It's been a long time coming, but you gotta go...

Dear Writer’s Block,

Forgive my non-cliché intro but it’s definitely you, not me. You see, I have to call it quits. It’s time I hunt for greener pastures and frankly, I feel like you have been weighing me down and dragging me back.

I don’t think we are well suited for each other, due to our inherent differences. You’re slow when I try to be fast. You’re a blank wall when I try to paint a beautiful picture.

They say opposites attract but I feel like the case is opposite for us. I would like there to be an instant and permanent repulsion between us from now on.

We aren’t meant to be together so, I hope you will take the hint and back off. Let me have my green pastures and enjoy the free flow of creativity. I know you may be surprised by this but really, you shouldn’t.

Not many people will be able to handle what you bring to the table.

I hope you have fun in another person’s life and I sincerely wish you guys the best of luck. I really wish that you would leave me alone to carry on with this life without a whisper, shout, message or even email from you.

I would much rather erase all traces of your presence from my life and I hope that is just fine with you. We haven’t been on the same page for a long while now and you know it. I was always sad, and you were just how you always are.

I can’t deal with that kind of stress right now and I am determined to move on from what we had. Please don’t be one of those jealous exes that always hangs around and tries to spoil things. I believe you are better than that. I pray you are better than that.

With luck, we can both move on from the years we spent together and flourish in our new lives. I am not grateful for the time we wasted on each other but since we cannot change the past, we must mend the future. Today.

Goodbye forever, Writer’s Block. Go torment some other writer.

Yours truly,

Newly Creative Writer.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Heading Home For The Summer

Why go somewhere fun when you can go home?

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.
