To The Girl I Haven’t Seen Since High School, I Don’t Want To Join Your Pyramid Scheme

Sorry Mackenzie, not interested.

To start off, we never spoke in High School, so why reach out to me now?

I've seen the same message before from random people worded the same way, just promoting their pyramid scheme. I'm not interested in your $30 candles or your $15 nail wraps. If I was interested I'd most likely reach out to you.

Please do not tell me all the benefits to it and how much of a discount you can give me. I also don't care if your friend is looking for 3 people to try out her product for free for 2 months. If I wanted energy tea, I would reach out.

Flooding my inbox with unwanted messages is annoying. I don't care if you think I would be a perfect fit and you give me 100 compliments, I'm not falling for it.

Please don't start telling me how it's a “small business", I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear about how much money you've made in one month with this company. No thanks, I have a job I go to everyday.

Don't think you're going to persuade me to join your pyramid scheme with the common phrases:

“You can work from your phone" or “You can make an extra $500 month"

No Haley, I'm OK.

Don't reach out to me after not seeing me in years and expect me to become your best friends over a pyramid scheme. I'm not begging my friends to try your products out. I'm not paying outrageous prices for something I can buy at TJ Maxx.

Stop sending me DM's. I'm not interested in your weight loss pills or your mascara that's like “no other" and honestly, I don't think anyone else is interested either.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
