To My Friends As They Prepare To Graduate College, I Love You More Than You Know

College would not have been the same if it wasn't for you.

To My Friends As They Prepare To Graduate College, I Love You More Than You Know
Madison Zinn

When I started college, I didn't quite know who I was.

I was shy and insecure and didn't quite know where I fit into the world. I didn't have very many good friends that I knew that I could always count on.

But then you girls came along.

You welcomed me into your lives with open arms. You showed me what it is like to have friends that truly care for me and would be there for me no matter what.

My college experience would not have been the same if it wasn't for you girls. You are the first people that I want to go to when I am sad and the first people that I want to call when something exciting happens.

I would not be who I am if it wasn't for you.

Through the laughs, the tears, the crazy nights, and the lazy nights in, you have all never failed to make me smile.

We all have so many memories together, memories that I will forever cherish. Memories that I will always look back on with a smile on my face.

From the nights out to the deep heart-to-heart talks that lasted for hours, there was never a dull moment to be had with us.

And now, you are graduating.

The selfish part of me wants you to not graduate yet so that you can stay here with me. But I know that it is time for you to move on.

It is time for you to go out into the world and make your dreams come true. It is time for you to find your passions and discover all of the amazing things that life has in store for you.

I am so proud of all of you for how hard you have worked to get to where you are today. I feel so lucky to be a part of your journeys through life.

Although we may not get to see each other every day, that does not make you any less special to me. It just means that the times that we are together will be that much more special.

I love you all more than you know. Thank you for making my college experience so amazing and for being the best friends a girl could ever dream of.

I wish you nothing but happiness while you move onto the next chapter in your life, and I can not wait to see where it takes you.

I know that each and every one of you is going to do great things.

One of the darkest moments in my family's life.

Huffington Post

I knew this day was coming when my mother’s decided to get spinal surgery. February 20, was the date her surgery was set. It was a normal day in school when I received the message of a lifetime. My oldest sibling telling me our mother’s surgery went wrong. Imagining what could possibly go wrong made my eyes water. Felt like I was the only person on my bus. Everything was silence and my mind was racing. There was never a positive thought in my head. Taking the last step off the bus and the first step onto the porch, everything was real.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.
