7 Times Lisa Rinna Perfectly Describes Christmas With Your Family

It has come to that time of year when you gather around the dinner table with all of your long lost relatives to discuss your relationship status, GPA, and goals in life. You don’t have a choice, you have to go visit your family, you have to (pretend to) listen to them, and you have to fake laugh at your annoying relative who thinks they’re funny. Some people prepare themselves all year for these grueling couple of days; and for those of you that don’t, I would like to introduce to you my friends, Barefoot Wine, Yuengling, and Fireball. Luckily, we have Lisa Rinna of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"who can perfectly explain (in 7 memes) how we all feel when it comes to visiting with long distance relatives for a couple of days.

1. Anytime you hang out with your family….ever. When they want to go hunting. When they want to go Christmas shopping at an Antique Store. When they choose to play a board game that no one knows the rules to. When they expect you to help cook/clean/set the table (really anything physical).

2. When you get accused of being an alcoholic. Or being a bad student. Or having no goals in life. Or driving all potential marriage partners away. Or not knowing how to spend your money. Or gaining weight. Or being an embarrassment to the family.

3.)When your family wants to do anything besides shopping. Why cook Christmas dinner? Or watch family home videos? Or decorate the Christmas tree? Or look at baby pictures? Or bake cookies? Or play card games? Shopping sounds better, unless it’s taking a nap. Taking a nap definitely trumps shopping.

4. When all the older people get drunk at dinner off one and a half glasses of wine and start dancing and singing. When you try and have a normal conversation with them, but they don’t really respond they just keep dancing and singing, which makes no sense. Or better yet, they try to have you join them in their one-man-musical. Just let them be…

5. When THAT ONE family member finally arrives and you have to pretend to be so excited to finally see them after a whole year of not talking or seeing each other. And they bring you used gifts that you really have no use for or even want, but you fake being thankful and happy to receive the gift. Also, the same family member that tells you it’s okay to be single because they still are...

6. When you’re eating Christmas dinner and that one family member brings up how happy they are that Donald Trump won and how he is going to “Make America Great Again”. Although most of your family voted for Hilary Clinton and hates Donald Trump. Here we go…

7. When you family asks about how you are doing with an emphasis on your weight. “Hi honey, you look beautiful and…healthy.” You also skip most of the dinner portion of Christmas dinner and go right for the dessert. #NoShame

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.
