Open Letter to My Lovely Momma

"Mothers and Daughters - they always share a special bond - though near or far apart - the words that would describe it - are written on the heart."

Open Letter to My Lovely Momma
My Image

I have written this quite a few times throughout my life, and every time I feel like it never does justice on what an amazing, caring, beautiful, kind, angel my mom is. How can you write about someone that's always been there for you, been your best friend, and picked you up when you were down and feel like you've somehow scratched the surface of someone like my mom?

I'm not sure, but I can try.

To my Momma,

A lady who has always thought of others before herself, a lady who always makes sure that I'm doing okay and tries to make me happy, a lady that truly has the kindest soul.

Thank you for teaching me to love myself despite my flaws, for making me calm when I'm anxious, for being there when I needed someone to talk to, for loving me unconditionally, and for constantly brightening my life.

Whenever I'm upset or worried about anything I'll think of you and how I'll get to talk to you soon and it immediately calms me down. Many people have told you you're an angel and it's completely true. You lighten up people's lives, you help people in more ways than you know, and you have the purest heart. You will do amazing things, you already have done amazing things for every person you've met.

I always wondered how I could be so lucky to have such an amazing mom. Not many people can say that they're mom is also their best friend and I'm happy to say that I can.

Thank you so much, Momma.

Thank you for always being there for me and being the sunshine in my life.

Please don't take my sunshine away. I don't know what I'd do without you.

I love you.

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.

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.
