people on Facebook*

9. What to do, what to do.

10. Maybe I can find something to read.

11. *finishes book in a couple of hours* Okay, now what?

12. Okay, maybe I should start looking at what I need for next semester.

13. Who's got 'buy three books for one class' money?

14. Okay, let's see what *insert name* is up to. Okay, they're busy, never mind.

15. Time for another book.

16. Let's see if there's any Pokemon nearby. Okay, there isn't.

17. What do dogs think about?

18. Maybe I should go for a drive.

19. *drives around for 15 minutes* Okay, I've seen that road before. And that man.

20. *comes home* What's for dinner?

21. Have I eaten today? Oh my gosh, I forgot to eat.


23. Yum, food.

24. All is well; I am fed.

25. What to do, what to do.

So, all in all, you can tell my winter break is pretty exciting. There's food, nothing to do, and books. But overall, it is a nice break from the stress of school.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
