You Can’t Go Through the Season Without Watching Them!

Our All-Time Favorite Christmas Movie Characters

One of the best parts about Christmas is snuggling up with a mug of hot chocolate and watching all of your favorite holiday movies! Here’s a list of the classic Christmas characters that we wait all year to watch.

  1. Buddy the Elf is without a doubt the elf with the most Christmas cheer, and makes it easy for us to get in the spirit as well!
  2. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer has a very shiny nose, is a misfit, and Clarice the doe thinks he’s cute! TBH we do, too.
  3. Frosty the Snowman’s first words are not “Hello”, “Merry Christmas”, or “Why the heck am I, a pile of snow with a hat, talking to you right now?”, but instead, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” This is why we love him.
  4. The Grinch, be it the animated one from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, or Jim Carrey’s version, is the perfect villain-turned-hero. I think all of our hearts grow 3x their sizes right along with him.
  5. Santa Claus, who, granted, can be kind of a jerk in some of these movies, like when he hates on Rudolph for his nose until it becomes convenient, or when he decides to TAKE A HOLIDAY FROM CHRISTMAS, and when won’t fatten up when Mama Claus tells him to, but he has the best job ever. Gotta love Santa.

  6. The Miser Twins are a freaking riot. Their rivalry, sing-alongs, and mutual fear of their mother gave everyone with a sibling someone to relate to.

  7. Kevin McCallister, the little boy who gets left home alone every Christmas, orders the junk food we all wish we could afford from a swanky hotel, and somehow manages to defeat a couple of equally hilarious crooks every year. How could you not love the kid?

  8. Ralphie Parker. Poor kid just wants that Red Ryder BB Gun. “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”
  9. Scott Calvin, the selfish dad who accidentally becomes Santa Claus. Not his son, though. I think we can all agree the kid’s a whiner.

  10. Clark Griswold: Chevy Chase at his best, and a great Griswold Family Vacation movie.

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.
