​11 Reasons Why Winter Is The Greatest Season

Since I was a little kid, winter was always my favorite season. Unfortunately, I've always been in the minority in that regard, as most of my friends and family have always loved fall. Now, it's time to settle the debate once and for all. For all my winter lovers out there, this is why you're right!

1. It's the holiday season!

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or just the Winter Solstice, everyone has a reason to celebrate and be happy with the people they love and cherish.

2. Greater generosity

For a multitude of reasons, everyone seems to be way more generous and giving during the winter. It's an inspiring thing to see everyone show off their kindness; after all, no one wants to be a Scrooge!

3. It's cold!

If you're like me then you love the cold weather but live in Texas, a state where 8 out of the 12 months are spent sweating through your shirt. However, for a few glorious weeks, we get to revel in the cold weather!

4. Cute winter clothes!

During all the cold weather, you finally have an excuse to break out your long sleeves, sweaters, beanies, fuzzy socks, and mittens. It's the best possible aesthetic, and only comes around in winter!

5. Fire

There's something really cozy about a fire, whether its in a fireplace at home or a campfire outdoors, there's just a really nice feeling of having a warm beacon of flame during those cold winter months.

6. Snuggling under blankets

My personal favorite part of winter is being able to wrap myself like a burrito in every blanket I can find and still be the perfect temperature!

7. Cookies, candies, and sweets galore!

There are tons and tons of holiday cookie recipes out there for baking, and so many different holiday themed treats to buy if you're not the baking type. Either way, the sweets are here for the cold season!

8. Gift giving

Many people celebrate winter holidays by exchanging gifts with friends and family. While it will be a little more difficult this year from COVID, you'll still be able to show all those awesome people how much you care about them; what could possibly be better this season!

9. Snow

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.

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.
