Enjoying Winter Break As Told By "The Lord Of The Rings"

Finals are finally over, and winter break now begins.

Enjoying Winter Break As Told By "The Lord Of The Rings"

So, winter break is finally here. Finals are over, teachers are no longer breathing down our necks, and now, long days of doing nothing on the couch with a remote in one hand and hot chocolate in the other begins. However, even though winter break is just that, a break, this time should also be used to not be a total couch potato and lean more towards being proactive for the coming semester. And with that, here are a few ways you can enjoy your break and keep from regaining that "Freshman 15" that you so ardently tried to lose...

1. We can now officially accept the fact that finals are done and will not return for the next six months.

2. Since number one has been established, a moment of silence is encouraged for those who didn't make it through finals.

3. Rejoice in the fact that you are finally able to stay at home and not be forced to wear pants.

4. Remember, DO NOT think about school. That is the whole point of winter break: NO SCHOOL. Enjoy it. Savor it. Don't even try to think about studying for next semester.

5. Finally, yes, we understand it is winter break. We can be lazy, get fat, and not care what a single person thinks about it. However, that doesn't mean we should become complete bums. Enjoy break, but also remember that exercise is good for the soul and an hour of it a day keeps the doctor away! Or maybe that was just apples... oh well. Either way, enjoy yourself, but be smart about it!

And that's all, folks! Enjoy winter break, and I hope you all did well on finals! Enjoy yourselves!

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.

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.
