15 Things A Massachusetts Girl Gets Called Out For in PA
Charli White

I never thought anything of the little quirks that people from Massachusetts have. Once I started school in Pennsylvania three years ago, I realized that some of the things I find "natural" are not so for everyone. Here is a list of the few things that I am often made fun of for.

1. Pronouncing room “rum.”

2. Calling them “jimmies” not “sprinkles.”

3. Calling Dunkin Donuts “Dunks.”

4. Calling it “take out” not “carry out.”

5. Saying “I’m going to take a run” instead of “I’m going to run.”

6. Calling it a “sub” not a “hoagie.”

7. Pronouncing “Reese’s” “REE-SEES.”

8. Calling it a “rotary” not a “roundabout.”

9. Walking fast.

10. Saying “New England fall is the best.” (Because it is.)

11. Being a lowkey aggressive driver.

12. Jay-walking.

13. Calling “Cape Cod” “the Cape.”

14. Claiming I’m from “The Boston Area” when I live forty-five minutes away.

15.Being made fun of with the chant “PAHK THE CAH AT HAHVAHD YAHD."

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
