Receiving Presents in your Mid-20s

Kitchenware is essential.

Receiving Presents in your Mid-20s

As a young kid, toys were always an essential gift to get during Christmas. But as you got older, your need for toys transitioned into the latest and greatest fashion trends or electronics. And still, as you get into your mid-20s cooking appliances, new bedding, sock and underwear, truly get you pumped for Christmas.

As a 22 year old last year, I received a gift that made me Tiger Woods fist pump. No, it wasn't the new iPhone, or an Xbox One/PS4, but it was a new crock pot. Huge. And to top it off, I got flannel bed sheets. FINALLY, I can sleep in my basement bedroom without freezing to death in the middle of the night.

While getting the new electronics and fashions for Christmas as great, nothing will ever top the excitement of tearing wrapping paper that reveals a new pair of socks or underwear, because one can never have enough socks and undies. Although, my mother will debate that I have enough... Sorry, but no I don't. I have enough to last me a week. And that's not enough. I change underwear, sometimes twice-a-day due to my loyalty to working out. But that is neither here nor there.

In all, embrace the undies, socks, cooking appliances, and new bedding. It's all essential to our well-being as we move forward in life. I hope this year I get some pots and pans. Merry Christmas everybody!

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.
