Pride Isn't Canceled And It Never Will Be — It's Not Just An Event, It's A Feeling

It's way deeper than just a party.

Pride Isn't Canceled And It Never Will Be — It's Not Just An Event, It's A Feeling

June is Pride month. It's a time for the LGBTQ community to, well, be proud of who we are. It's a time to celebrate the people who came before us, and fought for us to have the rights we have today.

Traditionally, Pride month is celebrated by having massive parties, parades, and events. People show up to have fun, watch performances, and connect with the community. However, thanks to Miss Rona, we can't do that this year.

But that doesn't mean pride month has to be a bust.

Many Pride festivities are online this year, where several musical guests, like Katy Perry and Adam Lambert, are set to perform, and others, like SuperFruit, are set to host.

But even if you aren't watching those streams, and I don't blame you, those streams take forever and aren't always reliable, you can still celebrate pride.

Pride is a feeling.

Pride is about being proud of who you are, and not being afraid to show it. Pride is also about having fun and celebrating, no matter where you are.

I've been celebrating pride by rewatching "Drag Race," ordering food, and listening to Chromatica and Aly & AJ, in the comfort of my own home. And it's glorious.

So this Pride, don't feel bad about not being able to go to bars or parties. Just create your own in the safety of your own home.

Because we can't cancel Pride, and we never will.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
