November: A Month That Ends In Delicious Turkey And Is The Start Of Christmas

But there are plenty of fun national days to celebrate in between!

November: A Month That Ends In Delicious Turkey And Is The Start Of Christmas

November is most known for one day filled with thanksgiving, turkeys, and tummy aches. It is also the month before Christmas, so many even forget about Thanksgiving and start listening to Christmas music, baking Christmas cookies, and have already got their Christmas decorations hanging up on Nov. 1. However, November is much cooler than Thanksgiving and pre-Christmas. November is full of many national days that we can celebrate so that every day is a party.

Nov. 3: National Housewife’s Day and National Sandwich Day

Some find this funny, others maybe not so much… Either way it’s an ironic day. It's a day to eat as many sandwiches as you want and have zero regrets about it. And please men, do not ask your wife or girlfriend to make you a sandwich on this day, I’m sure they will hurt you.

Nov. 4: National Candy Day

Break out the rest of that Halloween candy and have a party!

Nov. 5: National Men Make Dinner Day (First Thursday in November)

The rule is it cannot be BBQ, so men, get cookin’!

Nov. 6: National Nachos Day

What do you call a cheese that isn’t yours?

Nacho Cheese!

Nov. 8: National Cappuccino Day

Nov. 11: Veterans Day

Don’t forget to thank the veterans who risked their lives for our freedom.

Nov. 12: National Pizza with the Works Except Anchovies Day

A very specific holiday, but I’m going to celebrate it because who even likes anchovies?

Nov. 14: National Pickle Day

Nov. 15: National Philanthropy Day and National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

Cleaning out your fridge is probably philanthropic in and of itself for your friends who visit. However, it’s a day to be philanthropic and help the world around you, so mark it in your calendars!

Nov. 16: National Fast Food Day

Let’s be real, in college that is every day.

Nov. 18: Mickey Mouse's Birthday

This is the perfect excuse to throw a party and to celebrate the most beloved mouse on earth.

Nov. 21: National Stuffing Day

Nov. 24: National Sardines Day


Nov. 25: International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women Day

Nov. 26: Thanksgiving

Gobble Gobble

Nov. 27: Black Friday and Flossing Day

Of course, the day after we give thanks, we storm the mall in search for on-sale items. Pick up some floss while you’re at it.

Nov. 28: National French Toast Day

Nov. 30: National Meth Awareness Day and National Mousse Day

Can you tell I like food?

Don’t forget to celebrate the month as a whole with these monthly events:

  • Lung Cancer Awareness Month
  • Movemeber
  • No Shave November
  • National Peanut Butter Lovers Month
  • National Vegan Month
  • National Adoption Month
  • National Diabetes Month

So get on out there and make something of your November!

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.

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.
