Why Dads Are A Best Friend For Life

Friends come and go but family lasts forever. No one is there for you through all of your ups and downs and knows you even more than you know yourself, except for family. There are so many articles written for mothers and how they're a daughter's best friend, but I think it's time we show some love for all of the amazing dads out there!

Dads are always there for you to call, whether it's just to vent, about a car issue, etc.

Dads always listen to you no matter what. Even if you call them to go off on a rant about (insert name here), he may not know them, but he'll still sit there and agree with everything you are saying about them. In addition, dads will spend hours on the phone with you trying to explain what your car issues and the mystery parts that you have to fix are.

They remind you that it's okay to make mistakes.

Everyone makes mistakes every once in awhile. Though parents may get angry and punish you for doing stupid things, they are still there for you at the end of the day to remind you that everyone makes mistakes at some point in their lives and that your mistakes don't define you as a person.

Dads give you morals and quotes to live by.

Personally, my dad has always told me that "After every action comes a reaction" and "Tigers never change their stripes." He's taught me to always be hard working, caring, and kind to everyone. Dads give you their beliefs in life and let you do what you please with them. If you're smart, you'll live by these beliefs and keep them in your mind each day because as they say, dads know best.

They always support you and back you up no matter what.

Dads may not agree with everything that you do, but no matter what, we know that they will always be there to support us and to pick us up when we're down.

They remind you to never settle.

Whether this be a job,a significant other, etc. Dads remind you that you deserve the absolute best and you shouldn't settle for anything less than that.

They love and accept you through all of your craziness.

Everyone has quirks and flaws, luckily our family is forced to love us no matter what. Dads show us unconditional love and accept us no matter what, even when they have seen us at our worst. Dads are people we know that we can count on for absolutely anything, so for all of the amazing dads out there, thank you for all that you do!

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.

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.
