A Case Of The Mondays

A Case Of The Mondays

Unfortunately, a “case of the Mondays” is a real occurrence. Well, weekly occurrence I should say. It’s impossible to ignore the fact that it’s Monday, when it’s actually Monday and the trials of that particular day never fail to live up to its name. You would think we’d be more prepared for the dreadful "Monday" after the repetitive Monday struggles we continually face. For some reason, every Monday begins the same and definitely lives up to its reputation.

You know it’s Monday when…

Your morning starts rushed.

You slept through your alarm, can’t find anything to wear and barely make it out the door with a cup of coffee in hand.

After you frantically get into your car to realize you’re on empty

It’s now time to expect the worst, but hope for the best. I’m sometimes surprised at how far my car can make it on empty. It’s become a game I probably shouldn’t challenge myself with.

You realize your phone never charged the night before

Well, if I happen to run out of gas I hope my phone is still alive to desperately call someone for help.

Coffee gets spilled

Where’s the lucky spot this Monday? Your new white shirt, freshly cleaned car or does it some how just end up attacking your whole face?

Can't find a parking spot

Oh wait, that's every day. Thanks, KSU.

What assignment?

Ahhhhh, finally I’ve made it to class.

Classmate: “Did you bring your 80-page essay about the effect of communication and organizations through the exiting and metamorphic phases?

What essay...

The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

Or maybe you find out that you have a test as you're walking into class

The real question is: should I stay or should I go now? First you're late, then you forgot about the homework assignments and now you completely brain-farted that the biggest test of the semester was today.

Starving and you forgot your wallet at home

It might have been best to forget your wallet, because you're poor anyways. How could you forget?

After a long day, you encounter car problems

Ahhh, it's a miracle I've made it out of class in one piece. *Walks to car and realizes you have a flat tire*. Hopefully you had a chance to charge your phone at some point, because if you're anything like me, you're calling for help again. If that isn't the icing on the cake, I don't know what is.

You see lovely blue flashing lights in your rear-view mirror on your way home

Right when you thought this Monday couldn't get any worse, you happen to be the lucky winner of the county policeperson trying to make his/her monthly quota.

All of the above are relatable to a classic "case of the Mondays". It's odd that everything that could possibly go wrong throughout the week tends to occur on a beloved Monday. You would think we'd be more prepared for future Mondays, but unfortunately we never are. That being said, Keep Calm and Monday On!

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.
