Making the Most of Your Senior Year in High School

Congradulations! You've gotten in a school (or two. Or three) and you're heading to college in the fall (or winter). You (and your family) are probably deciding what you need to bring, and how to prepare yourself for college. But hold on! You still got the rest of Senior Year left to enjoy. Here are 5 tips to make the most of it:

Go to Social Events

It's probably going to be the last time (save reunions and social media) that you're going to see your classmates. Go to social events, spend time with them, if you don't like to socialize or hate going to parties (like me), strike up a conversation.

Who knows the next time you're going to be back in town long enough to see the school play or the football game? Nows your chance. Go! Go now!

Prom!

Get all fancied up and go to prom and/or post-prom! You don't need a limo or a date (I didn't have either the first time I went, and only the limo the second time), and going with a group of friends is a lot less stressful.

Exchange contact info

Like I've said before, talk with classmates, share instas, snapchats, phone numbers, whatever. Find out if there's anyone going to your school or place of work.

Celebrate!

You just completed 13 years or more years of schooling! Time to kick back and relax until it's time for college/work force/basic.

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.

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.
