Thanksgiving break is finally here, and I would cry tears of joy, but I'm too tired!

Thanksgiving Break, as depicted by Friends.

Thanksgiving Break is finally here, and students are rejoicing. I, for one, have never been so ready for a break in my entire life. I'm ready to relax and pretend I don't have any responsibilities for a few days! (Key word- pretend) Here's a brief overview of what this week will consist of for me:

1. Sleep

I have personally never been so tired, and I cannot wait to sleep without feeling like I'm neglecting some type or commitment or assignment that I could be working on.

2. Non-Caf Food

I cannot over stress my excitement for some home-cooked food. The caf throws my stomach all out of whack, and it'll be nice to enjoy a meal without feeling like I spent an hour inhaling air, followed by scrounging around the dorm for more food.

3. Family

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

I'm not one to typically get "home sick," but this year I am going to love on my family until they're pushing me out the door and back to school. I've missed them.

4. Baggy Clothes

Thanksgiving is not the day for my finest attire. The only curve I plan on showing off is my food baby from all that turkey, and don't forget the pecan pie!

5. And Of Course, the Embarrassing Moments

Every family gathering has those inevitable embarrassing moments, whether it's an uncalled-for belch at the dinner table, an open fly during a family photo, or that awkward smile you hold when your not-so-familiar relative is asking you questions or cracking jokes that you honestly do not understand. The best thing to do is embrace them all!

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
