A Thank You Letter To My Grandma
Jean McClellan

Dear Grandma,

I'll start with saying thank you for being the rock that holds our family together. Without you, we would stumble and fall. You are our strength, and I will always be thankful for that. Your love for your family shines on your face every day, and that is truly beautiful. You glow when you are able to speak of your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. You love each and every one of us with your entire heart. It's a love that can never be replaced.


Thank you for showing me how to find strength in struggles and how to handle tough obstacles with a sense of grace and dignity. Your will power and determination to succeed through every battle now shines through me. Thank you for believing in your faith. God is going to gladly welcome a woman of such class into his kingdom one day. You helped me have a closer relationship with God and you always encouraged me to let his presence shine brightly.

Thank you for being my number one fan through everything. You made me feel proud of even the littlest of accomplishments, and Lord knows you let everyone know how great I was when I accomplished something. Your never ending support helped shape my confidence into what it is today. You reminded me that it was okay if I didn't succeed, I was still very much loved.

Thank you for your humor and your countless moments of laughter, I will always carry those memories close to my heart. You have a laugh that is contagious and can you always make a joke out of everything. Positive thoughts and feelings radiates to every soul around you from the melody of your laughter.

Although you always know how to put a smile on my face, you also know how to put me in check. I am thankful for your honesty and always pushing me to achieve my absolute best. You know my strengths, and you will always call me out if I am not putting them to full use. You helped motivate me to conquer all of my battles and to never give up, nothing is worse than disappointing your grandma.

Thank you for always welcoming me with open arms. Even if it means that your house is always a mess, you open your arms to me, as well as the rest of the family, to the comfort of your home. Thank you for your generosity not only to me, but to everyone. At times I think that God may have made your soul a little too genuine because I know that you would give others everything you had until you were left with nothing. You are a selfless woman that will do anything for anyone, which is a trait that comes with such honor. You selflessly helped to mold me in the woman I am today, and I could never be grateful enough to carry some of the same qualities as you. Thank you for always spoiling me, though sometimes too much, and always feeding me when I'm hungry, which is 99% of the time. Thanksgiving at your house can never be beat, ever.

Lastly, thank you for showing me the true power of love. Your unconditional love taught me that love is the most powerful quality that humans can have. Love, and love alone, can heal any brokenness. Love can create smiles, laughter and strength. Love is a bond that can't be bought or broken. Love is gentle and love is kind. You have shown me the true meaning of love as you have showered it immensely upon me my entire life. I can only hope that one day I will be able to selflessly love another the way that you love our entire family. Thank you, grandma, for giving me a love that is so powerful that it is able to move mountains and mold me into the young woman I am today.

I love you more than words can describe,

Your "not so little" grandbaby

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

127945

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

120561

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

This Hair Mask Is Like A 5-Minute Head Detox — It's The Best Thing I've Ever Put On My Dry Scalp

It's perfect for anyone who's disguised their dandruff as snowflakes.

9354

- Like face masks, hair masks are a great way to do a more intense treatment that tackles more specific issues like dry strands or an itchy scalp.

- I don't necessarily suffer from dandruff, but my scalp can get a little itchy post-workout and in the colder months.

- I tried the Malin + Goetz Detox Scalp Mask and it was a game changer — my scalp felt cleaner, smoother, and more refreshed than ever in five quick minutes.

- The mask is a go-to for a clean detox of my hair and scalp after I've put a lot of product in my hair or done a lot of styling to it.

Like most self-proclaimed beauty guru and product junkie, I've been obsessed with my hair and hair products for decades. For me, the goal has always been to transform my dry, brittle strands into thick, shiny, and silky ones.

For that reason, I've spent a lot of time (and money) on styling and heat products that have, at times, made my hair look great at the expense of excess product buildup and heat damage.

Remember when thin eyebrows were in? Unfortunately, me too. If you've over-tweezed your eyebrows, you know how much of a painful and slow process it is to get them back to a "normal" shape — let alone trying to keep up with the newest trends that seem to come and go every other month.

But, what does that look like nowadays? A defined, thicker brow which, I will admit, takes a lot of time and practice to perfect.

I am a senior mechanical engineering major at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. Drexel already has a weird quarter term system, so classes began at the end of September. All undergraduate classes are online, either synchronous or asynchronous. However, most graduate classes are still in-person.

As of October 19th, Drexel has 14 active cases (13 students and 1 employee). There has been a total of 113 cases in the Drexel community (104 students and 9 employees).

This semester has been pretty rough for most students. Online classes may have some perks, but overall it's often harder to learn and remember the material. CofC just finished midterms and every student I know feels burned out. This is a very frustrating feeling and it feels like things will never return to the way they were. Remember to go easy on yourself and just do your best.

Your body image has a huge impact on your sex life — let's be real, intimacy includes your body.

It's normal to have your bad days when you're just not feeling it, but if the bad days are stacking up to tower the confident days, maybe it's time to start working on how you perceive yourself. Carrying shame around with you all day will crawl its way into the bedroom and kill your sex life. But don't worry, there are always ways to revive it. And, it starts with self-acceptance, self-respect, and self-feel goods.
