Act like a kid again and read up and then watch

Classic Childhood Movies

As children, movies are very important and one can argue they really shape who we are as people. Media consumed as a child especially sticks with us the older we get. Our favorite movies as children often hold major sentimental value for us, we can quote them at the drop of a hat, still love the characters, and always will sit down and watch it if it's on. Here are a couple of movies that are especially near and dear to my heart.

"The Iron Giant"

If you grew up with this movie, it undoubtedly made you cry. I mean, how could it not? Also, the fact that it's been untouched by sequels is another reason it's stayed so pure.


Hercules? More like Hunk-ules!! This classic Disney film takes Greek mythology and makes it really, really cool (which it is to beginning with, but this is way cooler). Complete with songs that everyone still knows, "Hercules" is still a favorite.

"Space Jam"

Enough said. Come on and slam and welcome to the jam.

"An American Tail"

Another movie that made me cry (there's a lot). A story about a little Russian immigrant mouse getting lost from his family and having adventures in New York City.

Now there's plenty of more movies I love from my childhood, but these particularly stick out in my mind. Perhaps it's the songs, or the characters, or even the messages behind them. Ultimately, we all have movies that stick out from our childhood that all hold a very special meaning to us. I encourage you to look back on those childhood and sit down sometime soon and rewatch all your favorites and remember why they mean so much to you. Happy watching!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.
