To The Teacher Who Went Above And Beyond For Me

"Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be" - Rita Pierson

To The Teacher Who Went Above And Beyond For Me
Emily Stephens

Dear Señora,

Over the past six years, you have been my inspiration, mentor, and confidant. You have truly gone above and beyond for me, in the classroom and outside it. You’re honestly one of the most wonderful people I have ever met.

When I met you my freshman year, you were simply my Key Club sponsor. But from then on, you became so much more. When my step-mom was sent to the ICU the day before I moved into college my freshman year, you offered to drive to Stillwater and help me move in. When I talked about my family problems, you listened without complaint. There is so much more that I can’t include here, but you know how much you have affected my life in the most positive way.

Because you have been such an amazing influence in my life, I am always eager to give back however I can. Between dropping off snacks for your daughter’s school party or bringing you coffee in a caffeine crisis, I will ALWAYS be there for you (even for the most simple tasks)!

The way that you invest in your students’ lives inspires me to do the same when I am a teacher. Your compassionate and authentic personality is something I hope to mirror. Being your student was a privilege most students didn’t receive, and I am grateful I was someone who did.

I feel connected to you, having gone through many of the same personal experiences that you have. It is a beautiful thing that we have become such good friends and I hope you know that you will always be a part of my life.

Love, Emily

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
