7 Keys To A Healthy Relationship

Relationships happen all the time and are a part of life. In relationship we all mess up, and we don’t always do the right things. Here are some key things in a relationship that I believe are important.

1. Trust.

In a relationship trust is very important. A lot of relationships fail because someone doesn’t have trust. Trusting people is really hard, especially when you’re dating. But if you love them, then you should trust them not to betray you in any way.

2. Communication.

Communication is what keeps the relationship intact. If you have a problem of any sort, talk it out. If you don’t like something that then other person is doing, then say it. Don’t be afraid to speak up, but don’t fight, just talk it out.

3. Loyalty.

Being loyal to your partner is a must. Don’t lie, steal, or cheat. Be honest with your partner at all times, and accept nothing but honesty in return. It’s all about respecting them enough to tell the truth.

4 Understanding you need space.

Sometimes in a relationship you spend time together and it gets to be too much. Your partner needs to understand that you need some time alone without them. This is another important key in a relationship.

5. Admitting you are wrong.

If you and your partner are in a fight and you realize you are the one in the wrong, admit you are wrong. There is nothing to be ashamed of, we all make mistakes, but don’t keep on fighting because you don’t want to admit you are the wrong one.

6. Date night.

Having a date night at least once a month is something that will keep the relationship alive. It can be: dinner, a movie, mini golf, really anything fun with your partner. It’s key to go out and have some fun together, instead of just hanging out at the house.

7. Quality not quantity.

It’s all about quality over quantity. It doesn’t matter how much time you and your partner spend together. The most important part is about the quality of this time. It’s fine to zone out together and enjoy distractions, but it’s crucial to make sure you two are still engaging and spending quality time together.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
