Ring In The New Year With The Xbox Games With Gold January Lineup

What better way to celebrate a new decade?

Ring In The New Year With The Xbox Games With Gold January Lineup

A new decade is upon us in a couple days. What better way to start it than with free games? For Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Gold subscribers, welcome 2020 with these four game titles at your disposal.

1. Styx: Shards of Darkness

(Originally $12.99)

Available January 1-31

Styx: Shards of Darkness is a game surrounding the concept of stealth. Take control as the goblin thief Styx and infiltrate and travel the Dark Elven city of Körangar to discover why the dark elves have formed an alliance with the dwarves.

2. Batman: The Telltale Series

(Originally $14.99)

Available January 16 to February 15

My personal favorite out of January's lineup is Batman The Telltale Series. Players take control of the Dark Knight himself and defend Gotham City from various threats. Be cautious: the choices you make in the game tailor the way the game is played, so choose wisely.

3. Tekken 6

(Originally $15.00)

Available January 1-15

Originally on the Xbox 360, Tekken 6 was a popular fighting game due to its ever-growing roster. Each of the characters have their own deadly techniques, martial arts moves, and attack combinations, all ready to assist you as you make your way through the ultimate king of iron tournament. If you haven't played a Tekken game before, this seems like the perfect place to start.

4. LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy

(Originally $6.49)

Available January 16-31

Take a trip through the Star Wars series but with the comedic effect of Legos added in and relive moments form the original Star Wars trilogy: Episodes IV, V, and VI. Customize your own LEGO character, solve various puzzles, and enjoy the game with a friend with its drop in and out function. A favorite game from my childhood, and If you haven't played it yet, I'd highly recommend it.

Taking full advantage of all these great free Xbox games seems like a great New Year's resolution to me!

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.
