It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! Christmas is coming.

College students are finishing up finals and high schoolers are getting ready for midterms so that everyone can be home together over the holidays. There’s so much to look forward to during this magical time; even the grumpiest grinch can find something to smile about.

1. No school

I don’t think I have to be the one to tell you what a relief it is when you don’t have to wake up for class. You don’t have to get dressed, and you can stay in fuzzy pajama pants all day. Not only that but every two AM night you have over break is of your own choosing (aka, not one where you’re frantically doing homework that’s due the next morning). There’s time to relax and do things that you wouldn’t normally have time for, like reading a book for your own enjoyment. I know-- it's crazy.

2. Christmas cookies

If your family is anything like mine, Christmas time brings out the best food ON THE PLANET. The house is filled with the delicious smell of spices and cookies baking.

3. Christmas Decorations

It’s always nice to drive down the street at night and see every house lit up cheerfully to celebrate the holiday. Christmas lights are magical no matter how old you are, and they never fail to add some extra holiday joy.


Whether you’re home from high school, college, or you’re just trying to relax before you go back to work, Christmas break is a fantastic time to catch up on your rest. Just try not to think about when it’s over and you have to struggle to regulate your sleep schedule again.

5. New Year's Eve

Although it doesn’t specifically relate to Christmas, New Year’s Eve is always one of my favorite parts of Christmas break. Staying up late to watch the countdown and the ball drop is such a big moment, and laughing in the New Year with the people you love is the perfect way to start a year filled with possibilities.

6. Being with family

The most important part of the holidays is being with your family. Loving others and being loved is the greatest gift of all. Whether you’re caught up in mistletoe or being with friends, don’t forget to spend time with the people who love you the most. Even if they're goofier than you thought humanly possible, you'll make memories that last forever.

Christmas is only days away. Have a happy, safe, healthy holiday that’s filled with love and joy! Throw your worries out the window, and enjoy the magic that is the Christmas season.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
