Dahlia and Sam

How long they've been together:

"We have been together over a year, but we’ve been in love for ten years." - Dahlia

How they meet:

"We met in sixth grade when he sat behind me in reading class and kicked my chair repeatedly until I talked to him." - Dahlia

The most romantic thing to ever happen to them:

"Sam and I went to different high schools, he went to tech school and I went to public school. He dressed up in his military dress blues and came to my high school's senior prom to confess his love and dance with me, but I was not there.

Later that year, Sam flew from Arizona, where he was living, back home to Connecticut in May 2016. He borrowed a friend's car and drove to my house. He walked to my back door and saw that there were no cars in the driveway, but that my kitchen light was on. He said he knows all Italians leave their kitchen lights on when no one is home, so he drew the conclusion that I was not there, which was true. So he took this as a sign that it wasn't meant to be, and flew back to Arizona without further reaching out to me. I didn't learn about this until we re-connected the following year...

We spent four hours talking in a cafe, and all of a sudden we realized the cafe had been closed and they were cleaning up to go home. So we got in my car and we drove to Miller's Pond State Park in our hometown of Middletown, Connecticut, and I was so nervous that I forgot the way to get there and Sam had to pull it up on GPS so we could get there. It was January and the lake was frozen over, and Sam taught me how to skip rocks on the frozen lake so it makes a sound like birds chirping as the rock skips." - Dahlia

Their favorite memory:

"My favorite memory of us is when we woke up at 4 a.m. and drove to the beach in Rhode Island to watch the sunrise. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen or done." - Dahlia

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use.
