Spring Break Tips for Self Care

Spring break is just around the corner, which means time for relaxation and a week’s worth break. When we think of the term “spring break”, we usually think of parties and drinks. But that’s not everything, nor should you have to feel pressured to do that if that’s not your thing. I personally like to use spring break as a time for self-care (i.e. journaling).

Here are some helpful ideas to have a relaxing spring break.

  1. Going on a walk - Now that spring is almost here and the weather is getting warmer, it’s a great opportunity to explore nature by taking a walk in the neighborhood, hiking, exploring the beach or a setting of your choice. The important thing is to take a breather and reconnect with nature.
  2. Reading - As a bookworm, I love using this time to catch up on books that are on my bucket list. There’s nothing more exciting than to delve into another world and escape reality.
  3. Watch a TV Show - This would also be the perfect time to catch up on your TV shows that you haven’t had the time to watch.
  4. Digital detox - You might want to use this time to unplug from technology, including social media and allow yourself to just be present with friends and family.
  5. Trying out a new hobby - This is also a great time to get into a new hobby. For myself, I’ve been wanting to practice web and graphic design.

When you allow yourself to rest and truly be present, you find that you’ll be better refreshed in the long run. Self-care should be an everyday occurrence but when we do have long breaks, we should make the most out of them.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
