Christmas Love: A Heartfelt Letter to My Boyfriend

You are my favorite gift.

Dear Boyfriend,

Merry Christmas! Spending another Christmas with you is enough of a gift for me. This is the time for me to tell you how grateful I am for you, which I often forget it in the light of Christmas chaos.

Who would have imagined that when we met that we would mean so much to each other now. You have nudged your way into my anxious and guarded heart in the smoothest of fashions. There is no one that I would rather spend the holidays with, no one I would rather drag to the mall for holiday shopping, and no one I would rather struggle with when trying to find the "perfect" present that tells you how much I love you. I can not wait to engulf ourselves into winter activities and there is no one I would rather have pull me around on ice skates. I am taking this time to thank you for all you have done for me in 2015... you surely deserve it.

Thank you for dealing with my anxious personality.

I know it can't be easy dealing with someone who makes up unlikely scenarios in their head or cries at the slightest moment of being overwhelmed. You have been such a comfort to me, more than you could ever imagine. You constantly surprise me about how loving and caring you are.

Thank you for pumping my gas.

Thank you for always doing the little things for me, pumping my gas being a personal favorite. Whether it's bringing me Starbucks on a cold morning or scratching my head to sleep, you always go out of your way to make me happy.

Thank you for being apart of my family.

Although I think my family may possibly like you more, you recognize how important my family is to me and have been in no way short of showing them love. You are not just a part of my life, but theirs as well and that makes them incredibly happy.

Thank you for sharing your closet with me.

Well, I guess I really mean letting my throw all my clothes over your floor and leaving shoes in your closet for months at a time. Even though you already warned me that I can't do that when we move in together.

Thank you for taking care of me when I am sick.

Whether it is surgery or a case of the sniffles you are the first to surprise me with soup, a box of tissues, and some well-needed cuddles. It takes an extra special person to kiss me, well aware that you could get sick.

Thank you for being an overall great person.

I have never been more impressed with someone who is constantly concerned about others and their well-being. You are more than willing to put others before yourself and I admire and respect you for that. You constantly impress me and there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for you.

With more love than you could ever imagine,

Me.

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.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
