To The Person Who Feels Alone This Semester, You Will Get Through This

I know getting through the semester can be tough. The course load, the change of location, and the new schedule can all take a toll on a person.

Hey! Let me just start by saying, I know exactly how you feel. I have even felt alone a few times myself this semester.

Starting school in a new place full of new people can be scary and overwhelming.

You have to learn your surroundings all over again. You also have to learn yourself all over again. You spend a scary amount of time by yourself, which in turn causes you to feel very alone.

I have three tips that will hopefully help you the way that they helped me.

1. Get involved

I know this is completely cliche and everyone tells you this multiple times before you go off for school, but it is so true. Get involved in any and everything that you can.

Go to events that strike your interests and even those that don't, you might end up liking it. These events also give you a chance to network and meet new people.

Getting involved can help you find your community, which leads me to my second tip.

2. Find your community

Find those friends who make you laugh and help make your college experience memorable. Find the people who you can go to about anything.

You will make long-lasting friendships here, and they will be more like a family. These are the people who you will cry with, laugh with, and stress you with, but they will never let you feel alone.

3. Know what is for you

If you have tried already gotten involved and found your community and it's still not feeling right, then maybe it's time for a change. You might need to be closer to home or at a different school, and that is okay!

What is working for the people around you might not be working for you, and that is okay! You have to know what is good for you and your physical and mental health.

No matter what's going on, always know that you are never alone. There is always someone who might feel the same way as you. There is also always someone for you to talk to.

My hope is that one of these tips, or all, will help you thrive at school. Remember to always take care of yourself, and do what makes you happy!

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.

In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
