This holiday season will definitely look different with COVID-19 still in the air as well as no vaccine ready to be sent out to the public yet. However, it is still important to keep the romance alive.

1. Baking Christmas Cookies

I love sweet treats, and baking Christmas cookies at home together will spread Christmas cheer.

2. Watch Hallmark Movies Together

The Hallmark channel is known for its cheesy holiday movies and will be a great resource when it's cold outside, including a great time to cuddle and eat popcorn and hot chocolate.

3. Make TikToks

Making TikToks together is a great way to stay indoors and stay trendy and maybe even become viral and "TikTok famous."

4. Make Gingerbread Houses

Another creative, cheap and yummy idea that will keep you all laughing and having fun for hours.

5. Make Snowmen and Snow Angels

If you are lucky enough to be in an area where it snows, you can go outside on your lawn and build snowmen and snow angels together! Snow is one of the best and most wonderful parts of winter anyway.

6. Make your own Ugly Christmas Sweaters

You and your significant other can have an ugly Christmas Sweater contest that you all can make yourselves. The ideas and possibilities are endless.

7. Christmas Carol karaoke

Buy a karaoke machine and sing your heart out together with some of the most famous Christmas Carols such as "Baby It's Cold Outside."

8. Christmas Cocktails

For those 21 and over, couples can make their own Christmas cocktail recipes at home and have their own tasting to see which ones they love the best.

9. Take Cute Holiday Photos

Perfect to still do at home: get dressed up and post on social media.

10. Make a holiday inspired meal together

Show off your holiday cooking skills and make some peppermint bark for dessert and a holiday ham or maybe some figgy pudding.

11. Read Christmas Stories Together

Some classics are "Twas The Night Before Christmas" and "A Christmas Carol."

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
