For me, break used to be a short amount of time where everyone enjoyed a week off from school. As much as I love my family and being able to spend time with my friends who live in Fairfield, CT, being away from Marist for an entire month is heartbreaking. I miss the atmosphere, the people, the sense of community, and the activities that Marist has to offer.

Overall, a little break from stress, drama, school work, and classes is great, but being home for an entire month does get a little repetitive after a while. And someone who gets it is the one and only sarcastic, childish, and hilarious Nick Miller (played by Jake Johnson) from "New Girl."

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.
