7 Christmas Albums You Need To Listen To This Year

Based on the Starbucks cups I'm seeing around town, it's officially Christmas time. It's time for peppermint mochas and beanies and snow everywhere (if you live in a place where it snows). If you're like me, you probably have holiday music on repeat this time of year and listen to it wherever you are. Because nothing makes you happier than songs about winter wonderlands, right?

If you need some new music for this holiday season, check out these suggestions!

1. "Christmas" by Michael Buble

I think I could listen to this album on repeat for the rest of my life and never get tired of it. His voice is the perfect thing on a cold December night (see what I did there?).

2. "That's Christmas to Me" by Pentatonix

This is the second Christmas album from Pentatonix, and it's my favorite. The song selection on this album is great, and their voices are truly one of a kind. Pentatonix is not a band to sleep on, trust me.

3. "Boogie Woogie Christmas" by the Brian Setzer Orchestra

Who doesn't want to jazz it up during the holidays? I have been listening to this album since I was a kid, and I've even skated to a few songs. Brian Setzer has an amazing style that lends itself well to spicing up your Christmas playlist.

4. "The Polar Express" Soundtrack

Honestly, "Believe" gives me so many feels during the holidays. I love this movie, and the soundtrack is just as good, if not better.

5. "A Charlie Brown Christmas" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio

A classic, of course, and a necessity. I love listening to this album when I'm decorating the house, or just reading a good book with some coffee. You have to listen to this at least twice or the ghost of Charles Schultz will haunt you all season long.

6. "Merry Christmas" by Mariah Carey

Another must-have for this Christmas. Everyone loves Mariah, and this album just makes you feel happy.

7. "Elvis' Christmas Album" by Elvis Presley

There are so many classics on this album that have to be listened to at least once a year. "Blue Christmas" is still one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs.

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.
