What Should The World Get For Christmas?

What Should The World Get For Christmas?

So I thought that it might be interesting to ask different people what they thought that the world could use for Christmas -- not saying that the world only celebrates Christmas, but it made the question cuter. It's a simple, cliché question, but I wanted to see how people feel about the world right now and if there were #trending sentiments. Here are some answers -- feel free to listen to this as you read.

"More 'Mistletoe' by Justin Bieber."

"Better access to the media and unbiased media sources."

"More puppies because they make everyone happy and they are really cute."

"Gun laws, duh."

"The world could definitely use more hours in a day. You know, for sleeping, doing leisure things, and having sex."

"It may seem cliche, but peace, tolerance, prosperity, and a heavy dose of laughter!"

"The world could use free air fare so that we're able to see the world."

"Better gun laws."

"Scented candles."

"One of those fancy Brookstone fans that goes at the foot of your bed to cool you down while you're sleeping, but for global warming."

"A new music genre, called Paltrock -- for pop, alternative, and rock."

"A reality check. l don't feel as though much has been done to address the violence that has hit a majority of the major countries of this world. I'm aware that these issues are beyond complicated to address, but I think the world should get the ability to face reality."

"I think for Christmas the world needs people to treat each other a little bit better."

"Chicken tenders and matzah ball soup."

"I think the world could really use the gift of security. Right now there are so many domestic and international threats. I think giving people security would be the best Christmas present."

"Inner peace!"

"A day where there are happy headlines in the news."

"A drop-and-go scooter lending system."

"Peace, of course."

What do I think that the world should get for Christmas? I think it should get a stocking with some chill pills, a pair of objective glasses to see what's actually going on, a few laughs, a generation of panda bears, a new DJ Earworm mashup, universal free WiFi, and its two front teeth. The world can be a pretty naughty place, but it can sure as heck also be pretty nice.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
