Finally free of finals, we're able to hunker down and enjoy the days leading up to the most wonderful time of the year.

If Today's College Kids Rewrote 'The 12 Days Of Christmas,' They'd Send...

There are the classic 12 days of Christmas that we all get stuck in our head but there is also the 12 days of a college student's Christmas. Some hold fear and some hold warmth and relief. After Thanksgiving, things can start off scary and can even hit a few road-bumps but, eventually, we reach the Golden Star of Christmas break!!!

So, on the twelfth day of Christmas, my college sent to me...

12 Christmas Movies

From the classics of White Christmas and It's A Wonderful Life to the newer funny ones such as Elf and The Santa Claus series. It is easy enough to find 12 Christmas Movies to distract you from your responsibilities.

11 Crazy Family Members

Holidays bring all of those crazy relatives together for the big group hugs and the exciting dinner conversations. Prepare yourself for all those relationship questions from the relatives.

10 Secret Santas

You would think having secret santas would lower the Christmas shopping bills... but those groups all add up.

9 Loads of Laundry

Layers on layers on layers from the cold, leads to the huge piles of laundry.

8 Assignments Due

Extra credit opportunities and the last minute assignments to boost your grade means constant work and minimal sleep.

7 Friends Dancing

You are so close!! Celebratory dancing is most definitely called for. Grab your friends, spike that hot chocolate and get Jingle All The Way!

6 Blankets Piled

You can stay inside as much as possible to keep warm, but if you want to still have money after winter then pile up those blankets and don't touch the thermostat.

5 Mental Breakdowns

With the cold weather and the piled on assignments and exams you are sure to average at least 6 mental breakdowns... a week...

4 Deadly Finals

Just a little more studying and a few more nights without sleep and you are home free!! Those four finals can seem overpowering but you are capable of success!

3 Feet of Snow

Prepare yourself for the slippery streets and hidden cars under the snow.

2 Stubborn Teachers

Those professors sure know how to build on to the holiday stress... and find a way to not "see" your emails and forget to boost your 89% to a 90%.

​And a Christmas ready to be celebrated!

ITS TIME! The moment you've built up for. Christmas Time!! Indulge in the holiday traditions and stuff your stomachs with amazing food.

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.

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.
