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

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.
