Yes, It's November, And Yes, I Am Ready For Christmas

"Christmas isn't just a day, it's a frame of mind." -"Miracle On 34th Street" (1947)


As I write this, it is November 7th, 2019, and one week ago, it was Halloween. But when the clock struck midnight on November 1st, I felt the Christmas spirit rush through my veins!

It felt so good. It's that time of year again.

Don't get me wrong, I love Thanksgiving. It's delicious and I am especially thankful for everything on Thanksgiving. But that is a one-day holiday where we dress all fancy just to walk around the house, then sit down for a large meal that will straight up put you in a food coma easily. In as little as 30 minutes, dinner is over.

Christmas, however, is not just a holiday on December 25th, no no no. Christmas is so much more.

Christmas is walking through the mall and watching people go crazy for the hottest toy of the year. Christmas is going to Starbucks and drinking their holiday drinks way too much. Christmas is putting up the tree with your family while there are cookies in the oven.

Christmas is however and whenever YOU celebrate it.

You know what? That is okay!

Christmas takes some time to prep for, so while there are people who want to rush all their Christmas festivities, just know you've been able to enjoy your Christmas season because you've been celebrating since November.

Honestly, that is just so smart of you.

But if you are so anti-Christmas until December 1st, then fine. But for those of us who are ready to take part in all things Christmas, go for it.

Blast your Christmas playlist. Watch your favorite Christmas movies. Decorate your house. Whatever you want to do, just do it, and do not let those negative Nancys put a damper on your holiday spirit.

So, from me to you, let's get our Christmas on!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
