Go get some shut-eye people!

No More All-Nighters

Coming fresh off of a total of six hours of sleep the past two days, I will cement this thought into my every day:

No. more. all. nighters.

Honestly, I'm probably lying to myself from the "inevitable", but let's talk about college and sleep.

As students, we have so a ton of responsibilities that we have to attend to every day. Academic duties are hardly the depth of those responsibilities. We study, work and maintain social relationships all while finding time for themselves and an appropriate number of hours of sleep daily.

Sometimes it's okay to slip and put more time to into one facet of life over the other, but time management and pace go a long way in preventing the dreaded all-nighter. Are two-three hours that you spend admiring your favorite memes or watching Netflix time spend appropriately? I'll argue yes, but realistically, those are hours that can be spent getting work done or a good night's sleep.

Often times sleep feels like a blessing, but in most cases, the amount of sleep that we get is a reflection of our work habits and for often than not the same vice versa. We generally blame our responsibilities for robbing us of precious resting time, but really we do it to ourselves.

College isn't so much about how difficult it is. It is more so about how much time is necessary to invest in it. Do yourself a favor and put appropriate hours and time into the things that you should, but also manage time for yourself. It's already hard being a student, don't make it difficult to be yourself too.

It goes without saying what July 4th symbolizes for Americans and undoubtedly its more important holiday. From parades to foods to speeches, all Americans know that it relates to the day when the 13 original colonies broke free of England, then ruled by King George III. A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
