An Open Letter To Everyone Who Has Helped Me

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

An Open Letter To Everyone Who Has Helped Me
Kaitlyn Marquette

I just want to start out by saying thank you. To those of you reading this, you know who you are. I am so thankful for your being so welcoming to me. You have always done everything you can to invite me to your family events and activities, and to make me feel wanted.

Most of you know about the things that I have went through. I have learned that my past does not define me, and I want to thank each and every one of you that aided me in believing that. I love you all.

To my ex's family: thank you for still being open and welcoming to me. Thank you for always making me feel loved and wanted and apart of the family no matter what. Thank you for always inviting me and including me and cheering me up. Thank you.

To my current boyfriend's family: thank you so much for being open and welcoming to me as well. Thank you for trusting me and helping me out when I needed it, whether it be for myself, or for my brother. Words cannot describe how much that means to me. Thank you for coming to me for help when you need it too. Thank you.

To my stepdad and his family: thank you for raising me to be the person I am today. Thank you for continuing to include me and love me, despite what happened to me, and the time it took me to realize that you've been there for me and loved me all along. I'm so sorry for the period of time I resented you. That was not me. I have always loved you and I have always been thankful for you. I still am, and I would not want anyone else as my family.

And to the rest of my family and friends, I want to thank you, too. You're all about to witness something great, and that is all thanks to your support. I love you all beyond words.

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

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
