I think we can all say that we had that one high school teacher that really made a lasting impression on us...

To the teacher that made high school bearable,

First of all, thank you. Thank you for waking up every morning and coming to the school that doesn't pay you enough. Thank you for putting your all into every class, even the days when you just aren't feeling it. Thank you for being one of the best teachers I have ever had.

Being in your class brightened up my day. It's a horrible feeling walking to a class that you are absolutely dreading. But I never dreaded going to yours. You made (almost) every single lesson interesting. You engaged with the class. You were fun. You were understanding. You believed in all of us. You put effort into teaching us. Your class was the class that I looked forward to every day, and the students that have you the years after me are so incredibly lucky.

Your classroom was my safe place. It was the place I could sit in for a few minutes just for relief. It was the place I could vent and even cry in when I was having a bad day. It was the place that I could go to in my free time just to talk to you. It was the place where I always felt cared about.

You always listened to my boring stories, my problems, my (sometimes) obnoxiousness. You taught me kindness, you taught me how to recognize the people that were wrong for me, and you taught me how to just take a breath.

I'm sure that you have no idea that you affected my life so much. But I'm sure that I am not the first person, and I am absolutely positive that I won't be the last.

I know being a teacher isn't easy. You have to deal with the other staff, annoying and rude kids, long days, and boring meetings. But thank you for everything that you deal with for our education, and I hope knowing that you are changing kid's lives makes it all worthwhile.

When I'm older, I hope to be the woman you are.

Thank you for everything.

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.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).
