You guys are practically family.

A Letter To My College Sisters As We Go Home For Summer

To my new found Sisters,

It is crazy that just a couple of months ago we were all strangers to one another. Now look at us. Starting college was one of the scariest / happiest moments of my life and I don’t think I would have gotten through it without all of you. There is something about my friendship with you girls that is different from any other friends I have had. It is because you have all become part of my family. You are my sisters and helped build me a home away from home; and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank you enough for that.

This year we have all grown and learned a lot and all I can say is thank God I had you girls beside me. Life is a lot different when you are not living with your mother or father. Even though many of us think we’re so ready to leave the house; the first few months of college taught me I wasn’t as ready as I thought.

So thank you, my sisters, for stepping in as a mom when I needed a hug or a shoulder to cry on when I had a terrible day. Thank you for stepping in as a dad when you know a boy isn’t good for me. Thank you for being my date to awkward and sometimes overwhelming social events. I know I can count on you girls for not letting me walk out of the dorms completely mismatched. From doing laundry together, singing and dancing around like fools, finding our Zen through yoga, crying a little too hard on our sappy movie nights, drinking and playing cards after a long week, and pushing me out of my comfort zone. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you.

As we go home for summer I can’t help but find it bittersweet. I am so excited to go swimming and camping; but I’ll be wishing you girls could be right there with me. In such a short amount of time you girls have become my sisters so it’s going to be hard not just running over to your room the moment something happens. So until we meet back in the fall expect me to be sending you countless snapchats and texts telling you about the crazy things that are going on. After summer is over I look forward to telling you girls everything and decorating our home-away-from-home.

You girls will always hold a special place in my heart. You are the people who took me in as their friend when I was going through the biggest step in my life. You gave me a family when I couldn’t be with mine. You girls saved me from being utterly alone as I began my first steps to an independent life. Where ever we end up in life know that each of you will forever be my sisters.

Have a blast over summer break and live it up, because I want to hear all about it when I see you all again. I love you girlies, and I’ll be seeing you all soon.


Your new found Sister

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
