If you really want to get to know someone, ask them for fun facts. They can be the most random information but it can tell you what people find most interesting about themselves. When I told my friends that I wrote for an online forum, they told me to write an article about myself. I figured, "why not?" So this one is for them.

1. In 2011, my family took a 30-day road trip Out West, stopping at all the major monuments and state parks. I started a scrapbook in 2012 and have yet to finish.

2. I jumped off the Stratosphere in Las Vegas and yearn to go skydiving.

3. I was supposed to be name Kylie Rose. If I was a boy, I was going to be named Dillan.

4. As a Thanksgiving tradition, my family would take a cruise each year. I have been on seven or eight.

5. Growing up, I had a cockatoo, hamsters, a guinea pig, fish, hermit crabs, turtles, and a bearded dragon. I was never allowed to have a cat or dog.

7. I did gymnastics from 5-years-old to 13-years-old, only stopping because of injury. I picked it back up when I started college but had to stop because I got injured again.

14. I'm the youngest of four children with two older half-sisters and an older brother.

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.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
