Why You  Should Travel More

I felt inspired to write about traveling this week because, by the time you are reading this, I will be across the pond exploring France! Yes, you read that correctly. Don't worry, I will have another article when I get back where I discuss my adventures abroad and share some exciting memories with you all. For now, I think it is important to discuss the fact that traveling can be a great experience for everyone and people need to get out more and see what our world has to offer.

For me personally, traveling is so much fun and it opens my eyes to how great and vast our world really is. Whether you go on a quick road trip somewhere new in your home state, or if you fly thousands of miles around the world, either way, it is always a fun and adventurous time. I know that even if I go on a little road trip to a new beach, that it is always interesting because I am exploring a new environment, but I love the beach so it is a win-win scenario for me.

I know you may be thinking that traveling can become costly, especially if you are interested in traveling to different countries. However, I believe that spending money on experiences is much more valuable than materialistic items. Sure, having a fancy car or a big boat is nice and all, but being able to travel somewhere you have never been before and to be immersed in a different culture, that is truly money well spent in my book.

That is why saving money whenever you can is so important and learning to spend your money wisely is always a good idea as well. That way, you have extra cash in the bank to go out and see the world, even if you are on a budget.

Traveling should be a fun time for everyone and I truly believe that it helps us grow as individuals. We become so used to our daily lives that when we go somewhere new, at first, it can feel a little intimidating. However, after you get acquainted, you start to realize how beautiful that place is and you learn to appreciate life more.

We only get one life to live, so that is why everyone should travel as often as possible. Go out and explore the world, even if you just take a short road trip somewhere new. You don't have to fly halfway across the world to travel and have fun. So, what are you waiting for? Go make some memories that will last a lifetime!

PS: be on the look-out for my travel article all about my experience traveling across Europe when I get back!

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
