It's the Holiday Season!

No, it's not too early for Christmas songs.

I’m not going to lie. I started groaning when one of my best friends started playing Christmas music as soon as November 1st rolled around. But if I’m being honest, the spirit of Christmas is something that embraces everyone and makes everyone happy—and in the coldest months of the year, it is really heartwarming to have something to join together and celebrate!

So, here’s my little list of why it’s never too early to celebrate Christmas!

1. The earlier you start Christmas shopping, the better. This way, you won’t be spending huge amounts of money all at once. Spreading out expenses for the ones you love as well as putting in time and effort to get them thoughtful gifts will help your bank account and your relationships!

2. The longer you are in the Christmas spirit, the more time you have to get that really hot winter body—meaning the more sugar you can ingest without feeling guilty. Plus, when there are so many cookies, chocolates, and warm drinks to consume—you really shouldn’t feel guilty for something that feels so right.

3. Christmas lights are a much needed pick-me-up. Not only is the sun setting earlier now, it is also rising later now too. With days this short, and as college students who never sleep, lights help ease the sadness that comes with seasonal changes. Having lights up, especially multi-colored Christmas lights that typically bring about good memories, really raises spirits.

4. Time seems to go by quicker in the Christmas season. With so much to bake and buy, you always seem to run out of days quickly, and while the end of term feels intense, we still want it to go by before we can blink our eyes.

So, this season try not to roll your eyes when someone mentions Christmas. Maybe it’s too early for you, but don’t take away the happiness that this season brings to someone else. And hey—if it’s ticking you off that much— maybe you need some Christmas spirit!

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.

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.
