13 Things Your College-Aged Niece Or Nephew Is Praying You Don't Ask Them This Holiday Season

Just don't. No, please no. GOD NO. NOOOOOOOOO.


It's about that time of year. Going home for the holidays, seeing your hometown friends and family, doing a little shopping and a little relaxing.

Being home is bittersweet because you miss your home and your home back in college, but you don't miss the schoolwork, the constant studying, not sleeping as much, and more.

What you don't like being at home is the questions asked by every single family member.

1. "How are your grades?"

Haven't looked at them in months...

2. "Are you dating anyone?"

No, and if I was I wouldn't tell you.

3. "Have you lost any weight? Are you working out?"

I'm just not eating..

4. "Have you been eating healthy/right?"

Wait Taco Bell isn't healthy?

5. "How is it like being home for the holidays?"

Great, until you started to ask me these questions.

6. "Do you miss being at college?"

I'm saying no, but I'm meaning yes.

7. "What are you planning on doing with your degree?"

Uhhhh.. hopefully use it.

8. "How are the roommates?"

I hope good. I haven't seen them in a couple of weeks.

9. "Wow, you must go out a lot, eh?"

Not often.....

10. "Are you sleeping well?"

Sleep is for the weak apparently.

11. "Do you have a job? How are you affording all of these new clothes and your food?"

I'm in the negatives in my bank account.

12. "Do you ever miss home?"

The free food, free rent, somewhere to do laundry? Yes.

13. "The job market is not doing well right now. Aren't you worried?"

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
