Thank You To The Teachers That Taught Me More Than Just School Work

Thank you for all the sacrifices and time you spent outside the classroom to help me.

When I was a child, I was fortunate to have such incredible teachers. Now that I am in college, I realized that teachers dedicate their lives to their students. They have to get to school before the students and they leave their work after the students. They are responsible for creating the successful students, they have to deal with parents and students complaining about grades and often they have to stay after school to help struggling students. And unfortunately, they are under-compensated for their work.

So, wanted to tell all the amazing teachers that I had, thank you.

Thank you for always being so supportive of me.

You have always challenged me and but always said that I can do it.

Thank you for always sitting with me as I try to comprehend all this material.

If I ever needed help, you would stick around after school, or in office hours and go through the material with me. And you never said, "No, I'm too busy." You always said, "I will make time and we will go over it together."

Thank you for all the sacrifices that you made.

As a child, I never knew how hard teachers work. When I was a kid, I just assumed that a teachers job is to just teach. But there is so much more to being a teacher. Teachers are expected to be a mediator, role model, educator, and maybe even a social worker. They are basically responsible for their students lives from 9-3. And students aren't always the most well behaved. But teachers never showed that they are frustrated or stressed.

Thank you for truly enjoying the subject that you were teaching.

Because that passion inspired me to do better. Your passion and enthusiasm for the subject as inspired me to work even harder in school. It allowed me to see the value and importance of the subject that you were teaching.

Thank you for never telling me I was stupid, even though I said it to myself.

I don't understand certain STEM topics easily. I get overwhelmed by all the abstract topics that I feel like I should understand. I am not a good reader and writer. I can't analyze texts in depth. I always feel like an idiot because everyone around me seems to understand the reading or the concept easily and I don't. But you always said that 'it takes time and unfortunately there is never enough' or that "you are not an idiot, you just need to practice." That has honestly made a huge difference to me.

Thank you for all the sacrifices and time you spent outside the classroom to help me.

You guys work so many hours but you always make time to help me and other students. You care so much about your students and I definitely appreciate that.

And thank you for being an awesome role model.

I am lucky that I have such mentors and teachers that I admire and look up to.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
