An Open Letter to the Guy Who Played Me

You were controlling, and that's not OK

An Open Letter to the Guy Who Played Me
Huffington Post

I didn’t deserve what you did to me. No one deserves what you did to me.

We started talking on social media before we began attending the same college. We became friends instantly, and we got super close. I was still with a boyfriend, and I don’t really remember what you were doing. Soon enough, my boyfriend and I broke up, and you started your crap.

You flirted with me, and I flirted back. We had a fun, flirty friendship. And then you told me that you kinda liked me, and I began to kinda like you. This happened the entire summer. You told me that you had made some mistakes and talked to other girls, and I said whatever, I don’t care, we’re not together. While I was talking to a guy and I told you and you said that it wasn’t okay. This was where the manipulation began.

You had a spell on me; you had me wrapped around your finger, and you took advantage of that. I was talking to a different guy who we were both friends with. You were okay, but you wanted to keep your control over me, so you did as much as possible to maintain it.

Fast forward to the first week of college. I was in a friend’s room, and you stumbled in drunk. You kept trying to hit on me and I kept trying to deny you. I knew that you had been with other girls the entire time, and I didn’t want to be put in that group. But I gave in; little did I know that would be one of the biggest mistakes of my life.

The very next day you called me a psycho and that I needed to stay away from you. I didn’t understand why, especially since I had done absolutely nothing to be called that. I think the worst part of being called a psycho was that it came from you. I opened up to you more than anyone else at school, and I told you that I had anxiety disorder. I told you how much I had been hurt in the past by guys, and you continued that for me. But, I need to thank you for that.

Thank you for making me realize that I deserve nothing but the best. Thank you for making me realize that I should be single for my first year of college. Thank you for making me realize that I can’t judge a book by its cover. These are all valuable lessons, but this does not make what you did okay.

No one, and I mean, absolutely no one deserves to be treated the way you treated me. I know you still don’t think you did anything wrong, especially since you tried to talk to me months after what happened. I hope you know, if you even read this, that you were wrong to do this. I really hope that you do not do this to anyone else.

I hope people who read this see if they’re in a controlling relationship, or if they’re getting played, and I hope that they get out if they are.

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.

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.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
