12 Things Blair Waldorf Taught Us

From 2007 to 2012, "Gossip Girl" was one of the most popular shows on TV. A lot of people (including myself) say that their favorite character from the show was Queen B, Blair Waldorf of the East Side. Blair was someone we all strived to be: confident, driven, smart, caring, fashionable and all in all, a great person to have around. Here are some lessons Blair taught the world from the show, "Gossip Girl."

1. It's OK to make mistakes.

We all make mistakes, some more than others. But that doesn't mean a mistake stays with you forever; you can only learn from them and move on.

2. Never lower your standards.

Your preferences are something that makes you, you. Don't ever lower your standards because someone expects you to or asks you to. You are you, and you're awesome.

3. Fight for what you want.

Being driven and motivated in life will help you accomplish things and reach heights you didn't know you could achieve. Don't sit around and wait for something good to happen, get up and make it happen!

4. You don't need anyone to be happy.

Having a boyfriend is awesome, don't get me wrong, but Blair -- a.k.a. "Queen B." -- proved that being independent is perfectly fine and can be exciting too. There's nothing wrong with some "me time."

5. Always be respectful even if you can't stand someone.

Respect is very important in life. It's earned through hard work, effort and maybe a successful scheme or two.

6. Being organized comes in handy.

Being organized can really benefit us in all aspects of life, and Blair's shown us how maintaining an organized life has helped her. Whether it's her Grace Kelly-inspired fashion choices or how she quickly develops schemes to keep herself at the top, Blair makes sure she's always organized.

7. You can show your emotions.

It's OK to not be OK. We're not always perfect and happy, don't be afraid to hide your feelings for others.

8. It's good to think positive.

When things turned for the worse, Blair always kept her head held up high and tried to think on the bright side when possible.

9. Be there for your friends, no matter what.

Friends fight sometimes. The thing about friendship is that true friends will always be there for each other no matter how big a fight or how bad one screwed up.

10. Having fun is important.

One thing Blair did every once in a while was to have fun and enjoy life with her friends. We all deserve to have a break and enjoy ourselves!

11. Be blunt.

Honesty is important in any relationship, even if it's hard to say or hear. Blair was never ashamed by anything she ever said to anyone because she stood by her words, and you should too.

12. Always be confident.

Being confident lets people know that you're serious and aren't afraid to be yourself. You have to have self-confidence if you really want people to take you seriously.

You know you love me.

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.

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.
