Have you ever realized there are stages to realizing it's Christmas?? Fear not if you haven't because here they are with a twist!

The Realization:

That moment around either Halloween or Thanksgiving (or July if you're like me) where you realize Christmas is coming with all it's glory and your life will soon look like a winter wonderland of lights and trees decorated in beauty.

Imagining the Perfect Christmas Morning:

Once you've realized Christmas is close, you start imagining what it'll be like when you watch your friends and family open the perfect gifts you got for them, and you can just smell those cookies that you baked, and there's music and laughter and love...

The Downside:

And then you remember that the presents and ingredients all cost money that you currently don't have so you have only a couple weeks to save up money, find the perfect gift, and get it shipped and/or wrapped all by December 25th. Plus you think of the family fight that will ritualistically pop up, and wonder if this is the year Grandpa Joe finally throws his shoe at cousin Louise when she brings up the Hillary vs Trump debate for the Nth time this year.

Actual Christmas:

You go to where ever you're meant to be this year, and realize all the trivial things are just that because you have the people you love and good food, and somehow, even if there's fighting, there will be at least one good moment you should remember about this years Christmas.


Now that Christmas is here, enjoy it and don't be afraid to Instagram your food!!

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.
