5 Reasons New Year's Is The Worst Holiday For College Students In A Relationship

New Year's is fun until you spend it alone.

5 Reasons New Year's Is The Worst Holiday For College Students In A Relationship

Let's face it, New Year's is not only a holiday for welcoming in the new year, but it is also a holiday spent kissing your significant other as the clock chimes midnight. Fortunately and unfortunately for college students, New Year's is also a holiday that we get to spend back in our hometowns. In one sense, this is amazing to be back home with your friends and family, sleeping in your bed. However, this also means that you probably won't get the luxury of welcoming the New Year with your significant other. Here are 5 reasons why New Year's is the worst holiday for college students in a relationship.

1. You don't get a New Year's kiss.

The biggest and most exciting part about New Year's is when the clock finally strikes midnight and you get to welcome in the new year with your significant other by sealing it with a kiss. Unfortunately, if you don't get to spend this wonderful holiday with your significant other, watching everyone else give each other kisses really puts a damper on the holiday.

2. There's no one to cuddle up and watch fireworks with.

The fireworks are one of the grandest spectacles of the night and getting to watch them with your significant other is amazing, unless they're miles away. This, unfortunately, really makes the whole night kind of sad when you're alone and cold outside watching fireworks.

3. The very likely possibility that all of your friends are boo'd up.

New Years is prime time for you to end up being the third wheel. Going back home to all of your friends and their dates not only does it make you miss your own date more, but it also gives you flashbacks to constantly being the third wheel.

4. When it's New Year's at your house, it might not be New Year's at theirs.

My boyfriend lives 10 states away which means the time change really messes with your head on a day like New Year's. When he is wishing me a Happy New Year in his state, it'll barely be 10 p.m. in mine. This time difference alone is enough to make New Year's a really lame holiday.

5. You end up watching the countdown with your parents on the couch.

Now don't get me wrong, I love my parents, but sitting on the couch with them on New Year's is not ideal. Spending this holiday away from your significant other makes sitting on the couch with your family a very real possibility.

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.
