You.

In a chaotic world of different minds,
mine is drawn to you.
In a crowded place of people all kinds,
all I can see is you.

Like an explorer who keeps his valuable finds,
an artist who reveres a precious design,
as long as the sun continues to shine,
I’m continually in awe of you.

I’m at ease when our thoughts align,
rareness is what you exude,
your presence is real and benign
and all I can see is you.

I continue to lose track of time,
since our two worlds have combined,
our love is the wildest one could ever find,
and all I want is you.

Prime Minister of Israel from 1969 to 1973, Golda Meir was, “[a] pioneer, visionary, risk-taker, indefatigable fund-raiser, eloquent advocate,” according to the Jewish Women’s Encyclopedia. When asked to place a curfew on women to help end a series of rapes, Meir replied by stating, “But it is the men who are attacking the women. If there is to be a curfew, let the men stay at home.”

Why Every Young Adult Should Sit Down with their Grandparents

Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 1.53.47 PM

My grandpa turned 80 on Saturday. It’s funny how fast time goes by– and right before our eyes. We’re in the midst of a huge generational shift and our elders, who we constantly like to joke about how they know nothing about our dear social media platforms, are holding the one thing that is most valuable: Experience.

Dried walnuts and Kale chips? No thanks. The goal should be to find healthy foods that even a stoner would find delicious. Here are some we found:
