Because of the recent success of Pokémon Go and the fact that nostalgia is hitting all us millennials hard in the face right now, I decided to make a list of all the emotions summer break is making us feel explained by none other than our favorite pocket monsters.

1. Most days you hate walking outside because it feels like Charmander is striking you with blaze attack.

2. But once you get past the heat and the sweat you can’t help but appreciate the beauty around you.

3. You try to avoid talking about your future plans with your family when you go back to visit but they always seem to get it out of you. Every single time.

4. The second you get off of work you make sure and meet up with the squad to eat and chill.

5. And later that night everyone gets together to eat again.

6. You don't have to wake up for an 8 AM lecture tomorrow so matter what time you have to get up the next morning for work you’re always ready to party.

7. And speaking of work, you’re really good at faking it till you make it.

8. You get very emotional when you realize that summer is going by much faster than you wanted it to.

9. You’ve come to the realization that you’ve lost all of your reading, writing and thinking skills over the long break.


10. But at the end of the summer when you look back, you’re truly thankful to all of your family and friends who gave you such a wonderful break.

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.
