Finals Week Through Nursery Rhymes

Finals week sucks - simple as that. Studying all the things you had to show up to class to take notes for in one week is hard. But on the bright side, at least classes are done right? No more 8AMs, or three hour classes and labs. But since we all will be procrastinating and looking for literally anything else to read while studying, here are some familiar nursery rhymes we all know and love that accurately present finals week:

"Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posy, ashes, ashes, we all fall down."

Ring! - the third out of the five alarms you set to wake up for that early final.

Around the rosy - everyone losing their minds and biking all around campus rushing here and there, faces becoming flushed and rosy.

Pocket full - "...of sunshine?" NO, more like pocket full of pencils and folded-up scantrons.

Ashes, ashes - Once you're done studying, you'll want to burn all those class notes at the end, and throw all the ashes into the bonfire.

We all fall down - Pretty self-explanatory: after your last final, you just want to crash on a bed and finally go to sleep...or watch TV. Whatever involves falling down after studying your brains out.

"Jack and Jill went up the hill..."

Jack and Jill - Or whatever your names really are, but we'll just keep Jack and Jill for now.

Went up the hill - That arc or hill at the peak of a great party night.

To fetch a pail of water - Water? Try Jungle Juice for those of you that would like to erase the memory of finals from your heads, at least for a night.

Jack fell down and broke his crown - That one person during finals week that partied too hard the night before an exam, and breaks their crown of what was already shame over how they didn't study at all.

And Jill came tumbling after - And there's always another one to follow through in that failure.

Maybe a regular pail of water would have helped with that hangover.

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.
