Changing Up Your Christmas Playlist

New Christmas Songs Aren't All Bad!

Changing Up Your Christmas Playlist

We all love the Holidays, and all of the things that come with this festive season, but there are some things that are not always the best. A major thing that radio stations and tv channels have a problem with is playing the same song over, and over again. Though I cannot freaking wait for Christmas to get here, there are some songs I would rather not hear again until next season. Why don't you listen to some newer songs instead? This list shows an overrated Christmas song and then a song you should listen to instead!

Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms

Instead: Christmas Lights by Coldplay

All I Want For Christmas Is You - Mariah Carey

Instead: Love Is Christmas by Sara Bareilles

The Chipmunk Song - The Chipmunks

Instead: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy - Pentatonix

Rudolph, The Red Nosed Reindeer - Gene Autry

Instead: Snoopy's Christmas (Christmas Bells) - The Royal Guardsmen

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer - Elmo and Patsy

Instead: Winter Wonderland/Here Comes Santa Claus - Snoop Dogg and Anna Kendrick

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee

Instead: Christmas In The Room - Sufjan Stevens

Jingle Bells - Singing Dogs

Instead: Santa Tell Me - Ariana Grande

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - Jimmy Boyd

Instead: Cold December Night - Michael Bublé

Frosty The Snowman - Gene Autry

Instead: Dominick The Donkey - Lou Monte

Santa Baby - Eartha Kitt

Instead: Silver Snow - Derik Nelson

Do You Hear What I Hear - Bing Crosby

Instead: Mary Did You Know? - Pentatonix

Explain your playlist this holiday season, trust me, you'll thank me later!

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.
