If you still LOVE Christmas but are in a holiday funk, keep reading. Below is a list of movies to get you HYPED about Christmas. If you are not a fan of Christmas, please leave.

1. Elf

Once you watch Elf, you just know that it's Christmas time. What's better than watching Will Ferrell as an Elf???

2. Polar Express

This movie will always remind you of childhood and the pure happiness of seeing Santa Claus. When watching this movie, make sure to grab a mug of hot cocoa and cozy up by the fire.

3. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

This is a CLASSIC. It is an older movie but so sweet. I bet your parents used to watch this when they were kids also! It is a 10/10 family movie. Watch it during your next family night and then bake some sugar cookies.

4. Grinch

Wow. An all-time favorite! The Grinch is a very relatable character especially as a college student during finals week or just any week basically. The ending is the best part because Christmas always WINS.

5. Charlie Brown Christmas

Another classic because who doesn't love Charlie Brown...?

6. Unaccompanied Minors

Imagine being stuck in an airport around Christmas time with your siblings, friends, or random kids? When I first watched this movie as a kid I thought it sounded like so much fun... but re-watching it, it seems like a horrible situation. This movie is def going to make you laugh, cry, or scream (or all the above).

7. A Christmas Story

Surprise, surprise...another classic. This one is another great one to watch with the family.

8. Home Alone

The thrill of Christmas time with family at the end makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. There are also some great scenes in this movie that are bound to make you laugh.

9. Christmas with the Kranks

Is it really a good Christmas movie without Tim Allen??? Also another classic and probably a movie that your Mom or Dad is down to watch.

I hope looking at this list made you smile and think of the Christmas cheer that the holidays bring. Start watching all these movies before Christmas, or if you already have, watch them again (all of these are def binge-worthy)!!!

Why Spring Time Is The Best Time Of The Year

With the first day of spring right around the corner, here are some reasons why spring is the best time of year!


If you are like me, you know that seasonal depression is real. I'm happiest when the weather is nice and I can explore what nature has to offer. I look to spring every year, because I know there is more to do and the extra hours of daylight makes for additional time to do my favorite things. I love to run outside, travel to nearby parks and outdoor attractions, and just enjoy the beauty and nostalgia of the outdoors.

Spring is a great time to get back in shape. There are a variety of fresh fruits and veggies that you can get at any local farmers market or grocery store to spice up your diet in the spring. Also, the gym can be monotonous after a long winter, so the start of spring brings a breath of fresh air for many outdoor fitness activities. Go for a walk or run done local trails or paths, do yoga outside, or even go go biking, hiking, or kayaking. The spring offers so many cool opportunities to become healthier.

Spring always reminds me of Easter time and Easter always makes me think of quality time spent with friends and family. Plus, I always think of baby animals and flowers blooming, two things that bring everyone joy. If you get a chance you have to visit the cherry blossom trees in Washington D.C., it is such a beautiful site. Furthermore, one of my favorite things is that first really sunny, warm day in the spring when you can open all the windows in your house and savor the start of spring.

The springtime also means that summer break is closer. After a long 8 or 9 months of school, the thought of a nice 3 month break is refreshing. Start planning your summer job, internship, or whatever you want to get into this summer, to give you some motivation to finish the semester strong.

Spring has so much to offer so prepare for the rainy days of April and the sunny days, full of flowers in May, and everything in between!
