Woodford State Park Is The Perfect Place To Decompress From Stress And Have Fun

Woodford State Park, known as the highest elevated state park in Vermont at 2400 feet, is a family-friendly state park with much to offer. Known for its beautiful views, this park also has much to offer, such as swimming, boating, hiking, and many other activities to fill your day. In the morning, wake up to the smell of fresh, smokey bacon on an open fire while feeling motivated by a cup of rich, black coffee.

In the afternoon, go explore the nearby cities of Wilmington and Bennington or get a tan along the Adams Reservoir. At night, curl up around a cozy fire while roasting marshmallows that dissolve in your mouth. That doesn't sound like a bad vacation, doesn't it? However, our family thinks of this trip different. We think about it as more of a family tradition or our second home rather than a "vacation."

My whole family (consisting of myself, my brother, my father, my uncle and his kids) come up to this beautiful park every year. Rain or shine, we make the best of our time here, always ending with regret that we should've done more with our time. Whether it's annoying my cousin at his job at a vineyard with fake mustaches or hiking up the famous Mount Snow, we always leave having a memory that we keep until we meet up next summer, looking back at that memory and joking about that memory.

Every year I go on this trip, I keep two themes in mind that I embrace: family and fun. You don't need any internet connection or phone service to have fun. All you need is a couple of friends or a family around and a conversation. You can have endless fun with talking, just make sure not to lose track of time because you know that saying: time flies when you're having fun. Next time you're looking for a spot to relax and be stress-free, look no further than Woodford State Park. You won't regret staying there.

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.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
