10 Things College Students Do When They Get Home For Winter Break

Let's be honest... no one is more excited for you to be home than your dog.

10 Things College Students Do When They Get Home For Winter Break
The Odyssey Online

Going home for winter break and not having to worry about school for a few weeks is the one thing that keeps you sane during finals week.

The prospect of having some time to be lazy and not have responsibilities is both comforting and exciting. Every college kid knows what this hope feels like - and every college kid has one thing in mind that they cannot wait to do the second they get home. Here are the top 10 things college kids are planning to do the second they get home.

1. Play with your dog

Let's be honest... no one is more excited for you to be home than your dog.

2. Spend time with your family

Don't deny it, you missed them too.

3. Cry tears of joy

The excitement of being home can be quite overwhelming

4. Collapse on your bed

Dorm beds just don't cut it anymore

5. Eat a home-cooked meal

Mom's cooking > Caf pizza

6. Take a bubble bath

Lush bath bombs anyone?

7. Binge-watch mindless T.V. shows

Because now you can blow 12 hours of your day on nothing and not feel guilty

8. Bake chocolate chip cookies

There is something oddly comforting about the smell of chocolate chip cookies

9. Unpack your car but leave everything in your living room and never actually put anything away

It is just not worth it to really unpack when you can just leave all your stuff scattered around the house

10. Burn your old homework

Don't deny it; you want to light those calculus assignments on fire and watch them burn. Just the thought of looking at them anymore makes you cringe

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.

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.
