You've been my best friend since I came into this world, you've taught me to stand up for myself, and to always go after what I want in life. Thank you for everything.

1. Thank you for giving me a backbone.

2. Thank you for being my toughest critic.

3. Thank you for being my best friend.

4. Thank you for teaching me how to stand up for myself.

5. Thank you for being there when my heart got broken.

6. Thank you for being my protector.

7. Thank you for teaching me how to be tough.

8. Thank you for letting me make mistakes.

9. Thank you for listening to me.

10. Thank you for letting me annoy you for 21 years.

You have been my greatest supporter and my touchest critic my entire life. You hold me accountable for my mistakes and give me praise where I earned it. You came to every dance recital, dropped me off at dance, and encouraged me to never stop doing what I love.

You've picked me up when I fall down, or tell me to "rub some dirt in it, you'll be fine", like when I played tee-ball and I got hit in the cheek with a bat. I can't put into words how much you've taught me throughout my life, starting with the fact that it's okay to play tee-ball in a tutu and cleats. And it's okay to get your heartbroken, but it all matters about how you pick yourself up and move forward in the aftermath.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
