Going Home For Winter Break As Told by Phoebe Buffay

Going Home For Winter Break As Told by Phoebe Buffay

Whether you know her as Phoebe, Regina Phalange or Princess Consuela Banana-hammock, this girl has the class, sass, and crazy outfits to break down your winter break.

1) The semester is finally over, and we know you could not be more excited to go home.


2) When you get home from the airport and you rush around your house visiting your pets and reveling in all the familiar places.

Everything is just like you remembered!

3) When your parents ask if you've heard back about any of your final exam grades...

4) And trying to cover it up by demonstrating the oodles of knowledge you have gained over break.

These "grades" as you call them are simply stifling my creative potential.

5) When you finally get to drive your car again and you volunteer to do all you parent's errands just to have an excuse to drive. 

So much freedom! So much independence! So many songs to jam to!

6) When your parents suggest you stop watching Netflix, get out of bed, and do something with your life.

Hey, I do things all the time. Isn't this my opportunity to you know, not do things?

7) When your friends get caught up in the same old high school drama again and you just don't care anymore.

Oh no, not this again.

8) When someone disses your holiday spirit.

It's the most wonderful time of the year gosh darn it! And there's always the potential for a visit from Santa Claus, Superman and the Holiday Armadillo.

6) Bonding with your single friends about how totally and utterly single you are.

7) Having wonderful sessions of nostalgia with your best friends.

It's wonderful because you don't have to explain the full backstory, they already know.

8) When you're all cozy in bed and one of your friends tries to get you to come out to some party in the basement of some kid you barely knew from high school.

Thanks, but no thanks. No really, no thank you that sounds awful.

8) When your parents give you ONE JOB to do all day while their at work like emptying the dishwasher, and you hear the garage door opening and realize you didn't do it.

9) When you see your ex in the mall and you're not wearing any makeup.

10) Dreading going back to school because of how much food you've consumed over the holidays.

But don't worry. Whether you're at home or at school, just keep rocking your awesome self!

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.

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.
