I Am Staying Single By Choice

If you are anything like me, you are in your 20's and still not in a committed relationship. When most people hear this for some reason they think that it is a negative things and start saying things they think will make you feel better.

"You'll find someone when the time is right"

"I'm sorry to hear that, but I'm sure it will happen for you soon"

"I didn't meet my s/o until I was ____ age"

Well if you are single and in your 20's, help me end the stigma around singleness being a bad thing. I am single by choice because the next person I date I want to be serious with. I am 21 years old and have time for all of the marriage and kids stuff in the future. For now I am going to enjoy college and take this time by myself to live my best life.

Now that also doesn't mean that I want to go out and party every weekend either. I want to utilize this time to do the things that might be hard before I am emotionally and financially tied down, like going on spontaneous girls trips or just spending all my money on random things.

If you are reading this and you are in a committed relationship, I am not saying these are bad things just parts of my life that I don't particularly want to alter right now. Also, if you have a single friend and are constantly setting them up with people this is your sign to stop. We are glad that Joe from accounting is cute and single, but we are not interested. Thanks.


P.S. Never hold back from inviting your single friends from hanging out with you and your s/o. When I hangout with my bff and her fiance, it just makes me that much happier for them. Never like a third wheel. It is worse when you distance yourself because you are in a relationship.

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.
