So if you're a book lover like me you never pass up an opportunity to poke your head into a Barnes & Noble. They are the ultimate mecca for bookies everywhere. Even if you're not a book person I'm sure there is something you can find that you love there. The following is a list of why Barnes & Noble is the best place ever.

1. The staff are super nice.

I feel like you can strike up a conversation with any employee at Barnes & Noble and leave with a super new best friend. They compliment your purchases and make you feel super cool.

2. They have a bangin' variety to choose from.

I don't know about you guys but I'm a manga lover, and I wouldn't choose any other book retailer to feed my addiction to Japanese culture. Not only that, they have everything from humor to politics to toys and games to CDs and Vinyl.


Aaaaaand...it's Starbucks coffee to boot! Plus you can get sandwiches and sweets there too! They also have pretty nice seating areas where us college peoples can work on their homework or just chill with the crew.

4. Great kids events.

This has two great purposes. 1. To entertain your child. 2. To let you roam the store childfree. But seriously they do events like this one with characters and such for the kids and they also do reading circles. It's just so nice to see them caring about kids in the community, especially when some have a tough home life and this is their only way to get out to have fun.

5. Most are architecturally different.

This one is so cool! I've literally never seen a Barnes & Noble like this before.

This is the standard Barnes & Noble look, but it's classic and beautiful.

This one has three floors! THREE FLOORS! Need I say more?!

This one looks like its attached to a mall or something, but it's still neat because they have to fit all those books in much less space.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
