10 Reasons Why Being An Aunt Is A Blessing
Emmy Connor

Being an aunt is so much cooler than most could imagine for so many reasons!

1. I get to stay young longer because my little Tuck will always keep me on my toes.

Playing endless games with cars and dinosaurs is the best. Not to mention, I have someone who will always be silly with me.

2. Even though my sweet nephew is such a handful, I'm so thankful to have him.

He is wild but he also has the sweetest little heart.

3. I have a mini best friend.

Yes, I know I'm his best friend because he sure tells me every time we are together, "you're my best friend" and "I love you." Neither of these statements get old.

4. I get emotional sometimes because I think about how much he's taught me.

Because of him, I've learned patience and know what it feels like to provide guidance for him. He's three but a strong three who knows everything he wants and I love that because I have similar characteristics.

5. He often reminds me of myself.

I love being able to look at his little brown-eyed, gap-toothed face because my grin is so goofy, too. I sometimes feel like I'm looking into a mirror.

6. When I am able to get his attention and he listens and is obedient, I don't feel powerful.

Instead, I feel as if I am helping contribute to his good behavior.

7. My brother and sister-in-law have created a precious little angel.

I welcome him open-armed every time I get to see him.

8. I have built-in lunch/ dinner dates.

Tuck has been my sit-in many times when everyone else was busy. Not to mention, he's so well-mannered that he and I both get compliments when we go out together.

9. I feel like we think along the same wavelength.

He's very bright and so smart so our conversations are lengthy and very interesting. I love to hear his funny little thoughts that always have me laughing.

10. Tucker is a piece of my heart that will never be replaced by anything and I couldn't imagine this sweet life without his hard-headed self.

Oftentimes I forget how blessed I am and Tucker is my sweet reminder on how truly blessed I really am. For this and this alone I am so very thankful.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
