Being The Single Friend This Holiday Sesaon

As told by "Parks and Rec"

Being The Single Friend This Holiday Sesaon

The single friend is a major role of the friend group. It has its ups and downs, but takes on a whole new role as the holidays approach (mostly the role of photographer.) As we find ourselves third wheeling in an assortment of holiday couple activities, the all-star crew of "Parks and Rec" explains the struggle of being the single friend this holiday season.

Your friends won't stop harassing you about finding a man to spend the holidays with.

I'm already in a committed relationship with Netflix, is that not enough for you people?

Your only other single friend decides to get a boyfriend.

There's nothing lonelier than having no one to be lonely with.

So you're now forced to fifth wheel on a trip to New York City because they insist you come do things clearly meant for couples with them.

Because ice skating behind you guys while you held hands wasn't enough, please take me to the tree, the gathering place of all couples.

And then they ask you to take their picture kissing in front of the tree.

At least you'll get a shout out on Instagram for the picture credit.

Your one friend won't stop talking about all the gifts her boyfriend bought her.

Well, my mom got me all four "Hunger Games" movies on DVD, so who's the real winner here?

You watch too many rom-com Christmas movies, and your friends catch you in a moment of weakness.

What can I say, "It's a Wonderful Life" gets me every time.

Then when they try to console you, you kindly remind them...

Until my life turns into a Nicholas Sparks movie, this will hold true.

Your friends' boyfriends complain about all the couple things their girlfriends have made them do this season.

And I'm silently judging you for dressing up as an elf with her to that Christmas themed party last week.

At a New Year's Eve party and it seems like you're going to be the only one without a midnight kiss.

As Drake once said, "you my right hand, you my go-to."

Then, you accidentally drunk text your ex telling him it will be another good year with out him in your life.

Followed by a sincerely apologetic morning text.

But, in the end, you know that you don't need a man to have a good time this holiday season, friends and family are more than enough company.

And, hey, there's always next year.

It's time to do you this holiday season. And the best part about having friends with boyfriends is, there's always someone to carry you home.

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.
