As May finally comes to a close, so does Mental Health Awareness Month. I feel as though in most situations, this valuable month is very importance in our society. However, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, it seems that we have forgotten to recognize, as greatly as we normally do, this month. Yet, it might be more important now, then ever before, to discuss mental health, not just for those who have diagnosed or undiagnosed mental disorders, but also for those whose mental health has been in good standing… until now. And just because typica...

Pride may have been cancelled this year but that doesn’t mean the festivities won’t go on. Despite the cancellation of Pride parades this year, due to covid-19, many pride organizers are gathering a slew of large and small LGBTQ+ groups to organize a virtual celebration unlike any other. 

Before the global pandemic pulled the world into a grounding hall this year’s Pride, celebrating the 51st anniversary of the Stonewall riots, there was to be a global tour, sweeping East to West. According to Vox, “The plan is to hold a rolling 24-hour onli...

A British doctor and nurse who had canceled their wedding plans due to the coronavirus pandemic found a way to reschedule their wedding at the hospital where they work.

Jann Tipping, an ER nurse, and Annalan Navaratnam, an acute medical doctor, had planned to get married in August, but had canceled because they feared their family members wouldn’t be able to travel at that time. But the couple were able to have family members from Northern Ireland and Sri Lanka attend because they live-streamed their hospital we...

I am an individual who thrives on routine; I, for most of my 22 years, revolved my life around my schedule, my motivation stemmed from this routine. Take high school, which I’m now five years out from, for example. During these awkward teenage years I made sure to continue the same routine every day, leaving the same time, getting the same coffee order, sitting outside the same locker until classes began, where I then lived my life from bell-to-bell. When in college, my schedule was more flexible, yet I thrived on having 9:30a.m. classes, a...

When Elaine Welteroth, a former Teen Vogue editor and Project Runway judge, and her musician fiancé Jonathan Singletary realized that the carefully planned destination wedding they had dreamed about in the Dominican Republic was not going to take place this spring, the couple decided to keep the date and improvise.

The date 5/10/20 was important to the couple, who has met when they were 12 in church in Northern California and reunited as adults by their church-going mothers. “There was so much symbolism in...

It’s heartbreaking to hear stories of weddings being canceled for the time being ‘til the pandemic settles down and things get a little better, a date completely unknown to experts and common people alike. How unfortunate to know a day you’ve looked forward to since your engagement to the one you love has to wait, the wedding you’ve dreamed of since you were young is postponed? Still, love always finds a way. 

Take for instance Unsha Bakker, a Muslim bride to be, who had to make the decision to call off her dream wedding to a man she’s compl...

However Broadway is not the only theater platform in the world that has temporarily closed its doors. While some are guaranteed to reopen, other theaters’ futures are beginning to...

As a divorced woman myself, I’ve wondered what it would be like to be stuck in lockdown with someone you can barely stand.  Well, Mary Kay Olsen, one of the actors/fashion empire twins from “Full House,” has shown us the way.

After five years of marriage to her much older husband (who is the half-brother of the former president of France), Olsen filed for an emergency divorce this week because her banker husband had informed her that he wanted her out of their Greenwich Village apartment by May 18th, which she does not want to do until a div...

As the COVID-19 Pandemic continues to ravage the world, our daily lives have been transformed to monotony, creating a feeling that each day is simple like day before as in the movie Groundhog Day. It becomes difficult in these times to find something new to distract ourselves with, even watching your favorite Netflix series for the millionth time becomes a chore. However, it is in these moments that I have found that childhood and the past brings the most joy.

I decided to see if these moments of pure bliss could bring about any sort of posi...

If you thought the COVID song parodies were hysterical (you can find that article here), artists have started to reimagine a slew of your favorite, bingeable TV series in the time during the pandemic while also retitling the names of said TV series. The reimagining includes The Office as The Home Office, The Simpsons as The Symptoms, Breaking Bad as Baking Bread, and a bunch more. 

The graphic designer, Jure Tovrljan told Bored Panda, “[Quarantine] is rewarding in a way that the creatives might have some more time to think about projects lik...

On May 15, I was supposed to walk across the stage at my college. Diploma in hand, this is the day I have been waiting for years for. All of my schooling career has built up to this moment… only for it not to happen. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has been ravaging the entirety of the world, graduations for high school, college, masters and doctorates have been cancelled or postponed. While I admit that I am lucky that my school is choosing postponed graduation (for an unknown date), that is not the case f...

Thankfully America’s celebrities seem to have learned that ostentatious instagram bragging is not the way to our hearts after two months in isolation, so this year America’s beloved stars have posted a lot of thankful-for-my-mom photos.

Surprisingly, the most heartfelt seemed to be Tallulah Willis’ tribute to her mom, Demi Moore, from whom she was estranged for three years.

"Channeling love and strength to every mother to be, tired mamas, step moms, and mamas who’ve lost something precious. I’m sending it to anyone who struggles to celebrate...
