Looks Only Matter For So Long

Finding Someone You Care About

Looks Only Matter For So Long
Payton Stark

I think part of it comes with growing up. But lately, it's hit me. I know what I want.

I was listening to a little tune the other day. It was some unknown band that I came across listening to a related artist, but the song talks about what the singer wants out of love. How he wants someone he cares about, not just someone to fool around with, how it's either that or he doesn't want anyone at all. There are hundreds of nice, cute girls out there, and at times it's tempting to just settle with that. Sure they might even be good people who enjoy the fun of it, but there isn't a reason for settling. If they don't quite do it for you than there is no reason to go down that road. There are plenty of girls that just don't do it for me, whether it's their lack of interest in the things that matter to me, or the way that they conduct themselves. It is important to realize what you want. It is also important to think about how much you care about them. Thinking about losing them, or not ending up with them, and if you would even care that much if that happened. Are you protective over them both physically and also personally, not letting anyone say anything bad about them or to them? Could you still care about them if they were injured and lost a lot of their physical appeal? Could you love them even if they cut their hair funny or wore clothes that appalled you? It's questions like these that matter. I want someone that believes in me, and someone who is just there, not perfect, but just present and there.

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.

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.
