The Dreaded Month Of February

Make the best of it.

The Dreaded Month Of February

Well, it's February. The month of the most dreaded or romantic time of the year -- based on your relationship status. The month that means there are only three months left until school is over. The month of midterms.

It may be early on in the year, but I'm sitting here, typing, and wondering how in the world February came so quickly. So many things are quickly approaching, and I've come to realize that I'm not prepared for any of them.

It's exam time. It seems like the semester just started -- we've barely learned anything yet, but we're expected to ace an exam on the material.

Valentine's Day. And many of us are wondering how we've ended up in the same place as last year. How we still didn't have a significant other for Valentine's Day and are constantly reminded of the fact by our adorable friends who are in relationships. But hey, no boyfriend means we get to go out with our friends more instead.

Spring Break is so close. Our spring break plans are (hopefully) figured out, but we aren't at all prepared for the spring break madness. People have been working on their "Spring Break bods" for a while now, yet I'm about to go stuff my face with a doughnut... because why not?

We're supposed to know what we're doing this summer. Summer seems so far away. So why is it that we already have to know what we're doing? Internship applications are due so early on in the year, and no restaurants or retail stores back home want to hire people just for the summer. Summer used to be the time when you get a break from reality, but now it's when you realize how crazy the real world can be.

So many things are happening so quickly. Can we just go back to first semester freshman year when I felt as if I had so few responsibilities?

Cheers to a jam-packed month.

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.

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.
