8 Things Baylor Students Want for Christmas

When you're asked what you want for Christmas as a college student, you begin to think more practically and rationally, so you ask for things such as gift cards, money, clothes, shoes, plane tickets, and a bunch of other things you wouldn't really ask for when you were younger.

This year, I will admit, I am asking for some of those previously mentioned gifts, but is that what we truly want as Baylor students? This year's you should really be asking for these gifts.

1.To win the Russell Athletic Bowl.

Let’s face it, Baylor doesn’t have the greatest of records when it comes to bowl games, but this year we got this! Nothing will make us happier than to see Briles and his team cream the North Carolina Tarheels. Plus, what better place for a bowl game than Orlando!

2. More sections of classes.

Registration can be a nightmare for any college student. You must take a specific class this semester, but you are stuck being 11th on the waitlist for EVERY class. And forget it if it is a business or science course since half the university is in one of those majors. Please Baylor, help us out.

3. Baylor parking to be nicer.

Baylor Parking-- we respect that it is your job to give tickets out, but cut us some slack. Sorry that there are only 20 parking spots at the library and that I backed into the stall in order to avoid killing a stampede of people walking when classes let out. And no, I'm not paying the ticket.

4. No more sprinklers.

It’s raining, sprinklers still going. You need to walk on that sidewalk, how but we use sprinklers. It’s December, sprinklers still going. Seriously though Baylor. We love that our campus is beautiful, but last I checked sidewalks can’t grow by being watered and not having the grass being turned into giant mud puddles would be a nice.

5. No construction.

Finally Fountain Mall is complete and the new business school opened this fall, but you know Baylor was not calling it quits on construction. The school should really start advertising itself as "Baylor University, under construction since 1845."

6. Passing Grades

It's a cliche want, yet the most important. It would be nice to just sleep through finals and magically wake up with straight As -- a person can dream right?

7. Wifi that works.

Nothing ruins my day more than when I'm trying to do my homework (AKA watch Netflix) and AirBear cuts out and ruins my progress.

8. To redo that game against TCU.

That game was just rough, let's redo that.

Sic’em Christmas!

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.
