Dear Diary Think Of Your Future

Dear Diary,

Today could have been a joke. However, I have been extremely tired today. I sleep for 12 hours last

night. I think I over slept. Any ways the real reason I am writing because I am having a big problem. I

cannot decide on what I would like to do with my life. A part of me is ready to grow up and live on my

own. There is a part of me that wants to take care of my family. The thought of living on my own starting

on my own little family and having my own business is always a dream chaser. Meanwhile, I can’t

leave my family because they need me. I feel like I am missing out on a very important part of my

life. But that is just the prize you have to pay when you are the oldest of eight. Today has been a

very long day. Some nights I stay out longer than others just to get a drink and have some fun. Lately,

all my money have been going towards this bill and that bill. I’m at the point of my where I want to

stop working and take a break. Sounds crazy because I will not be able to survive without a job. I

need to start on my business so that I can go in when I feel like it. Have plenty of money

so I can take some days off. I’m looking forward to my future. I just wonder what my

future is.

Your better half

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
