There are SO many Christmas albums out there, so I know it can be hard to pick one to listen to. Here are some of my favorite Christmas albums from different genres!

1. Retro Christmas Music: Phil Spector's "A Christmas Gift For You"

The upbeat tempos and happy harmonies on this album bring a 60's vibe to its listeners, and can't help but get you excited for the holiday season. Even the album cover feels retro.

My favorite: I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

2. Alternative Christmas Music: Relient K's "Let it Snow Baby... Let it Reindeer"

The heavy guitars give the traditional Christmas songs on this album a fun twist. They also have some great original songs.

My favorite: Sleigh Ride

3. Pop Christmas Music: Kelly Clarkson's "Wrapped in Red"

On this album, Clarkson uses her amazing voice to give us an album that not only holds the sound of traditional Christmas albums, but also with a different sound more unique to her own style.

My favorite: Winter Dreams (Brandon's Song)

4. Timeless Christmas Music: Michael Bublé's "Michael Bublé Christmas"

Most of his songs on this album stay traditional, but with his voice you don't really need to do much to make an amazing Christmas album. Regardless of whatever type of Christmas music you want to listen to, this album will never disappoint in preparing you for the holiday season.

My favorite: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

5. Musical Theater Christmas Music: Lea Michele's "Christmas in the City"

Before this album came out, I was a little worried that it would be like listening to an unreleased Glee Christmas soundtrack. However, I was pleasantly surprised that Michele was able to use her background in musical theater to make this album completely her own!

My favorite: Silver Bells

6. Movie Soundtrack Music: The Polar Express

Not only is this a great Christmas movie, but the music is amazing as well!

My favorite: Believe

7. A Mix of Everything: Glee's Season 2 Christmas Album

The one thing I do miss about Glee is the annual Christmas album featuring a bunch of Christmas music. Out of all of their Christmas albums, this one is my favorite.

My favorite: Last Christmas

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.
