Work together to make others better

That Silent Cry For Help

In college, we all have our own problems and our own situations that we have to deal with no matter the day. Yes, we have friends that we can vent to and family that we can vent to as well but there is nothing like someone who actually has your back.

Stress is serious and it can lead to depression. In college, nobody and I repeat NOBODY should be depressed. When you talk to your fellow peers instead of getting "the scoop" ask them how they feel.

Most of the time when we say we are "fine" we aren't always fine. When a person isn't genuinely happy it tends to show in their actions, their physical appearance, in the way they talk and the way they go about doing things. When they aren't happy it brings the whole mood down and I know you feel it.

If you feel the mood dying or changing address it. Your friend/peer is probably going through some things. You can't accept "fine" or "I'm okay" for an answer. As soon as you hear those verbal signs ACT on it!

Everybody can't feel great or good all the time but "fine" and "I'm okay" isn't acceptable all the time. You never know, take your friend to his/her favorite place, do something with them and maybe their problems will all come out. You may not be able to solve them all but at least you were there to listen.

Not only you were there to listen, you serve as a witness to their inner demons. Life is tough, let's all work together to make others better. When you help others, it helps you.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
