Be The Best You

Our pasts offer a uniqueness to our own personal lives.

Different people come to the table with different strengths and weaknesses. They have different walks of life. Many say that their past has shaped the person they are today. On the other hand many people try to hide their past, whether it be shame or humility.

In my opinion your past is a part of who you are and if someone can't except that, then they are not worth having in your life.

When I talk to different people, I find myself creating a little safety bubble. These walls that I put up, at least in my mind, are keeping those whom I may not know very well safe, safe from my past. I have had many experiences in my lifetime so far, some good and some bad, and have felt as though that these experiences are better off hidden in the deeper parts of my memory.

Everyone has different stories and experiences that define who they are as a person. The stories that I have to tell will most likely be different than the stories that my own brother has to share.

This is what makes us as human beings so unique. We could be raised by the same set of parents, taught in the same schools by the same teachers, and still have different outcomes to different situations.

These outcomes are the foundation to our being. Each outcome is a different story to tell, a different part of our past that is essential to our future. While some think that it is best to hide their past and start anew, I humbly disagree.

Your past is a part of who you are and who you will be. Be proud of who you are and strive to be the best you there will ever be.

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.

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.
