National Day of ______

National Day of ______

It is hard to miss the Breast Cancer Awareness Months or Pride month. Those two equally worthy causes are widely reported in the news but did you know there is a National Day, week and month of something almost every day?

You can find a complete month by month list of all the National days, weeks and months on the website.

The month of June ended with an important awareness day for those who are suffering from PTSD. Not every day is a huge deal like PTSD some are just fun like Sunglass day or talk like a Pirate Day.

In the month of July, we are all familiar with Independence Day on July 4th but then the nation gets to celebrate National Macaroni day on July 7th and then the wonder that is a Slurpee from 7-11 on 7-11. I know our house will celebrate both of these days.

You don’t have to go all out on these Days but knowing the day is celebrating something gives you a reason to have a little fun with dinner plans or social media posts. Some days can raise awareness of important issues and knowing that it is the day for that issue can open up a discussion.

To help with summer parties I am going to help you out with your celebration of National Penuche Day on July 22 below I will share with you a video I made of my Mother making her famous Penuche.

Peanut butter penuche is a family favorite. If you like sugar and peanut butter than it will quickly become a family favorite in your house too.

Check out the National Day Calendar listed above. You can use the days to make memories with loved ones. Sometimes the best memories come from the simplest things. The world is a serious place and the whole adulating thing can get tiring very fast. Some days you just need an excuse to have a little fun. Days like Saturday, July 22nd knowing it is the national junk food can make a normal boring weekend into something fun.

What national days, weeks or Months do you want to celebrate most? Check out the list and leave me your favorite day in the comments.

Happy Summertime

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.
