5 DIY Holiday Gifts

College students are at the age of trying to not go broke but also not being able to get away with cute little kid gifts anymore. The struggle of this is trying to think of things to get for people. Now the holidays aren't just about gift-giving but it's the most stressful part. My go-to is to always create gifts. Now I may not be the most artistic person so these can be for anyone!

Wine Bottles- for the Aunts and Uncles


Trying to recycle is the first thing I do when trying to thing of gift ideas. It's good for the environment and can be a really cute gift. You can personalize them too! Maybe with their favorite colors or favorite animal. It's super simple, you just need wine bottles, paint, and a paint brush.

Winter Hat ornaments- for grandparents


These winter hats are so cute and take no time at all! Yarn, scissors, and toilet paper rolls are the only things you need. This is again a great way to recycle things. Grandparents will love these little hats, and they'll have a constant reminder of you in their house.

Paintings - for Parents


Parents, no matter how old you get, love to get paintings and drawing from their children. It comes from the heart and allows you to show your more artistic side.

Book Clocks - Significant others parents or grandparents


These are so cute and great decorations. They are a bit more time to make since you have to cut through pages and put the hardware together but it's so rewarding in the end to see the final product.

Sports Ball Painting - Cousins or significant other


This is so fun to do. Take the sport they play or they like and paint it into something cool like a sunset. A few spray paint colors and tape is all you would need. It comes out so fun and cute.

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.

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.

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.
