20 Things I'm Looking Forward to in 2020

New Year, New Me

20 Things I'm Looking Forward to in 2020

I've never been one for New Years' Resolutions, but I do love a good bucket list. I guess this is a mix of the two. Anyway, the new year is certainly going to bring countless new things into my life. I'm just excited to face them all.

1. Traveling to new places.

If all goes as planned, I'll go to four new countries this summer.

2. Discovering new music.

The last two years have brought me to country music. Who knows what's next?

3. Making new friends.

There's always room for more people to love.

4. Getting an internship.


5. Starting classes for my major.

Sociology and Women's Studies here I come!

6. Making new memories with old friends.

Always need more stories to tell when looking back at the good ol' days.

7. Moving out of the dorms.

I love being on campus, but I'm excited to be in a house with all my friends next year.

8. Moving forward from the past.

Time heals all wounds.

9. Volunteering more.

I'm excited to get more involved on campus and in my community.

10. Applying for a grad school program.

The future is coming fast, but I'm excited to see where it starts to take me.

11. Applying for journalism school.

I'm so ready to stop having to say I'm an intended major and just being able to say I am a PR major.

12. Reading books that'll change my life.

Next on my list? Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.

13. Practicing photography.

Haven't picked up my camera since June, and it's time to change that.

14. Learning how to cook.

Not being on meal plan is making this a necessity, but maybe I'll be good at it?

15. Getting another tattoo.

Sorry, Mom. I think I'm addicted.

16. Developing a new sense of style.

I started dressing different towards the end of 2019, and I'm ready to keep going with it.

17. Starting to exercise.

I've discovered exercising is actually pretty fun and relaxing. I should probably do it more often.

18. Cleaning my room.

My room is an absolute disaster, and I'm ready to be able to see the floor again.

19. Learning more about myself.

I keep discovering new things I like and hate and want and am afraid of. I'm looking forward to getting to know myself this year.

20. Getting closer to being the person I want to be.

It's a never-ending process, but 2020 will surely bring me a thousand steps closer.

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.
