My Thank You To This Fall Semester At SUNY Old Westbury

I will never regret chasing my dream.

My Thank You To This Fall Semester At SUNY Old Westbury
SUNY Old Westbury

In the seven years I have been in and out of college this semester has been the best one after having spent a semester in Disney. Coming back from having spent time away from school is usually difficult for me, but since I started going after the things I wanted I started loving school for once.

School has been more of a challenge for me than anything. From having learning disabilities to not figuring out what I want to do in life I never really saw eye to eye with school. After failed attempts of going after what I thought I wanted I let go of all my fears and went for what I want.

Deep down I knew I needed to be going to school for Communications. I needed to be attempting the journalism and broadcast production side of things. This semester I finally did that.

While I began my journey in the Fall 2015 semester it wasn’t until this semester that I got to learn the skills I needed and put them to use. I took a variety of classes that set me on the right path to what I wanted as well as the college mandated courses that may be helpful to have now that I look back on them.

The best part of this semester was getting to learn from people in the field and hearing their real life experiences. It makes everything that is about to come my way seem more exciting.

As exciting as everything was this semester there were a few academic bumps along the way. Everyday is a learning experience with new people and professors are no exception to that. Some were a little harder than others to communicate with but struggles aside the outcomes resulted in good grades.

I know there is more struggles to come my way as I enter my final semester of college this coming spring. The struggle to find a summer internship to earn my degree and create a portfolio for potential employers is ahead of me and already weighing me down. But as finals approach as well as the end of my college career I can’t help but be happy that I finally did it. No matter what happens in life, whether I make it or not, I will never regret tackling my academic fears and chasing my dream.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
