Christmas Break Bucket List

Here are all the best traditions I plan on completing this year!

Christmas Break Bucket List

Christmas break is almost here! I am so incredibly excited to get all of these finals done so that I can enjoy being with family and friends! I love making lists, so here is my list of Christmas activities I hope to accomplish before going back to school in January.

 1.     Cookies (Obviously)

I think this is a pretty common tradition, but in my family we love to do home-made ginger bread houses! Delicious and so fun!

2. Day Trip

My best friends and I love taking day trips all around North Carolina. Whether it is Boone, Asheville, or Winston-Salem, we have loads of fun!

3. Hot Cocoa Movie Night

Get dressed up into your favorite Christmas pajamas and grab your best friends. With a cup of cocoa in hand, que up Disney + and you will be in holiday heaven.

4. Volunteer

'Tis the season of giving, so why not volunteer at a local soup kitchen or buy gifts for children less fortunate!

5. Dance To Christmas Songs


My favorite is Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree!

6.  Drive Around For The Sole Purpose Of Listening to Christmas Music


I also love to drive through neighborhoods to look at the lights!

7. Gift Wrapping Party

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is finding cool ways to wrap up gifts on Pinterest! There are so many ways to make the gifts look so cute! It also adds to the total Christmas ambiance sitting under the tree.

8. Crafts


Every year my mom has had a craft day at my house. Whether we made wreaths, ornaments, yummy recipes, or little sock snowmen, it is always a blast!

Christmas is such a joyous time of year, so hug your loved ones and enjoy this time with your people!

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.
