Thanksgiving break is finally here, and I would cry tears of joy, but I'm too tired!

Thanksgiving Break, as depicted by Friends.

Thanksgiving Break is finally here, and students are rejoicing. I, for one, have never been so ready for a break in my entire life. I'm ready to relax and pretend I don't have any responsibilities for a few days! (Key word- pretend) Here's a brief overview of what this week will consist of for me:

1. Sleep

I have personally never been so tired, and I cannot wait to sleep without feeling like I'm neglecting some type or commitment or assignment that I could be working on.

2. Non-Caf Food

I cannot over stress my excitement for some home-cooked food. The caf throws my stomach all out of whack, and it'll be nice to enjoy a meal without feeling like I spent an hour inhaling air, followed by scrounging around the dorm for more food.

3. Family

I'm not one to typically get "home sick," but this year I am going to love on my family until they're pushing me out the door and back to school. I've missed them.

4. Baggy Clothes

Thanksgiving is not the day for my finest attire. The only curve I plan on showing off is my food baby from all that turkey, and don't forget the pecan pie!

5. And Of Course, the Embarrassing Moments

Every family gathering has those inevitable embarrassing moments, whether it's an uncalled-for belch at the dinner table, an open fly during a family photo, or that awkward smile you hold when your not-so-familiar relative is asking you questions or cracking jokes that you honestly do not understand. The best thing to do is embrace them all!

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
