7 Things College Kids Want For Christmas This Year

7 Things College Kids Want For Christmas This Year

Eight if you count one of those hoverboard things.


Simply stated, it's the worst time of the year to be a college student.

We're drowning under the crippling weight of countless exams, papers, presentations, and assignments. Ads for holiday shopping serve as a constant and relentless reminder of our incessant debt. And worst of all, we're too busy to watch "25 Days of Christmas" every night.

The only free time us coeds have is spent sleeping and lying to our Instagram followers that we're having an awesome start to the holiday season. So clearly we don't have time to make a wish list. The year is 2015, and it's finally time to take a stand and put an end to the muscle cramps from all the fake smiles that come along with opening up gifts we don't want or need.

So here's a list to follow if you need help getting your favorite college student exactly what he/she wants this holiday season.

1. A nap

And not a sissy 15-minute power nap. Like a four hour, full sleep cycle, dream-filled nap.

2. Money

We're talking checks. Gift cards. Cold, hard cash. We don't discriminate.

3. More Data

An absolute necessity.

4. A home-cooked meal

Because at this point, the mere mention of dining hall chicken or cold cereal makes us throw up a little bit in the back of our throats.

5. A full tank of gas

And maybe a car wash, too?

6. Another nap

And it still won't be enough sleep.

7. Justin Bieber tickets

Because, hello, who doesn't want that?

Join the movement—it's time to put a stop to business card holders and socks under the tree. Get your favorite student something they'll really cherish this year.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
