Adjusting to Something New

A transition of any time can be difficult for many people.

Adjusting to Something New

Today marks a little over a week of me being at college. Believe it or not, it hasn't been all that I expected it to be. I came into college extremely excited and not nervous in the slightest bit. In a way, I was wrong to do that, because I know myself way too well. I know I'm the type to panic and freak out when I'm put in new situations and new environments.

When I was going into my freshman year of high school, I was extremely nervous. I couldn't shake the bad feelings that I had on the first day of school. When I always looked back at it, I just always thought about how much I hated that "freshman feeling." It was extremely difficult for me to become motivated to make things better for myself and to make myself happier. Once I adjusted, everything became so much easier for me.

This "freshman feeling" unfortunately followed me when I began college. I spent nights in a row panicking and crying because I just knew myself too well, and I was afraid that I wouldn't fit in. Almost a week later, I am feeling better and getting pretty well adjusted to things. Though I never expected to feel like this coming in to it, I know that it's normal and that I am not the only one dealing with these feelings when starting something new. I had to keep telling myself that these feelings would go away, and that everything would go back to normalcy soon.

When I was a freshman in high school, I made that adjustment, and I firmly believe I can do the same as I begin my college journey.

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.
