Thank you for the memories

Here's To You

Now that my first year of college is coming to an end, I look back and am grateful for the tears, stress, and laughter I experienced during my freshman year. I never realized I would miss having all my friends in the same hall as me, barging into my room while I am trying to take naps and the need to go do things because one of us were bored or tired of doing homework. There were many memories made in our rooms, countless study groups, movie nights, and jam sessions and I cannot think of anything better than having these memories. Living with so many people you’re constantly surrounded by throughout the day may seem a little extreme, but knowing you had someone who was going through similar things as you was always reassuring; because whether it was a stressful test or just feeling homesick, I knew I had people to go to, talk to, or just hang out with till those feelings too would pass. So I want to say thank you to my close friends that live next to me. Thank you for the countless laughs where my stomach ached and I had tears streaming down my face. Without these memories, I do not think I could have survived the stress that comes from college. I can always look back at these times knowing we had a great time and always remember the fun we had together. Thank you for being there when I needed to talk to someone about what troubled me or what made my day. Knowing that someone was there that I could tell them something embarrassing that happened to me that day, like almost being hit by a skateboarder or falling down still holding on to my bike , was something I greatly appreciate (I gave up riding my bicycle after this incident). I never shared an embarrassing moment by myself and I could almost hear you laughing before I made it back to the dorms to tell you the story. Thank you for testing out the Freshman 15 theory, even if it was unintentional. Group dinners to the dining halls and snacking throughout the day were always a must, especially if we had been doing homework for hours. I could always count on at least one person wanting an ice cream cone and us having to make the tough decision of how far we want to walk to go to the dining hall that had the best soft serve. Thank you for dealing with my grumpiness when I did not get my nap or when I was hangry, you guys were the real MVPs. I think by now we all learnt to deal with each other’s hangry words and sleepless attitudes, thank goodness or else we would not have friends or be friends. Finally, thank you for making my first year of college the best experience. Through the ups and downs, you guys were always there and I could not imagine better friends to be in the same hall with. Without you, I surely I would have gone through with my threats of dropping out after every break, hard project, and sometimes procrastinated assignments. So here is to you guys, you can never get rid of me now because this year is in the books and we all did it together We Survived!

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

TikTok was banned by the president, but Instagram is here with its newest feature called Reel. Many of us are still wondering why TikTok was being banned in the first place. Was it all the dangerous TikTok trends? It was because of a security concern, but not in the way you might think.

TikTok is owned by Dancebyte, which is a China-owned company. Basically, just like any other app, TikTok collects the user's data. The main question to ask yourself when investing in any app or marketing tools who will be owning my data? So yes, China currently owns all the TikTok user's data worldwide.

I've always been a huge Disney villain fan — whether it was for their cryptic one-liners, enviable outfits, or sidekick banter. Some of the most iconic lines from cinematic history have been said by the characters we love to hate and occasionally dress up as once a year.

The fear-mongering Gaston I now find hilariously cringe-worthy is now charming and oftentimes considered by fans as rightfully justified in his actions. Die-hard fans of the Disney villain fan club claim alternate egos in their favorite evil characters, adopting their hilarious witticisms into everyday life.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

-Having struggled with acne prone skin for years, I was cautious to try a new serum on top of the other products I've come to trust.

- I have extremely sensitive skin, which is why I have always resorted to a plant-based organic beauty line such as Radha Beauty.

- Radha Beauty won me over years ago when I was looking for organic skincare brands.

- I was so excited to see they launched a new line incorporating USDA organic rosehip oil, so when their PR team sent me some, I could not have been more thrilled.

- After a week of using the products, my face felt as smooth as a baby's, looked more glowy than ever, and even cured some of my summer sunburn.

Radha Beauty isn't just a best-selling beauty brand on Amazon — it's a USDA-certified organic beauty brand I live by, and anyone who knows me knows I am all about holistic wellness.

Typically, it only takes three days for me to tell if a skin product is working or not because I have extremely sensitive skin. It's also why I have always stuck by plant-based organic beauty lines such as Radha Beauty.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

I am not in any way any sort of medical expert. These are just some tricks that work for me and have worked for others who also suffer from anxiety. These may not work for everyone, but I do hope these help some people in their fight against anxiety.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?
