We all know that college is hard. The constant environment of studying and learning can wear even the best out. Here are seven blessings being on break can have.


The biggest blessing of break is the rejuvenation of endless hours sleeping. Especially if you have tests right before that break.These breaks are good for you to catch up on the much needed and much missed essential sleep.

2. Home-made food

After several dinners of various pasta options and microwaved meals, home-made food is one of the best blessings. Whether it's just baked mac and cheese or chicken cordon bleu, eating something that doesn't come from a can or box will provide energy to get through the rest of the semester.

3. No worries of homework

While you may have a paper or a reading assignment due, it's great to have no other obligations on top of that. You could go to the library and do it, but just as easily do it in pajamas with your favorite show going on in the background and food just a couple yards away.

4. Regaining your sanity

The most important thing about being on break is the chance to recenter yourself and remember that school isn't everything. Yes, school is a very important part, but your mental health is more important. It's good to realize that while you spend hours doing school work every week, you should break it up with hanging out with friends or doing something else you love. Be sure to do something fun and exciting, even if it's binge-watching all nine seasons of "The Office" or the twelve seasons of "Grey's Anatomy" Netflix has to offer. Just remember to relax and de-stress during this time at college.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
