Have Mercy

If You Were Born in The 90's

Don't get me wrong; I love finally being considered an adult and living on my own, but I would be lying if I said I don't miss the times where my biggest worry was if I was getting the Webkinz I wanted for Christmas, or if I was going to get home in time to catch the Full House reruns on TV. With the election controversies being at an all time high and regular college stress being amped up so close to finals, I decided to think back on all the things I miss about growing up. Here is a list of things you probably remember if you were born in the 90's.

1. Uncle Jesse was your first crush.

2. Lunchables were your go-to lunch of choice.

3. This was the only car you ever wanted.

4. You were disappointed every time you went to a hotel and it was nothing like The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

5. You thought you were bad because you dyed a piece of your hair blue for a week.

6. Nobody pulled off side bangs better than you.

7. You spent all your allowance on one $40 shirt from Abercrombie (and wore it three times a week).

8. You spiced up your mornings with a singing toothbrush.

9. You wore Sperry's, even if you had never even been on a boat before.

10. Heelys were your preferred method of transportation.

11. Slip N Slides were the highlight of your summer.

12. In elementary school, it was super cool for your parents to come visit you.

13. You felt the struggle of only being able to have the blue and red puffle if you didn't have a paid Club Penguin membership.

14. You wanted to apply to be a contestant on Fetch with Ruff Ruffman.

15. You think Hilary Duff should have won a Grammy.

16. The High School Musical soundtrack was the first soundtrack you ever owned (and HSM 2...and HSM 3... and you probably saw them in concert).

17. Wonder Balls were THE candy.

18. You went to Block Buster on Friday nights.

19. To this day you still wonder what it feels like to get slimed.

20. Moonshoes.

21. Your room probably looked something like this

or this

So when you are feeling stressed because of finals or become worried about the future of American, pop your wheels in your Heelys, throw on a graphic tee, and remember how grateful you are to be grown up like you always wished you would be.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

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.

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.
