22 Signs You're From Groton MA

1. Going downtown on a half day was the coolest thing

In middle school

2, In high school, Nashua was the place to be on half days

Usually Chipotle or the mall

3. The library is the coolest place

Honestly, it’s one of the best parts of town

4. You know everyone in your grade. And the grades around you

And where they go to college

5. If you don’t have a car, you don’t have a life

You either have one or have friends that drive you around

6. Everything takes at least 15 to drive to

Lowell, Nashua, Fitchburg, Worcester is 45 minutes

7. Nothing is in Groton

Nashua it is!

8. People have no idea where it is

Unless they are from another small MA town

9. Whenever people ask where it is, you say the ol’ “Just outside of Boston”, even though it isn’t

Sometimes I say it’s near Lowell

10. You can’t really classify where it is

It’s not western Mass, it’s not central Mass, it’s not North Shore, it’s in the sticks

11. The Groton School is the only place people know


12. You HATE the Groton School

Lawrence Academy is fine but that goddamn Groton School…

13. You also hate Westford

It’s the Eagleton to our Pawnee; there’s no real reason to hate it, just that it’s better

14. The castle is the coolest part of town

One of the perks of living in a "quaint New England town"

15. You know Groton's politics are messed up

The schools are great but the system is a mess

16. There's a distinct difference between Groton and Dunstable

We may go to the same school but Groton is much better, let's face it (we actually have 1 restaurant)

17. When you were younger, you either went to Prescott or Florence Roach

Only 90s kids remember Prescott

18. You’ll never forget the iconic high school teachers

Woods, Kleeman, Adams, Gounis, Reynolds

19. You know at least 10 people at UMass Lowell, 15 at UMass Amherst, and 10 at UConn

Or you go there yourself

20. You have more love for Boston than Groton

It’s just better, let’s be honest

21. You couldn’t wait for college to get out of town

But you can’t go too far because the best colleges are less than an hour away

22. But you secretly miss it sometimes

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.

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.
