Why I Love Christmas Time

Christmas: it's the most wonderful time of the year. There is a certain spirit in the air once it is the day after Thanksgiving. People seem to be happier. The streets have a different glow about them. And everything just seems to be better.

There are many reasons as to why I love Christmas. One is the whole atmosphere of Christmas time. I love how people seem happier to see one another. I love how the music in the air is music that nearly everyone knows and sings along to. I love the repeat movies that play over and over on television. It just brings a certain happiness and content among me. It's like a seasonal happiness. One that only the Christmas season can bring.

Another reason I love Christmas time is the memories it brings. Whether they are memories from when you were five or they are memories waiting to happen. Everyone has memories from Christmas. It could be that you remember getting that doll when you six. It could be that you remember getting your first car when you were sixteen. It could be that you remember how much you love that one aunt's green bean casserole or that dessert your cousin makes. Christmas is a time for memories to be made after all.

Another reason I love the Christmas season is the reason we have it. The reason we have it is the most important reason of all. We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. A lot of people tend to forget that and focus more on the gifts. But it is a time when we should come together to celebrate Jesus's birth. I remember being in the church's play of the story of Jesus. It is one of my fondest memories of Christmas time.

I love Christmas. There is no doubt about it. And there are tons of reasons to love it. Everyone has their own, and that is what makes Christmas time so amazing.

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.
