All I Want This Holiday Season Is You
Start writing a post

The holiday season is the hub of all gift giving. A new Ipad, laptop, hairbrush, gloves, you name it, there is no better thing to do around this time of year. Or perhaps you might want to give a little something back to a local charity or a cause you care about like gifts for the homeless. Your time can't be better spent than giving to those who actually need the support or gifts they can't afford for their children. As children we grew up getting so many different types of gifts from our families, whether it be a dollar bill or a new car. But sometimes the most valuable gift is to spend the holidays with someone you love.

Recall that first moment you look into that person's eyes after not seeing that person for a long time.

It is a long, endearing look. Whether it be your boyfriend, girlfriend, dad, mom, sister or brother, you have been waiting for that moment to see them.

And spending every moment with them is so worth it.

You look forward to the memories you will develop with this person. It doesn't matter if it is just a few hours, days or weeks. Any memory you can build with this person is worth it.

Even the little moments count.

Going to the super market: that counts as a moment. Doing laundry together: that counts as well.

I don't need anything wrapped up in a bow.

If you just give me the bow (because I like bows) and you that will be just perfect.

I don't need any fancy gift cards to places I like.

While those gift cards will save me a lot of money later on, I want those moments to be shared at Peets Coffee or in Forever 21 (for three hours) to be shared with you.

It doesn't cost a penny to say "don't get me anything this holiday season."

Just tell this person you just want to go on a nice walk with them or eat dinner together and talk for a few hours afterwards.

I don't need any physical bought item to make me happy.

As long as I have you, my time is well spent.

So don't go out looking for gifts. Write a nice card, take time to give a long endearing phone call, anything you can do will count to show the person you care about that you genuinely care.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
