Are You A Human Or A Sunflower?

With all this sunshine and nice weather, both humans and sunflowers will be co-mingling to catch some warm rays.

Are You A Human Or A Sunflower?

It is starting to get warm again, flowers are blooming, and the sun is shining. Before we know it, it will be summer and we will all be collecting sun rays (and saving them up in memories when we return to school and the frozen tundra of winter). Many living things love to soak in some sun, perhaps most aptly known, the sunflower in particular. So how can you tell the difference between being a human or a sunflower? Answer these questions and find out for yourself!

1. Are you tall?

Sunflowers generally range between 50–400 centimeters tall!

2. Do you eat food or do you photosynthesize?

I am a poor college student and when I forget to pack a lunch, sometimes I go stand out in the sun and try to catch some vitamin D. If we try hard enough, humans can evolve to photosynthesize too, right?

3. Do you need to be routinely watered?

I don’t know about you, but if I don’t get in some puddle jumping or some good dancing in the rain, am I really living life to the fullest?

4. Do you like to give friends tasty food?

Sunflower seeds are great! They are good for nomming on at baseball or softball games. They taste good salted or covered in chocolate. Sunflower seeds are also PACKED with vitamins such as vitamin E, copper, vitamin B1,6&3, manganese, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, and folate (you can find more nutrition facts at Wholefoods).

5. Do you orient to the sunshine?

Sunflowers are known to increase their maximum exposure to the sunlight.

6. Do you radiate happiness to those around you?

Who doesn’t feel happy after leaving the farmers market with a freshly cut sunflower? They just make you feel so joyous!

7. Do you stand up under pressure?

This could be a testament to your character. Sunflowers have long, thick and sturdy stems. They are pretty resilient against possible damages.

8. Do you bloom wherever you are planted?

Like a sunflower can grow in almost all of North America and some unique species in South America, can you grow and live and thrive in any environment? Can you make the most out of anything? Do you bring your positive vibes everywhere with you?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, you may actually be a sunflower! I hope that you are enjoying some nice, sunny, warm weather wherever you may be!

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.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


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.

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.
