5 Life Lessons I've Learned From Pursuit Of Wonder

Pursuit Of Wonder is a YouTube channel that has videos perfect for giving you an existential crisis–but there is something to be gained, too. Their videos have truly valuable life lessons, that are useful to remember every day of your life. Whenever I'm feeling particularly stressed or worried, I try to remember the messages from these YouTube videos. Check out the Pursuit of Wonder's YouTube Channel for more videos like these.

The Only Reason That Anything Happens Is the Reason You Give It

In life, we always try to make sense of everything that happens to us- good or bad. But sometimes, terrible things happen without any real reason. But it's up to you to give reason to everything - no matter how bad it may seem. You have the power to create meaning for yourself when you are unable to find any.

There Is No Such Thing As Good or Bad luck

This video really made me think about all the things that have happened in my life that I've considered "good luck" or "bad luck". Life is funny because "good" things can actually turn out to be bad in the long run, just like how "bad" things can have an unexpected positive side. At the end of the day, though, there's no way to know with certainty the cause or effect of anything that may happen- regardless of how it may appear in the moment.

Without Suffering, You Can't Know What Happiness Is

Without the struggles and trials we face in life, we wouldn't be able to appreciate the victories and joys. As much as we might want life to be perfect, this video made me think: what would that actually be like? What would it be like to not have to struggle to overcome obstacles, to strive toward something and feel the satisfaction of finally achieving it?

One Day No One will Remember Who You Were

While at first this seems really depressing, there is another way to look at it: that we should live our lives the way we see fit, do and pursue what makes us happy. When you look at your life in the grand scheme of things, and remember that everything is temporary, what seems daunting in the moment becomes not such a big deal.

Be Kind- Everyone Is Fighting Their Own Personal Battle

When we get really absorbed in our own lives and our own personal problems, it can be easy to become inconsiderate of others or judge them based on what we see. This video reminded me that there is always a reason behind other's actions that we can't see, that everyone has their own story. So no matter how much someone might annoy us, or what our first judgement might be, we should always strive to be kind.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
