It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year For College Students

Christmas Break As Told By Fandom Gifs
Simon FitzGerald

It is finally that glorious time of year for college students where finals are underway and the semester is closing. So many sleepless nights spent slumped over a desk typing up papers and studying things you swore you knew about just a few moments ago but turns out you were wrong. So many students schlepping to the exam room in sweats, "just woke up" hair, under caffeinated bodies, and a "kill me or I kill you" attitude. There is one lingering hope for all of us students, the one thought that keeps us going regardless of how much we want to give up and sleep on the sidewalk, the light at the end of the tunnel: Christmas Break. And when finally step into that first free minute of at most a month of freedom, we go through stages with this break.

So, essentially here are some fandoms that showcase how we go through the blessed-ed time of Christmas break because this is the only way to show how I feel and I'm sure most of you all can relate.

That Last Day

That sweet and wonderful moment when you are finally able to turn in that last final paper or test. You are unsure of what to do with yourself but you sure as heck feel some kind of strong emotion when walking away from that campus. Maybe even a little tear trickles down your cheek while letting out a heavy sigh of relief. You have done it friend, you have defeated the semester at last.

The Next Day

And then you wake up the next day. You realize that you don't have to go to class for a long stretch of time and don't have to deal with lectures, notes, annoying classmates, and alarms. FAM, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAKE UP TO AN ALARM. Dance like the pure sunshine that you are and revel in this knowledge.

Speaking of no alarms, now you have all this extra time to catch up on your sleep. Of course you may still have to go to work or catch up with friends and family you may have accidentally neglected because of your studies. But regardless, you have so many zzz's to catch and can't be bothered to do much else except for maybe...


Dude, you consume so much food that it almost becomes a miracle that your stomach doesn't bust open. Somehow you are able to eat your family out of the house in food and that is totally okay. You deserve all those extra calories because hey, you burned so much energy studying and crying over your grades.

Checking Grades

Eventually though, you have to check your grades. What an unnerving time that a few simple clicks creates just to see if all your hard work paid off. And then you see them and you are down right impressed with what you made. Maybe it isn't what you expected but it could have been worse. Either way, take the time to be smug and make the vow that you'll do just as great next semester -or better.

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"

Well, then probably the best part of the whole break hits. CHRISTMAS IS HERE. Slap on your Santa hat and ugly sweater because the most wonderful time of year is here. All thoughts of school and grades run from your mind and you become a holly jolly mess who is super pumped to open up that package of socks.

The End of Break

And then the holidays are over and now comes the thought that this break is quickly coming to a close. You're reminded that now you'll have to go back to school in a couple of weeks and be responsible for your knowledge gain once again. You don't know how to handle this "shook" feeling so you just become a sarcastic mess because it is the only way you know how to avoid the inevitable.

A Happy Reminder

That's okay though, because you made it in tact through one half of your academic year! You were awarded with a much deserved break; caught up on sleep, caloric intake rose, sanity was regained, and you got so many nifty sweaters and socks. You did it friend and you can do it again!

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.

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.
