Thanksgiving As Told By The Weasleys

Thanksgiving As Told By The Weasleys

If the Weasleys celebrated Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays. It's simple with minimal decorations. You get together with family, eat, and watch football or nap. Then the next day, you wake up ridiculously early (or you don't sleep), and you go Black Friday shopping for all of the Christmas presents you haven't bought yet. Though British wizards don't celebrate Thanksgiving, here's what it would be like if they did.

1. Coming home

Finals are fast approaching, but you're ready for a break. You load your car and rush home to eat food that you didn't have to cook, to see your family, and to avoid homework.

2. At first, everything is great

Like every time you've ever come home, it starts out on a good note. Everyone is happy to see each other.

3. Reuniting with your sibling(s)

You fist bump your brother, you guys make fun of each other, and then you go about your separate lives in the same house.

4. Seeing all the family

This is the part where you realize how much you love your family and how important they are to you. It's nice to see them all in the same place.

5. Seeing the people in your family you don't like

This is the part where you're ready to leave again. You acknowledge these people in your family and move on.

6. Dinner

Turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls, stuffing, you load them all onto your plate. Food is definitely something you're thankful for.

7. Some family comes in late

It's always the same people that do this. Everyone is already sitting down and eating dinner when they walk through the door.

8. Someone starts talking politics

You hear the words "Trump," "Democrats," "Republicans" and the tension in the room hits a new level. Your uncles talk about how great Trump is. Your cousins call for impeachment. One of the younger kids keeps chanting "Fake news."

9. The fighting

Politics turns into personal feuds and suddenly, everyone's angry. Grandma calls your cousin a hippie. Grandpa makes some racist comments. Your aunt rants about the gay agenda.

10. Dessert

Then someone steps in and decides it's dessert time. The pies distract from the fighting. You grab a piece of your favorite and second favorite desserts.

11. The food coma

You ate fast so that your stomach wouldn't realize it was full, until now. Time to climb into a recliner and nap.

12. Watching football

With a bunch of kids running around, it's impossible to sleep, so you watch football instead.

13. Black Friday Ads

Your aunts bust out the Black Friday ads. Everyone passes them around, making plans for the next morning. You look just to look.

14. Ready for Christmas

Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, it's time to put up the Christmas tree and blast Christmas songs for a month!

5 Feelings All College Students Experience After Coming Back From Spring Break, As Told By 'Friends'

Could I BE any more bummed out?

Back to school after a well-needed vacation. The last thing we want to do is go back to school after a nice week off, but of course, all good things come to an end and we are bound to come back to reality eventually. As told by the wonderful show, "Friends," here are some feelings we experience as we sync back into school mode.

1. Seeing your friends for the first time since you left

Nothing beats reuniting with your BFFs. Yes, it's only been a week, but a week feels like a lifetime.

2. When the professor doesn't ease us back into learning

Our minds are still at the beach. Whatever the professor is saying is going in one ear and right out the other.

3. When you realize that you have midterms once you get back

Life is still moving faster than we can catch up to. Midterms still exist and they are even worse now that your brain refuses to function.

4. When you're friends fill you in on their spring break adventures

Don't we love sharing the unbelievable adventures of spring break?

5. When the stress of back to school gets to be too much

We're halfway done with the semester and then it's summer vacation! Hang in there, you're almost there!

5 Reasons Why 70-Degree Weather Is 100% Better Than Winter

We've been waiting patiently.

Sorry, winter lovers, there are just some things about 70 degree weather that you just cant beat.

1. The outfits

While this may come as a shock to some people, I have found that many others and myself agree on this point. Once were sick of the weather, everyone boasts about how excited they are to be able to layer cute outfits once again in response to the fall and winter seasons. In reality though, I have spent the whole winter wearing a variety of leggings and crewnecks just about..every single day. I always have high hopes for myself but when it comes down to it, who wants to put on a cold pair jeans when its -10 degrees out?

2. Sunglasses

As a tip to all my lazy readers out there, sunglasses are a lifesaver. Don’t feel like putting on makeup today? Sunglasses are the answer to your prayers. Not only are they stylish, but they allow you to look your best with minimal effort.

3. Easier on your car and the roads

I am so happy and relieved that the cold weather is coming to an end because this means less car problems, less accidents, and less slippery roads. My car has failed me many times this winter due to the dropping temperatures, in addition to being covered in piles of snow.

4. The beach

While I myself split between city trips and beach trips, there’s nothing like a beautiful day out surrounded by good vibes and sunny weather. In the summer, you get to look forwards to beach trips and relaxing days by the shore. Besides, no one goes on vacation in hopes of freezing temperatures.

5. The longer nights

With summer approaching, school comes to an end. Even if you’re the kind of person who hates the heat, there’s no denying we all love the lack of responsibility that accompanies warm months and the weight that lifts off of us from exams, homework, and classes.

Summer, we are SO ready for you.
