College is out and it is time to let loose, shake all the studying and enjoy the summer vibes. You worked hard all semester and you deserve to relax and enjoy your time off school, but be wise about your actions.
When faced with peer pressure revolving around certain actions, such as drug use, think smartly- think about your future. Recreational drug use can be a fun and quick short-term way to pass time and enjoy the summer, however, there are many negative consequences that can result from such behavior.
Today, no drugs are pure. You think you are taking one thing, but it is actually laced with all sorts of other garbage, and dangerous garbage at that.
Do yourself the favor and just say no thanks if offered any party favors. If your friends really keep harassing you to use, they are not your real friends to begin with. Ditch those losers and find some people who support you and your b...

On a side note, BILL NYE HAS A NEW NETFLIX SHOW!!!!! Yes, all my 90's kids will love ts new show because let's face it, we loved Bill Nye as kids. I know that I secretly wanted to be on the show when I was younger.

Turn your Netflix on and watch a couple episodes for some awesome science, entertaining humor, celebrity appearances and the forever immortal Bill Nye.

Get Netflix loaded and put on this new movie called The Discovery. It's extremely morbid and filled with suspense and drama. I am still trying to wrap my head around the entire concept. Oh, it's a love story as well. I have not finished it so do not spoil for me please ; )
I feel enlightened after reading Adam Alter's book titled "Irresistible." If you have not heard of it or read it yet, pick it up. It's all about modern day electronics and Internet devices. I learned about "nomophobia," which is the fear of not being connected to the mobile Internet. This is real, and I have felt it before. I recently turned my phone to do not disturb one night, and it is still on do not disturb.
I realized I was being haunted by me iPhone. I was going crazy and always thought I heard my phone ringing or vibrating. I was constantly on high alert, and anytime I thought I heard my phone I had to check it. I then would go on to check various other apps downloaded on my phone. Most of these are social media apps, with my favorite being Snapchat and Instagram.
Right now though, I feel disconnected and a new sense of freedom. The Internet can no longer control me. Alter's book that I previously referenced ex...
This blog exists to help young people, especially college students, deal with the forces that effect one's mental health. Transitioning out of high school can be scary, daunting and intimidating. Kids are forced to immediately start their future. Adults expect their children to know exactly what career they want to study and pursue for the remainder of their lives straight out of high school....I want to know why?
