My Top 10 Christmas Movies List

Here's 10 movies I will be watching this holiday season that I think you should be watching too:

1) Elf

This is my all time favorite Christmas movie EVER. It doesn't even have to be around the holiday season; I'll still watch it in the middle of July. I'm pretty sure I'm close to memorizing every single word, too. (Don't judge me)

2) A Christmas Story

From the sexy leg lamp Ralph's dad won, to the ugly Pepto Bismol pink bunny rabbit suit Ralph had to put on; there's nothing that can beat this classic.

3) Home Alone

Come on. We all secretly wanted our houses to be robbed when we were 8-years-old so we could be as cool as Kevin McCallister and outsmart stupid burglars and set up traps too...or maybe it was just me.

4) The Grinch

No, not the real life version with Jim Carrey in it. I'm talking about the old fashioned Dr. Seuss version a.k.a the BEST one.

5) Santa Claus

This used to be my all time favorite movie as a kid mainly because I wanted my dad to accidentally make Santa Claus fall off the roof and then magically become him forever so I could live at the North pole and it could be all about Christmas every single day. #goals

6) Jack Frost

In case you're wondering, I'm not talking about the creepy serial killer one from 1996. And for those who didn't know there was a creepy serial killer Jack Frost movie, there is one and I do NOT recommend it. I'm talking about the one that's kind of weird since a snowman comes to life, but the meaning behind it is special. As a child, I didn't truly grasp the concept, but now I do. And I think it's very heartwarming.

7) Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Even though the abominable snowman scared the crap out of me, I low-key wanted Rudolph as a pet because of this movie. #imnotevenjoking

8) The Holiday

I discovered this movie early in the year on Netflix, and now it's one of my favorites! Jack Black, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz and Jude Law are in it as well as many other well known actors. It's the perfect Christmas rom-com if you ask me!

9) Just Friends

Okay, seeing Ryan Reynolds in a fat suit and talking like a creepy obsessed man isn't something you see every day, but it's HILARIOUS because it's so relatable. I highly recommend this one if you're feeling like watching a "stupid" but "romantic" comedy.

10) The Polar Express

And finally, this one finishes off my list. I remember watching this as a kid and hoping the train would stop at my house so I could stay up all night traveling to the North pole to see Santa Claus. *Spoiler Alert* Tom Hanks plays 3 characters in this movie which makes everything about this movie even more amazing.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
