Weekend Reviews: Now's the time to review your year


Plattsburgh, where I attend school, is also where my sister and mother both attended college. At first, I did not think I wanted to follow in their footsteps and continue the family tradition. I thought I wanted to break away from that and “be my own person.”

However, I am truly glad I took a second look at the situation and went ahead with it anyway, because even though being at Plattsburgh makes me feel a strong connection to both of them, I also know that I am free to be my own person and make my own name there.

I think now would be an appropriate time for me to hop off my soap box and simply reiterate my suggestion to you all: take advantage of the time you have at home with everyone you love around you, and let them know what you’re grateful for. 

Now, where are the leftover mashed potatoes?
