Lets smash some goals.

3 Tips For Setting Goals

Okay so we have all had a time where we've been wanting to make our goals but do not know where to start. Setting goals is a very important part to life in every aspect. I feel that it is especially important to set daily and long term goals as well. .

Write Down Where You're Headed



Write down your goals first.

Always know what it is that you want to accomplish. What are your goals and why are you wanting to accomplish them. Then think to yourself are these short term or long term goals to determine what can be accomplished soon and what will take time

Create An Outline

Example of Outline


So you have chosen to set out and accomplish those goals, create an outline to assist you. Creating an outline of your goal and your journey of how you will accomplish this goal is a very important element in your success of smashing your goals. Creating an outline as such

A. Goal~

1. Steps to accomplish

-what is needed

-what will be difficult

-timeline of actions set to accomplish goals

Create an outline of your steps as well as a chronological timeline of your actions that you will take to accomplish your goals.


Helping Hand


While I don't feel that it is necessary for support it is a good element to have to knock out goals. Having someone by your side to encourage you and push you to accomplish your goals is a great way to stay on track . Nothing over the top but just some positive support and feedback are always a good element to have when accomplishing your goals.

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.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

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.
