The holiday season is coming to an end and the new year is now upon us. With every new year comes a "new me", and this year I want to tell you both how grateful and thankful I am for everything you do for me. After 18 years of living, here is what I want to say to you guys:

1. Thank you for the morning texts.

Though something small and done out of habit, they really do make my day. Dad, even when you confuse your "good mornings" with "good nights" on your flip phone, I can't help but smile and think about how lucky I am to see a new day with the people I love. Mom, I want you to know that I do read your morning quotes and inspiration, and I appreciate how you take the time out of your day to make mine a little a bit better.

2. Thank you for listening to me cry on the phone.

It's hard being away from you guys in college, and even if it doesn't seem like it, I miss you both more and more every single day. Whether it's about boys, school, or if I'm just being an emotional and over-dramatic teenager, I can always count on you guys to answer the phone and solve any problem I have.

3. Thank you for paying ridiculous amounts of money for me to get an education.

I see a lot of my friends struggling to pay for their education and taking out absurd loans; I could never picture myself in that position. Thank you for letting me go to a private high school; you easily could've said no and made me go to the public school around the corner. You spent thousands and thousands of dollars just so I can go to the high school I wanted. Thank you for letting me apply to any college I wanted, and finding a way to send me to my dream school. I never ever express how much this means to me, and sometimes I may seem like I take it for granted, but without you guys, I definitely would not be living out my dream, having the time of my life, and becoming the person I am today.

4. Thank you for both going back to work just so you can spend all your money on making Michael and me so happy.

Sometimes I'm spoiled and say "Well everyone else has it so I want it to." So many kids aren't as lucky as I am to have parents who work so hard and spend their money on getting their kids things they want.

5. Thank you for being there every step of my softball journey.

You both encouraged me to work as hard as I could, and shaped me into the player I am today. If it wasn't for all the time, money, and effort you put into making me the best player I could be, I'd never be living my dreams of playing Division I softball at a top school.

6. Thank you for always supporting me in everything I do.

Without both of your love and support, I'd be a lost cause. Thank you for always encouraging me to do big things and finish what I started, even if it is far-fetched and absolutely ridiculous. You taught me to follow my heart and with hard work, and I can accomplish anything I want to.

7. Finally, thank you for giving me life.

Thank you for having me and loving me unconditionally. Not everyone can say they've been raised by two of the best people in the entire world. Mom and dad, thank you for blessing me with your moral, intelligence, and loving nature, I am forever thankful for everything you do for me, and I love you both to the moon and back.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
