Long Day At Work

Don't let a long day at work break you.

Long Day At Work

How could it be that there’s no more room,

When your feeling’s no longer matters.

Continuous repeat of work starts to drain you!

And Nothing seems to matter.

Why must my heart pour with tears?

How could this pain last for years?

The ungratefulness, bitterness, and impolite people.

They smile in my face and betray me behind my back.

I speak, but get no response

My passion for this place takes me away

The love I share for everyone keeps me in place.

Although, I don't belong here I need the pay.

Tell me to remain strong

Tell me everything is going to be okay

I’m nearly beaten, out of sight, no mind

I keep pushing. Striving for better.

Because I know who I have become

I will be great one day.

This passion I have interfere with my health

Now I’m crying to someone else

I know if I stay positive, my blessing will come

I keep peace beside me, God within me,

Faith above me, and trust all around me

Time after time I feel let down.

These long days at work tear me apart.

No support, but I keep pushing.

I know that I have to lead.

I see everyone is watching me.

I know that one day it will be done

I know one day I will matter to someone.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
