It's very common to kiss someone on New Year's when the clock strikes midnight. It's a new year so it's time to celebrate, right? Not all of us have the luxury of a significant other to kiss on New Year's whether they just aren't there to celebrate with, or we don't have one. But don't fret--there are many other people and things that you can kiss on New Year's!

1. Your Pet--Ok, I know some of us kiss our pets all the time, but on New Year's it can be all the more special! Our pets give us so much happiness year round so celebrate them and give them a smooch when the clock strikes midnight. (That is, if they won't scratch or try to bite you when you do that. Ahem, my cat).

2. Your Friends--A kiss on the cheek for you friends is a great way to ring in the New Year! They have been with you through thick and thin the last year so celebrate them! It also makes for some really cute pictures to post on social media (because who doesn't want to share their love for their friends?)

3. A Stranger--Ok, though I wouldn't personally do this, I know that it is a common thing to do. If you feel comfortable enough to do this (probably from a few too many drinks), then go ahead and kiss them. What's it gonna hurt and now you have a story to tell friends.

4. A Crush--This could be the perfect time to confess to your crush that you like them. And if they feel the same way back, it could make for a great kiss to celebrate the New Year with.

5. Your Family--If you're with your family on New Years, go ahead and share your New Year's kiss with them. They have been with you your whole life and it can be a great way to express how much you love them.

6. Yourself--And at the end of the night, when you're looking at yourself in the mirror, (probably a little bit tired and a lot a bit tipsy), blow yourself a kiss in the mirror because you are amazing and if anyone needs a kiss from yourself on New Year's it's yourself. (That made sense right?)

So instead of wallowing on New Year's that you have no one to kiss, remember that you have so many options. Have a happy New Year's Eve and may the odds of kissing someone or something, be ever in your favor.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
