Casual coffee with someone you haven't spoken to since you walked, high school reunions, or grabbing a beer with a "friend" you went to lunch with like three times — count me out.

If you weren't close enough to stay in touch over the years, what makes you think meeting up for coffee won't be awkward as hell?

People who are overly excited to reconnect with people who they had a couple classes with are wild. High school is this weird time when you're not sure what your core values and interests are.

You're basically just a blob of a person trying to navigate hormones, social media, and algebra.

There is only a small pool for you to pick your friends from and while some are lucky enough to make lifelong friends, most are just temporary. We eventually grow up and grow apart.

So why are there suddenly people who are dying to see how I am doing when we maybe talked five times in high school?

I am not one of those high school graduates who suddenly feels the need to reconnect with every person I ever went to school with. I am not talking your actual friends from high school.

I am talking about the people you didn't give a rat's ass about back then.

College is the time to make new friends, discover new identities and create a plan for your future. Don't get stuck trying to catch up with everyone you ever spoke with in high school.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
