Christmas is somehow right around the corner.

How is this possible? I truly don't know. But, it's true nonetheless. Maximize your Christmas spirit by doing these little things to feel as Christmasy as possible before the dreaded December 26th! (Even though this time next year we're totally gonna feel like Christmas 2017 was JUST here. Oh well)

1. Listen to Christmas music

In your car, when you walk to class even as you study. Literally anywhere!

2. Peppermint everything

Do yourself a favor right now. Get up, and go get a peppermint mocha from Starbucks. Don't stop there though! Peppermint tea, candy canes, cookies, whatever. Even if you don't really like peppermint, for some reason it tastes good from November-December. This is a fact. Or, burn some peppermint candles or use peppermint hand soap.

3. Treat Yourself

Go get some slice 'n bake cookies. Make a gingerbread house. Have some hot chocolate. Go get your favorite Christmas treat!

4. Decorate your place

Twinkly lights make everything better. Put mistletoe in your door, or a wreath outside! Don't be afraid to be THAT person who has their tree out weeks before anyone else. It's the most wonderful time of the year, after all!

5. Flannel pajamas go a long way

Who cares if its 70 degrees every other day? The best way to forget it's hot is to dress like it's cold!!! (lol maybe not) but go get a tacky Christmas sweater and cute fuzzy pajamas! You'll feel like a little kid again!

6. Watch Christmas movies

Alone or with your best friends, curl up and watch a fun holiday movie. It'll feel like it's Christmas day. (this works even if you watch a Christmas movie in like June)

7. Give someone a gift

This is truly the best way to get into the Christmas spirit. The older you get, the more you realize it's not just a cliche saying-- giving is better than receiving.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
