To The Ungracefully Graceful Human

Sometimes gravity needs to be checked. Yep, still there.

To The Ungracefully Graceful Human

Does this sound like you? You're all dressed up and ready for a fun and fancy evening. You're wearing a gorgeous dress and your hair and makeup look superb. As you strut your stuff down some steps, you snag your heel on the last step and go toppling to the ground. Sound familiar? Then this is basically written for you.

But, believe it or not, being an ungracefully graceful human can have some benefits.

1. You can get away with opting out of activities that require any kind of coordination—if you want to—and everyone will understand.

2. Your graceful days are a nice surprise. Whoa, haven't fallen once today?? Feelin' pretty snazzy.

3. You're not the absolute klutz, but you definitely don't have the balance of a ballerina either—you're basically the perfect hybrid of both.

4. Your friends are shocked when you're able to do something remotely well—oh yeah, be impressed, I just roller skated without holding onto the wall. Mmhmm.

5. It's part of your charm. Sure, you might feel like the ungraceful side of you is cumbersome and unpredictable, but hey, that's part of the adventure, right? When you juggle coffee and textbooks simultaneously—allow yourself to rejoice in the victory—but if you happen to spill the coffee, chances are you'll meet some nice people who are willing to help you clean it up.

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.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
