3 Great Reasons Why 'Inside People' Should Go Outside

I never thought I'd say this, but the great outdoors is pretty great.

3 Great Reasons Why 'Inside People' Should Go Outside
Isabella Mancini

I am not much of an outdoor person, but I was feeling stressed recently and confused for a mixture of reasons. The only solution I could come up with was to go for a walk. So, one Saturday morning, by myself, that is exactly what I did. It was awesome. I almost never go outside, especially after surviving the rough Midwestern winter.

Below you will find three reasons why connecting with yourself and nature at the same time can solve all your problems.

It will make you think more.

I don't know about you, but between walking everywhere with headphones in and always being surrounded by people in college, I forget sometimes that I have thoughts in my head when everything else is silent. If you go to a place that is quiet and surrounded by nature, you can find some clarity that was previously muddled with white noise.

Get out of the bubble.

Isabella Mancini

It's no surprise that Oxford is a rural little bubble, but sometimes I forget that more civilization isn't the only other solution. Going outside by yourself puts you at the other extreme, and that can be super refreshing, especially since most of my alone time is spent inside at my desk (which isn't bad, but could use some more variety).


Isabella Mancini

I didn't intend to go for a six-mile walk, but by the time I walked in one direction far enough to feel better, I realized I had to walk all the way back. So if anything, you'll feel fit and level-headed.

Good luck exploring the outdoors and finding yourself!

From 3 To 89, Ages Referenced In Taylor Swift Songs

Are you at one of the ages mentioned in Taylor Swift's songs?

Before Taylor Swift's transition from a country/pop sweetheart to a crazed vengeful victim, I was a huge fan of hers. I've been listening to her music for as long as I can remember.

Over the years, as an observant T Swift fan, I've noticed her penchant for mentioning ages in her songs. Maybe she does this so she can look back on these songs and remember how old she was when she had these experiences. Or maybe she does it so her fans have another level to relate to her on. For at least my past seven birthdays, I've checked to see if Taylor Swift mentioned my new age in one of her songs.

Signs in Connecticut

As someone studying in Massachusetts, it would be as easy for me to expound on CT-MA relations and stereotypes as it is to talk about the essence of either place. I’ve traveled across the United States from the southernmost point to the Canadian border, from LA to Seattle, and from the East Coast Atlantic to San Francisco to the Pacific Islands. The further away I find myself, the less and less people think about my tiny home state. While Massachusetts residents tend to have a unique familiarity (and likely a few stories and some stereotypes) with Connecticut, the most I heard from anyone in Hawaii is, “Oh, that’s north. So cold! You get the full four seasons there.”

Sports are not easy to play. While they are fun to play, they have their challenges in each sport. But it is well known that some positions are harder to play than others. Not to take away the difficulty of the other positions, but some positions takes more than brawn to be able to compete at that level. It takes intelligence, cleverness, toughness and some improvisation. Note that this list is purely opinionated and is open to debate.
