Get Through Thanksgiving Before Talking About Christmas

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Many people think that just because Halloween is over it means that it is socially acceptable to start talking about Christmas. But here's the thing. It is not okay to start talking about Christmas yet, I don't want to hear Christmas music and I don't want to see Christmas movies already on TV.

Don't get me wrong Christmas is my favorite holiday but I can only take just so much Christmas before I'm Christmased out. The last couple of years I haven't been in the Christmas spirit once the holiday actually rolled around because everyone around me was in all out Christmas mode on November 1st.

My proposition for you all is to get through Thanksgiving before you start to go total Christmas. You will probably find more people in the Christmas spirit as the holiday gets closer because they won't have been bombarded with Christmas everywhere for almost two months by the time it actually gets here.

If we slowed down and took things one holiday at a time instead of essentially skipping over a holiday you might find fewer Grinches around Christmas and you would see fewer people stressed out about holidays.

Sure Christmas is supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. But it isn't when you shove Christmas down everyone's throat well before it is actually time to worry about it. You will see your family at Thanksgiving you can ask them then what they might want for Christmas. You can start playing Christmas music and showing Christmas movies on Black Friday.

Too much of a good thing is not always good. If you eat too much candy you'll get a stomach ache. If you start all things Christmas too early you will have people who are Christmased out well before Christmas even if it is that person's favorite holiday.

Slow down. Smell the roses and take it one holiday at a time!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Heading Home For The Summer

Why go somewhere fun when you can go home?

girl with parents

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.
