They don't always like you, but your family will always love you.

Nothing in the world compares to family. Nobody can replace them and nobody can get rid of them. I always hear the expression that friends come and go but family is forever. It seems like a cliche saying but it is so true. No matter how deep you dig yourself into a hole, your family will always pull you out.

I love spending time with my family. My grandpa is an amazing man. I call him Papa. He always goes out of his way to make sure that I am comfortable. We have these wonderful conversations about life, and sometimes those conversations are sprinkled with some old fashion humor that I have grown accustomed to.

My grandma, or Nana as I like to call her, always makes me laugh. She still carries herself as though she is 20 years old and her personality will forever be young. While she is fun and lively she always maintains her lady-like qualities. The conversations with her, most of which go a mile a minute, are full of laughter and kindness.

My brother is and will always be my best friend. We are always messing with each other, yet still there right away to make sure the other is ok. We have always had a special bond because we are so similar personality wise and because we are so close in age. We are practically twins and I wouldn't have it any other way.

My dad is the most like me. We both have an easy temperament and enjoy a relaxing day at home. I feel that my relationship with my dad is a little bit different than they typical relationship between a father and his daughter. I will talk to him about almost anything, and he is always there to listen.

Last but not least is my beautiful momma. When I was younger, I naturally wanted to be just like my mom simply because she was a girl and so was I. However, as I grew older and wiser, it became so much more than that. My mom never stops amazing me with her actions and kind words. She is funny, incredibly smart, independent, strong, confident, determined, loyal, forgiving, and most importantly the most thoughtful and loving person I know.

My family is made up of a string of different, crazy, and sort of chaotic people. Sometimes we fight, sometimes we hurt each other, but I think that is the point. No matter how much you get on your family's nerves, they will always love you and be there for you. When I look at my family, I know that I belong with them.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
