October's 31 Days Hold SO Much More Than Just Trick-Or-Treating

If you aren't crazy about sports and pumpkin spice then you need to take this month of October off, but just in case you can't October has something for everybody.

October's 31 Days Hold SO Much More Than Just Trick-Or-Treating

October has finally bestowed upon us and we are now at the peak moments of the year. Pumpkin spice cravings can now be satisfied. We have a great excuse for eating copious amounts of candy and dressing up without being looked at weirdly. The month of October not only begins the stretch of Holidays, but it hosts some of the most important people's birthdays, like myself (October 1st).

October also boasts the best time of the year for sports fans. Whether you are watching MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL or NCAAF there is always a massive amount of sports options to watch. (I think this is the reason why there are more TVs in houses than there are people that live there.) It also begins the real test for college football teams around the nation.

October sets up the rivalry games, ticket prices, and playoff standings. The first official college football playoff ranking is on October 30th if you were wondering. Teams will be put through the test as the weather starts to get colder and the season begins to drag on.

The joy of basketball is also brought to us during October. The NBA preseason has already started and given us more than enough to talk about and the season doesn't start until October 17th. (How about those Lakers huh?)

How about a little World Series baseball? I'm not a big baseball fan, but I always observe one thing during the baseball season. Nobody and I mean, nobody goes to the games at any time of the year. Except for when October rolls around and the World Series is about to start. (If you don't believe me just look at the stands in October compared to any other month).

If you aren't crazy about sports and pumpkin spice then you need to take this month of October off, but just in case you can't October has something for everybody.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, so get your pink on and save the tatas. (Also #FreeTheNipple). October is also National Pizza month so indulge to your heart's desire (or when you begin to have stomach aches).

Surely, the month of October sparks the greatest time of the year for us all. During the month go out and have you some pumpkin spice, trick or treat, and sit back, relax with the family and enjoy all that October has to offer.

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.

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.
