Winter Break As Told by Gilmore Girls Gifs

It's a Netflix-binging, late afternoon-sleeping, family-visiting, money-spending, friends-seeing kind of season

Winter Break As Told by Gilmore Girls Gifs

1. Home for the holidays — you’re ready to kick back and relax.

2. Netflix becomes your second best friend … after your bed, of course.

3. You realize that you can’t actually relax yet though because you haven’t started doing any Christmas shopping ... 

4.… which is extremely difficult when you’re a poor college kid. 

5. SO you’re looking for the best deals and getting creative, summoning your crafty side so you don’t need to break the bank.

6. Suddenly, you realize how thankful you are for home-cooked meals: yummy and free. 

7. You realize one of the ultimate challenges is trying to find the perfect balance between family, high school friends, and college friends.

8. Then you realize everything closes at around 10 p.m., which is NOT what you’re used to. 

9. Extended family comes to town and starts asking you all sorts of questions that you don’t want to answer.

10. Christmas day makes you feel like a kid again. 

11. Then New Year’s rolls around (rather quickly) and you’re ready to celebrate with your friends.

12. Towards the end of break, the boredom starts to really set in …

13. You become torn between wanting to go back but not wanting to have responsibilities again. 

14. When you finally make it back, being reunited with your friends is the best feeling in the world.

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.
