Dear Family I Will Be Seeing, Here Are Your Answers

These are the brutally honest answers to the inevitable questions you will be asking.

Dear Family I Will Be Seeing, Here Are Your Answers

Dear family, I will be seeing this coming weekend, I know you will be asking me many questions due to the year that has passed. Many things have changed since we last saw each other, and assuming you do not have me on Facebook (or even those who do) there may be many things you do not know about me. Surely you know the questions you ask are cliche, but they are normal and there is no shame in asking. Because of this, I have taken the time to answer your inquiries before we meet so we can save time and be on the same page.

If you are reading this, know that these are not suppose to come off as rude. These are simply the most blunt way to answer your questions and answer every aspect you may ask out of interest or just to be polite. You might even learn more through this article than asking me in person because I’m being brutally honest, which I would never do in person.

How is College going?

  • It’s going great. I’m at a community college working on a transfer degree, and as of now I have a 3.2 GPA. I go Monday through Thursday and get out at 12:45 Monday and Wednesday, 11:15 Tuesday and Thursday. I am taking biology, english, a media glass, and a tech class. I enjoy college a lot more than high school because I am doing classes I enjoy that have to do with my custom interests. I am working ahead and currently five weeks ahead in my tech class and slowly working ahead in english. Yes, writing research papers are hard but it’s only because of my professor. Writing is fun for me, and comes naturally, but my professor talks a bunch. Eh, what are you gonna do?

What’s your major?

  • Communications. Yes, I know to not get involved with fake news. To be honest I will do my best not to write about politics at all in my field because I want to get involved with entertainment journalism and meet new people and write about stuff I actually enjoy hearing about twenty-four seven.

Have you gotten your license yet?

  • No, I haven’t. I’ve been working very hard in school and my license in on the backburner. When I have time to focus on my license and studying on that, I will. I don’t want to take the test until I am absolutely confident I know the material so I don’t have to take te test again, but as of now I don’t even have time to clean my room because of my school work taking up most of my time and energy. Yes, the car does run and is being driven while I am studying, my dad drives her to work.

What did you name your car?

  • I’m stuck no Lorraine but I haven’t settled.

Any boys in your life?

  • Nope.

Are you dating?

  • I have a girlfriend named Raine. She is older, and she has a job, and I am very happy with her. We have been together since September. No my parents do not know about this and yes I would like to keep it that way, please don’t mention it because I will deny it.

How are your sister and her kids?

  • They’re great. My sister is great and her family is great. Trinity is in girl scouts this year and is sold me girl scout cookies for my never ending cheat days. It's pretty great.

Try Bambi.

  • I will just don’t look at me while I do it it makes me anxious. I’m sure Bambi tastes great.

Have you caught up on The Walking Dead?

  • Yes I have. It is annoying me to no end as of late. It’s not as good as the comics and frankly I think Carl’s death was a mistake but will see how it pans out. Yes, I still love Negan.

It’s not that I don’t know what to say when you ask, it’s that I am shy. On the spot, I don’t do well answering your questions, so here are your answers to all the questions that come up every year. I know it was a big year for me, going off to college and what not and you’re just itching to know more. If I missed anything, feel free to ask now that the basics are out of the way.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Emmie Pombo

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
