The Best Things About Thanksgiving As Told By "Friends"

1. Spending time with those you love

As a college student, by the time Thanksgiving rolls around, we've already been away from home for what feels like forever. It is so refreshing to spend time with your loved ones and feel their warm embraces.

2. Weather

Cool enough to wear a cozy sweater and wrap yourself in a blanket, but not cold enough that you're miserable. Or, you could be like Joey and layer up.


The mashed potatoes, the stuffing, the turkey, the corn, the family recipes... I could go on, but I'm already drooling on the keyboard.Time to borrow someone's maternity pants so i can use them as "Thanksgiving pants".

4. Leftovers

The best kind of leftovers to have are Thanksgiving leftovers because you can do so much with them. Sandwiches, snacks, and desserts. over the years, you even create recipes with those leftovers... like Monica soaking bread in gravy to create the "moistmaker".

5. Those special "Thanksgiving foods"

There are some foods that we only eat at Thanksgiving. Why? Who knows. Stuffing is 10/10 but I still only get to enjoy it once a year. And green bean casserole is delicious, but I've never had it any other day of the year. Why can we only cook an entire turkey once a year?

6. The Thanksgiving coma

On Thanksgiving, we can't help but stuff our faces with the food our family worked so hard to prepare for us. But what does that mean? Eating too much, unbuttoning our pants, and eating some more. The result: Thanksgiving coma. The treatment: a nice, long, nap.

7. Football

There's always an important football game on. And what better way to bond with your family than screaming at the TV?

8. Making your love for one another known

It's the beginning of the holiday season and everyone starts to cheer up just a little. Plus it's the perfect time to share with your friends and family why you're thankful for them.

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.

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.
