5 Things A Cinderella Story Taught Me

Aren't we all glad that we don't go to a school where the mascot is the Fighting Frogs?

5 Things A Cinderella Story Taught Me

We all have that one movie that no matter how many times you watch it you will never get tired of it. Well hopefully you all do. "A Cinderella Story" just so happens to be that movie for me. It is probably one of the most cliche movies out there, but if you dig deep enough you will find a few things that you can learn from it.

1. Don't be afraid to be yourself.

Take it from Sam Montgomery. It took a few rude people in her life to realize that she didn't care what people thought of her and that she was fine without them in her life. It may be hard at first to figure out why we don't need different people in our life but the truth will come out eventually and you will be way better off without them in it.

2. When things don't go as planned, don't drag yourself down.

Things always find a way of working out, especially when you least expect it.Make sure to never beat yourself up over things. Things will work out just the way they need to. You may think at that time that nothing ever goes your way or the situation always turns bad, if it isn't meant to be it won't be. So keep your tiara on and your head held high and you'll make it through anything.

3. Be able to take a compliment.

All girls need to know how wonderful they actually are. Media portrays women and young girls in different ways that make us look at ourselves as if we aren't enough. But, eThvery girl deserves to be told they are beautiful, so if Prince Charming tells you that you are beautiful, accept that girl, especially if that Prince Charming is Austin Ames or Chad Michael Murray.

4. You never know what could be right in front of you the entire time.

In life we always seem to over look the smallest things. Instead of looking at the big picture, take a step back and appreciate the small things in life. Appreciating the small things in life will you give you a better outlook on every step you take and every move you make in your everyday lifestyle.

5. Always follow your dreams.

Never settle for anything less than you deserve. No matter what the situation may be, make sure to always stay true to yourself and give yourself what you deserve. If whatever it is, is important, it will find its way back to you somehow.

I could continue to go on and on about how much I love this movie and how great it is for anyone to see and all of the different things you can take from it but the five things that I wrote above are probably some of things you can take with you no matter where you go in life and no matter what you do.

"Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game."

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.
