10 things you know if you live in New England

From Vermont to New Hampshire, to Massachusetts to Maine, and MORE, New England is by far one of the best places to live. Each state has the things they love about where they live, but when we come together and form New England we all know the same things.

1. You can drive 2 hours and be in another state.

There are some expectations, such as northern parts of Maine. But essentially driving around New England is really easy, not to mention beautiful.

2. New England runs on dunks.

There are lots of other types of doughnut shops but at some point you kneel down to Dunkin Donuts. From their classic donuts to specialized drinks, its either you are obsessed or you go to another shop.

3. "Wicked"

No matter where you live in New England, Wicked is an adverb. No if, ands or buts about it. Plus it's wicked annoying when people judge us when we use it.

4. Winter

Winter is a struggle. You shovel, it snows, so you have to shovel again, and guess what... IT SNOWS AGAIN. And the plow just loves to push the snow from the road into your driveway early in the morning doesn't he?

5. We love our teams.

Patriots, gotta love them. To some, this team is a religion, and if you don't agree, then that's bound to start some form of an argument... I mean conversation. Sorry Western New England, we still love you.

6. Fluffernutter sandwiches are a real thing.

Once, when I was in Florida, I asked for a fluff sandwich and the lady looked at me like I had 10 heads. But hey, we love our fluff.

7. Ben and Jerry's

If you have not been on a tour in the all holy factory of Ben and Jerry's, do you even live in New England??

8. Scenery

Who doesn't love driving around New England just looking at the gorgeous trees and mountains. We are extremely spoiled. SO many people from outside New England come here just for the leaves changing.

9. Weathermen are liars.

They could say it was going to be 50 degrees and suddenly it will start snowing. They are never to be trusted. New England weather is probably just too much for them.

10. You have at least skied or snowboarded once in you life.

Mountains such as Loon or Killington are the places to ski, but you could always start on the bunny hill. Most families have week long ski trips. And for the college students, or upcoming college students. Plymouth State University is best for this, as we get a free ski day, where classes are all canceled. And we get discount on rentals, and we are SO close to the mountains.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
