20 Goals For My Twentieth Year Of Life

My year of growth.

Its been a few months since I have turned 20, but I have decided it is time to change. Up until now, I've always worried about everybody else. I have worried about what everybody else wants and what everybody else thinks. My 20th year of life is going to be my year. I am making big changes and I am making these changes for me. I have huge goals for myself, and I am not going to let anybody get in my way.

1. Be nice to everybody.

Including the people who are not nice to me.

2. Live for myself.

I am going to stop living for others and finally do the things I want to do.

3. Put my health first.

My 20th year of life is going to be for me. I am going to live my healthiest life-mentally and physically.

4. Be unapologetically me.

This is going to be the year I find me and be me. Unapologetically.

5. Go graduate school shopping.

I want to find the perfect graduate school for me, and I am going to do that.

6. Try new things.

I am going to try new food, new clothing styles, and new interests.

7. Get out of my comfort zone.

I am going to push myself to the limit and do things I never would have done before.

8. Stay away from drama.

Drama is not something anybody wants, but this year, I am avoiding it at all costs.

9. Go to the gym more.

Let's be honest, we could all use this goal. This year, I am going to take it way more seriously now that my metabolism isn't what it used to be.

10. Get more involved at school.

I am already pretty involved, but I want to be even more involved. I want to participate in every social event with every organization I'm in. I want to run for more executive positions. I want to do more community service. I just want to do more.

11. Make more friends.

I want to build stronger bonds with the friends I already have, but I also want more friends. I want to make new connections with people. I want to build lifelong friendships with people like you're supposed to do in college.

12. Be the best mentor I can be.

I want to be able to be there as much as I can for my younger friends. I want to be able to give them the best advice possible.

13. Spend less time in my room.

I am going to stop sitting in my room as much. I am going to go out more. Sitting in my room can put such a damper on my mood, and this is the year that I stop doing that.

14. Get over some fears.

I am going to face some fears and make myself get over them.

15. Find a job.

I need to find a job, and one that I actually enjoy.

16. Love myself.

This is my year to show myself some love. I will love myself in everything I do.

17. Go on a fun trip with friends.

I just want to go on a really fun trip, possibly a full on road trip, with some good friends! There's nothing better than spending quality time with friends.

18. Care more about how I look.

I am generally the leggings and t-shirt type of person. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but I want to start dressing nicer and wearing make up more often.

19. Buy the things I want.

I am going to buy the things I want this year, as long as I have the money to do so. I'm not going to go into debt for something I want, but if I see something I want, I will get it.

20. Be happy.

Above all, I just want to be the happiest me I can be for all of my 20s, and that starts today.

My 20th year is my year of growth. I am going to learn more about myself and love myself more.

beer on the beach

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.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
