Just Because The Holidays Are Over Doesn't Mean The Spirit Has To Be

Let's make the holiday spirit a year round thing.

Just Because The Holidays Are Over Doesn't Mean The Spirit Has To Be
Bayou City Flyers

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukkah, or none of the above, the holiday season is a time where we all come together and celebrate kindness. Everyone's hearts seem to be filled with a lot more love and acceptance. Could you imagine how wonderful the world would be if we kept this same giving spirit all year round?

Though the holiday season may now be a thing of the past, I challenge your soul to be just the same. Smile at strangers and wish them well, for no other reason than you genuinely care. Wait a few extra seconds and hold the door for others, and always be willing to help without assuming you'll get something out of it. Put aside the differences you may have with the people in your life, because life is too short to hold grudges. During the holidays, we seem to go the extra mile and do these things automatically. However, as soon as our decorations go back into the boxes until the next year, it seems as though our kindness gets packed away with them.

We have the ability to make the world a better place, so why don't we do it? A little kindness goes a long way, and it doesn't take much to make someone's day and assure they feel loved and wanted.

There's no better New Year's resolution than this: let's be kind and love one another not for just one month out of the year, but every single day because no matter what you celebrate in December, we're all in this together.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
