We're all going to experience them.

The 11 Stages Of Thanksgiving Break

It's that time of the year again! No, I'm not talking about the Christmas season. We're moving toward that, but we can't forget about Thanksgiving. Now that Thanksgiving is already coming up this week, college students around the world are packing up their belongings and heading home for a week long break. While on this break, most people are expecting to catch up on sleep, get some homework done (or maybe not) and most importantly, eat until they can't eat anymore! While all of these things are currently on our to-do lists, we each will succumb to eleven stages during the break.

1. The excitement while packing for Thanksgiving break.

So long college dorm and so long campus! I'll see you when I see you!

2. The joy when realizing you don't have to attend class.

No class for a whole week?! Are you sure Santa didn't come a little early this year?

3. Returning home to your family.

Familial love is definitely in the air. Some of us haven't seen our families since we moved onto campus back in September. It feels great seeing them again (somewhat)!

4. Hanging out with your high school best friends.

You're all home from college and you're reunited and it feels so good!

5. Waking up to watch the Thanksgiving Day parade.

I mean, it's an annual tradition. You've waited an entire year to watch it again! How could you even consider missing it?

6. Finally being able to catch up on sleep.

And the bonus is that you can sleep in your own bed. What a time to be alive!


Seriously. This is the whole point of this break, so stop your judgment and allow me to eat.

8. Answering your family's invasive questions.

"Are you dating anyone right now?" "What happened between you and *insert person you no longer associate with*?"

9. Being so full from eating, but continuing to eat anyways.

You can't do this with college food because it doesn't even come close to tasting the same. Thanksgiving is the time where we can stuff our faces with no regrets. We can worry about those extra pounds in a few days.

10. Indulging in leftovers before returning back to campus.

Why pack it up when I can just eat it now?!

11. Realizing that you must now face finals.

Well, finals suck but at least that means the semester will be over in about two weeks.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
