As This Graduation Season Approaches, I Hope You Know

It's all for you.

I hope you know, as this graduation season approaches, that the sacrifice which I endured was all to show you.

Every late night, every tear, every moment of desperation was all to show you.

Whenever I crafted an essay, a project, a presentation, I did it with the thought of you in my mind.

The day is approaching when I get to walk across that stage and receive my Bachelor's. I will be thinking of you when I do it.

I don't regret any of my time being in college. It has been a learning experience, a crazy ride, one that I want to get onto again.

I hope you know that this journey was to show you. To show you that I can do it. Without you.

Without you, I have been my whole life. I want to show you that everything that I have endured has been without your help.

I want to show you that this person writing this is dedicating her diploma to the one who gave her life. But no, not you.

I dedicate my hard times, my tears, my sweat, to my mother. She is the one who is worthy of knowing and receiving what I have endured.

You only want me to succeed to make yourself look good. You want to say that it has been you who's been there. It's been the opposite.

You've been the number one person who has wanted to see me fail, yet succeed at the same time. How ironic is that?

Dad, I hope you know that the person who has made me who I am today has been her. My mother.

They say women are the weaker sex, but I've never seen someone as strong as she is. She has taught me sacrifice, perseverance, and hard work. And yes, all this is coming from a woman.

My diploma will only just be the beginning. I will walk across a stage two more times after that to reach for my hopes and dreams. And I will be doing it without you.

Dad, I hope you know that I owe it all to the one who gave me life. My mother.

Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix.

The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

5 Reasons Why Staying At College For The Summer Is The Ultimate Power Move

No school, no rules, summer vacation at the best place on Earth, also known as college.

As summer begins, it brings in the joy of no more school but for most what summer really brings is the sad realization that we have to leave our favorite place and go back to our boring home town with none of our new best friends. Although some have decided to stay at college for the summer and they will soon realize why this will be the best choice that they will be making all summer.

1. NO PARENTS 

What's better than no school, warm weather, and most importantly no one to say, "Are you just going to sleep till 2:30 p.m. every day this summer?"

1. It's like the weekend, but every day

Do you know what weekends felt like during the school year when you didn't have anything to do? No? You never had any free weekends? Wow, I'm so sorry. Well, imagine a weekend that you didn't have to do anything. Now multiply that one weekend by seven and you get seven Saturday like days where you do not have a single care in the world.

3. No "Go cut the grass!"

For the sons, you know that annoying time every week when your dad is going to say, "Go cut the grass." There is nothing you can do to get out of it. Well, staying at school for the summer means no more nagging. You get to choose what you do now.

4. The bond of friendship

The friends you make when you stay at college for the summer are different than any other bond. Mostly because you all don't have a care in the world since it's summer in your favorite place. It's a right of passage to call someone your summer college best friends. These are best friends that words wouldn't do justice.

5. The townies

Everybody always wonders what happens to a college town when all the college kids go home. Well, the townies come back in full swing and take their town back. If you stay at your college, you get to experience what most can't even describe in words. To the one mid-40s guy trying to relive his glory days. To the old men hitting on the college girls at the local pub. To the weird towny creatures that make you shiver with fright as you drive past them. Have fun townies, you only have three months.

That dream of "I wish I could just stay here at college with all these people but have no responsibilities" is finally coming true.
