December Is The Best Month Of The Year

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!"

Thanksgiving is over and that means November is quickly coming to an end once again. With the dropping of leaves and the temperature, comes the first snowfall, Christmas movies and music, and the sudden burst of reds and greens! My Decembers each year also bring BOTH of my sister's birthdays, MY birthday and then Christmas with New Year's Eve! Despite it being one of the busiest months of the year if not THE busiest month, it is definitely my favorite.

The first reason for it being my favorite month is that on the first day of December, I get to celebrate my younger sister's birthday along with my uncles. She is just two years younger than me and so each year growing up we would share birthday parties! This meant lots of fun to start off the celebratory month. We'd enjoy bowling parties, gymnastics parties or even just game parties in our own home. It is always fun to celebrate a birthday with family and friends! This applies to my youngest sister's birthday on the 12th of December as well!

My birthday falls just a week before Christmas Eve on December 17th. This leaves for three weeks of celebration considering just a week after Christmas Eve is New Year's Eve! It truly does become one of the most wonderful times of the year.

Some of my favorite things to do in the month of December are go Christmas shopping, listen to Christmas music, watch Elf and The Polar Express on repeat, go sledding, skiing, and spend time with my family. This year my family and I are going to New York City for a few days which I am excited for because of how decorated the city is at this time of year! Overall December is a time to reflect and spend time with those that you love. It truly is my favorite month of the year.

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.
