A Christmas Song For Every Situation This December

Don't worry, I got you.

There are lots of joys that come with the Christmas season. With looking at all the pretty light displays, decorating a tree, baking cookies, I mean the list could go on for a while. But one of the biggest joys, at least for me, is Christmas music. The main reason for this is that there is a Christmas song for every single mood you could possibly be in this holiday season.

Is seasonal depression hitting a little too hard? Phoebe Bridgers wrote "If We Make it Through December" just for you! And me, that is my go-to Christmas sad song, and it is honestly a little embarrassing. Did your boyfriend dump you on your front porch while the light-up snowman decoration was awkwardly sitting beside you? Do a dramatic performance of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" around your bedroom - that snowman decoration is cheering you on from outside! Are you missing the joy that you used to experience when you were a child opening gifts on Christmas morning? Go for a drive and listen to "Christmas Lights" by Coldplay! That song will bring out emotions in you that you didn't even know you could feel (as will any Coldplay song, let's be honest)! Need to pregame the family Christmas party? Turn on "Jingle Bell Rock" - no better way to soundtrack your poor choices than some jingle bells chiming! Helping your Grandma cook her famous holiday dessert? The one that the whole family either loves or PRETENDS to love? ANY Christmas song by Frank Sinatra will do the trick. Forget about your grandpa. Frank will always have a piece of your Grandma's heart.

To sum it all up, there will always be a Christmas song there for you, even when your family, or your Jake Gyllenhaal-esque boyfriend isn't it. Take comfort in this season! And please, belt "All I Want for Christmas is You" at least one time in your car, for me.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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.
