Advice for the holidays: for once, let everything go

Anyone who knows me knows that I like to complain about the little things as much as the big things. Possibly it's a side-effect of being the youngest child, but I think it's more likely a generational issue. We're used to getting everything we ask for as soon as we ask for it. It could be Netflix streaming slowly or a slightly long line outside of the caf, but mostly daily inconveniences pop up all over social media and fare forced upon those unlucky enough to be within earshot. It doesn't matter where we are or who we're with, there's always something to whine about.

We should take time to think and disconnect daily

Modern technology drives us to be connected every minute of the day. Social media are a main vessel that people use to stay connected, and it seems as if we are all constantly refreshing our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook feeds to learn the latest about the world around us.

Expect the unexpected, especially on the road

Two weeks ago, my boyfriend Jamy was picking me up from campus to drive us back to our hometown in South Jersey. It has been an ongoing ritual since I have started college, and we plan our schedules accordingly so we can leave campus the same night we finish our classes.
