Traveling Fantasy in a Volkswagen Van

A cross-country experience

Traveling Fantasy in a Volkswagen Van

Being stuck in the house the past year has really had its perks but also its downfalls. Being home has really allowed me to just sit here and ponder on the idea of really wanting to get out of the house and travel. Who else wouldn't think of traveling after being in the house for so long.

But due to the pandemic and having the urge to travel and be safe, does not taking a Volkswagen van just sound fun? You wouldn't have to bother with hotels, and you could just get up and go on your own time. All I think of lately is just going to every national park and cool cities like New York City, Denver, or Seattle.

Taking a Volkswagen van has always been a dream of mine to have, not gonna lie. Any Volkswagen car in general is a dream, but for travel the van sounds like a fun experience.

My Pinterest and Tiktok are just filled with adventurers and travelers experiencing the beauties of nature. That's all I want, to be by myself and gain these new experiences of various communities, nature, and foods.

Unfortunately, at the moment, although this would be a great thing to do right now traveling in my Volkswagen van, I don't have the funds like most college students. A perk of going to these various parks during the pandemic is that I wouldn't be in distance with anyone else.

Only in my dreams though will I think of the Volkswagen van adventures, until further notice.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
