My Sixteen Favorite Christmas Songs

It's Christmas y'all! You know what that means? CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!!!!!!!

(Can you tell I'm excited?)

So, to get you in the mood for Christmas, here's my sixteen favorite Christmas songs!

1. O Holy Night by Il Divo

I love this version the best simply because Il Divo is so fantastic and it's beautiful. Plus, they're pretty fun to look at.

2. Merry Xmas (War is Over) by John Lennon

Yes, I am a Lennon fan. Yes, I know this was a publicity stunt. It's still my favorite.

3. Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney

Does this even need an explanation? I've concluded that it doesn't.

4. Baby, It's Cold Outside by Bing Crosby and Doris Day

This song is so classic, how can I not include it?! Plus, Christmas isn't Christmas without Bing Crosby!

5. Fairytale of New York by The Pogues

Okay, so this is half Christmas song, half 'what am I listening to' but it is definitely one of my favorites! Don't judge me.

6. Do They Know It's Christmas by Band Aid 1984

This is such an important song even after all these years!

7. Last Christmas by Wham!

What's better than Wham? Wham at Christmas!

8. Run Rudolph Run by Chuck Berry

To me, this song is a must! I think of Home Alone every time I hear this song and it's tradition to watch that movie in our house!

9. Mary, Did You Know? by Pentatonix

If you haven't heard this, you're missing out. I love this song regardless, but this version is amazing.

Also, this version. Because holy impressive.

10. Santa Baby by Eartha Kitt

Not only is this song what everyone wants for Christmas, it's super sensual without being creepy. I mean, who doesn't want a yacht?

11. I'm Dreaming of A White Christmas by The Drifters

This is a cute song as it is, but this version is so much fun!

12. Merry Christmas, Darling by The Carpenters

I think I'm just partial to this song because I've sang it, but it's just so perfect.

13. Christmas Eve/Sarajevo by Trans Siberian Orchestra

It's just not Christmas without TSO. If you think it is, YOU'RE WRONG.

14. Carol of the Bells

I pretty much like any version of this song. Seriously. Any version.

15. You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch by Thurl Ravenscroft

Fun Fact: Thurl Ravenscroft was also the voice behind Tony the Tiger!

16. All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey

Did you think you would get through a list of Christmas songs without this classic? YOU WERE WRONG!


So from me to you,

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.
