8 Tips For Getting Through Thanksgiving

Together, we can get through the holidays.

8 Tips For Getting Through Thanksgiving

The first of the "holidays" is upon us, and with it comes a lot of family time and food. It can become overwhelming if you let it get to you so here's a list of helpful tips to get through this Thanksgiving.

1. Embrace family time.

There is no way around it. And although the incessant questions about your love life and what you are going to do now are almost unbearable, you can't escape your family so you might as well try to enjoy it (or drink until you do).

2. Eat.

As much as you can. I know you aren't getting these type of meals back at school so you better stock up on all the stuffing and potatoes while you can.

3. Drink.

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the biggest bar night of the year. All your high school friends are back in one place so why not celebrate the old memories by going ham (or turkey) at all the bars you used to try to sneak into with ridiculous fakes from Illinois?

4. Pies.

I know I already listed eat, but this deserves its own. Desserts, specifically pies. Apple, pecan, cherry, ALL OF THE PIES.

5. Sleep.

Embrace your home bed. Snuggle up in those sheets, away from the first snowflakes of the year, and sleep until noon (or one). Heck, wake up when it's time to eat.

6. Take the last of your *~FaLL~* instas.

The leaves are finally brown so prepare your followers for **~~SNoW~~** pics.

7. Shop.

It's Black Friday. Your bank account will thank you later for waking up at 3 a.m.

8. Get ready for Christmas!

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.
