Coming home for the holidays from college can be a very weird time. Nothing beats a good home cooked meal and having zero stress of school work. However, all of a sudden your college social life turns into a game of 20-questions with your extended family. Your freedom is dependant on your family plans and your life is now the peak of everybody's interest. As I said, it's a weird time--one that can only be accurately described through a series of quotes from the one and only, Eric Forman.

1. That feeling when you finish your last final and get to go home.

2. When you spend your first night back in your own bed.

3. When you taste a homecooked meal for the first time in way too long.

Giphy

4. When your mom says the WHOLE family is going to be at Christmas.

Giphy

5. When your family asks you how finals went.

Giphy

6. That feeling of your extended family asking you every question possible about life at school.

Giphy

7. The realization that going out to dinner at home means you don't have to pay.

Giphy

8. The second realization that going out to dinner at home means talking about your grades and the angel you are at school.

Giphy

9. When your mom sends you to the grocery store and you see every old teacher, neighbor, and family friend there who are prepared to ask you 100 questions about college.

Giphy

10. When being at home means you finally get to hang out with your hometown best friends... Buuuut your mom sets a curfew.

Giphy

11. But overall, there is nothing like being home from college to be with your closest family and friends.

Giphy

Happy Holidays to every college student at home; enjoy it while you can.

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.

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.
