Dear Mom and Dad

Thanks for letting me over-stress and be my grumpy self, even when there is nothing to stress or be grumpy about

Dear Mom and Dad

Dear Mom and Dad,

As you know very well by now, I'm not the sappiest person on the planet. In fact, just the other day we were having a conversation about how very...well, grumpy I can be. I don't mean to seem angry or unhappy, I'm just not good at expressing my feelings in the same way that others are. I want to take a moment though, and truly express to you how thankful I am for all that you do.

A few weeks ago, you moved me into college for the second time. You guys were moving all over the place, trying to put things away and set things up. It was cramped with all of us in there and you guys kept asking me a hundred questions; I was getting stressed, I admit. I'm sorry I made you leave so quickly, but after you were gone I finally had a chance to look around my room. Mom, you made my bed and I want to say, thank you so much. There was just something so nice about knowing that, even though I still had a lot of stuff to put away, I could always rest in my bed.

Thank you for everything you guys did leading up to this moment. Dad, you fixing my car for me was stressful and I'm so thankful that you did it. You stepped up to help me when I really needed it and that means so much. I had a lot of fun staying up with you until 1 AM with you while you worked to fix it and I'm sorry I couldn't stay up longer.

There are so many little things I want to thank you for too. Thanks for letting me be late on my rent sometimes. Thanks for letting me go hide in my bedroom and watch Netflix after a long day of work, even when you wanted to talk to me. Thanks for letting me over stress and be my grumpy self, even when there was nothing to stress or be grumpy about. Thanks for being my best friends, and my number one fans, and the first people to tell me when I've said something dumb (and then torture me relentlessly about it). Thanks for never taking me too seriously, except for when I want to be taken seriously. Thank you for making me who I am today: stubborn, hard-working, dedicated, and someone who just wants to be a great daughter.

bruce springsteen album cover born in the usa

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.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

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.
