A Letter To My Dad

Thank you for always being there for me.

A Letter To My Dad
Rebecca Najdzinski

Dear Dad,

Thank you for being my dad. Thank you for throwing around the baseball with me, taking me to the park, teaching me how to drive, helping me set up a bank account, and always supporting me. Thank you for filling my childhood with games and laughs; you’ve given me memories that will last a lifetime.

I know I don’t and never will be able to express how much you mean to me. I appreciate everything you have done for me and continue to do. You have helped shaped me into the person I am today. You have shown me through example on how much I can accomplish if I work hard enough for it. Thank you for giving me a good life. There are so many people who are not as lucky as I am to have such a wonderful dad like you in their life.

I know life consists of a lot of twists and turns; and I want to say that I think you are strong. Not everyone survives the hardships life throws at them, but you always continue to fight. Thank you for showing me what strength is and showing me I am stronger than I think. Wherever life decides to take me I know I will make it through having you right next to me.

As I get older I know I will not always live with you. But I want you to know that you have well prepared me for life, and I am not afraid to go out and embrace the world. You have given me the skills and lessons necessary to survive and without you I would not be who I am today. So thank you for giving me the greatest gifts you could give; your time, love, knowledge, and patience.

No matter how old I am or how far away I may be I will always be your child. A child that loves you more than she/he will ever be able to express.

Thank you for everything Dad. I love you to the moon and back.

Love Always

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.
