10 Things I Loved About My Small Private School

If you went to a small Private School, you will understand how different it was. Looking back, I realize how grateful I was to go to this school and I would never change it for the world.

1. You knew everybody

I could walk down the hall and know everybody's name. I knew what people liked to do and where they were from.

2. Your graduating class were like brother and sisters

My class, being only 45 students, I can assure you was small. However, no matter the size, the bond between you and your graduating class is like no other. We had been going to school for thirteen years or more.

3. My teachers cared about who I was and how I was doing

My teachers knew about me and would ask about my game the night before. They check on me to this day and it is just another whole support system for me.

4. We may have a small fan base, but it was loud and crazy.

DIVISION DOES NOT MATTER. Our fan section was always lit and I would not have wanted to play for any other team.

5. They prepared me for college

Along with all the great memories on the field and in the halls; the classroom was incredible. It helped me transition to college more than I could ever imagine.

6. They instilled in me, solid morals and beliefs

They taught me so much about life that went beyond the books. I owe my small private so much for making me who I am.

7. When you visit it is like you never left

When you walk in, the memories flow like crazy. Also, the teachers and students are so happy to see you, it feels as though you never left the halls.

8. It was a second home.

I spent so much time there over my 13 years it was a second home. They were and always will be another family. The bond between students faculty and families is one that is so hard to describe.

9. The Dress Code

Hear me out here. Nobody likes a dress code. However, there are a lot of benefits to having one. One, it builds up your closet and two, your "slack effort" in high school is the college standard of dressing. Trust me, in high school it stunk, but I see the point now.

10. Being a part of so many activities

My high school encouraged me to be on three sports teams and to partake in 3 clubs and to take 4 leaderships positions. It helps you with time management and get to learn different perspectives of life when you go to college.

11. Diversity

There were students from different states, but also different countries. It showed me so much about the world that I could never have imagined learning anywhere else.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.
