Fun/Free Things To Do Over Christmas Break.

Okay, so I know that a lot of people suffer from boredom over breaks. I am not one of those people typically but I know some people who are. I also know that around Christmas time the finances get tight. So I I thought I would share some unique, funny, and enjoyable things to do this Christmas break if you start to suffer from boredom. Try some of these things out and see how much you have!

Recreate old photos.

It is so funny and everyone will surely get a great kick out of it. Everyone in your family will laugh about it for hours and it makes a great gag gift. Just find some similar clothes that you own now and say cheese!

Have a snowball fight.

This is a classic way to have fun. keep score or play on teams. This will make it a lot more interesting. It is basically a magical gift from nature that we should make the most of. At least make a snow angel or make some snow cream. Snow can be used for so many wonderful things so the next time it snows don't spend all day inside.

Make a blanket fort and watch movies.

Show off your building skills here. Get a bunch of blankets and chairs and make a giant fort. Put pillows all over the floor and get cozy. Turn on your favorite movies and pull out some snacks and just have a blast.

Sing karaoke.

Just get on YouTube and search any karaoke version of the song you are wanting to sing. You don't have to be good. Actually, it is better and funnier if you are terrible. Don't be shy. Try to gather up an audience and take turns. Try to see who can have the worst performance.

Check out a book from the library without reading what it is about.

Don't read the summary. Choose a book just by its cover, take it home and try it. Go to a section that you usually wouldn't normally check out. Pick out a cover that doesn't look like a typical book you would read. It might be terrible, but it might be amazing. Either way, it will be an adventure. Most public libraries you can check out books for free by getting a free membership card.

Whatever you decide to do this break, don't think that you have to be bored. You can always find something wonderful to do with your free time. Life moves at such a fast pace it is nice to catch up with people. Make every second count and find something that you truly love to do. I hope you have a wonderful, creative, full of life break.

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.
