A Thank You Letter To My Mom

To the woman who has stuck by my side through every challenge and hardship, thank you.

Ever since I was a baby, you were always there. You never left, you never doubted yourself, and you've never given up. You have always and still do try to be the best mother you can be and give 100% to me and my sisters and you never let anything tear you down. You believed in me when no one else did and you showed me what my true value is and that I am truly loved; and for that and so much more, thank you. This is for you.

Life was rough at first.

When I was first born, you were at a very stressful time in your life. You were still in school, you were working, and you were starting to make a life for yourself and become independent. In the years following, we were presented with some hard and heavy challenges; challenges, that I don't remember too well but from what I've been told in more recent years, that honestly could've tore the family apart. However, you didn't let that happen. You stepped up to the plate and was the leading force in your life and you strived to make a better life for not only us two, but my little sister too. If you didn't take that extra leap to make sure us three had a better life, I honestly don't know where we would be, so thank you.

I wouldn't be where I am today without you.

No matter what has gone on in life, no matter what hardships or roadblocks stood in the way, our relationship has always been strong. Yes, we've had our disagreements, all moms and daughters do, but we push past them and they only make us stronger. You are the strongest person I know, you have been presented with so many different and emotionally draining situations that I really don't understand how you were able to persevere and get through.

It is your strength that has brought me to where I am today. Your strength and determination have driven me to push past and defeat my demons to become a better person in every aspect. It's because of you that I am sitting here, in my dorm room typing this. It is because of you that I am strong. I truly am so blessed to have a mom like you. Thank you.

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.
