10 Holiday Date Ideas That Are Bound To Make You Swoon

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

I don't know what it is about the holiday season but I always want to plan elaborate dates with a central holiday theme. My boyfriend is already annoyed by how much I have discussed the holiday season and how much I have planned for us to do over winter break. These aren't romantically exclusive so grab your significant other or a group of friends and be prepared to be in the holiday spirit!

Drive around and look at lights

Get in your car, blast some Christmas tunes! A lot of towns have neighborhoods that are dedicated light shows, find one! This a cute, free (excluding gas, sorry) way to spend time with those you love and get to feeling festive!

Bake cookies

I am always in charge of cookie making and I have a super specific process when it comes to cookies. For other more sane people, make a ton of batches of cookies while a Christmas movie or some music is playing in the background. They also make some good gifts, so its a win-win!

Holiday Movie Marathon

Fuzzy blankets, hot chocolate, Frosty the Snowman playing on the tv.... need I say more?

Gift Shopping

Another dual purpose date idea. Get your shopping done and hang out with your boo/pals!

Ice Skating

This one is for the more coordinated of people. Bundle up and wobble around on the ice for a few hours. Most rinks have hot chocolate or some other drinks and snacks so if you start to get tired you can take it easy.


I have already had my tree up for about two weeks now, but decorating a tree and your living space with holiday decorations will make you feel more at home and will let you spend some bonding time with your SO.


Tis the season of giving! We love good philanthropic festive date!

Ugly Sweater Thrift Shopping

I am obsessed with ugly holiday sweaters, is that just me?

Attend a holiday event

Party, get together, kickback, whatever you want to do! Holiday functions are so much fun so drag him/her along!

Take holiday pictures together

Maybe even make a holiday card!

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.
