When it's cool to celebrate Christmas

Christmas TIme All The TIme

For those of you who say that Christmas time is after Thanksgiving, please rethink some of your life choices. (I promise that I am not some throwing shade, love y'all bunches, promise!) Yes, that may be when they start playing Christmas music on the radio, but that doesn't mean that's when the holiday cheer has to begin. It's like they say in one of the greatest movies ever starring Will Ferrell, Elf...

As summer begins to come to a close and school starts back, some people get into kind of a funk. And, when I am not talking about a good kind of funk (if that is even a thing). They get stressed out from extracurricular activities or stressed school in general, and just need something to pick them up. What other way to cheer up then with some Mariah Carey or Bing Crosby and a Christmas tree or two? Or better yet, watch a Christmas movie with some hot chocolate, the whole 9 yards. You seriously have no limitations.

Now, I know what you're thinking, but let's not jump to conclusions, alright. Obviously we all get out of school on the last Thursday of November for a reason. 1.) to watch a parade and a football game, and 2.) to stuff our faces with no regrets (God bless it). Yes, Thanksgiving is super important. It is a necessity for us to set aside differences to come together, give thanks, and eat until the buttons fly off our pants. But ponder this for a moment. On Thanksgiving, they throw a huge Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City (this is not news to you), but the theme is always, what? Christmas. They always end the parade with Santa who has to do with? Again, Christmas. Fact of the matter being, Thanksgiving is part of the Christmas season. Why am I not allowed to celebrate Christmas while also giving thanks and eating with my relatives? That's just messed up and you all know it.

September through about January are probably the most appropriate times, in my opinion, to start celebrating Christmas. I'm talking music blasting, sweater wearing, tree decorating, gift giving, junk food eating celebrating. So, go ahead, be that person who goes Christmas shopping in October, be the person who sets out Christmas lights as soon as the leaves start changing colors, blast "All I Want for Christmas Is You" from your car radio. You are a Christmas fanatic just like many others like you (including myself). Own that tacky Christmas sweater. You deserve it. If Christmas time is what makes you happy, then let's start celebrating. Happy Holidays, everyone and Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal.

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.

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.
