To The Manager Who Gave Me My First Job, You're The Best I'll Ever Have

From the time that I started working until now, I have worked so many jobs that listing them on a resume makes me look more like a quitter than a busybody. I have acquired over a very long period of time a certain set of skills that have prepared me for everyday situations in life. (I just wanted to have a reference cause my jobs did subpar work in teaching me anything). From working with the rudest of customers in restaurants to the overly picky confused time-consuming shopper in retail, I can say that I have seen most of it all.

But there is no better job to have when you have a great relationship with your manager.

When I think about my first manager compared to the others after I was left feeling depressed and unmotivated about work. Not that I didn't enjoy the job that I was doing, but a bad manager can make you dread going to work more than working. Half of the battle of going to work is actually wanting to go. The other half of the battle is the shift that you are working and the people that you interact. I would call it a push-pull relationship. They both can push or pull you off the edge, but if they work together in harmony you can always stay balanced and level-headed. There is nothing worse for an employee's moral than when a manager is constantly breathing down your neck.

When that begins to happen... rebellion begins to happen.

With the bad manager, you start to complain about your pay rate (though you agreed to it) isn't enough to suffice for the amount of work that you are being given (though the job description told you what exactly you would be doing). You act a little more sluggish every day and to get through each hour you find a hiding spot that you can lay low at for a couple minutes here and there. We've all done it I will just be the first to admit it.

But for the great manager, you are a loyal sheepdog for. You give everything you've got every shift because you know that when you need your manager the most they will be there for you. Your tire caught a flat, but they tell you to stay home and relax. You want to go on that vacation so bad and they let you off even though it wasn't within a two-week notice period.

It really is the little things in life that go a long way.

And for the manager that always did the little things, I say thank you!

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.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
