Preparing Ourselves For Thanksgiving Break!

Thanksgiving break is coming for us college students, and it's time to go all out.

Preparing Ourselves For Thanksgiving Break!
Big Bang Theory

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and colleges have either started or about to start their first break of the year! Whether you commute or dorm; plan to stay in the dorms, or visit family over the break, all of us college students know that it is time to kick back and enjoy our beloved freedom from school. And procrastinate on homework.

I decided to take a break myself from serious topics (at least this week) and make a list for things we are grateful for the break and enjoy our alone time! ...until Thanksgiving comes and we have to face family, BUT ANYWAY--


Let's start this list with a bang! Turn off those alarm clocks that ring every 5 minutes; unpack that backpack full of papers and projects; relax your whole body from the incessant headaches and blistering feet; SLEEP ALL DAY--You have a week without classes! Or five days, like me.

At last we have a break from our professors and the loads of work they attack us with for weeks on end! It's time to make our brains stop thinking and learning for a little while.

Speaking of...


I'm both dreading and anticipating this one because there's so much I have to catch up to, and I'm sure you do as well. For me, it's the rest of season seven of The Walking Dead (I ALREADY WATCHED THE FIRST EPISODE AND WROTE ABOUT IT HERE), season 4 of RBWY, a bunch of anime listed on my endless list typed on my phone, and tons of Youtube videos on my 'Watch Later' playlist. I am very guilty of binge-watching things, but shameless and even dare I say proud of it!


This is more of a personal one, but we all have our hobbies and quirks we do in our free time. It can be simple things like listening to music, or as I mentioned earlier, watching Youtube videos, playing video games non-stop,

An example for myself would be drawing characters and writing stories that I enjoy, not art projects required from my university. Even in art school, many students and I in artistic fields have to take required 'core' art courses and even a few gen-ed classes here and there such as writing and science, so no even I'm not off the hook with that.


SLEEP? WHAT?! I CAN SLEEP ALL DAY LONG! But at night... that's when 'me' time begins, people! I may or may not have been guilty of staying up until 5 a.m. playing Sims...

But I'm just glad to spend extra hours watching shows or drawing! ...not like I have not already been doing so during the school year. Nope. Not at all. Yes.

And last, but not least...


It's Thanksgiving, and it wouldn't be without food! Well, you have prepared yourself for all the things above. You got your laptop ready, all the tabs going and plugged in for good measure. It's 2 a.m. already, but no one is going to stop you! It's time to devour that giant bag of chips waiting in the closet!

Be careful about filling yourself up Wednesday night and/or Thursday morning, otherwise that Turkey is not going to fit into your stomach.

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.
