We believe in you. Make it through the final sprint of 2016 by binge-watching Syfy's The Magicians, and keep the holiday magical.

1. Don't tell the truth when your parents ask you what you've been up to at school:

The truth will NOT set you free.

2. Distract your mom with wine when she asks about your grades:

Foolproof.

3. Develop baller camouflage techniques for when Christmas parties get to be overwhelming:

Introverts of the world UNITE.

4. Take advantage of the limitless Christmas food at your parents' house and achieve new levels of cookie consumption:

You can't answer your dad's questions about why you're still single when your mouth is full of gingerbread, FYI.

5. Get into the *spirits* of the season:

SO. MUCH. SPIRITS.

6. When you run into people from HS, try to act normal and pretend it's not crazy awkward:

"Hi Kevin! How've you been since I told you I loved you freshman year of high school? I'VE BEEN REALLY GREAT. JUST GREAT."

7. Sleep as much as physically possible:

You probably have a lot to catch up on, and it doesn't get better than bed.

8. Try to convince your old friends that college has made you more mature and wordly:

YOU'RE AN ADULT NOW GODDAMMIT.

9. Try to ignore that the holidays can feel long AF:

It only makes it worse.

10. Camp out on the couch with hot cocoa, popcorn, and an entire season of something addictive:

It's where you were meant to be.
