Remember why you chose this path

An Open Letter To The Struggling Nursing Student

Dear Nursing student,

Second semester has just begun, but as a fellow Nursing student, I know that you are already swamped with tons of homework, exams, classes, clinical, labs, and studying. Whether you are the pre-nursing student trying to pass Anatomy & Physiology, Chemistry, Statistics, and any other gen-ed requirement, to the Nursing student already in the program, you might be finding that second semester is bringing a heavy load.

You can already see yourself sitting in the library for endless hours this semester because you know it's going to be a rough one. You can already feel the stress you are going to feel when you have 2 papers and 3 exams all in the same week. Second semester is already starting to make you feel like you don't know if you can handle another hard semester.

You see your friends in other majors barely having any homework and you get envious. You wish you had more free time. You might not admit to it, but I bet sometimes you even wish you hadn't chosen Nursing as your major...

Here is some advice for you, little nursing student: You can do this. You chose to pursue a degree in nursing for a reason. Every time you start to resent your decision, remember why you chose this wonderful career path.

Remember how passionate you are about this field of work. Think about how someday you will help someone feel better when they are sick. You will show your compassion and dedication one day. One day, you will impact a patient's life. Think about it, you can do this.

I wish you nothing but the best this semester. All the late nights in the library and the stress will all be worth it one day, I promise.

Love,

A fellow struggling Nursing student

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
