With COVID-19 still an issue, we won't be able to spend Valentine's Day the same way we did last year. We've celebrated just about every holiday in a quarantine style fashion, and Valentine's Day is the only holiday left besides St. Patrick's Day that missed the mark. Unfortunately, that means romantic gestures might have to be done a little differently. Romantic dinners out probably won't be the move for most couples this year, but that doesn't mean you have to throw out celebrating the whole holiday in general. There are plenty of fun at-home ideas you can put together for you and your special valentine to enjoy. Here are just a few of them.

1. Throw some aprons on and have a pizza making date.


Take my word for it, the aprons will come in handy as flour will most definitely be flung everywhere. Clean up will pale in comparison to how much fun you'll have cooking together.

2. Build a fort and watch a funny rom-com together.


A simply classic option. Grab some comfy pjs and whole lot of pillows and enjoy a cozy movie night in with your sweetheart.

3. Plan a high stakes, high rewards game night!


Whether it's a series of card games, board games, or an intense round of Mario Kart, set up some rules and add some stakes. Loser pays for dinner!

Whatever you do decide to partake in this holiday, make sure you are spending it with the one who you the love most and of course, stay safe while doing so. Happy Valentine's Day!

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
