Graduation is upon very many of us. Whether it be college or high school, many people are in the graduation season. We must remember that graduation is not the end, it is a new beginning. Many things are yet to come for everyone, and this is just one step to what the future holds.

High school graduation is a huge step in a person's life. For some, it's frightening because they don't know if they'll make it or not. For others, it's the best thing for them. As we end one part of our lives, we begin another. Graduation marks the end of our childhood era and the beginning of adulthood.

Now that we're graduated, we are on our own. It's up to us to determine where we will go in life and what steps we must take to get there. Now is the time for us to grow up and mature and take care of ourselves. This marks the rest of our lives. We don't get to run to mom and dad when something goes wrong; we have to handle it like adults and learn how to deal with situations that our parents used to take care of.

As we reach this level of maturity, we reach new responsibilities and new opportunities. But, it's up to us whether or not to go for the opportunities ahead of us. We make the choices now. And those choices will lead us in whatever direction we are meant to go.

We graduated because we are ready. We are ready for this new stage in our lives. We are ready to move on and become adults. We are ready for our future.

As we move on, we leave some behind, but only to find new friends and soulmates that will be oh so important in our lives. We leave the safety of our parents' home to go and explore the world as freshly born adults.

To everyone graduating, or who has already graduated. You are making so many people proud. You are going to do incredible things and you are going to change the world. Keep doing what you're doing and pursue the dreams even when people say you can't.

This is your life. It's up to you. So, make it what you want.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
