"May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds." – Edward Abbey

Why LGBTQIA TV Characters Are Important

We want LGBTQIA characters to be shown acceptance and allowed success.

The problem with TV shows isn’t that there aren’t enough LGBTQIA characters (although that is a problem); it’s the characters that are LGBTQIA are not represented properly. Shows like Glee, The 100, and Faking It give us these characters that we can finally relate to and then kill them off, or ruin…

Dealing With Debt

Take some perspective on how you’re living your life and dealing with your priorities.

Ever since I became old enough to want to hide things, whether it be from my parents or other prying eyes, I hid things in my underwear drawer. In my youth, I hid mostly drug paraphernalia and pornographic magazines (yes, I grew up in an era when the Internet was still in its infancy and if you want...

Spiritual Spark of the Week: Osho

Is there more to the spiritual search?

Osho is well known for his ideas in reference to meditation, philosophy, and sexuality. However, his sense of humor and unapologetic opinions on existence were what really impressed me. During that time in my life I was searching for something to mak

The Power of Stories: a Magical Storytelling Night in Scotland

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” – Phillip Pullman

Hosted in the upstairs room at a local pub, I was amazed at how many people could fit in such a small room. There weren’t many rules, just a mutual understanding that the floor was open and free from judgment. People told personal stories about...

On Being a First-Generation College Student

As in other facets of life where one works tirelessly towards a goal, reaching it only makes it that much sweeter.

Now, more than ever, people are being educated and going to college for the first time. The help by scholarship funds, companies, school programs, and alumni associations is growing as more people attend college. I believe these are the tools we need

DIY: My Easy 4 Ingredient Skincare Routine

Bet you didn't think making your own beauty products could be this easy!

It is appalling how many chemicals are transmitted into the body through your daily skincare products—the skin is the body’s largest organs. It is SO important that everyone takes the time to read labels and research the ingredients that they are put

Your Thoughts Affect Your World

It’s wonderful if we train ourselves how to use this to our advantage.

Sounds cliché as ever, right? Yet, truthfully most of us know that our thoughts can affect our day to day. Some days can be harder than others, sure. We all have bad days. But, it’s amazing and sometimes extremely shocking how just a change in our thoughts and attitude can change just about everythi...

Is The Long-Distance Relationship Sustainable?

Can you make a long-distance relationship work?

Like millions of Americans, I have indulged in the world of online dating and all the baggage that comes along with it. I had a friend once say that the baggage is fine, you just need to figure out whether or not the bags are from Conway or Bergdorf-Goodman. Personally, I wasn’t 100% committed to th...

The Teachings of Buddhism for Increased Happiness

We must let go of pain from previous relationships in order to grow, and focus on good memories.

Happiness is an abstract concept that each person would define differently. The discrepancies in definition would stem from individual characteristics and preferences, goals and dreams, differences in upbringing, and general beliefs. However, the main themes remain constant throughout all definition...

Why You Shouldn't Settle for Less Than Your Best Friend

Find someone who respects you and loves you for all that you love to do.

While no one wants to be the only single one in a sea of couples, but you shouldn’t get into a relationship with just any “Joe Schmoe” or “Jill Schmill” just to fill the void of being alone. I used to feel like I was the only one in the universe who was still single. I was like a rare alien who ha...

Make New Friends, but Keep the Old

Take the time to remember your friendships, old and new.

As I have gotten older, I have had the chance to meet so many people. Some I instantly liked, others I knew I would never get along with. It’s funny that as you get older, making friends becomes so hard since you are no longer forced to be with anyone like you were in school. After I realized this,…

ON BEING MORE SELFISH

The most difficult and important step is to SAY NO.

Doing things for other people can feel truly incredible. Something I tend to forget is that doing things for ourselves can also feel truly incredible. Sometimes it’s easy to forget about your own wants and needs because making sure other people are content seems to be more important.

I’M A GIRL, AND YES, I ENJOY SPORTS

According to society’s rules, guys watch sports and girls hate them. No ifs, and’s, or butts about it. Girls just can’t play or enjoy sports like guys can. But apparently, society didn’t know girls like me existed when it made that rule.
