To My College Best Friend, From Frat Basements, To The Top Of The Penthouse, I Love You

Dear best friend,

College is scary. I remember walking into the quad for the very first time as a freshman. I was this 5’2 awkwardly shy red-headed girl who had no idea what the heck she was doing with her life. I was intimidated and overwhelmed with the thought that I wouldn’t fit in. It took some time, but then I met you.

It was recruitment week. I had just moved to a place where I had no one. I noticed that you were in all of my core classes and that you wanted to join a sorority too. I thought you were one of the cool girls. Younger me being younger me, I was intimidated and too nervous to introduce myself— but you did. “Hey, you’re going out for recruitment too?!”, you said with such enthusiasm. That’s where it started it all.

We got a bid into the same sorority, we always sat together in new member classes, we moved our desks across in school. You were watching a YouTube video by our favorite vlogger “oh my god you watch Aspyn too?!”, I distinctly remember popping my head over your shoulder before Propaganda and Public Opinion, “her travel vlogs are my favorite!”. From that moment on we were attached at the hip and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The tails of the many moments we shared will live on forever. Between sitting in my dead car stuck in campus for hours, to making speedy SOS calls to recovery when tragedy struck. For all the times we dropped to the floor from laughing at the ridiculous situations we managed to find ourselves in. Thank you for always leaving your door open, my passenger seat will always be yours with an ear ready to listen.

To all the shared Dunkin’ orders to the many Nutella crepes, to the hour car rides as we anticipated our faith. You pushed me to not be so timid, to become better, to live without expectations and enjoy every single second of it. You’re the reason why I got my internship, my job and pushed me to pursue my wildest dream. When I had to make the choice pursue it, you have been there for me every step of the way and I don’t think I can’t even begin to explain how much that means to me. No situation, big or small is any match for or friendship.

I’m really not sure how I did so much life without you, because now I can’t imagine where I’d be without you telling me I have lipstick on my teeth. I’ll never be able to listen to “Drops of Jupiter”, or Post Malone’s “I Fall Apart” without screaming it on the top of my lungs and thinking of so many stories that we will be telling our kids someday— if we can get the wolds out without busting in laughter.

They say you’ll meet your soulmates in college, that you’ll probably fall in love and all. I found something better, a best friend, a future bridesmaid, my person.

I know a lot is about to change. We made it, we are graduating from this little campus we shaped into our home. We talked about all the amazing things were going to accomplish with this degree we worked so hard for. No matter how many miles the world throws at us— it doesn’t matter because we’ll always be there for each other. I know it.

From the bottom of the frat basement to the top of the penthouse, I love you with all of my heart.

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.

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.
