A Letter To My Mom

Thank you for everything and more.

A Letter To My Mom

Dear Mom,

I want you to know that you are and always will be one of the most important people to have ever been part of my life. You are the reason I am the person I am today. From the moment I entered into this world you have given me an abundance of love; and I don’t know if I can ever explain to you how thankful I am to call you my mommy.

Thank you for being there when I fell down to kiss away the pain of the scratches. You were my most favorite playmate growing up. Oh, and thanks for always making sure I didn’t leave the house without a coat on when it was cold out. Sometimes I like to think I know what is best for me, but it seems you are always one step ahead of me in that department; whether I want to admit it or not.

Mom, I thank God every day for letting my guardian angel walk beside me on this earth.

As I am getting older now, I’m starting to realize that I won’t have the pleasure of having you by my side every day. That is something I took for granted. I didn’t quite understand how lucky I was in high school to be living with you and having your guidance every day. But as I am beginning to enter into young adulthood I am starting to really understand everything you have done for me. Life is hard enough just having to worry and take care of yourself, but taking on the responsibility to care for me is truly priceless. This is a relentless, but beautiful world. It could easily chew you up and spit you out if you let it. But thank you for teaching me that I am strong enough to always push through, and giving me the tools to continuously carry on. I’m only on the beginning of my journey into adulthood and already I am experiencing the many things you have warned me of. It isn’t easy, but because of you I am getting through it. You have given me confidence in myself, knowledge of my self-worth, but most importantly love. You showed me what true love is. You have showed me what I deserve and that I shouldn’t settle in life with anyone who will give me less than that. I want to thank you for giving me these gifts, because in the broken world we live in today these are essential for getting through.

I want to make a promise to you. I promise you that I will always try. I will always push on even if it feels like the world is crashing around me. I will not give up. I promise to fully live in every moment. You gave me a chance at life and I want to live it fully for you. I know I can never repay you for all the things you have done for me, but this is my small step in trying.

Near or far apart you will forever be on my heart.

I love you Mom, always.


Your Daughter / Son

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.

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:

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.
