The 25 Days Of Christmas Jams
Ryan Loughlin

I've been in the Christmas spirit for MONTHS and now that Thanksgiving has passed it's time to crank those jams. I just like the warm and cozy feeling Christmas gives me and getting to see all the Christmas decor. I also love the first snowfall because there's something just so magical about it. Can you tell that I also watch Hallmark movies? *Que the eyerolls*

And of course, I just had to talk about the ultimate Christmas Jams. I've had my Spotify playlist ready to go since last Christmas. So I give you 25 Christmas songs to jam out to, one each day leading up to Christmas.

1. "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Rufus Wainwright and Sharon Van Etten

I absolutely adore this cover. It's my number one favorite.

2. "All I Want For Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey

Honestly, who doesn't have this on their playlist? This is such a bop for the holidays.

3. "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by Michael Bublé

Michael Bublé's voice is just so smooth. I LOVE IT.

5. "Last Christmas" by Wham!

*sings this to my Ansel Elgort poster acting like we had a relationship*

6. "Hot Chocolate" by Tom Hanks

I remember in kindergarten when I came to school and they made the hallway look like the Polar express aka just setting chairs up along the walls and blasted this song while handed out cups of hot chocolate.

7. "That's Christmas to Me" by Pentatonix

Absolutely love their covers and nothing beats a-cappella.

8. "One More Sleep" by Leona Lewis

This is such a bop. I'm addicted to the song.

9. "Blue Christmas" by Elvis Presley

Elvis' smooth yet rock n' roll voice is just so beautiful.

10. "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree" by Brenda Lee

This song reminds me of the scene from Home Alone where Kevin was putting broken ornaments around the tree. Such a diabolical kid.

11. "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" by Frank Sinatra

I will Frank Sinatra, I will.

P.S. I absolutely adore Frank Sinatra so much.

12. "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" by Perry Como, The Fontana Sisters, Mitchell Aryes & His Orchestra

I always bust this jam out whenever it snows because snow makes Christmas even more festive. And it for some weird reason reminds me of walking into the Macy's in downtown Chicago. Not sure why, it just does.

13. "Jingle Bell Rock" by Bobby Helms

This also reminds me of Home Alone.

P.S. Not sure my memory is right about this being used in the movie.

14. "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" by Andy Williams

Dang right it's the most wonderful time of the year Andy Williams.

15. "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" by Burl Ives

The only song that mattered to me when I was a child. And the only one that I could easily remember the lyrics too.

16. "Sleigh Ride" by Andy Williams

I just love the bells being used in the background.

17. "A Holly Jolly Christmas" by Burl Ives

It's always a holly jolly Christmas when you are obsessed with everything Christmas related.

18. "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby, Ken Darby Singers, John Scott Trader & His Orchestra

I've been dreaming of a White Christmas for the past couple years now and it snows a week before but most of it ends up melting before Christmas day. *sad sigh*

19. "Run Rudolph Run" by Chuck Berry

All I can imagine in Rudolph go around in circles.

20. "The Christmas Song" by Brett Eldredge

Brett Eldredge is country but his voice and Christmas music equals a voice made for jazz.

21. "Deck The Hall" by Nat King Cole

*Sings loud throughout while watching my mom set Christmas up instead of helping her*

22. "Santa Baby" by Ariana Grande

As you can tell, I love pop Christmas covers because they are so lively.

23. "Jingle Bells" by Frank Sinatra

24. "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" by John Denver


25. "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town" by Mariah Carey

How could I forget this great song about Saint Nick?

As you countdown to Christmas just remember "The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear" - Buddy the Elf.

Get your Christmas on folks.

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.
