Focusing On Yourself In A Relationship Is The Secret Ingredient To Every Fairytale Romance

As the title suggests, focusing on yourself is the best thing you can do, not only for yourself but for the health and longevity of any relationship. Meeting someone is always exciting, you are learning more about the other person and yourself. Since you don't know much about each other, there is so much to learn! However, there comes a point when you don't have anything else new to find out about each other. Of course, you may learn some new things here and there, but if you aren't active in your own life, things are going to get stale very quickly.

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you can't make new conversations? For example, they ask you what you did today or how your day was and... you have nothing new to tell them. Or worse, you just say "nothing..". How awkward!

If you're always trying new things and keeping a busy life it works in your favor for several reasons. Firstly, you have something interesting to say when you talk to them next. You have time apart from them, which creates room for them to miss your presence. You are improving yourself, to your own benefit. Maybe gaining new skills, and learning more about yourself. If your friend, partner, etc. is open minded, you can bond with them over doing something new together. Life is too short not to make the most of it. So, take this article as a sign to try that new thing that makes you curious and excited!

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.

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.

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.
