To My Mom, My Biggest Supporter
Lizzy Smith

Dear Mom,

First, I want to say thank you for loving me unconditionally. However, what you have done for me cannot be defined by the word "unconditional," Because what you have done is far beyond that.

When I was younger you were my hero and I was your biggest fan, that has not changed. Some kids say they want to be astronauts, doctors, explorers or police when they grow up. I have always wanted to be at least half the person you are, that is good enough for me. You are the most selfless person I have ever met. You lift me up even on your hardest days and inspire me every time we talk.

Speaking of our talks, those are my favorite memories. I love how I can tell you anything, even the most embarrassing things, and you can make me laugh about it. Our talks have quite literally saved my life. Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today.

You are not just a great mom to me you are an amazing mom to my, sometimes difficult, little sister. I am so thankful for that, you have no idea. leaving her when I went to college was so hard, but I knew she was in the best hands ever.

I never thought I would be so thankful for my mom when I was ten, but now you are the most important person in my life and my bestie. I love being your daughter. I am constantly beaming with pride. I wouldn't trade a single thing about you for the world. Katie, my little sister, and I are the luckiest girls in the world to have you in our lives. When I have kids I hope I am half the mom you are!

I know this might be cheesy, but today I just wanted to give you some love! I love you, mom!



Now for some advice from me to the other lucky daughters of the world!

Tell your mom how much you love her, you have no idea how much she needs to hear that. Never forget that she brought you into this world and has kept you safe ever since, even when she wakes you up at 7:30 a.m. during winter break for no reason. You will never regret spending time with the people you love! Maye makes it about them sometimes and set aside your needs. she has done that for you your entire life. So, give her some love!

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.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
