1. The Mom Friend

We all know this friend — they're the first one you run to when you have a problem, the first one you run to for medicine, the one that will fight anyone and everyone on your behalf, and the one with the best advice for any situation.

2. The Loud Friend

This friend more than likely has that unique, loud laugh that can be heard from across campus. They also forget that indoor voices are a thing, and you probably have to remind them constantly to turn the volume down on their voice box. And they can't whisper. At all. But do you need someone yelled at, or do you need to ask your near-deaf professor a question? Have no fear — the loud friend is here.

3. The Quiet Friend

You'll usually find this friend on the edge of the crowd, inserting comments every now and then, but otherwise just observing. They're wallflowers, in a way. (Hah, get it? Because of the .gif? I know, I'm funny.)

4. The Animal-Loving Friend

This friend has an animal radar. They can immediately tell when an animal is near, and will run through, jump over, knock down, or otherwise bowl over anything or anyone that stands in the way of them getting to said animal.

5. The Extroverted Friend

Is the friend group bored? Turn to this friend, because they'll always have some spontaneous idea up their sleeve! Want that guy's number, but you're too afraid to ask? Don't worry, you've got the most outgoing wingwoman/man in the world by your side!

6. The Sporty Friend

Not only does this friend own the most extensive collection of running shorts, spandex, tank tops, tennis shoes, and other sports paraphernalia, this friend also has the natural ability to literally be good at any sport ever.

7. The Smart Friend

This friend is the walking encyclopedia of the group. You can always count on them to make the good grades, to be the source of knowledge, and to always be up for answering your questions. This friend is also either very humble or very arrogant about their intelligence. There is no in between.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

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.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
