Best Things About February

Though my favorite month of the year is January (Capricorns what's goooood), I also have to realize that there are good qualities about the other months throughout the year. Once they pass, you only have to wait 11 more months to get back in the same month, which is unfortunate when it's the first day of summer and you realize you have to wait a little over 11 months just to get back to the glorious feeling of no more school. Thus, I decided to make a list of the great qualities February has jto get me through this short month.

1) Black History Month

Ironically, the shortest month of the year is also the one that represents one of the most targeted populations in the United States. Throughout the month, Black and African-American communities celebrate our culture, ccreativity, inspirations, traditions, and a whole lot more in many planned events and campaigns, especially shown on social media.

2) The Important Awards Shows

Pretty much anything NOT listing "Choice Awards" in its titles, aka Grammys, BAFTAs, Oscars, Emmys, etc. It's a good month to get 3/4 of the prestigious EGOT awards and to free up your Sunday night, pop some popcorn, and watch 2-4 hours of pure celebrity achievements. It's a yearly tradition for me, and it's always amazing to see the underdogs win an award. (I JUST WANT LIN-MANUEL TO GET HIS EGOT!!!)

3) Valentine's Day (CANDY)

I'm honestly not a huge Valentine's Day fan, and it's not because I have no one to celebrate with (if I do their name is Food, Comfort Food). I do, however, love the idea of huge discount packs of clothes, candy, pillows, trinkets, you name it at various stores. Even going shopping in January, I saw huge assortments of Reece's hearts in Walmart! (feel free to mail this to me :))

4) Spring Break is Coming

Though I do enjoy the winter, I love being in the nice sun enjoying the activities of Spring Term (SPRINGFEST!!). With that, I also get to go home for 10 days to relax, and think of a time where I don't need to do work! And I think that's any college student's dream. Hang in there everyone, February's almost over!

Holidays With A Small Family

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

171
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.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
