We Say 'Goodbye' But No Matter Where You Transfer, I'll Always Be Here For You

Even as next year rolls in without us in the same place, it doesn't mean that I won't always be here for you.

We Say 'Goodbye' But No Matter Where You Transfer, I'll Always Be Here For You
Jessica Boico

To my friend who is transferring:

College life is not always the easiest. As we’ve both seen there are a lot of ups and also downs that go along with it. Maybe it was the distance from home, the size of the school, the academics, or any other possible reason. Whatever it is, this place just isn’t for you anymore.

After many late night talks and deep conversations you’ve decided to transfer. As hard as it is for me to see you go, I know that this is the best decision for you to be your best self. I want to see you thrive and be as happy as you can, wherever that may be. Never would I want you to stay in a place where you feel unhappy and upset. Find where your new spot needs to be and make the best of it, even if that means taking some time off to travel or just be home, that is okay too.

But do not feel alone in this, because you are not alone in this. It seems that nowadays transferring colleges has become almost as common as going to college is. There has become this really positive idea that if you are not happy somewhere, go where you will be. I am a huge believer in this idea and I know that wherever you end up in these next few years it will only be good. No one will be there to beat you down for choosing to go where you will do best. However, if they do then they are not your real friends. Some people may take it not the best and feel hurt or upset.

This is a time to be selfish and make your decision because you want to. As selfish as I want to be and keep you here, it is for the best for you to go on. Take the experiences that you've had here and with all the people that you met, to make your next college experience that much stronger and better. You now know what you do and don't like, so use this to your advantage. It is time to move on to the next stage of this time in your life.

Even though as the next year rolls in without us in the same place, it doesn't mean that I won't always be here for you. Lean on me when you need someone to help get you through those beginning stage adjustments. Call me when something funny happens or you have a story to share. Just because I won't be with you everyday doesn't mean that I won't be here for you the same way. If anything it will make hearing from you and all about your new school that much more special.

Take this time to find yourself and get yourself back on track. No matter where you may transfer, I'll always be here. My back is never turned, my door never shut, and my support never ending.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
