My Love/Hate Relationship With Urban Outfitters

The feeling is mutual.

My Love/Hate Relationship With Urban Outfitters
Mike Mozart

My boyfriend’s birthday is coming up, and I'm the type of person who goes all out with gifts. Usually I think of a really thoughtful romantic gift; sometimes it'll even be something I make with my own two hands. Not to toot my own horn, but I make some pretty good homemade gifts- but I'm not a craft expert either. I’ve learned that my man loves to look fresh: he loves to stunt. That's cute and everything, and I love that about him, so this year I decided to set aside my crafts and try to buy him some really nice clothes, maybe a pair of shoes or two.

I was at the mall and I walked into Urban Outfitters, a store my boyfriend and I typically love to walk into to look around and never really buy anything. Urban Outfitters is known for expensive clothing, expensive everything, but they have some of the cutest things and prettiest clothes. It's such a nice store; I love the concept and the vibe to it. They sell turntables, books, cassettes, Polaroid cameras, furniture, all kinds of things. I never dared to buy anything from there because everything is so overpriced, even though the temptation kills me. I love everything in that store. But I walked in there full gear and ready to break my pocket for this man. I looked around, trying to remember what things he liked when we last came together. I end up spending $68 dollars on two shirts. Let me go to Ross or Marshall's; I'll come out dressed as a queen with $68 dollars. This is ridiculous. I'm still not even done with his birthday shopping; I'm just waiting on my next pay check to come in. Moral of the story: Urban Outfitters is out to get you and your money. Don't ever go there; you'll fall in love and be broke within a week. Hey, it's all worth it when you find the right guy you wanna spoil.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
