What College Kids Appreciate The Most When Coming Home For Winter Break

The sound of Winter break is calling our names, here's to no more school for six weeks, no more studying, no more reading pointless text book readings, and no more blowing 50 dollars at the bar every weekend and we get to relax for SIX WEEKS. Coming home after 4+ finals is probably the best early Christmas present you can receive. Sometimes, we get so caught up in our life at college we always forget to appreciate the little things when we come home such as...

Not having to listen to the music blasting up stairs 24 hours straight from our lovely frat boy roommates

...like shouldn't you be studying?

Not having to take out the garbage

What a relief !

Washing the dishes and putting them in the dishwasher

If I have to wash another dish my hand may fall off

Not having to spend 100 dollars at Wegmans every week for groceries

My bank account will be happy about this

Having a clean kitchen, living room, and bathroom

so basically living in a clean house

Cuddling with your dog every night.


Home cooked meals and having your parents take you out to dinner

FEED ME PLEASE, I need a filet mignon

Coming home to all the holiday decorations

cause it's the most wonderful time of the year!

Getting to see all your extended family & high school friends

I miss you, I miss you, I miss you, and no I still don't know what I want to do after I graduate

Being able to watch a whole week of Netflix and not moving from your bed

Grey's Anatomy I will finish you this Winter break and become an emotional train wreck.

Binge eating all the holiday left overs

More lasagna and cookies, the better.

Having your mom do your laundry


Knocking off some of the lbs since you won't be drinking seven nights a week

Hopefully all the binge eating I do will make me skinny.

Getting the perfect amount of time to spend with you family and being pampered

Family time is the best time.

What do you appreciate the most on winter break?

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.
