Nobody pray for me
Even a day for me
Way (yeah, yeah!)

That lyric was off of Kendrick Lamar's famous song HUMBLE. Being humble is one of the best personality traits you can have. It generally shows that you care about others and the meaning of life itself. It makes selfless and full of love to give.

1. Always think of others.

One of the biggest ways of staying humble is to always be considerate of other people. It could be from the smallest thing from opening the door for someone or giving someone something for their birthday. Even if you don't know how to help someone in a certain situation, just simply being there and showing your love for them shows a lot about you.

Especially around the holidays, it can be hard for a lot of people because they want to celebrate and be with people that they love and be happy but they can't for various personal reasons. Imagine showing a simple act of humbleness to a random person and that actually makes their whole day and maybe could have even been the nicest thing that has happened to them in a really long time? Amazing right?

2. Body language.

Yes, body language. It is important that you look approachable. You don't want people to see you hunched over or looking like your in a grumpy mood. Stand up straight with your shoulder back with confidence. This gives the impression that you are comfortable with your own self and that actually tends to rub off on others in a positive way. Coming from personal experience, when I talk to people, they instantly opened up to me very quickly because of how I looked like I was comfortable in my own skin. Eye contact with people is also important. It gives you the impression that you are social and simply optimistic about things.

3. How you present your dialogue.

Talking... this is one of the most important parts about learning to be humble. When you speak, you actually want to sound bubbly with confidence in your voice. This sends off vibes that you are easy to talk to and you are very outspoken to others. You always want to use manners and have very attentive listening when the other person is talking. Another tip is to find ways you can relate to that person on their end. Even if you don't, try thinking of someone else you know that can relate and keep it going that way. Or if you can't do that either, you can ask them questions regarding what it is, to let them know you are curious and caring. It can make people feel like their not alone and make them feel relatable to you. That can also provide a sense of comfort.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
