Is This Semester Going In A Flash?

I cannot believe that we are this far into this semester

Is This Semester Going In A Flash?

If you are able to look at your syllabus you can see that Spring Break is coming up faster than I thought. I was putting together my calendar and realized that spring break is coming up in less than two weeks. I started to freak out and realize that I have no plans for spring break and I do not know what I am going to do. I would have to say the reason why I did not know that spring break was coming so fast was because of the weather.

This weather has been absolutely crazy. One day it is sunny, then the next day cold, then snow, then rain, and everything else. I would not be surprised if there is a tornado that comes one just because of the amount of crazy weather that Wisconsin has been having. I would say that I am very tired of the weather, but I am also excited about Spring Break. I do wish that I had plans, but sadly I do not.

The funny aspect of spring break is the fact that once spring break is over then April is here and then we have Easter break and then before you know that summer is going to be here. This semester is going by very quickly and I cannot wait for summer break to get here. I am hoping that the weather does get a lot better but I am not holding my breath when it comes to that. Since this will be my last summer before I graduate I have to live it up and I hope that I have a lot of fun.

I would say that the spring semester is the one that always goes by the fastest. The main reason is that it is shorter, and people just want to be done with school and head home or on vacation for the summer. Spring break is something that everyone can get excited about since it is that one time of the semester that you are able to get a break. So to those who are going on vacation, have a great vacation, and to those who are not, just spend some time and relax! You deserved it!

The final thing I would like to say is that this semester has been very stressful, but the end is almost near. For the seniors, they cannot wait to finally graduate and just get out in the world and live their life. For everyone else, it is one less year of college and they are moving up in the world. As I said, this semester has been very stressful and I cannot wait until it is over. I know I share this idea with so many others. We just need to hang on and get through the rest of this. So have a great spring break and good luck getting through the rest of the semester!

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.
