5 Christmas Gifts That You Can Make For Your S.O

If you are don't have a large budget to spend money on expensive gifts this year for your S.O yet still want something that will put a smile on their face, here are some ideas. You can try to do it if you either have a lot of time or not enough time and some of these are fairly simple to make while others might require a little more time and effort.

Knitted hat and/scarf, etc.


This first item is a very sweet and affordable gift you can make for your S.O. I consider making a scarf the easiest gift to make. If you want to get fancy, you can make a hat. You can even make a sweater if you are really ambitious.

Photo album or Love Book

If you are into scrapbooking or collecting photos, it could be a sweet and cool idea to create a scrape-book of all your adventures together. You can also include cute little stickers or neat backgrounds that will make your photos pop and come alive.

Stitching a bag or a pouch

If you like to sew, embroider and/or stitch, you can take a piece of cloth or a used fabric or even a used fabric bag and create either the bag or decorate a plain bag with nice embroidery. Or you can create a pouch to carry change or small items that your S.O might carry around on a daily basis.

Keychain accessory

This you can get creative with since all you need is an idea of what you want for your keychain. There are plenty of websites that can show you how to make a personalized keychain and maybe you can come up with your own.

Painted boxes

If you want to just make something that doesn't require a lot of time and effort to make this is a good idea for a personalized gift for your loved one. Get a unpainted box of any shape or kind and paint it however you want it to be painted.

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.
