Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. The best part about Christmas is how everyone has so many different traditions.

Helping mom wrap my siblings' gifts

Every year, I get to help wrap my siblings' gifts before we put them under the tree. This gets things done faster for mom, but we still don't get to see our presents.

Christmas Day

Every year on Christmas, my family gets up at 5 am to start unwrapping gifts. We've gotten up this early for as long as I can remember so we can unwrap the gifts, play with them for a bit, and then get ready to go!

Christmas breakfast

Every Christmas morning is the same. After getting up at 5 am and getting ready, we go to my Mamaw's house for breakfast. We usually have a whole spread of biscuits, gravy, bacon, and eggs. Then, we get more presents!

At my Mamaw's house every year we get family pictures. They're always my favorite! This one is from 2014!

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.

So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
