As a guy who adores fashion, there is nothing I love more than pretending I'm in a 2000s teenage girl movie and having a mall montage. Trying on clothes is what I live for. My dad experienced the horrifying experience when we went to a department store in Scotland on a vacation and I had him holding about fifty different shirts alone for me to try on! But as a lover of retail and fashion, I have come to discover that in-person shopping is slowly falling off the face of the planet. I've come up with a few reasons as an explanation as to why nobody typically wants to go out shopping anymore.

1. Stores don't always carry what they do online

That GIF is an accurate representation of myself when I go to the store and ask where they carry the shirt I want, and they say, "Oh that's an online exclusive!" I don't even know why I bother going out to the store when I see it right there online because it isn't guaranteed to be at the store. This isn't just the case for clothes, it's the case for ALL shopping. Your mother could be on Target.com and see a lamp you want, but when she goes to buy it in the store, it isn't available in stores. For this reason is why most people I know just prefer to order their products online rather than to go gamble that it's in the store.

2. Interacting with people can be hard

Going to the store and interacting with the employees isn't easy for everybody. If you're like me, you will walk up to anybody and tell your life story, which is pretty fun. But, I would say that at least 75% of the people I know in my life don't feel as comfortable asking for help from the employees or even checking out with your purchases. It's totally understandable as some people get super anxious, or the employees are rude or maybe they just don't enjoy speaking to strangers. It's super common anxiety that even I have trouble just dealing with.

3. The online store has way more options than the physical store

Giphy

If only we could all walk out of stores with multiple bags full of purchases. Unfortunately, that isn't how it happens nowadays! This kinda goes along with my first reason. Imagine you walk into a store right? You walk in, and there are so many options for each article of clothing. Well, get this: Every store's online version has 10 TIMES the content to choose from. It can't even compare to all the options that you can scroll through on your phone. So which be honest, which would you choose?

I'm a guy with a passion for fashion, but it is becoming more and more of a digital industry. I've learned that if I want to enter the fashion world someday as a career, I have to know that sooner than later it's all going to be digital and hardly any physical work. It's sad, but it also opens up so much more room for creativity. All in all, I am somebody who prefers online shopping when possible. But don't get me wrong I love going out to the largest malls too! Besides, I would like to hope that I can have my fashion movie moments for the rest of my life!

XOXO, Jake

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
