People change. That’s an obvious statement.

Ending high school and going to college is very different, just like a million articles out there can tell you. Seeing your friends while on a break is difficult because they’ve all changed, and so have you, but one thing that they don’t always include is what it’s like when you go to visit your friends in their new school.

This is very different from going home for breaks because you become immersed in this new environment which they have spent the majority of their past year in. A lot of changes happen and you’re very aware of everything.

Here are just some of the thoughts that ran through my head when I visited friends at the University of Maryland, University of Miami, and Virginia Tech this year.

1. Wow, they actually have friends. They weren’t just making them up.

2. I guess they’re not as weird as they were in high school.

3. No, wait they totally are!

4. Hm, what if we still went to school together?

5. Aw, their friends are sooo cute and funny!

6. Wow, this girl is just like our friend from home.

7. Would I be friends with these people too?

8. Would we still be as good friends as we were in high school?

9. Wow, their school is pretty.

10. OMG that girl is in my sorority!

11. Should I say hi?

12. Oh, it’s not even her shirt, that’s awkward.

13. This place is HUGE.

14. Is that pitaya? What the heck, why doesn’t my school have pitaya?

15. Can’t you get a to-go box here?

16. Hey, that kid looks like someone at my college!

17. Aw, I miss their handwriting!

18. When’s that essay due again?

19. Ah, who cares! I’m not even at school right now. I’ll just finish it later.

20. Um, am I supposed to get in the picture too?

21. Nah, I’ll just get in the next one.

22. What the hell are they talking about?

23. Is this an inside joke?

24. What are all these abbreviations and code names?

25. What’s a Hokie?

26. What's a Terp?

27. What's a Cane?

28. Oh. That's what it is.

29. Why did I take this six-hour train ride again?

30. Oh yeah, it's because I’m friends with this idiot.

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.

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.
