Thankful for breaks and not having class.

The First 10 Homely Comforts You Notice After Getting Home From College

Believe me, there are a LOT of things that I love about being home from college. This list barely touches the surface, but here it is nonetheless:

1. Name brand toilet paper.

Sometimes, you just can't afford name brand toilet paper that month. It's a sacrifice one is willing to make for Chick-fil-a, but it is also a luxury that one can appreciate when at home.


The amount of snacks that my mom keeps in the pantry is incredible and inspiring.

3. Parking.

It is so nice to not have to worry if my car is getting towed or not. It is also nice to not have to park three miles from my room.

4. Laundry.

I enjoy not having to pay $5.00 to wash two loads of laundry.

5. Home-cooked meals.

Microwave mac-n-cheese does not always cut it.

6. Mom.

It is nice having your mom only two feet away as opposed to a phone call away.

7. Sleeping.

How nice it is to sleep through your regular class time.

8. Shopping.

I mean, I am not going to complain if my mom wants to buy me some new clothes.

9. Did I mention sleeping in?

It's worth mentioning again.

10. Family.

Nothing feels better than the whole family being together again.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
