Hi. My name is Shalise, and I may be a little obsessed with Christmas music. I mean, how could I not be? I don't understand how some people don't enjoy it that much. You can't listen to a Christmas song and NOT immediately be put in a holly jolly state of mind. I love the classic holiday songs by the greats (Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, etc.). However, there are some other songs and artists out there that deserve attention too! Let me help spice up your Christmas playlist with these songs you may not have heard of before!

1. "Blue Christmas" 

If you loved hearing Zooey Deschanel sing "Baby It's Cold Outside" in "Elf," you'll love this!

2. "​Candy Cane Lane" by Sia 

Sia puts a fun twist on Christmas with this song.

3. "Jingle Bells" by Lauren Daigle 

Lauren Daigle jazzes up Christmas with this classic.

4. "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" by Jack Johnson 

Jack Johnson's version of this holiday go-to is somewhat soothing, yet fun!

5. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by Us the Duo

Need I say anything? It's Us the Duo!

6. "Fa La La" (acappella) by Justin Bieber feat. Boyz II Men 

This song is so cute! The melodies--amazing.

7. "8 Days of Christmas" by Destiny's Child 

This song is just super fun and gives you that early 2000s feel!

8. "Jingle Bells?" by Barbra Streisand 

This song is a bit odd, I'm not gonna lie. You'll either love it or hate it, but it's just super fun and exciting!

9. "Feliz Navidad" by Jess and Gabriel

Jess and Gabriel give a chill vibe to this popular song.

10. "Wrap Me Up in Your Love" by John Legend 

The world needed John Legend to sing holiday songs; this is a good one!

11. "O Come, All Ye Faithful" by Pentatonix 

This is a classic song, but Pentatonix found a way to make it even better!

I hope these songs get you in the best holiday mood! These songs are fun and different, so make sure you give them a chance.

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.

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.

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.
