Family is forever.

Why It's Important To Spend Time With Your Family
Theresa Carcaldi

I love spending time with my family. There is nothing better than coming home from a long day at work and simply sitting on the couch with my family, eating a heated-up dinner, and watching "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune" together.

I look forward to Sunday morning grocery shopping with Mom. Or rewatching the "Harry Potter" films with Dad on a Saturday. Or just simply joking around and being our weird selves with my brother.

I look forward to the time spent with my family because I know they are the people that have always loved me and supported me, and will continue to love and support me until the end of time. I love spending time with them because they have shaped who I am. They are filled with stories from our family's past, with stories from their own childhood, with stories of their younger adventures that continually surprise me every time I learn something new. Most importantly, I love spending time with my family because I can be my truest self in a judgment-free zone.

Your family will always have your back--even when you momentarily turn yours away. At the end of the day, family will always be there. And that is why I love spending time with them.

Family truly is forever--if you haven't learned to embrace them yet, take a chance and learn. You won't regret it.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university.
