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.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
