7 Mantras And Quotes To Get You Through The Next Few Weeks

Surely, we could all use a little motivation right now

7 Mantras And Quotes To Get You Through The Next Few Weeks

1. "This Too Shall Pass"


It sounds very cliché and we hear it way too often with everything going on right now, but its important to remember that its true! Both school and this pandemic will end eventually and life will go on. We just have to make it through now by remembering that "This Too Shall Pass"

2. "You are more Resilient than you think and so much Stronger than you feel"


When things get tough, it's easy to feel weak and helpless. Remind yourself that you are strong and resilient even if you don't feel like it.

3. "It always seems impossible until it's done"


The stress that comes with finals and the end of a semester often lead to moments of feeling overwhelmed. Some days even feel impossible, but we've felt like this before, we will probably feel it again, and we have made it through every time so far, we can do it again.

4. "You might say to yourself, 'I don't like this' and I know, I understand but you're doing it! You're nailing it because you're doing it!"


This is one of my all time favorite quotes that has gotten me through so many of the rough patches in my life. It reminds me that whatever is causing me stress may not be fun, I may not like it, and it may not be pretty, but I'm doing it one way or another and that is what counts. You are succeeding because you are trying.

5. "Slow progress is better than no progress"


During finals season I often find myself overwhelmed and cram studying which never goes well. Realizing that like anything worthwhile, studying takes time, and while it may feel like you aren't making progress fast enough, it's still better than not making any.

6. "Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly"


As I said with the last quote, progress is progress. It may not be perfect or even average, but trying is better than doing nothing.

7. "Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do"


There is always the possibility that you are or can be good at something whether you are amazing or average or if you enjoy it or not, you have the ability to do it. Don't let doubt and fear of failure take you away from something you could be really good at.

It's okay to struggle and fumble through life especially through stressful times like these. Feel whatever you need to feel, but try to motivate yourself to do the things you don't like or that scare you. Don't be afraid to try something new! There is a lot going on right now, but hopefully some of these quotes help you find the motivation you need to make it through. Things will get better, hang in there!

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.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
