Perfect Christmas List for Any College Student

How to please the hard-working college student in your life this holiday season.

Perfect Christmas List for Any College Student

1. Money

Cash, checks, direct deposits, we're really not picky.

2. A massage

Finals week is very physically trying on us. All the hunching over crying can mess with your back pretty bad.

3. Amazon gift Cards

You don't have to worry about getting them something they'll hate but not have the motivation to actually return or regift, so gift cards are always a safe bet.

4. Restaurant gift cards

The school food gets a little old after a while and sometimes it's nice to just treat yoself...unless you're broke like the rest of the other broke college students.

5. Fuzzy socks

I mean, who doesn't love fuzzy socks? This is a pretty perfect gift for anyone on your Christmas list.

6. A day to do nothing

Parents, try and remember the stress of finals when you were in school? Those weeks of endless assignments? How you wish all your could do was nothing? Yeah, things haven't changed.

7. Textbook money

We're probably not going to read them anyways, buuuuuut we're at least our professors will appreciate us at least having them.

8. Their favorite home cooked meal

Because there's nothing like 'em!

9. Basic cleaning supplies

Laundry detergent, dryer sheets, dish soap, sponges, Lysol, cleaning wipes, a small vacuum, a boom and dustpan, etc. We're not (all) animals.

10. Technology

Speakers, a TV, DVD player, new headphones, or other appliances of that nature are much appreciated.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
