The Sophomore Year Slump

The in-between newbie and the oldie.

The Sophomore Year Slump

Another year of school; whether it's high school or college, there is always that year where things are at a standstill. Where you're doing things, but don't feel as though you're moving forward. You get to school (first day of high school or move in day at college) and it just doesn't feel different. Like you never left and are just picking up where you left off. Everyone is the same, maybe new teachers/professors and classes, but other than that it's the same.

Every year is a fresh start, but what you do with it is your decision. You might have the same friends from the year before or you just drift away from them. Maybe you realize that you grew up a little and need friends who are at that same point in their lives. But you keep yourself busy despite the outside factors and go on trucking along. Some might get to in depth on just going on with their routine and not admit they have a problem, but others will try to change their ways from the year before which will work for them. Though the people who are on their own agenda swirl into a "thing" that may not be good for them; a funk as some might call it.

There is not a clear way of getting rid of or past this "funk", but it could be fixed with some love from others. The best piece of advice I could give you would be to always talk to family. Although they may not know your every move, if you're stuck in a situation, they are the ones to call no matter what. Never underestimate the power of family and what they can do to help you.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
