Enjoy The Holidays

Do something festive for yourself

Enjoy The Holidays
Dominic Delore

It is really easy to get wrapped up in the holiday hustle and bustle. You could literally wrap yourself in wrapping paper if you wanted. All jokes aside it is very important to do things for others and recognize the loved ones you have. This could be baking, volunteering, or just spending time with a relative. The holidays represents a time where we can show how much we care for one another through any means we wish to express. The holidays are also a great time to reflect on the year and the new one ahead. It is a time to think about improvements and decisions one could make for themselves. It is also a time of breaks from work and school and relaxation. In this personal time, I feel that everyone should have a day or some amount of time where they do something that makes them happy. This could be anything. It could be festive like decorate a tree or cookies. It could be non-holiday related and just a day trip hiking with a friend. No matter what, the important thing is to do it. You deserve it. If all you want to do is sip cocoa by the fire, then so be it. For me, it's enjoying some festive activities. My annual tradition is setting up a Christmas/Winter time village in the living room. I take pride in my set up and decided to share it with all you this year. Enjoy your holidays, breaks, and time with family and friends! Happy New Year!

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.

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.
