A poem about me

I am from...

I am from…

I am from the world of crystal flakes that gently dance in the bitter tempest in a christmas wonderland.

Joined in a world of frost where I was once born.

I am from a health to sports crazed dad,

And a hard working to loving mom.

With a sister that makes me laugh when I am feeling down.

I am from roasting crispy marshmallows along the crackly fire,

to singing christmas carols along the campfire.

From Christmas tree to shivering knees

I am from spending every day on Christmas Eve.

I am from "we're all in this together" to "tale as old as time".

Brought up in a land of wizards and witches where wands can create magical wishes.

Growing up breaking strings and going to competitive meets.

I am from a world of journeys, visiting history and its beauty.

Never getting to see enough of the world's neverending mysteries.

I am from a life of amazing friends and long lasting friendships.

And from all things carbs, to all things sweet.

From chocolates to ice- cream, or from pizza to homemade recipes.

And watching Netflix as my pastime.

I am from a caring and hard-working family

Who strive to help me succeed at everything I do, and I could not be more grateful.

I am from...

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
