I Have Everything I Need In Life, But One Thing Is Missing

Nothing matters if one big thing isn't there.

I Have Everything I Need In Life, But One Thing Is Missing

Have you ever felt that something was missing from your life?

I don’t think I have ever felt like that until now. At this stage of my life, I feel like I have everything, but one certain thing, and I can’t point out what it is.

Growing up, I was fortunate enough to not "want" anything, and anything that I did want, I got. And even now, I still believe that I have it all.

I am blessed to have such caring parents who pay for literally everything I have- phone, car, insurance, rent, etc. I have a good paying job and school is fully paid for through scholarships. And no, I am definitely not trying to brag about these things because I am truly thankful and humble.

You would think that because I have these things being paid for that I shouldn’t have anything to be down about but that’s not the case.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate these things being paid for, and the nice things that I have, but in the end, it doesn’t really mean anything to me. All of it is materialistic and doesn’t really fill that missing piece that I feel is missing right now.

I love the opportunity of being able to go to college, but sometimes I question, “is it worth it?”

I just feel like maybe what I am missing is something that is outside of college. Maybe an opportunity that I’ve always wanted, like having that chance to travel the world; something exciting.

Being in college, you see the same stuff, hear about the same stuff, do the same stuff. Tailgates and parties and Two Keys will always be fun, however, what else is there? I just feel like I need something new.

I graduate next May and I believe that I lived out the college experience for the most part. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or what, but I am happy it’s slowly coming to an end. Things here are just starting to become old and I can’t get with it anymore.

Hopefully, before I leave here, I’ll find that missing piece so that I know I was just being dramatic. But honestly, nothing is showing yet.

I know that this article was all over the place, but hopefully some of y'all can relate. We’ll figure it out. Simple.

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. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

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, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


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.
