Is It Even Christmas Time?

It's just not the same this season.

Is It Even Christmas Time?

Can you believe Christmas and the new year are right around the corner?

I don't know about ya'll, but this year just doesn't have the holiday spirit like it usually does. Maybe it's because of the lack of snow, not being able to sit on Santa's lap anymore, or because of how the entire year seemed to go for everyone (it was bad), but the holiday season just isn't the same.

With all of the new technology and what not, I feel like I've bought most of my gifts through websites like Amazon. Has it literally gotten to the point for anyone else where you can't even go to the store to buy whatever the gadget might be? Kind of sad, but it definitely fits in to my lazy-bum schedule.

With all being said, THANK YOU to the houses off of 1st Street who still, somehow, find the energy, time, and money to put a show on for the valley. At least something around here feels like Christmas! If you haven't been to see the "blue lights" or the extravaganzas off of H Road, and 1st St., I highly recommend it. It's perfect for date nights, hanging out with friends, and even singing along to Christmas Carols with the whole family.

BUT, if you are also on board with the lazy-bum schedule this holiday season, here are some pictures from the homes of the valley! Hope you enjoy! (But really, they're better in person!)

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.
