An Open Letter To Annoying Morning People

Good Morning, Morning People, Please Leave Me Alone Until At LEAST 11 A.M.

To all the people on campus who see me awake, don't take it personally that I look like I want to strangle anything in sight.

To all the people out there who love mornings and enjoy sipping their coffee while the sun is rising... congratulations. I am definitely not one of those people. Mornings are for silence, little to no conversation, and sleeping if you ask me. Now don't get me wrong, I still love waking up to get breakfast with a friend and getting up early enough to have a nice full day. Though the struggle is real to act like a normal human if that means before 11 a.m.

I grew up in a house with people who like mornings and wake up ready to have a thick conversation, so not being one of those people took time for my family to understand. Especially because the first thing that my older sister does when she gets up is start a conversation. So, back when we would get ready for school together, it was hard for her to understand why I didn't want to have a full-on conversation or why I just liked to eat my breakfast in silence. Even for my parents, they didn't get at first why I was so quiet in the mornings. As I got older people started to understand that I am one of the only people in my family who is not a morning person. Even though at times I have to remind people and say "it's too early for talking" or "I just woke up and this conversation needs to wait."

Flash forward to the present and I am a junior in college, I luckily can design my schedule to fit my hate for mornings even though I still do have morning classes. I know for a fact that I do not look approachable or happy what so ever when I am walking to my 8 a.m. To all the people on campus who see me awake, don't take it personally that I look like I want to strangle anything in sight. I just don't want to be awake and wish that I was still in my nice warm bed.

Some things that I do to deal with my hate for mornings are that I stay far away from anyone who looks like they're going to want to talk to me. I also make sure that if I do have to talk to someone I use small, usually one-worded responses that get right to the point so that the conversation can be over. I now also drink either tea or coffee to try and get to some level of awake as the rest of the world.

So, to all my people that do not like the mornings and struggle to exist when it is earlier than 11 a.m., I understand and we are in this together. To all my people who like mornings and wake up ready for the day, congrats but please stay far away for me and everyone else who hates mornings. Lastly, SHHHHHH.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
