As a huge admirer of Tina Fey's work, I could not contain my excitement when I found out she created a show for Netflix. When "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" aired its entire season last spring, it only took two days for me to watch the whole thing. Even though I don't watch it on a daily basis anymore, I often think about the hilarious cast and the funniest moments of the show; with winter break approaching, I will definitely be re-watching Tina Fey's genius show again! In preparation for the excitement I have for holiday break, I have the 10 best feelings you experience during holiday break, as told by "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

1. Realizing you're done with finals

This was you a week ago, but now you're cuddled into bed, enjoying the fact there's no alarm set for an early morning exam, and it can stay that way for a while!

2. Eating junk food

Maybe not exactly what your mom had planned, but she'll let it slide because you deserve it after the four months of cafeteria food.

3. Wearing PJs ... constantly

Wearing pajamas every single day isn't frowned upon unless I'm expected to be at a Christmas or New Year's party. Which is OK with me.

4. Reuniting with your pet

You're so excited to see them, and you'll do everything to make them love you even if they may not want it, including reenacting "The Lion King."

5. Reaching a new level of laziness

Your mom may want you to help her make Christmas cookies, but you already got up for breakfast and now you're settling in to binge-watch some Netflix. You can only do so much.

6. Choosing to ignore all responsibilities

Stepping away from your to-do list can be the most rewarding thing -- just don't forget about it before you go back to school.

7. Fighting with your sibling(s)

Let's face it, we all miss teasing our siblings, so it doesn't feel like a jab at your self-esteem when they start an argument with you during winter break.

8. Enjoying guilt-free naps

It's already midmorning and it's time for your second nap. Just blame it on the lack of sleep during the past semester, and your family won't question anything.

9. Visiting your friends who are working

While your friends may find an opportunity to make some extra cash over break, you find the opportunity to visit them and tell them how proud you are of their hard work.

10. Realizing you get to reunite with your college friends soon!

After being home for a while, you start to miss school a little. Then you remember in a few short weeks you will be reunited with your roomy!

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.
