2017 went by in the blink of an eye and it's crazy to think we already just started another year. For those of you that continuously write "2016", or some other past year on your papers, this is going to be especially hard for you. For everyone else, here is your chance to start off the year right, surrounded by the people and things you love. It's exciting and refreshing to have a clean slate, and hopefully, we'll make the most of it!

It's the start of something new

Happy New Year!!! 2018 is here and is going to be the best year yet, right? With everyone making resolutions, there will definitely be some new habits, thoughts, ideas, and actions carried out this year. It's undoubtedly the start of something new, and hopefully better!

It's out with the old, & in with the new

Coming upon the New Year, thinking about the things you want to say goodbye to in 2018 and about the things you want to keep 2018 is essential. Goodbye iTunes gift cards, and hello Apple Music.

Now or never

New Years is a fresh start, and is a time when you feel like you can conquer anything and everything. Now is the time to do it, and don't wait, or it'll likely never happen.

Breaking Free

Although getting over bad habits is hard, there is no better time to break them then the new year. Leave them in the past, and better yourself in the present. Break free from negative stereotypes, hurtful words, and the status quo, you're better than that.

I gotta go my own way

There are toxic people and things in everyone's lives. Sorry to that "friend" who takes and takes and takes and never gives, or the pair of shoes that always gives me blisters, but you're getting left in 2017. There's no room for you in my life anymore.

Getcha head in the game

Maybe first semester was a little rocky for you. Maybe you're just getting back into the scholastic mindset after a long summer, or it was tailgate season and school simply just came second. Whatever the reason, now is the time to buckle down and really focus on school, and make this the semester that you do your absolute best.

Bop to the Top

.....of your game. Like I said, maybe last semester was slow. In order for this semester to be the absolute best, you want to be on top of the world in all respects: health, school, friendships, partying, sleep, family, relationships, fitness, or even being a better person.


For bad habits to be gone for good, the good ones need to replace them every, single, day. Yeah, maybe after those good habits are established then you can have a break every now and then. However, right now the good ones need to be put into place everyday for them to work.


Above all, you want this year to be fabulous, and it will be. Whatever you decide to do and whoever you decide to be, it's never too late. Make 2018 the best year yet and have it be absolutely fabulous.

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

9 Reasons 'The Wilds' Should Be Your Next Binge Watch

The Wilds is the Best New Show on Amazon Prime


As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.
