Dream on the Beach

My paradise is on the water

Dream on the Beach

Ever since my family moved away from sunny Florida, I have wanted to find some way back to the beach. I have so many memories of entire days spent with family members, just soaking in the rays and swimming for hours on end. It was fun, peaceful, and quiet. For as many years as we lived there, I never learned to surf. I want to learn one day, learning to surf is even at the top of my bucket list. It's of the utmost importance to me that I find a way to live on the beach again.

At this point in my life, my ideal future consists of waking up everyday, walking out onto my porch, and enjoying the view of the ocean as I finish my coffee. The thing is, no matter how I envision my life years down the road, it all comes back to living and working in a place that the sun is high in the sky and the beach is right around the corner. My fascination has even gotten to the point that while in class, I consistently have a real estate website pulled up on my laptop, just waiting for the day that a listing comes up for a waterfront home.

I have many things to still figure out about my life, but I know that my dream venue will always be the same. I want to be an author and the sea inspires me to write, I'm even writing this while listening to a beachfront soundtrack. Everyone has their own measure of personal success in life; for some maybe it's that sports car they've always wanted, or a certain amount of children. For me, that measure of success is how close I can get to living with my feet in the sand, and the smell of the ocean always around me.

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.
