Not all of them are unrealistic..

Things College Students Really Want for Christmas

It's finals week, and amidst my exams and the coming holiday, people keep asking me what I want for Christmas. If only we busy college students had time to think about Christmas, much less care about receiving gifts rather than just spending some quality time with the fam. Life has been so crazy this semester that I can't help but be excited for a break and time to really enjoy what I can't experience at school.

Good home cooked food

This requires no explanation. No matter how good your caf food is, it's never as good as a home cooked meal.

More free time

To sleep, see your family or just think, we can all agree that we'd love it if we had more time to just chill.

Transport to classes in the cold

Maybe it's just me, but I would rather run to class than have to walk through this terrible cold weather. NO THANKS. We could all probably invest in a solid scooter..

Thicker walls

This means everyone can laugh, be loud, and jam to music to their heart's content.

Good wifi

While you probs wont be using wifi at home to study.. it would still be nice to watch Netflix or whatever you do at much faster speeds.

Hamilton on DVD

So maybe we could experience this at school, but it just needs to exist in general ok?

Endless amounts Qdoba

Needless to say, everyone loves Qdoba, and everyone wants it all the time. Hook your fav college student up with a gift card or something and we will love you forever.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
