27 Things I Need To Thank My Roommate For
Abby Sannizzaro

After living through my freshman year of college there are a lot of things I should be thanking my roommate for. You're the best roomie!

Thank you for....

  1. Getting up at 11pm when I feel like going on an adventure.
  2. Driving two hours to a different state at midnight with me because too many people suddenly became annoying.
  3. Listening to me when something hard has happened, hugging me as I cry, and even crying with me.
  4. Making me laugh with stupid videos on Twitter.
  5. Finishing the food on my plate that I always waste.
  6. Making me a better person.
  7. Stopping me from doing something stupid.
  8. Freaking out about exams with me when we forget what chapter it is on.
  9. Putting up with the fact that I can never find matching socks, and lending me your own when I can only find one clean one.
  10. Being my partner every time we play a game.
  11. Counting sheep with me when we can’t fall asleep and laughing with me when I suddenly remember something funny and say the line, “Remember that time…” in the middle of the night.
  12. Ordering Chinese food with me when we really shouldn’t be.
  13. Watching, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants three nights in a row because I felt like it was a must at that point in my life.
  14. For listening to my pun jokes that for some reason only I think are funny.
  15. Telling it like it is.
  16. Not always agreeing with me and actually giving me an opinion.
  17. Telling me when I look dumb and need to change.
  18. Listening to me rant.
  19. Helping me with my math homework when I’m sitting there pulling my hair out.
  20. Being part of my family and ranting to them like you do to me.
  21. Being a friend that builds me up and doesn’t tear me down.
  22. Running around like an idiot with me, taking couch cushions from the lobby to make beds for guests.
  23. Not smacking me every time I got pumped that there was a tour and yelled at them to come to our school.
  24. Not getting mad when I laugh at you for tripping in the busiest sections of campus.
  25. All the heart to hearts, the life stories and the funny moments.
  26. Making college what it is.
  27. Being my best friend, I can’t thank you enough.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
