Four Things To Know About Bookworms

Bookworms. That classic, cute, nerdy, stereotype. One of the Internet's favorite topics. And what should be one of your favorite personalities. (JK. Kinda. We're all great in our own ways). However, back to the stereotype part. I feel like there are some of those that need to be cleared up. Some circulated around the 'net seem to be right, and some seem to be wrong. So here's four things everyone should know about bookworms, straight from a bookworm herself (seriously -- in fourth grade I got in trouble for reading under my desk during math class).

1. Some of us do have favorite books

Seriously. I know bookworms have a stereotype of not being able to choose, but that is not necessarily true. Having a favorite book does not mean you do not love reading. It does not mean you do not love reading other books, or books by other authors, etc. It just means that one book is the one you love the best.

2. Do not interrupt us

Seriously. The one time this could be acceptable is to ask what we are reading. And if we just hold the book up to show the title, that means that we are not in the mood to continue the conversation. If we launch into an excited rant about the book, feel free to carry on the convo. Also, if we look particularly emotional, we're good.

3. Ask about our favorite books

See above points. Bookworms love giving book recommendations. And bonus points if you like what we recommend. If you do not, that is okay too. After we got over the emotional betrayal, we'll be happy to have a spirited debate on the book. Just, if we lend you a book, return it in the condition in which we gave it to you.

4. We do not get sick of gift cards

Seriously. I go through this every present giving occasion. Gift cards are BAE. Barnes & Noble, Amazon, a local independent book shop. Anything that can be used to buy books; we're good. If gift cards are not your thing, try your favorite book, or some cute book related paraphernalia.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
