Holiday To-Do List: Things That Students Will Do During the Holiday Season

I am pretty sure that all of us have done at least some of these things during the holiday season. Hopefully you can relate to many of them but if not... well, BLAST!!

1. Count down the number of days/sleeps/exams/assignments until your Christmas holidays begin and post such information in real-time on all possible forms of online communication such as: MSN Messenger, Facebook, etc.

2. Travel back home via bus, train, or a ride in someone's car who you may or may not know. The further the drive, the more the excitement builds about Santa's night of annual delivery.

3. Get together with your old high school friends and try to one-up each other through the telling of various irresponsible feats accomplished at university/college such as: who drank the most in the shortest period of time, the best phallic-shaped snow sculpture, number of exams that were failed/slept through, and how you're so smart you don't even feel compelled to attend class.

4. Try and act all smart in front of your relatives during Christmas get-togethers while your father keeps asking what good a degree in philosophy will accomplish. Coincidentally, he'll call you a "dumbass" in true Red Forman fashion.

5. Warm up to your Grandmother and tell her about how much you're learning and experiencing new "things" at university. As soon as she's tickled pink with attention, you'll quickly sneak in a request for more money (because you love her).

6. Pack up lots of leftover holiday dinner in containers to take back to residence. You'll be sure to guard it with your life and attempt to ration it as far as possible (less original cooking for you that way).

7. Count down the number of days/sleeps until your Christmas holidays are over and post such information in real-time on all possible forms of online communication such as: MSN Messenger, Facebook, etc.

Happy holidays and Merry Christmas, everyone!

P.S. 3 more sleeps until Santa comes!

You're fortunate to be able to have Christmas with Grandmother, and to snuggle up to her for some dough. I never had that luxury. No, never had the grandparents over for Christmas. They lived over the big pond, some 7,000 miles away. What can I say but enjoy family.
