To The Last Crush I'll Ever Have As An Undergraduate, I'm Going To Miss You

Thinking of you moving on breaks my heart, but I want you to be happy.

To The Last Crush I'll Ever Have As An Undergraduate, I'm Going To Miss You

In exactly 14 words from now, I may or may not taint your perception of me forever. Well, here goes...

...I like you, kid.

I've liked you since the spring of 2018 when you walked up to me and introduced yourself after one of the first classes we ever had together.

We talked for about an hour or so after that, and it was honestly one of the most insightful conversations I've ever had with anyone.

The truth is, I don't want you to move on. I want us to try to work out in terms of a relationship somehow. But I know that's just not possible for either of us at the moment.

You're going to go to law school in a few months, and so will I. It won't be long before another woman sees just how intelligent, kind, accepting, and admirable you are (and for the both of you to fall for each other in the end).

It's slightly torturous for me to think about, but I've got no choice but to accept it. And in all honesty, you're the first crush I've ever had who I genuinely want to be happy even though knowing you ended up breaking my heart.

I'm going to miss the anxiety that comes with awaiting your arrival to class hoping that we'll sit next to each other and talk about our lives and futures after it ends.

I'm sorry for making you feel awkward by telling you all of this. Trust me, I know how determined you are to get to law school, and I certainly don't want to get in your way of accomplishing that goal.

But I also didn't want us to go our separate ways without telling you how great of a guy I think you are.

Everyone deserves to know that they're admired, and there are so many reasons why I admire you.

I admire the way your face lights up whenever you talk about history or politics.

I admire how motivated you are to make something amazing of yourself one day, and how focused you are on doing that.

I admire how you never hesitate to be yourself (including using words like "bronco" to describe what it was like to ride your broken bike).

I admire that you've always been so willing to help me out with the things I struggled to understand, even if you thought they were pretty simple.

I admire that you encouraged me to refrain from letting others interfere with my dreams.

You were extremely patient, accepting of who I was, and showed me that the best surprises are the ones that come out of the blue.

Even if you don't feel the same, I'm so thankful God made us good friends. In the end, knowing you has taught me that there are good guys in the world and that I can believe in finding one of them again even in my strongest moments of doubt.

I know you're going to be a fantastic lawyer, and I wish you nothing but success, happiness, and fulfillment in the future.

As difficult as this is to type, I'm going to miss you.

Here's to our last (virtual) fist pump.

Now please text me back so I know you don't think I'm entirely weird.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
