Everything needs to revolve around us. Unlike people who turn attention away from them, we need all eyes on us twenty-four seven. While many shy away from being the center of attention, being the center of attention comes naturally to us. Here a few things those are common among attention lovers:

1. We spend a lot of time getting ready.

We love all eyes on us at all times, we take forever to get ready even if it's going to the grocery store.

2. We live for compliments.

We love being noticed and complimented. When someone compliments us, it makes us love being the center of attention even more.

3. We love to be around people.

Being around friends and family makes us super happy, they understand us and our attention-seeking personalities.

4. We are always down for a good time.

We are the party. We come prepared to make the best in every situation.

5. We belong on Gossip Girl.

Every attention lover needs to know the 411 on every situation, even if it doesn't involve them.

6. We are loud.

We talk loud, we want others to hear us. It's in our personality.

7. People think we're dramatic.

Okay, so maybe we are. We over exaggerate things because we want people to pay attention.

8. We live for meeting new people and new experiences.

There is no such thing as an awkward first conversation. We take full interest in meeting and conversing with new people.

9. We love to make people laugh.

Cracking jokes and making fun of people in a joking manner is what we do; we love the attention people give us for being funny.

10. Sometimes we seem conceded.

What can we say? We love attention and will do anything for it.

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.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
