To those that are going to prom for the first time, amazing! To those that are going again, also amazing!

It's Prom Season, Ladies And Gents, Remember These 9 Things Before Putting On The Dress Or Tux
Madeline Dziak

So with it now being the month of May, it is notable that prom season is now approaching for many high schools. I've been out of high school for almost a year now, but I still remember going to both my junior and senior prom.

To those that are going to prom for the first time, amazing! To those that are going again, also amazing! From the two times I went to prom, here are a couple of things that I took from them.

1. Don't feel pressured to find a date.

Friends are just as fun as a date. If you already have a date and you get invited to join a friend group, join them. It'll probably make the night more eventful.

2. Don't spend too much money on a dress.

Is there a dress that is totally under your budget but it's still really pretty and you really want it? Get it! You'll save more money.

3. Make sure you know what hairstyle you want when going into a hair appointment.

Senior prom I found the hairstyle I wanted for prom minutes before my appointment. Good thinking on my part, haha.

4. Don't be afraid to say no to a date you don't want to go with.

It might make the person who asked you feel bad, but it's better than not having a fun night with someone you didn't want to go with.

5. Don't be the one sitting in the corner when everyone is on the dance floor.

It's probably the last time you'll see some of these people! Have fun!

6. Leave a situation if you are uncomfortable.

You want to try and have a drama-free night. I mean, you don't want to be in the middle of it.

7. Smile for the pictures, even if you don't want to.

Please smile. It'll make your parents happy and if you had a good night, you'll look back on the pictures and remember the fun.

8. Guys, please know what a corsage is.

It's a flower wristband that goes on the left wrist. There you go.

9. The most important tip: be careful driving.

It's been harped on and some might be sick of hearing it, but it really is important. If you're the driver and you're tired, have someone else drive or get someone who is capable of driving. Be aware of traffic. The last thing people want is to see that someone has died driving home from prom. It's already a big tragedy.

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.

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.
