To my younger brother during his senior year...

6 more months until you're a real grown up.

To my younger brother during his senior year...

First of all, I never thought I'd get emotional writing about your senior year of high school.

I still remember when you punched me in my nose and it started bleeding, our numerous tea parties and math lessons (me forcing you against your will), our nerf gun wars, me pushing you off the trampoline (sorry lol), and our car rides to school when I could finally drive. I know you're ready, and it kinda scares me. When you walk across the stage, enjoy the moment and be proud of everything you've accomplished (because it's a lot). Don't look for me because I'm going to be ugly crying. ahhhh!

I'll tell you, I miss the childhood days living at home and they are slowly fading into the distance. I know you're excited for UK and I am too, but I think this transition is going to be harder for me than you. My sister mom instinct is already kicking in, and I'm going to try not to be over bearing and let you live your life. *sigh*

I'm going to write a few words of advice as you come up on this next chapter of your life...

1. Friends will come and go. You hear this growing up, but it really happens, don't stress.

2. Life is expensive. Time is money.

3. College freedom is really different. It's upon you, a blessing and a curse. Be safe, always.

4. Read the syllabus. Talk to your Professors, they are human beings.

5. Enjoy your time at home because once you leave for college, coming home is a different type of feeling. I know you feel "grown" right now, but you will miss free laundry and food.

6. Use Rate my professor.

7. Be a good roommate. Clean up after yourself, and don't purposely be loud.

You're my little brother even if you tower over me, we have the best big/little sibling dynamic duo going on. So blessed to have been able to grow up right next to you. I will support you no matter what, but I will let you know when I think you're wrong. ;)

Get ready for random room checks because you know I'm an over protective mom. haha jk, or am I?

I'm big proud T-Dawg.


your big sis

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

girl with parents

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.
