To My Graduating Best Friends
Start writing a post

"Sometimes, we're all too quick to count down the days that we forget to make the days count."

The biggest blessing that you can ever get is having someone in your life that can mentor you through either high school or college. This person is someone that teaches you basically how to act, but how to still have fun. They do not judge you for your decisions, but they help you out when you make bad ones. One of the saddest parts of high school and especially college is seeing your friends go so many different ways in life after they graduate. You want to tell them to stay, yet you're happy to see them to successful. So here's to you all graduating.

Always remember your goals.

When you leave, always remember why you went there in the first place. Change can be distracting, but you're working towards something that means so much to your future. Remember why you started and remember when it gets tough, which it will, it is going to be worth it.

Never forget to have fun.

Although you may be "older" and onto a new phase of life, that does not mean that you have to stop doing the things that make you happy. The adults who are children at heart always seem to have the most fun. Enjoy yourself. Do whatever you want because you only have one life and you don't want to spend it caring about what everyone else thinks.

Your new town will be rough but remember that's when you meet the most people.

Remember that going away and meeting new people will not be the same as being with the people who you are used to. You have to put yourself out there and meet new people and try new things to flourish in your community. Change is scary, but it's a good thing.

Know that your friends are going to miss you.

Going through these four years, you probably know the feeling of seeing your friends graduate and move away. It's sad knowing that you're not going to see them every single day like you used to. We're going to miss you a lot and be sure to come back and visit.

Enjoy the time that you have left.

You have such little time left to enjoy the stage of life that you are in right now, so live it up. Do not be one of those people who says "I can't wait to graduate" because no matter what you will miss it.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.
