A Love Letter To My Boyfriend For Valentine's Day

Simply because it's that time of year when it is socially acceptable to be over the top mushy gushy.

A Love Letter To My Boyfriend For Valentine's Day

Hi Love,

I know sappy romance isn't really your style, but I couldn't resist pouring my heart out to you in honor of the cheesiest holiday in the history of the world. I promise not to get too deep. I just want to tell you how much I appreciate you and enjoy having you as a part of my everyday life. You've brought so many laughs, butterflies, and new experiences into my world and for that, I could not be more grateful. Okay, maybe I'll get a little deep. You know me.

I want to say thank you to you for a couple of things that I don't acknowledge nearly enough. Thank you for sitting through countless chick flicks, Disney movies and episodes of "Grey's Anatomy." You would probably rather be flushing yourself down the toilet than watching "Beauty and the Beast" for the tenth time, but you always push through. Thank you for holding my hand and hair when I'm sick. You're probably petrified that you're going to be the next victim of my illness, yet you still lie down with me and tell me it's all going to get better soon. Thank you for treating my family like they're your own and coming to every party, ugly sweater and all. Thank you for picking up the phone when I call you to go off on a tangent for two hours about who knows what. Thank you for warming up to my friends so quickly and showing them the side of you that makes me proud to be your girlfriend -- the side that is hilarious, sarcastic, sweet and thoughtful.

Before there was an "us" I had absolutely no knowledge about cars -- trucks in particular. You now have me going to truck pulls and mud-themed festivals. You've proven to me that steak is its own food group and can be eaten multiple times a week. You've shown me what it's like to be absolutely selfless and how to put others before myself. Above all, you've given me room to grow as my own individual while being my number one fan.

We probably won't make a big fuss out of Valentine's Day. There won't be any giant teddy bears or grand gestures of writing our names in the sky. No need for a bouquet of roses or heart-shaped jewelry to please this girl: I envision our day together consisting of watching a movie (you can pick this time), taking a nap and ordering takeout. To me, there is no place more special than where I am with you. We could sit on the floor staring at each other all day or go to the fanciest restaurant in town. Either way, I'd still feel like the luckiest girl in the world just to call you mine.

Thank you for being you not only around this time of year, but every day of the year. You are truly one of a kind.

Happy Valentine's Day.

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.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
