The importance of creativity.

Why It's So Important To Create

From the very earliest points in our lives, we have all created something. Whether it having been a painting you did with your fingers or a story you wrote, no matter the media or conception of the idea, you have taken your ideas and formed a physical representation of those thoughts that have been circling in your head, waiting to be unleashed. For me, that creative outlet is writing. I've always thought of myself as a creative person, for most of the time during my childhood, I would be occupied in my own head creating stories. However, as I grew older, I decided that the best way for the characters and worlds that accompanied them to be reserved was through transferring them into words. By doing this, I was able to keep track of my ideas and it allowed me to express my creativity in a new way, while also opening doors for other things, like art and other various forms of writing.

Now, creativity does not just focus on the concept of writing or art. The idea of creating something can be applied to a multitude of areas, such as knitting, woodworking, photography, etc. All these, and so many more, are ways that a person can create something using their imagination.

If we were to apply the same concept, we can also say that science and mathematics also create, in terms of producing new ideas and methods into both of their respectable fields of study. Along with this, we can say that a conversation is the product of creation between two people, the speaker and the receiver. Continuing on the communication route, we can see that the concept of communication allows groups of people to create relationships between one another, which then in turn will create better understanding of others.

So, why is all this information about creativity I just threw at you important? Well, the answer, in my sole opinion, is that creativity is a method in which one can express themselves in order to show the world that this is what they love to do and is something that they enjoy doing, such as writing. As well as this, the concept of creativity also is an endless line of creation. When someone makes something that they poured their heart and soul into and proceeds to share it with the world, there will be someone out there that sees that hard work and will be inspired to create something too. Just like this website, no- community, that allows writers from all over to come together and share their ideas while also helping their fellow writers in the process.

What I'm trying to say is, well, that creativity is something that should be expressed and be allowed to grow with that person. Without creativity, the books and movies and everything in between would possibly not exist. And a world without the power to create and express themselves is a world that is black and gray, with no emotion and imagination to be found.

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.

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.
