A Letter To My Newest Roommate

I hope you know how thankful I am to have met you.

A Letter To My Newest Roommate

To My Newest Roommate,

We definitely did not become roommates in the most normal way, but looking back on it all, its a little hard to believe that it wasn't meant to happen. We can finally put all the past struggles behind us and look forward to what is to come.

I didn't expect us to become friends as quickly as we did. If we are being honest, I didn't really expect us to be good friends at all. I thought you'd move in and we would be civil, maybe hang out once in a while, but you have quickly become one of my biggest support systems, even if you don't know it.

This year hasn't been easy with schoolwork, my nursing application, drama, and now this whole pandemic, but every time I let those things get to me, you are right there with a wacky story and Netflix already on the TV. You understand that sometimes talking doesn't help and how comforting it can be to just be with someone and ignore the troubles around you.

I've only known you a few months, but I already know that you are entertaining, easy to talk to, and never afraid to speak your mind. This quarantine was never expected either, but I'm glad that I have you with me through it. Isolating with a good friend like you has certainly delayed the stir-crazy meltdowns.

Thank you for dealing with my stressed rants and the messes I make, and thank you for always being ready to have a mind blowing, self-reflective conversation. I know I'm not always the easiest to live with, but I hope you know that through everything, I'm thankful to have you as my roommate.

Love, Your Roommate/Quarantine Buddy

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.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
