Is It Thanksgiving Break Yet?

Is It Thanksgiving Break Yet?
Losing It

It's that time of year, the holiday season. The wind is brisk, "Elf" is playing on TV, and I have two projects, three presentations, and 17 papers due by next Friday. The fall semester has it's perks, with the multitude of breaks and the change of season, but it's also the time where the end feels so close, yet so so far. Thanksgiving break, in all of its wonder, is just around the corner. Here are just some of the many reasons why Thanksgiving break cannot come fast enough.

My wallet is pissed at how much money I've been spending on coffee for all the all-nighters.

I have forgotten what it is like to get more than six hours of sleep...actually... What is sleep?

My diet has consisted of Easy Mac, coffee, and chips...Thanksgiving dinner is about to pour a whole new sense of life into me.

If I have to hear the alarm clock go off one more time...

I need this time to put the pieces of my life back together.

I can't remember when I did my laundry last... should probably get that done.

My motivation lasted as long as the A's I had at the beginning of the semester.

Netflix has taken a backseat to homework; it just isn't right.

When I come back from break, my roommate won't think I'm insane for playing christmas music and decorating.

I feel like there is more of a chance that it will snow after Thanksgiving, and that means no class.

With all of that being said, is it Thanksgiving break yet?!

clock indicates that it is free time

While the idea of free time without a stressful job or an abundance of schoolwork looming over your head may sound like a dream, it can be a nightmare at times. Having a couple of days to decompress is needed for a healthy mind and body. But when too many days go by, it can cause a downward spiral of thoughts and feelings.

As a recent jobless graduate, I was ecstatic to be free from responsibility and take a break from my normal life. That was until I realized just how responsible I had been and needed to be to continue being self-sustained. I learned a few things in this month of unemployment that encouraged me to find a job as soon as possible.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow
Sorina Bindea

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
