5 Tips On How To Survive New Year’s Day

Like most average human beings between the ages of 18 to 28, you probably stayed out until the early hours of the next morning. Oh man, the first day of those ridiculous New Year’s Resolutions that you’ll give up on within a week. This is also the first day of an ideal “better year” for most people. Well, no matter how you see January 1st, here are some tips on how to survive the first day of 2017:

1. Hair of the Dog

Oh man, the old wives' tail that really does work... for people over 21 of course. So, for all of you youngsters, I advise orange juice and about 3 Tylenol.

2. Don’t talk to anyone... that you want to keep in your life

Listen, you're going to be irritable as all get out, so do everyone a favor. Just shut your trap before you do some irreparable damage.

3. Think, and I mean REALLY think, about your upcoming resolutions

Whether it be the most common "I'll start working out every day" or the "I'll start eating healthy.. Tomorrow", every resolution that is made at NYE almost always falls through the person's fingers. Instead of doing something way out of your normal routine, why don't you set a realistic goal for yourself? Like, I'll work out once a week and build up to more, or I'll eat one healthy meal or snack a day until I find different things I like. Don't set yourself up to fail.

4. Don’t call the person who wrote their phone number on your hand

HAHA. Wow, that's all I can really say. First of all, who writes their number on someone's hand? Is this the STONE AGE? Do not call that number. If they can't operate a smart phone, then they are too old for you. End of that.

5. Take a shower

This is the key to a fresh day. Come on, get up and listen to the birds or wind or whatever you hear outside, as you walk into the bathroom for a nice, long, hot shower. It will relax you and give you the refreshment that you need.

If you’re luckier than me, you won’t have anything to do on New Year’s Day… But, I also won’t be in the same sore shape that some of you will be in. Anyway, good luck and I hope my few tips helped you somehow, or at least made you laugh.

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.

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.
