Remember, Your Parents Will Always Love You

Your parents just want to know that you're still alive

Remember, Your Parents Will Always Love You

This one is for all of the parents of college students, remember that your parents love you. I can't count the amount of times that I have lashed out at my mom for "nagging" me whenever I was stressed. They love you, and they mean the best their questions about how dark it is, are you walking alone and whether or not you're eating are just because they want to make sure you're safe its not like they can cook you meals and ship them to you every day but with how cafeteria food is boy do I wish. What I wouldn't give for some of my mimi's broccoli casserole once a week or maybe just some baked beans. Parents have trouble letting go, especially when their child is going through the most stressful time of their life and they can't be there to "hold their hand" or make sure that they're physically ok and mentally stable. It's not that they want to know everything you do daily, but they do want to know that you're remembering to help yourself and not just hanging out with friends and neglecting any sense of responsibility or drive for your class work i.e. me freshman year.

I know guys, that sometimes you just don't want to hear another "are you ok?" or "what's for lunch today?" but also remember ignoring them won't make it any better if anything they only get upset and then you have to hear about that too. Remember to give them a hug when you can, and a call once a week doesn't kill anybody even I am guilty of this. We all just want to live life and sometimes we forget that our parents still need to know that we're alive for one and not just by our Facebook pictures. Being a student begins to become overwhelming and the people that support us have our back, so we have to remember to have theirs. Those three little words can change how a day goes, and parents have just as much stress attempting to fund our college as we do attempting to make it through.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
