11 Reasons Why Thanksgiving Is the BEST Holiday

There's a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We got through another semester of college (or survived our first) and we only have a few more weeks of school until winter break. Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays. Here's why:

1. The food

Who doesn't love free delicious food? You can only eat that much and not be judged once a year, so stuff your face!

2. Thanksgiving Eve

It's no secret that Thanksgiving eve is one of the biggest nights to go out. Whether you go out to a bar, club, or stay in, go out and party! Just make sure you don't show up too hungover for Thanksgiving dinner.

3. High school friends

You may have not seen your bestie since this summer! The reunion is a long time coming and you've been counting down the days for the past month until you can see your best friends and fill them in.

4. Your pets

Some students haven't been home since the semester started, so cuddling with your furry friend is going to be one of the best parts of this next week.

5. It's the calm before the storm

When we get back from Thanksgiving break we're only a few short weeks from winter break, which means finals are quickly approaching. You better take these few days to relax because once December hits, it's finals.

6. Christmas

After Thanksgiving starts it's Christmas season! Though most of us have already added the Christmas music station on Pandora already it's officially an appropriate time to bring out the decorations and blast "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey.

7. Old family recipes

There's so much food on the table that even if turkey isn't your thing you'll be sure to find at least three other plates to make up for the one that you don't like.

8. Friendsgiving

Even though it's a made-up holiday and just an excuse for you and your friends to stuff your faces, it's a great day to celebrate with your friends to show them how thankful you are for them.

9. The leftovers

The leftovers are just as good as the actual meal. The next day, or even later that night (no judgement), you can make the best turkey sandwich with a side of your aunt's mashed potatoes. If you have the will power you might even be able to bring some back to school with you.

10. The nap after

The food coma after dinner is probably one of the best naps you'll ever take in your life. Treasure it until next Thanksgiving

11. Family

They might be crazy and annoying at times, but there's no one else you'd rather spend your Thanksgiving with.

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.
