9 Winter Break Activities That Are Sure To Keep Boredom Away

Looking for a few things to do this winter break to keep you from drowning in boredom? Check these ideas out!

1. Get a job. 

This is a great way to stay busy while also making a little extra cash before going back to school. Just try to get a job that you will actually enjoy working at so it doesn't end up ruining your fun over break!

2. Catch up with old friends.

Going home over winter break is the best time to catch up with some old friends from high school! Although everyone's schedules may be crazy, try to just go out to lunch sometime to catch up!

3. Go to a holiday light show.

Although you may have to do this early on over winter break, try to get to a light show or display before Christmas! It will be so festive and its always fun to go and take in all the beautiful lights with a few friends or significant other.

4. Do your hobby. 

You love playing basketball? Join a winter league! Want to knit a scarf? Do it!! Finally, take some time for your self and do something that you love doing but never have time to do during the school year.

5. Read a book. 

You'll finally have enough time to curl up by the fire and read that book that has been sitting on your shelf all year!

6. Go to the city.

If you live near the city, spend a day in the city!! There is always so much to do and its always decorated so nice for the holiday season.

7. Visit family. 

If you have family members that you only get to see a few times a year, take some time over break to go and visit them! It is also a great excuse to travel if they live far!

8. Take an online class. 

Although you just finished the semester and school work may be the last thing on your mind it is a great time to get ahead in your coursework!

9. Binge watch an entire TV series. 

I think this one speaks for its self and it's always a great option.

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.
