A Love Letter To My Scrunchie

The true MVPs and loves of my life


Dear Scrunchies,

Oh, how I love you. You have changed my life for the better. I remember I had you sitting in all my beauty things freshman year of college unused until I was a sophomore, and my whole life changed.

From that 80's skate night, on, I knew that we could never be apart. You were so big and could hold all of my hair perfectly. You had just the right amount of wear that the elastic would wrap around tight enough to hold my hair in a bun, but not too tight that it felt like it was being ripped out.

We went everywhere together and you were my trusty sidekick. Those months that I lost you threw me into a crazed spiral of scrunchies trying to find one that would be the perfect replacement.

I searched and searched for you, swearing up and down that my cat stole you. I went to Claire's and I bought 8 more; an exact replacement, a backup, a backup of the backup, and various velvet ones for fun. I was determined to have you back.

The exact replacement did not have the right specifications for my needs. It was much looser than you and did not provide me with enough stability for my buns. I turned to my now trusty pink velvet one and fell in love.

It never leaves my wrist. I am so lost without a scrunchie that I keep an extra in my car, backpack, and purse just in case I lose it or forget it at home.

I love how soft you are and how you perfectly capture the scent of my honey shampoo. I love how effortlessly stylish you make me look and how you add a pop of color to my days.

Thank you for being the perfect accessory and pop of color. Thank you for holding back my hair in the gym and on hot days. Thanks for being so easy to take out so when the kids at work do my hair, they don't rip it out. Thank you, scrunchie, for being my ride or die.

Oh, scrunchie, I love you so much. I hope you never go out of style.

Sincerely with Love,

The Crazy Scrunchie Lady

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


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.
