24 Things Everyone Needs To Remember
Ocean Waves

People, as a whole, can be destructive. It's pretty clear to see. People tend to be harder on themselves than anyone else is and we often forget a lot of simple things that would help us so much if we kept them in our minds and lived by them. People need to treat themselves better and I believe these are a few things to remember when doing so.

1. It's okay to treat yourself once in a while.

2. It's okay to be afraid.

3. It's okay to not be in a relationship.

4. Let yourself get hopeful and excited, don't hold back too much

5. It's actually good to have goals and dreams.

6. It's fine if you have bad days.

7. It's fine if you want something different for yourself than others want for you.

8. You're allowed to help yourself some before you help others.

9. You're allowed to take care of yourself period.

10. You don't always have to have everything planned out all the time.

11. People are always more willing to help than you think they'll be.

12. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

13. Don't bottle up your emotions for too long.

14. You don't know what's going on in other peoples' lives.

15. Taking chances doesn't have to be as scary as it seems.

16. You're human, you have limits.

17. Don't push yourself past those limits.

18. You aren't weak for having limits. You're just human.

19. The smallest act of kindness really can make a huge difference.

20. Serving others is a good way to help yourself heal.

21. It's healthy to take a break when you feel like you need one.

22. You truly are so much stronger than you think you could ever be.

23. You made it this far, you can keep going.

24. Your mistakes don't define you as long as you learn from them.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
