Confessions Of An Overpacker

I have a confession to make.

Confessions Of An Overpacker

My confession is that...I am an over-packer. I don't know how many people can agree with me on when I say that, I always overpack. No matter the occasion. I would like to say that I have gotten better, but I would be lying. I always overpack because who knows what I'm going to want to wear when on a trip? I'm not the type of person who can plan outfits and then just pack those outfits.

I'm scared that I'll change my mind when on the trip and say to myself, "Why did I pack this?" I always like to have more than less, which can be a good or bad thing. The good thing is that you'll have clothes people can borrow. The bad thing is that you spent way too much time packing and put way too much thought into it and having way too many clothes in a suitcase. I usually also procrastinate packing until the night before. I can spend hours packing because I just want to pick the right clothes! Since I usually try to travel with a carry on bag, I'm limited on space. My clothes take up my whole carry on. Packing shoes is not so terrible. I like to pack shoes that can go with about any outfit, and shoes that take up less space so I can fit more clothes. the only problem is, I like to make sure the shoes go with the outfits before I pack them.

This means I spend even more time on packing! Not to even talk about that, the worst about overpacking is that when you get back from a trip, the laundry! Since you overpack, you have A LOT of laundry to do. I tend to also sometimes procrastinate with this part.

Maybe one day, I'll get better at this thing.

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.

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.
