What I Want For Christmas Since I Can't Have Noah Centineo

To All The Santas I've Loved Before, Here's My Christmas List, Since Noah Centineo Won't Fit In My Stocking

"To All The Boys I've Loved Before" on DVD fits though...


It's the most wonderful time of year people, it's Christmas time! As every person both young and old knows, it's time to make lists and go shopping for friends and family, and hope that their credit cards and piggy banks don't turn into barren wastelands. As a broke single college girl, all I can ask for in the world is Noah Centineo, the absolute model of male perfection for so many girls throughout the world.

Now, of course, I can't ask jolly old Saint Nick to abduct Noah and bring him to me for Christmas because that would simply be insane. I guess I'll just have to ask for these other things instead.

1. A Dunkin gift card with, I don't know, a thousand dollars on it?

I'm trying my best to kick the habit, but going to Dunkin is something I rely on because dining hall food actually turns your stomach into slop. Dunkin gets me through 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the library Saturday and Sunday before and during finals, so having a thousand dollar gift card would mean so much!

2. No more fire alarms being triggered at ungodly hours next semester

Stop burning your popcorn and your rice, you obnoxious people. Seriously. I don't appreciate being awoken from my slumber by your foolery. This isn't a stocking stuffer but it would really make my last semester living on campus great.

3. Victorian literature to quench my thirst for 19th Century romance

Sweep me off thine feet, oh handsome but faulted protagonist! I want to smell that new book smell while I dive nose deep into a romance that will make me forget how painfully single I am this holiday season. Jane Austen, I'm looking at you girl.

4. "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" on DVD

Please... It fits in my stocking and everything!

5. "Sweet But Psycho" to stop taking over my brain

Santa, leave me some memory erasing cookie or something because I can't function without listening to this song six times a day. I have a problem Santa, I really do.

6. Fuzzy socks that I can't get enough of

I don't care what they look like or where they are from, but I will ask you to find them and put them in my stocking until it overflows.

7. A French Bulldog puppy

I will name him Brian and if it's a girl her name is Mia. I want one, but two would be great! Please, Santa, they'll fit in my stocking quite well.

8. Scrunchies of all prints and fabrics

Scrunchies are a collector's item for millennial women. They serve as both wrist candy and a means to keep your hair out of your face when you have things to do. I'll take them all.

9. A pretty phone case, even if it's not protective

Something with glitter, or maybe stars or something hipster and trendy because I love to be on point and fashion forward. My phone case right now is cute but she's taking a beating. Time for a new one!

10. Motts Fruit Snacks because I'm addicted

Yes, I am five and no I have no shame in admitting this is one of the best foods in the world. I can eat these as my last meal and I'd die a happy woman.

11. Black high top converse

These are sooooo cute and they'd go with everything I own. So when I want to just dress straight fifty shades of black, these can complete my look.

12. Rest because the bags under my eyes are not designer

My body has taken a beating this semester and I'd love the gift of rest. It's free and it goes to a great cause.

13. Cute winter clothes to stunt on my haters

All of my haters can continue looking like trash while I rise above and look fabulous. Cute clothes are essential and I can always use more, because I always have to look my best, unless its finals, by then I don't care.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

The yearning for a place and people beyond the reach of my fingertips.


For those born and raised outside the borders of the United States, have you ever found yourself going about your daily life and thinking back to your home-county? With all of your favorite and most vivid memories rushing in without much warning, sending you on a rollercoaster of emotion. The ups, the downs, the everything in-between. The life you used to live is now playing itself back in front of your very eyes, and I can't help but feel homesick.

No matter how many years are now separating me from the time I lived in my home country, I will always feel saddened knowing I no longer live there. Yes, I have lived in the United States for more than half of my life, occasionally flying back home to visit family, and yet I always feel as if a small part of me remains on the other side of the world. That small part is what makes me yearn to fly back home-and stay there-, to be reunited with all of my family, and to be surrounded by the language of my people. I miss the way the food tastes; how tap water is better than any bottled water I've had in the states. How the mountains surrounding the city always make for a beautiful view no matter where I'm standing. I miss the guitar players and dancers who light up the city streets with culture and character. Most of all, I miss how much joy I find around me, and within me, when I am back home. There is something indescribable, almost magical, in the way my soul reacts when I step foot off that plane and back into my roots. It's as if the Earth itself grabs hold of me, and brings me close into a tight embrace. As if my home missed me just as much as I missed it. Whether I've been gone for eight years, or two, the unfamiliar quickly becomes familiar, and it feels like I never left. Like I can ask for a refund on my roundtrip flight because I have no desire to fly back to the states.

I feel homesick at the most random times. I could be out with my friends or buried deep in homework, but the memories of home will always find themselves back to me. I get sad for a little while, and it sucks that I cannot snap my fingers and find myself back home in an instant. Nevertheless, I reminisce on the good times and send a prayer up into the skies so I can go back home once more.
