5  Most Popular Holiday Cookies

With all the snow outside and the Holidays right around the corner, baking cookies is a great way to spend time with family and friends. There are so many different types of cookies out there, you could pick just about anything. Whether you're a gingerbread type of person or more of a snickerdoodle person there's something out there for you, I just happened to find a list of 5 of the best holiday cookies out there.

In kindergarten, around the holidays, we had the mystery gingerbread man that would roam the halls of our school. We followed the crumbs left behind to find out where he was hiding, and when we finally found him we got to eat lots of gingerbread cookies. Ever since I was little gingerbread cookies have always been a popular cookie I see around the holidays. I mean, how cool is it that you can not only make gingerbread men but also gingerbread houses!? And then you get to decorate them. This is definitely a great one to make with the kids.

Now, some people aren't the biggest fans of gingerbread (I don't know why), but if that's the case and gingerbread cookies aren't for you, then maybe you'll be more of a peanut butter person.

Peanut butter blossoms are a fantastic cookie for you peanut butter and chocolate lovers out there. What better combination is there than peanut butter and chocolate. Whether you make them with a a hershey kiss on top or a reese's peanut butter cup, its sure to be delicious.

Now, I know some of you out there are allergic to peanuts (and I sincerely apologize for that dreadful inconvenience) so bare with me.

This next one may not actually be a "cookie" but i guarantee it will be so much better. The Oreo ball is for all you chocoholics out there. What could be better than Oreo cookies mashed up into a ball with cream cheese then dipped in chocolate. Let me tell you, almost nothing. So if you're looking for something different this holiday, or maybe just for a late night snack, Oreo balls are the way to go.

For the classic christmas cookie people out there, this next one it for you. You can never go wrong with the classic cookie cutter sugar cookies. You can make them in regular (I would say boring) but simple circles, or you can create some awesome looking cookies with the holiday cookie cutters. How can you not smile while eating a snowman shaped cookie, am I right?

And last but not least, if all else fails and you don't like any of these cookies (seriously who wouldn't though?), I'm sure you'll love these chocolate mint cookies. They're the perfect combination of chocolate and mint. The andes mints on the top add to the deliciousness of the cookie.

If you're a cookie lover there's no way you won't like at least one of these fabulous cookies, if not all of them. And if you aren't a cookie or sweets lover then you should probably revaluate your situation. Seriously sweets are amazing and these are great for the holidays. Now get to it and have some fun making cookies with your family or friends.

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.

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.
