This Holiday Season I Remember To Let You Know I Care

Standing under the mistletoe, lighting the menorah together and reciting holy prayers, holding hands and vowing to always love each other, are qualities that make the holiday season something to look forward to. The holiday season reminds us that we will be around people who care about us. The people who tell us the funniest jokes, the people who kiss us, hug us, and tell us we are special, those are the ones I am talking about.

In American, we have a variety of people who celebrate during the holiday season. Whether religious or not, all that matters is an excuse to be around people who care for you.

There is a myth out there that says that suicide rates are at their highest in December. But, "Psychology Today," writes that this is false. You would think that since a lot of people can't be around their loved ones during the holidays, suicide rates would be higher. Surprisingly, the suicide rate peaks in the springtime rather than the winter time.

Although Psychology Today might claim that suicide rates do not increase over the holidays, do not take this as a given. Some people may still find the urge to end their life; you must convince them not to do so. Therefore, suicide is occurring and it is not a myth during the holiday season. People nearest to you might feel lonely, scared or confused. You must be aware that they can be gone any moment.

The ones who you loved so much, the ones who used to hold your hands, be there for you when you cried, made you laugh, can be gone just like that.

As a reminder, treasure the people who make you smile in your life. Remind them that they are special and that they are worth time to be reminded of their worth.


Call them:

Tell them that they are wonderful and ask them about their day if you can't be with them.

Send them a text:

Text them and wish them a "Merry Christmas," a "Happy Hanukkah," or a "Good Morning."

Write Them a Letter:

Write them and say they are worth your time and more. You can even draw them silly pictures. If they are your lifelong partner and they can't be with you during the holidays, write them and tell them that you look forward to seeing their beautiful smile next time you see them.

Going to Visit Them:

Be with the people who count. Don't leave anyone alone during the holidays. Do anything you can to show them that you care. That is all you can do right?

Remind your loved ones that you want to spend your special moments with them. You want to kiss them when the clock sticks midnight, you want to dance with them, drink all the beer in the house, invite the neighbors over, drink their beer and you want to do all of this the following year. Tell them that you want to create priceless moments with them. In the blink of an eye, life as you knew it can be over. It can cease to exist. Loving smiles that you once shared will only be memories. But all you can do is make the time you have with these special people count.

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.
