Happy 2020

And we party hard

Like its a new beginning

Wanting to leave bad vibes in the past

Hoping to make the good times last

And as everyone raises a glass to their lip

She has me fucked the hell up before i can even take a sip

And as the bullshit starts to unwind i see why glasses are raised up to the sky

While im falling down my mind pummeling

Constantly wondering

Heartbroken among other things

As to why I'm the game that gets played

when i gave her a taste of just how good the victory feels.

I guess i can see why everyone drinks til they're destroyed on this supposedly magical day, cause standing here, right now,

As i try to pull myself up the steps of recovery

I see why they say at least the only way is up

New year new me sounds really fucking great

For these wounds to be perfectly fresh

instead of last night's party plate

I fall in too wishing for a "happy 2020"

Cause that happy part…

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.
