To The Best Friend I Fell In Love With

I can't say thank you enough.

To The Best Friend I Fell In Love With

I used to think I'd never fall in love.

Don't worry, it's not as sad as it sounds! It was never a priority for me! I never worried about dating or having boyfriends or anything like that - It just wasn't something I cared about! There were too many books to read and movies to watch and bands to listen to and tv shows to obsess over! Why deal with the drama of a real relationship when I can spend all my time analyzing and fangirling over fictional ones?

Then I met you.

I didn't fall for you immediately. At least, I don't think so. It's kind of confusing because it took me so long to really understand what I was feeling. However, I did immediately notice the amazing connection we had. Our friendship grew SO fast, you were my best friend in less than a month. After trying and failing so many times, I found someone who I felt finally completely understood me. Don't get me wrong, I had a couple of other friends who were (still are) incredible, and I love them and am so thankful for them, but our friendship was so different.

When you first told me you liked me, I was a little surprised, both by your confession and my reaction. I had never really considered dating another girl, so it took me a little while to really understand what I was feeling, but I honestly should've known so much sooner that everything was different with you.

Now, I'm so thankful that you're by my side (figuratively, for now). You make me laugh when I'm having a bad day. You can get me through the most random anxiety attacks. Your smile is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I love how supportive you are. I completely adore the songs you write. I can't believe how lucky I am, that you would choose to be with me, even when I'm obnoxious, annoying, and whiny.

So, to the best friend I fell in love with, thank you for being such an incredible, encouraging, wonderful girlfriend. I can't imagine life without you.

Holidays With A Small Family

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

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.
