If you have to work during the holidays, it can be an absolute nightmare. It's busy, it's crowded, and people can get really mean. All you want is to be home with your family and enjoying the holiday. To all my fellow holiday retail peeps, the craziness is almost over, and we'll get through this. To cheer you up, here's twenty Spongebob gifs that perfectly describe the "interesting" experience that is working during the holidays.

1. When your manager explains how busy the holidays will be...as if your experienced self doesn't know.

2. When there are several holiday displays all over the store...and you don't even know where they are.

3. When you're asked to work overtime, but you really need the money...

4. ...Or when you don't need the overtime and you hope someone else volunteers. 

Giphy

5. When your boss is actually very appreciative of your hard work. 

Giphy

6. When you actually get to leave early on Christmas Eve.

7. Or when your boss actually lets you have off on Christmas Eve.

Giphy

10. But those extra holiday hours are pretty nice, too.

11. When a customer asks for a product you ran out of because your manager never ordered it. 

Giphy

12. Only for the customer to be furious with you even though it's not your fault. 

Giphy

13. When your manager asks you to something...while you're in the middle of doing something. 

Giphy

14. When customers are being annoyingly indecisive. 

Giphy

15. The attitude you have when you have to deal with the last-minute Christmas Eve rush. 

Giphy

16. When your coworker gives you one of those awesome holiday treat bags. 

Giphy

17. When a customer asks for twenty party platters to be picked up the next morning.

Giphy

19. When a customer is messing up the perfect display you worked so hard on.

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.
