4 Things To Do If You Ever Visit Dubai And Abu Dhabi

1. Go on a desert safari

A desert safari is one of the coolest things you can do in the Middle East. Depending on your interests, you can either do a calmer tour on cool old Range Rovers, where you ride camels and have traditional food, or get a little crazier. Some of the more intense tours take you out to go dune bashing, where you drift up and down the dunes in SUVs, as well as dune boarding, where you basically just sled ride down the dunes. Whichever type of tour you pick, you'll be sure to have an awesome experience

2. Go to the top of the Burj Khalifa

This is the tallest building in the world, and is definitely one of the coolest experiences that you'll every experience. As you go up in the elevator, your ears will pop. The view from the top is incredible, and to make things even better, if you can get up and get there to see the sunrise, it will make for an even cooler experience.

3. See the different spectacular buildings in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the most extravagant city that I have ever seen. There is not a single building that is the same design, and everything is so modern and clean. This is also where the Sheikh Zayed Mosque is, which is a must see. It is absolutely insane. They have all day long tours in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and I would definitely recommend a day tour of Abu Dhabi. There are so many interesting things that a local tour guide makes even better with their knowledge on everything.

4. Visit the Dubai Mall

Within the first 10 minutes of being inside, I was lost. I'm pretty sure this place is the size of a Disneyland park. It has an aquarium, ice skating rink, and every store and restaurant you can imagine. There was literally a Texas Roadhouse. I'm not much of a shopper, but outside the mall you can see the dancing fountains, as well as a really cool light show on the side of the Burj Khalifa.

Whatever stereotypes you hear about the middle east, don't believe them, especially in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I felt safer walking around here at 3:00 am than I do in any American city. Regardless of what your interests are, you'll find something to do here. It will be the coolest trip of your life.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
