3 Things I Look Forward To Every Holiday Season

We get to celebrate with loved ones and take a much needed break (for those that are in school or finishing school, just as myself — wink, wink).

3 Things I Look Forward To Every Holiday Season

It really is the most wonderful time of the year, for most of the world anyway. We get to celebrate with loved ones and take a much-needed break (for those that are in school or finishing school, just as myself — wink, wink). And although seasonal/ holiday depression is very real and something that a lot of the world deals with there is something rather special about the holiday season.

Here are a few of my favorite things:

Christmas in New York

I recently celebrated my third year anniversary of living in New York so I am in celebratory mode still. I remember always being envious (in a non-threatening/ appreciative way) of people who got to spend Christmas in New York

Christmas Music

Here’s a little-known fact about me: I LOVE Christmas music. I am that girl that will start playing Christmas music the month of November all throughout the month of February. And if I’m feeling nostalgic I’ll blast it on a random day in June. There are so many covers out there of Christmas music but the one album that has been on repeat for me since it came out (Five years ago!!!) is "Christmas" by Michael Buble <3 I can’t choose a favorite, I just love ALL the songs. A close second that I’ve been listening to lately is "Mary, Did You Know?" Pentatonix cover. ❤️ So many beautiful voices, I can’t handle it!!!

Vlogmas on YouTube:

There is nothing that I look forward to more than seeing a lot of YouTubers document their life for 25 days before Christmas every year. It’s become a tradition in the community for this to take place... Every. Single. Year. And its viewers can’t get enough. Of course, it must be tiring for them to have to film, edit and upload every single day for 25 consecutive days but it’s such a nice reminder for them to look back to.

I always thought it was so magical and the movies made it look all romantic with the Christmas tree lit up, the snow, the lights and decoration. I lived here when I was younger but moving to another state that doesn’t offer a white Christmas really makes you appreciate when you move to the city of your dreams. I should’ve bought a 2013 Christmas ornament but I didn’t even think about it.

These are what I love about the Christmas holidays. Sometimes life problems and past sad memories get in the way, but I always try to remember how much I love the Christmas season.

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
