Why I Love Winter Break

Because finals week could not go by any faster...

Well, it's finals week. The week of hell that nobody in college ever looks forward to. And you know what? I can't wait for it to be over. Because I cannot WAIT to get home! A month with my family - what could be better? Not much!

Here's why I am so excited!

1. I get to see my parents and my brother

I know that I basically saw them all about two weeks ago, but I am ready to see my family. After a stressful week, a hug from mom, dad, even my brother, would be very welcome right now. They are my support system, and I can't wait to be back with them again!

2. Extended Family!

Instead of driving home right away, I am going to visit my grandmother and help wrap her Christmas presents before going home. I also get to go up to Maine and celebrate Christmas with my dad's family, which is super exciting. I get to see family that I haven't seen in a while, and that always warms my heart after a stressful end to the semester.

3. Food, glorious food!

I get to each actual human food made by me or my dad or my mom or any other family! I am so ridiculously excited for real food, not school food, that I know this is one of the main reasons I love going home!

4. Absolutely no homework!

This is the month where I don't have to worry about doing ANYTHING! No school work, no assigned reading, no notes, no presentation or project to work on. I love the freedom of doing absolutely nothing!

Winter break is almost upon us! You can get tuhrogh this week, then enjoy a month away from school! See you next semester!

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.
