Why I Will Always Need My Parents

I will never be too old to need my parents.

Why I Will Always Need My Parents

Looking back on my childhood, I have warm memories of laughter and games, home cooked meals, traditions and support. I grew up surrounded by love and hugs and a never ending flow of advice and whatever I needed. I was so lucky growing up, and blessed to have parents that would do anything to keep my brothers and me happy. Even though I am past the years of needing to be tucked in to bed at night, or needing chaperones on school field trips, I will never be too old to need my parents.

I will always turn to my dad for a laugh. His humor and way of taking things in stride is inspiring. He lights up rooms and can make friends with anyone because he is always joking and trying to make situations fun.

And I will always need my mom for advice. My mom was my first best friend and I will always turn to her in times of need. Whether I need help figuring out how to make chicken, help planning my wedding, or just someone to gossip with, my mother will always be number one.

And I will always look up to my parents. These two people taught me what love was and gave me something to aspire to be like. They cared more about me and my siblings than about anyone else in the world. They kept us safe and happy and we never questioned whether or not we were loved. And even the way they love each other continues to be something I admire. Years later and they still make each other laugh and send silly text messages while they are apart from each other.

I will never be too old to need a hug from my dad or a good talk with my mom. I will never be too old to find comfort in the four walls of my home or the embrace of my parents. I will always need my parents.

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.

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.
