What is the holiday season like for college students? It means internally crying because you need to buy gifts for friends and family (because you're not in enough debt as it is). It means being excited about holiday songs and endless food, but wincing every time a family member asks you about your nonexistent love life. Here's a college student's holiday season as told by "Friends." Enjoy!

1. Celebrating the spirit of the holiday's cannot be contained to one day, no, it's a whole month long celebration.

2. And that means dancing nonstop to Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" and any other holiday song that comes on.

3. Being home for the holiday's also means eating lots and lots of food. Whether it's a home-cooked meal from your mom, or a holiday party with endless dip, there's always food and you can't stop eating it.

4. But you do not have time to catch your family members up on your life when there's food to be eaten.

5.You're not sure how you can afford to buy gifts for everyone, so you have to get a little creative.

6. One thing you're sure of is you're not going to do any homework you're supposed to do.

7. Your being constantly reminded that you're single, whether it's mistletoe, New Year's Eve, or even your family members. If you're single for the holiday's, it's kind of hard to forget it.

8. And if you are in new a relationship,sharing the news with family isn't much easier, and it'll be all the relatives want to hear about.

9. But on the bright side, your friends will all be home for break.

10. And you can wear sweaters all day everyday.

11. And of course, you will always be that little excited kid when it comes to opening gifts on Christmas morning.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
