Genie, You Will Be Missed

A tribute to the great.

Genie, You Will Be Missed

Rest In Peace Robin Williams. Jul. 15, 1951- Aug. 11, 2014. 

When you lose someone, it’s the hardest thing to deal with. Losing someone changes you, sometimes dramatically, and it honestly makes your heart hurt way more than you could ever imagine. When you lose someone in this world that dedicated their life to making everyone smile and laugh continuously, it’s probably the hardest to deal with.

This past Monday, Aug. 11, 2014, the world lost someone that dedicated their lives to bringing people joy through the art of comedy. Mr. Robin Williams will be more than just missed; he’ll be remembered and idolized as a great. From works like "Aladdin" and "Dead Poet’s Society" to "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "Flubber," Williams’ many roles really showed his diversity, as well as his different levels of comedy.

Many celebrities have been paying their respects on all forms of social media by posting memories that they’ve shared with the late actor. Many didn’t even know Williams, but thought he still impacted their lives in many ways. Whether or not he knew it, Robin impacted everyone in this world. The tribute towards RB that really made me cry the hardest, was definitely the tweet from the Academy with his Genie character from "Aladdin," with the words "Genie you are free," under the picture. Personally, he impacted me and really has helped me believe what I should do with my life, in terms of a career.

Nevertheless, it’s always heartbreaking to hear about the passing of someone due to depression, which ultimately makes them believe suicide is the only option. This past week, a very close friend of mine passed away under a similar circumstance and it was beyond heartbreaking. Just to know someone so close to you that has made you smile and laugh in hopes of hiding how they truly feel is hard to understand. You can't help but think, "How did I not know ?" 

With all being said, Robin Williams will be remembered always and forever. With every joke, every laugh, every cry and more so every role and every movie he's ever been apart of. The man will be idolized. 

Genie, your'e a beautiful soul that is finally free.

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.

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.
