Everyone loves a good Christmas movie during the holiday season. Christmas Hallmark movies have always been a favorite thing for me to watch. I absolutely LOVE Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel and, for anyone who knows me, they know I watch the Hallmark Channel A LOT. I especially enjoy the romance Christmas movies because I’ve always been a big romance movie lover. Over Thanksgiving Break, I went to a good friend’s house and my guy friend said, “Oh my gosh, you changed ESPN to the Hallmark Channel.” After listening to his complaining and switching back and forth to the Hallmark Channel to ESPN when it went to commercials, he ended up watching the Hallmark movies with me. I said, “Oh, so look who is interested in the Hallmark Christmas movies now?” I am going to list six of my favorite Hallmark Christmas movies for you and a summary of what they are about.

In February, I turned eighteen and the truth is, I have yet to buy a lottery ticket and I almost missed my chance to vote in the upcoming election.

I know many people my age are thrilled that they finally get to have a say in the world of politics on November 6 and I am, well, not as thrilled. Do not get me wrong: I am grateful for every sacrifice that has been made to ensure my right to vote, especially knowing the history of women’s suffrage. It is humbling to know that people were willing to risk their lives so I could have the right to vote.

It is now time in the school year where everything gets stressful. You might even have assignments due every single day of the week and wonder, ‘When might I ever get a break?’ Some of the past weeks have been very stressful on me and they are not slowing down either.

But every once in a while, the week’s tasks get to be a little too much for anybody and we all need something to get us through the week.

Now that everyone has gone back to college and midterms are approaching, I’m sure you are already bombarded with loads and loads of homework just like I am. The University of Lynchburg began classes just two months ago and in just the first three days of class, it is safe to say that I feel like my brain is fried from the numerous readings and quizzes thus far. While I am excited to be taking these classes this year, which apply to both my major and minor, I did not fully realize the intensity and challenge I had signed up for.

We are now two months into the semester, and I think we all know it is not going to get easier, even though we wish it would. The assignments, essays, homework, quizzes, exams, and laundry are all piling up. The 24 hours we get each day seem to be getting shorter and shorter. The bags under our eyes are getting darker.
