To My Softest, Warmest, Cuddliest Friend - AKA My Bed

Thank you for sticking with me no matter what.

To My Softest, Warmest, Cuddliest Friend - AKA My Bed

To my one true love,

First, thank you for your constant companionship. You've been with me through everything – when I needed a comfy spot to curl up while reading my textbook, when I collapsed exhausted after an exciting night out, when I just wanted to sit and contemplate life – we've been through a lot together. Words cannot express my gratitude for your steadfastness.

I'm sorry for the times I leave you in a state of disarray. It's nothing personal, I promise. The reason I often don't make you is that I'm already looking forward to returning to you. You are my best friend. I can't believe how many years I avoided you like the plague because I just wanted to stay up all night. Seriously, was I out of my mind? I now look forward to you more than anything else, and I hate leaving you in the mornings.

You also double as an excellent study partner, and you are my favorite spot to sit and do homework. Of course, sometimes late at night, I find myself too tempted to set aside my assignments, lie down, and drift into oblivion. When I'm around you, I get so distracted – everything else gets put on hold, so you can wrap me in a warm cocoon and carry me to the world of my imagination.

It's no secret to you that I love to sleep, as my weekend snooze marathons will testify. However, I appreciate you for so much more. You're always there for me when I want to watch a movie, eat a late night snack, or surf the internet.

In short, please know that I don't take you for granted. It may seem like I do, but honestly, my life wouldn't be complete without you. Even as I sit here now, I find myself gazing at you longingly and wishing I could surrender to the sweet call of sleep. Soon I will be with you, I promise. But first, I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep…

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

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.
