5 Thoughts You Have Now That Christmas Is Over

New Year's is just around the corner!

5 Thoughts You Have Now That Christmas Is Over

Christmas is a time of celebration and coming together with the people you love. Now that the day is behind us, it is time to think about what is next and to reflect on the previous days. Here are 5 thoughts you may have in the days following Christmas:

"I wonder when I will see them next"


Christmas is a time to see people you don't see very often. Outside of the holidays, you may not see these people for months or even a year. It all depends on the family and the individual.

"Time to lose that weight"


People always joke that they need to go to the gym after Christmas from eating all of that food. All the delicious food at Christmas might have put on a few pounds.

"There's only 52 weeks until next Christmas"


The countdown has begun. We only have a year until next Christmas. Is it too late to start planning now?

"Time to go back to work"


Most people have off Christmas (in reality everyone should but that is another story) and have to return to work the next day. Now that the holiday is over, it is time to resume your day-to-day activities. On the bright side, New Year's is only one week again.

"Time to return those unwanted gifts"


Christmas brings presents, good and bad. Some people like to return gifts they know they will not use. After Christmas shopping is almost as busy as before Christmas.

Christmas is over but the fun does not have to end. Prepare for the new year and think ahead to 2020.

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.
