How to make every second count  10/12/18

If you only a minute left to live what would you do with it? Would you call your parents? Would you try to find a way to get more time? Would you apologize for all the bad things you ever have done? This is a question I ask to make you think about what you do with your time every single day.

What really matters in the last minute of your life? All the things that you accomplished? Did you make an impact on the world? Will anybody remember you once you're gone? All these questions will only be answered with how we use our time which a lot of us take for granted, let me ask you.

Do you use it to the fullest extent or do you waste it trying to come up with excuses for why you're not doing what you've always wanted to do? A lot of us find each other somewhere in the middle of these questions due to our different circumstances and situations that we go through. Which I can understand but that shouldn't be an excuse to waste the time that we have. For a lot of us we were not taught to take advantage of our time, people older than us say: "Oh you're young and you have plenty of time." However, we actually have no idea how much time we have left.

As I got older I learned time management is not something that's taught in our culture but we all learn. So as your spending your time reading this remember to take advantage of as much time as possible! We could only have a couple months or weeks to do what we've always dreamed of, so don't spend any more time letting things waste away or being too afraid to go for it.

So now that we're at the end of this article, think about it. If you died right now, would you be satisfied?

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall.
