As we begin coming to a close of our freshman year at JSU, I started asking my friends about their favorite memories. Here, you will find memories of how my friends and I met and grew closer this year.

1. Sarah Boger, Freshman

"My favorite memory is sitting on the football field until 3 in the morning after a football game. We talked, laughed, and just laid there. It was one of the key bonding moments for our friend group and helped to establish that I was where I belonged."

2. Ashleigh Crouch, Freshman

"I don't have a specific memory, I just love all the times we hang out in the basement of our dorm or in the rec center and just chill because I feel like I can be my true self with y'all, and I don't ever feel like I have to get dressed up or hide who I am."

3. Destiny Paris-Cartwright

"Mine is Disney Trivia Night. We laughed, made memories, and won! I love being able to be competitive with the people I love. Also, taking pictures before Christmas and taking pictures recently!"

4. Britney Ryals, Freshman

"Mine is when I went to the Morgan Wallen concert and meet you, Sarah, and Cortney because it set the path to finding the friends that become family."

5. Megan O'Connor, Freshman

"it's hard to pick out my favorite moment from freshman year honestly, but I would have to say one of the best ones was when I went to The Factory which is in Gadsden, Alabama for the first time, and I went with Freshman Forum. We as a group went and had a "lock-in" where we got to stay there overnight and have full reign of the bouncy room area till around 7 am the next morning. Since it was around the first few weeks of actually being in the forum so I didn't know many people, and this whole retreat was a way to break the ice between everyone and get to know our groups. However, I had met a girl named Destiny during the interview phase of it all, and we really clicked, and thankfully we both made it. I loved hanging out with her and everyone else in the forum, and it was super cool to get to know her more, She's been a super good friend to me over the year, and I can thank The Forum, and The Factory for that!"

6. Cortney Salster, Freshmen

"One of my favorite memories of my freshman year in college would have to be attending the play "She Kills Monsters." I enjoyed watching the actors/actresses go beyond their ability to make the play so exhilarating and seem so realistic. I had such a great time."

7. Kelsie Pence, Freshman (Me)

"My favorite memory of freshman year is coming back from Christmas break. I was so excited to see my friends. When I walked into Fitzpatrick and went to their rooms, they were just as excited to see me. I love that I've made friends that make going home so hard."

How Happiness In A Relationship Is So Important

What is the happiness and love that we as individuals deserve when it comes to our relationship?

It's different for each of us. Some prefer being showered in gifts, being showed off on social media, bragged about to family and friends. But, what is the one thing that all of those have in common?

That would be the unmistakable amount of love your significant other has for you, that they will do anything to show you that they love you unconditionally. We all show our love for one another in various ways. I for one love being shown the love someone else has for me in small things they do.

It could be a simple 'good morning love' text message or even just a hug out of the blue. Knowing that someone cares so deeply about you is one of life's greatest gifts. Knowing that another human being loves you and wants to be with you, it makes us drunk off of love and our heads float up to the stars.

However, when we don't feel that love, that connection, that reassurance from our significant other that they love and care for us back, it can be an extremely overwhelming and a lonely feeling.

We start looking for those feelings and connections elsewhere. In our friends for reassurance if we look good or blowing up their phones for attention.

We start caring about if other people find us attractive or not, we relish in compliments that other people give us. We start looking for that happiness elsewhere. It's not because you stop loving your significant other or stop caring about them, but we as humans need to feel important and like we are needed by another person.

When you stop letting your significant other know how much you care about them or showcasing your love for them, even if it's a simple gesture like holding their hand or holding the door open for them, they will begin to look elsewhere.

Now I am in no way saying that they will cheat on you, but your relationship and their attitude and feelings towards you will never be the same until you start showing them how much they mean to you just as much as they do for you. I don't condone cheaters or staying in a relationship that you are not happy in.

Yes, some relationships go through hard times like distance or a traumatic event. However, the way I see it is if you entered into the relationship, to begin with, you obviously cared about that person a lot and if they show you that they care and love you for the person you are and your past then they deserve the same in return from you.

Relationships are not always easy, they take time, determination, communication, compromise, and love to stay afloat. If one of you isn't willing to give your all and put forth the effort needed then it will never work. A relationship can't be successful if it is only one-sided.

Despite peoples life's being busy on a day to day basis, you need to always find time for your significant other. Because at the end of the day when things hit the fan, your significant other should be the one that will be there no matter what and always be by your side.

All in all, you need to treat each other the way in which you would want to be treated in a relationship and treat them the way they should be treated despite whatever chaos is going on in the world about you. Love is the conquer of all and should never be thrown around or not taken seriously.

Loving someone else is a gift we are given by God and never taken lightly.

Bisexuals can pansexuals can often get lost in the translation of LBGTQ+. As it is pride month I figured why not spread a little love to all my fellow bisexuals this month to spread the bisexual agenda, whatever that may be.

And of course, we can't forget any of our fellow pansexual friends, so here are ten reasons why dating us is superior.

1. We're pretty chill

2. They will probably check out other people with you

3. We're occasionally more open to try things

4. The community itself is like no other

5. We get the best of both worlds

6 We are great listeners

7. We are definitely stylish
