Rule #1 of breakups.

Guys, You Don't Tell The Person You're Breaking Up With That They'll 'Meet Someone Amazing One Day'

SPOILER ALERT: Here's the thing: breaking up with someone on a reality dating show like "The Bachelor" isn't exactly a normal thing to do. I KNOW THAT. But if there's one thing I can say confidently, it's that everyone — whether on television or in real life — knows you do not... like absolutely do not... tell someone that they'll "meet someone amazing one day" while you're breaking up with them.

It's the unofficial first rule of breakups. Or at least I'm making it so.

In tonight's episode, we watched Pilot Pete (who's raised many red flags this season) say this exact phrase to Victoria P and Mykenna as he sent them home. Victoria scoffed at him and said something along the lines of "I know!" While Mykenna said (not verbatim) "Yea, well I wanted that to be you, Peter!"

Collectively, the two of their reactions were pretty much exactly what anyone could ever possibly say to that other than "Seriously, dude? WTF?"

Because 1. nobody wants to think about the person they'll date next while they're having their heartbroken and 2. nobody wants to hear that the "amazing person" they'll one day be with/marry won't be the person standing right in front of them.

All I can say is... if you take absolutely nothing else from this crazy season of "The Bachelor," you at least know what not to say during a breakup.

Because "you'll meet someone amazing one day" is just rubbing salt in the wound, which is always far from ideal.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
