You are always thinking of new marketing techniques (such as new band names??). You set your goals high and never give up, even after you fail. Even when everyone around you believes that your aspirations are too high, and unachievable, you do things your way and surprise everyone by making it big.

Education Majors

Leslie Knope

You're super creative, so your classroom will stay vibrant, colorful, and of course ORGANIZED! You put everyone (your students) needs in front of your own, even if it means loosing sleep, forgetting meals, or even days without showers (okay, maybe don't skip the shower). While everyone in the adult world thinks you're way too bouncy and peppy, your students adore you and think you're the best teacher they've ever had.

Nursing Majors

Who better to describe a nursing major than a TV nurse?! Like Ann, you are all about fun and partying, but work (or school, for now) always comes first. People's lives are in your hands! You're patients are number one, even when your crazy BFF would rather you spent the night breaking into construction sites to begin building her park.

Psychology Majors

Even though you tell people "Shut up, I'm not trying to get inside of your mind" we all know the truth. You're a good person, of course, so even though you can figure out a person and know how to destroy them, you only use your powers for good. You'll never admit it to your friends, but you really love to help people. Not in the way that most help, though, you aren't 100% concerned with their physical well-being, but you're all about where their minds are at.

Engineering Majors

Ben Wyatt

You are a total nerd. It goes beyond the tiny bit of nerd that everyone has in them to something that no one understand but yourself and your other hardcore nerd friends. You often make jokes that would be hilarious to your engineer friends, but with your other friends, you hear crickets. Everyone knows you're crazy smart, but no one ever asks you for tutoring help, because they know you're terrible at explaining why a problem is solved the way it is.

Communications Majors

Tom Haverford

You are a social butterfly! You are constantly connected to what is in the now. You always do your friends the courtesy of keeping them updated on the latest news, fashion, what the celebrities are up to, etc. even when they don't act like they care, you know they really do.

Every day, rain or shine, you are out for your daily run. Usually, just a quick warm up of 10+ miles. Health and fitness is your life, which is why you chose this as your career field.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
