The Remedy Diaries -- Blessed Thistle
herbs in white bowl fotografierende

Eating in college is one of the most difficult aspects of being away from home. When I was in high school, I lived a very structured lifestyle, since I was working and performing music on top of my regular class schedule. I would do a lot of meal prep, since I would oftentimes have little to no time to pick up or hand-make a meal, and because of my more active lifestyle on my feet, I was being relatively active almost every day.

However, once I moved out and started college, my dietary habits began to morph to the new, disorganized "typical college student" lifestyle. I began eating more processed foods, since they are usually much quicker to prepare, and I worked out less and less as the pressures of deadlines, exams, and assignments began to rise.

This lead me to create an asymbiotic relationship with my body, throwing its levels of glucose and fat cell production off, and in a negative direction. I began having difficulties with digestion, and felt sick to my stomach at times when I ate any size meal. I have recently discovered a natural remedy to these difficulties, called blessed thistle. This plant promotes healthy digestion, and the best (and easiest!) way to ingest it is as a tea, which I LOVE! The blessed thistle is easy to introduce to the body and, thus far, I have not experienced negative side effects from drinking this plant three times a day.

One thing I don't necessarily enjoy is the bitter taste, but oftentimes I add a half of a teaspoon of all-natural honey to balance the flavor for myself. If you'd like to learn more about this product, or if you're interested in buying blessed thistle for your own use, I recommend referencing this site for more information. Comment on the post if you've used blessed thistle, and what your experience has been!

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.
