If College Majors Were Christmas Cookies

Choosing a Christmas cookie is almost as hard as picking a major.

If College Majors Were Christmas Cookies

Christmas is, in fact, the best time of the year. Of course, we cannot forget about Thanksgiving, but, unfortunately for Thanksgiving, Christmas is kind of like the cooler older sibling.

I mean, come on, Christmas has Christmas trees, decorations, snow, presents, my birthday and the best of all — Christmas cookies!

Christmas cookies are often enjoyed for their delectable taste, but a little-known fact is that they are also perfect for describing college majors! Here is the definitive ranking of some college majors as Christmas cookies!

1. Art Majors: Sugar Cookies

Just like Sugar Cookies, Art majors come up with unique ways to do the same thing — they're always looking for a way to elevate a project or assignment. Just like how sugar cookies come in tons of different shapes, sizes and host various decorations.

2. Business Majors: Gingerbread Cookies

Just like Gingerbread cookies, business majors are a classic staple. They're versatile and appropriate for many different holiday occasions, just like business majors can take a variety of career paths.

3. Journalism/Communication Majors: Dipped Ginger Cookies

Communication and Journalism majors have a strict way of doing things — they know exactly how to get the story they want through an age-old process. However, they aren't afraid to try something new to get the story they want, either, just like how dipping these classic cookies in white chocolate gives them a new look, trying out a new story method can give a story a fresh angle as well.

4. English Majors: Peppermint Cookies

English majors often get questioned about the practicality of their major, similarly, peppermint cookies often get questioned because mints already exist. But, just like English majors — peppermint cookies are a vital force in the world.

5. History Majors: Christmas Tree Cookies

Christmas trees are a staple symbol of Christmastime — similarly, history majors are able to tell you all about the important or notorious events from different points in history!

6. Biology Majors: Snowball Cookies

Biology majors are always up for a new experiment to discover something new — just like how snowball cookies can be filled with many different things and are always a surprise!

7. Psychology Majors: Lemon Curd Sandwich Cookies

Seemingly straightforward, but actually one of the hardest majors to study (and cookies to make) out there!

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.

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.
