An Open Letter to the Person I Can Always Count On
Before It's News

My dear friend,

Life is not easy, but I’ve somehow managed to stumble through it with your help. Whenever I feel as though I have no one who will understand me, I know I can turn to you. You never judge me, you never belittle me, and you never turn me away. You’re there, you listen, and you support me. I honestly don’t know what I would do without your shoulder to cry on or your friendly face to laugh with.

I’ve shared some of my highest points with you, and you’ve stuck around when I was at some of my lowest points. I cannot begin to express how meaningful that is to me. You know my secrets, my fears, my dreams, and my goals, and I keep yours tucked away under lock and key. You can sense how I’m feeling and you never fail to help me through whatever’s going on.

Sometimes you suggest we watch a movie or make cookies when I’m feeling stressed out. Other times you simply offer to go to dinner with me so that I don’t have to be alone with my thoughts. And on severe occasions, you drop whatever you’re doing so we can sit around and complain about life. You’ve saved me from multiple breakdowns by replacing my negativity and melancholia with companionship and smiles.

The sight of you alone can lift my spirits when I’m having a particularly difficult time; talking to you can recharge my spirit. We aren’t always together, and sometimes we aren't even in close proximity one another, but I know that you’re only a text or a call away. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel thankful for having you in my life.

I’ve been through so much, and you’ve been right there with me when I needed someone to share it with. I don’t know how, but you’re one person that I feel no trace of negativity toward. I’ve never hated you, gotten mad at you, or let jealousy obscure how I really feel about you. I have only the purest feelings for you.

I feel as though you’ve helped to make me the person I am today. I’ve learned resilience from your encouragement and have come to terms with myself because of your faith in me. I cannot thank you enough for being a part of my journey and for allowing me to be a part of yours. I hope that I can be for you everything that you have been for me because that is the least that I could do to repay you for your unfaltering support.

You are truly an amazing person and these words I've written could never do you justice. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for you.

Much Love,

The Person Who Can Always Count On You

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.
