15 Of A Few Of My Favorite Things I Love About The Winter

Since the season of winter will be approaching soon, I wanted to share the many things I love about the winter season. Here are 15 reasons I love the winter weather:

1. Hot drinks/foods

It’s time for hot chocolate and baking Christmas cookies!

2. Sweaters and Scarves

I adore fall/winter fashion. Who doesn't look to dress comfy in sweaters and feel beautiful?

3. Holiday season

Who doesn’t love the holidays? Christmas and New Years is next and it’s the best time of the year.

4. TV shows

All my favorite TV shows start their new seasons around this time which is wonderful because I hate being left on cliffhangers! Also, who doesn’t love Christmas specials?

5. The leaves and the snow

Once the leaves start falling something about it is so pretty and mesmerizing. Besides the scenery, I love the feeling of walking the leaves that fall and when it snows it looks like winter wonderland.

6. It gets cozy

I’m a big fan of blankets and being winter is a great excuse to bring them out.

7. Christmas lights and light festivals

This time of the year just makes everything look beautiful.

8. Building a snowman and snow angels

I used to do this when I was younger on the first day of snow.

9. Making paper snowflakes

Making winter DIYs, in general, is so much fun!

10. Ice skating

It’s a better feeling ice skating outdoors with the cold and the pretty scenery.

11. Wearing fuzzy socks

Wearing anything fuzzy is a plus.

12. Decorating a gingerbread house

Either baking gingerbread cookies or decorating gingerbread houses, it’s a fun activity to do with friends and family

13. Burning candles

There’s some cozy feeling about burning candles in the winter versus any other season.

14. No bugs

This is my personal favorite.

15. Holiday movies and songs

We all love 25 days of Christmas and Michael Buble.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
