The Loveless Generation

Are Millennials the Loveless Generation?

The Loveless Generation
Zero Hedge

A couple weeks ago I decided to focus on what self love is and the importance of it. But as a society, not only have we lost love for ourselves, but the idea of love overall has sort of been lost as well. The idea of loving another, and loving each other. In today's society, we've lost sight of the true meaning of love. Love is not black nor white. Love has no color. We look out for ourselves. Look out for what is best for us and us alone. But you know what we forgot is important? a 4 letter-word: love.

That old school idea of dating and relationships have changed. Millennials have technology to deal with now a days, that was not present 10 years ago. Social media has been a huge part of the differences back then and now. How the dating culture has changed and how the idea of love has changed, maybe even for the worst.

With 21st century technology and social media on the rise, millennials have a whole new world of ways to communicate and converse. That person-to-person affect can happen through the phone with the click of a button. It is no longer the same. If you want to talk to someone within one second you are able to reach that person. Social media, although has done a lot of good, has also done harm to relationships in general. That "old school" love, really has disappeared nowadays. And it really is a shame because it is something we should be going back to. The idea of a true face-to-face conversation. Not just through the phone, or on media outlets.

With all these new forms of communication, that personable affect has been lost. Maybe it is time to bring it back. Because this idea of love and relationships has a whole new meaning in this day and age then it did a few years back. So maybe next time you want to talk to someone, don't just send a text. Bring back the face-to-face aspect. It is a lot better then looking into a phone screen after all.

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.

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.
