Morgantown can be one of the best places and one of the worst places. On the weekends it's a vibrant place where you can go out with friends and party your weekday worries away, but what about those weeknights when you are stressing out over a test or a project and need to take some time off?

1. Go eat

One of my favorite things about Morgantown is the food. There are an abundance of good restaurants where students can stress eat their way through the year. Hello, Freshman 15!

2. Go for a walk on the Rail Trail

Pick a buddy and walk down along the river with them. While the area can get a little sketchy, it really is a pretty area on a nice afternoon.

3. Go to the rec

I always believe that a good workout can really help relax me whenever I'm feeling overwhelmed. It helps me get motivated and push past the writer's block that I have. It may seem intimidating in some rooms (thanks to meathead guys who choose to take up all the weights), but in the end, it is a really relieving activity.

4. Go to Cooper's Rock

With several trails to go on, you can spend hours out at Coopers Rock. If you are still feeling stressed out and need more things to do other than going to the overlook, go to Ravens Rock for an even better view.

5. Go to Cheat Lake

Cheat Lake is extremely beautiful, and if you need somewhere with some silence to just relax, I highly recommend Cheat Lake.

6. Visit the Art Museum

Out on Evansdale is the Art Museum here at WVU. The exhibits that they have are interesting and often change. Go here for some inspiration for your work.

7. Watch a movie

A movie is always a good way to clear your mind. While it may seem super common, it really does help.

8. Go sit out on the green

Outside of the lair is the green. More often than not, you can see a couple cute dogs running around outside there, and how stress relieving is that?

9. Go sit out in front of Woodburn

The sight of Woodburn alone is enough to de-stress anyone. It's a beautiful building, and on a nice day you can sit outside and get some relaxation time in.

10. Go Downtown

High Street is good for more than just going out on the weekends. There are many cute shops and resturants that you can go to for fun on the weekdays.

11. Get a milkshake

My all time favorite place to get a milkshake is Tailpipes. Their cereal milkshakes are the absolute best.

12. Cry

If all else fails, it never hurts to have a nice cry. It may not fix anything, but hey.

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!"
