Tips to help you make it through this holiday season.

Do's And Don'ts Of The Christmas Season

December is underway, and do you know what that means? CHRISTMAS IS APPROACHING! Here are some tips to help you make it through this holiday season.

DO: Ask your mom to borrow a sweater for a holiday party.

DON'T: Tell her that the theme is "Ugly Christmas Sweater" party.

DO: Hang up festive and tasteful lights to show you're in the holiday spirit.

DON'T: Put up lights like these:

DO: Bring your significant other to the family parties, only if you're ready to unleash that part of your life.

DON'T: Forget to remind your senile grandmother that you are no longer with your previous significant other to avoid confusion and hurt feelings and suspicions of having a lover on the side.

DO: Listen to Christmas music 24/7.

DON'T: Turn it on until 12:01am the day after Thanksgiving.

DO: Get your friends funny gifts if you are in a jokin' mood.

DON'T: Buy gag gifts like these:

DO: Have some fun at the office holiday party (you deserve it!)

DON'T: Get wasted in front of the people who sign your paychecks (especially if you're underage...)

DO: Ask your family members questions about their lives, you know, to catch up on events like any caring relative would do.

DON'T: Bring up your Aunt Linda's 3rd divorce.

DO: Stay positive and happy during this joyous time!

DON'T: Expect every. single. aspect. of the season to go absolutely perfectly. (For example: getting every present on your list and avoiding awkward questions from even more awkward family members and the dinner you're making turning out unscathed)

Relax, and enjoy the most wonderful time 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.

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.
