To My Friends, Wow — Am I Glad I Found Y'all

Although none of us exactly know God's plan for our futures, I would like to believe they include each other.

To My Friends, Wow — Am I Glad I Found Y'all
Hollin Winters

Dear friends,

Thank you for being my friends. I never imagined there would be people in this world that would hold all my secrets, trust me with theirs, be honest with me, believe in me, and want to share some of the most memorable times of their lives with me!

Our slumber parties have only become more fun the older we have gotten, and even though we have changed from prank calling people to now watching and crying over our favorite movies together I have enjoyed every single one of them. Every late night snack, laugh that woke my parents and sleep walk/talk we experienced together are memories I will cherish for a lifetime.

Y'all are the people I not only look forward to being around but also dread having to leave behind. You will never truly know the impact you had on my life. All the mistakes you kept me from making, and the ones you made with me will be remembered forever. And although none of us exactly know God's plan for our futures, I would like to believe they include each other.

Thank you, friends, for every word of advice, inside joke, road trip, and slumber party. Thank you for being there for me even when I was being over dramatic. Thank you for being the people I can burden with my secrets, and know they are safe. Thank you for being so truly special to me, and never letting me forget how special I am to you. It is an honor to call you my friends, and I hope I am able to call you that for many more years. So as life continues on, and changes occur, I want you to forever know you have a friend in me. I love you from the bottom of my heart.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
