To Those I Lost Along The Way, Thank You

Thank you for being a part of my life


As we go through childhood we believe that the friends we have when we are 7 are going to be the ones that stay with us through middle school and high school. We find girlfriends that we made wedding plans with and boys that come in AND out of our lives, sometimes multiples times.

To all of those that have been in my life, that I have lost along the way, I want to thank you.

Thank you for showing me the joy in life and sharing laughs with me. Laughing until we cry or laughing until the craps in our sides make us fall to the floor.

Thank you for making me a better person. For telling me what I needed to hear, even when I did not want to hear it. For giving me the tough love.

Thank you for showing me that heartbreak is okay. After the first break up, I felt like the world was going to end and I would never find love again. Without your help and guidance along the way, I never would have realized that "when one door closes another opens."

Thank you to the boys who made me feel like I was nothing. You showed me what love is supposed to be, but not from what you showed me, from the knowledge I gained along the way.

Thank you for leaving me and making me realize that without you I am and can be much stronger than what I first believed of myself.

Thank you for moving on so I could also move on. Moving on to bigger and better things. To friends that have turned into family and a boy that has made me the happiest person, I could ever be.

As I cherish all of the moments we have spent together, they are now distant memories that I will hold onto forever.

For one last time, thank you for being my friends.

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
