Top 10 Best Movies to Watch During the Holiday Season

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is to watch movies while I decorate the Christmas tree, or bake holiday cookies. Here are some of my favorites!



One of the most quotable movies of the 21st century, Elf is a must-see around Christmas. I don't think a holiday season has passed without me watching it at least twice.

Love Actually 

One of the greatest romantic comedies of all time, Love Actually is my personal favorite movie, no matter the season. It involves nine intertwined stories, all of which examine different levels of human existence, and it is all centered around the holiday season. The clip above is from one of the sweetest scenes in the movie.


Although there have been many different versions of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," made, Scrooge, staring Albert Finney and made in 1970, is, in my opinion, the best one. The clip above is my favorite song from the musical, "Thank You Very Much."

A Christmas Story 


A Christmas Story is a classic Christmas movie. It is one of my favorites to watch with my family while we decorate our Christmas tree.

White Christmas

White Christmas

Although it was released in 1954, White Christmas remains to be an iconic Christmas movie because of its amazing soundtrack and wholesome plot line.

Four Christmases 

Four Christmases is a great movie to watch if you are looking for a comedy. Due to flight cancellations, Brad and Kate have to forgo their usual tropical Christmas vacation, and instead visit all of their crazy families in one day. The clip above is one of my favorite scenes, where Kate and Brad get roped into playing Joseph and Mary in the nativity scene.

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.
