How Can I Make Someones day?

1. Generous Tips

Now, tips can become a tense topic nowadays and tends to blow up
very quickly. No surprise to that, every year the U.S ranks another one of our
states as the worst tippers. Currently being San Antonio, Texas (17.1
%). But somehow, the national average of a person eating out is 4.5
per times a week. With that said, workers are already experiencing fallacious
payment. What’s to say if you can't eat at home one-day and make someone else's day by leaving them 10-15 more dollars as a tip?

2. Donate

Get a new shirt or pair of shoes? Give someone else a new shirt and some new shoes too! Make an effort to give away anything old if you’re done with it. Someone else's trash may be someone else's treasure. Be sure to always remember that. 13 million articles of clothing are thrown into dumps every YEAR. Imagine how much that could help the less fortunate.. DONATE!

4. Sticky Note

The classic 'You look good today' passed around in class. Yet, seems to be one of the most effective ways to bring a smile to a face. Plus, the benefits of the sticky note is, if you aren't the social type, it remains anonymous (unless written otherwise). Write one when you get up and leave it somewhere you know someone will find it. Whether it’s at the bus stop, gas station, on the coffee you just finished at the cafe or even at work/school. Pick up that pen and pad!

5. Say Thank you

Everyday I watch people take others for granted. A janitor for instance, cleans up your mess every single day, and they rarely get the recognition that they deserve. Or even to the person holding the elevator, or filling up your cup of coke at dinner. I can assure you that every person doesn't hear it as much as they should. So, stop for two seconds to say that thank you to those who make this world what it is.

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.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
