Yes, I’m The Grinch, Yes, I Hate Christmas, And I'm OK With That

The Christmas season is right around the corner and I am already tired of it.

Yes, I’m The Grinch, Yes, I Hate Christmas, And I'm OK With That
Rosa Vicente

I hate Christmas. I hate Christmas. I hate Christmas.

The music, the decorations, the hype over it. I just don't get it nor do I want to get it.

I know that you're probably wondering if I have had a bad experience with Christmas and the truth is that I haven't. I just don't like it and this is why.

To start off, every store is PACKED. The lines are no joke, there are clothes scattered all around the store and don't even get me started on trying to find parking.

The second worst thing about it is that everyone pretends to be happy for one holiday.

Just be straight up and tell your aunt that she's rude instead of pretending to like her. Stop putting up a fake front for the holiday season. Everyone knows you guys just talk smack behind each other's back at every other holiday anyways.

Last but not least, the kids. Maybe it's because I didn't grow up believing in Santa Claus or whatever, but kids are so darn selfish about their presents! This is especially noticeable when their parents go above and beyond to give them everything and they don't even appreciate it. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing my nieces, nephews and little cousins open presents, but it just angers me when they're so ungrateful about it.

However, I will tell you the one good thing about Christmas.

The food. Especially in a Hispanic family household.

Tamales. Champurrado. Buñuelos. Atole. De todo. It's all worth it. It's my favorite part of the whole holiday because you get to spend hours in the kitchen with your favorite people as everyone tells stories from past Christmases. The food is made of love. Which is why I just shove my face with food so I don't have to deal with everyone's "Christmas cheer."

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.
