A College Student's Wish List To Santa

I promise I still think you're real.

A College Student's Wish List To Santa
The Early Years

As college students, most of us don't want lavish gifts. We want things we don't really have a lot of power over, is extremely difficult to achieve, don't exist, or we don't have the motivation to do it ourselves. I would like to think that I am on the nice list. Sure I missed my Friday 8:30 a.m. class because I was out Thursday night, but will that really be the deciding factor as to what list I am on? I think not.

Dear Santa,

1) Time

Like, how am I supposed to re-watch Grey's Anatomy with 4 finals, a research paper, and a group presentation coming up soon?

2) Food, endless amounts of food

Food is essential. How else am I supposed to handle stress and sadness?

3) Money

You know, for school supplies, beer, my Netflix subscription, books, and wine.

4) A's in all my classes

Of course I studied, but did I put in the required 35+ hours of studying a week? No I didn't, but I know I deserve the 4.0 GPA. Please and thank you

5) Wifi

First of all tuition isn't cheap, BUT IS GOOD WIFI TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR?!

6) Parking

Again, tuition isn't cheap. Santa, you would think the university would provide enough parking for the thousands of students that are enrolled...but nope. I have to be a savage in the parking lot, and it isn't a good look for me.

7) Sleep

Oh, probably the most precious of all. Although, even if you did gift me with 5 weeks of sleep, I would probably still wake up exhausted and want even more sleep.

8) Photographic memory

Like the beautiful one Lexy Grey (RIP) had. (I will not cry. I will not cry.) Imagine how much easier college, and life would be with a photographic memory? Geez, I'm crying tears of joy just thinking about it. Gift it to me. Please.

9) Can you somehow get rid of my debt?

I am just trying to better myself, and not be an even bigger hot mess than I am now. So, why won't you be a good guy and take it from me?

10) A Keurig machine that dispenses mimosas and sangria.

I would love for my mornings to have a little bit of a kick sometimes.

11) Last but not least, can you guarantee I will get a job once I graduate?

Post graduation, I will have 3-5 years of extremely hard work under my belt and I STILL have no peace of mind that I will get a job? RIDICULOUS SANTA. But, while you're at it make it a job with at least 3 weeks of vacation time.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.

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.
