5 Christmas Presents You Wanted As A Kid But Forgot About

I didn't have a friend in grade school that didn't want these toys.

5 Christmas Presents You Wanted As A Kid But Forgot About

1) The Easy Bake Oven

Seriously, this was every girl's dream. I remember when I got one and I thought I was the next Betty Crocker. I don’t even think the cakes were that good but gosh dang it, I wanted to bake everything.

2) Barbie Jeep

It didn’t run for long but when it did you felt on top of the world with your battery operated pink jeep. Nobody could tell you anything.

3) Barbie Dream House

So I don’t know if anyone has noticed but Barbie’s house was a total party house. If that were a real house I’m pretty sure bangers would be thrown. Ken and his frat friends would be there and it would be like college. Anyways, if you had this house, you were basically the after pre-k spot and all your friends wanted to bring their Barbie’s over there. If you had Barbie’s car to go with it, you were golden.

4) Po-Go Sticks

I’m pretty sure this was one of the most dangerous toys, but who cares right? They were so much fun. I would always have a contest with my friends to see who could go longer. Ahhhhh those were the days.

5) Furby

In my opinion, these are creepy but I sure wanted one when I was younger. I remember this one time I was sleeping and it started talking in the middle of the night. After that, I was done with Furby’s forever. RIP to the creepiest talking toy ever made.

Being older I don’t as get excited for presents. I get really excited to give gifts, spend time with family, take a break from school, and my favorite part of Christmas is watching my sister’s face when she realizes that Santa came. It is the cutest thing ever and I love seeing how happy she gets. I may not get as excited as my sister anymore but I sure do love the holiday season. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and soaks up all the Christmas spirit!

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.
