To my girls:

We have talked about this time in our lives for years, and here it is. We just graduated. A big step in our lives that I wouldn’t have been able to do with out y’all.

Y’all are apart of all of my big accomplishments and all of my best memories include you! I’ve watched y’all grow into beautiful women and I’m so ready to continue watching y’all grow. I am so excited to see what God has in store for us, but unfortunately, God has placed me hours away.

Hours away from our nights out, from your laughs, your smiles, and your presence. I say unfortunately but I am more than excited to tackle this chapter of life. Although, the day I’ve been dreading is going to be here before we know it. As we embark on the crazy roller coaster called college, I want y’all to remember a few things.

Remember that I am just a phone call away. We might not be close in distance but the miles between us will never break the bond we’ve created. Remember that no friendships I make in college will replace you. Each of you have impacted me in so many ways and new friendships will not change my appreciation for you. My Instagram feed may not be filled with our crazy adventures anymore, but you are still so important to me.

Remember that I will do anything for y’all. My life would not be the same without each one of my girls and I am so blessed to call you my girls. Lastly, remember that I love y’all! I know we won't be as close anymore, but know that I will always love you like the sisters I never had. Thank y’all for making growing up not so bad! Also, don’t forget about me yet…. I’ll be back before you know it!

Love, Katelyn

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

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.
