TGFAB: Thank God for a break.

9 Things That Make The Most Out Of Any Break From School

The best time of the semester, I think we can all agree, is the end of it of course. But the second best time is that mid-semester break. After hyperventilating about mid-terms and cramming in group projects, so you can take a break from all the commotion is really helpful for anyone's psyche. Here are some things that you can do to make the most out of your break...


The semester takes a good toll on your body. From the mind to the outward skin you feel exhausted when it comes to the break. If that describes you then take this break to just relax and take your mind off school for a little bit. We all know how hard you have been working. Go and live your best life for a couple of days!

Go See Family

There is no place like home. That is the truth and we are sticking to it. Go see Grandma for some cookies and maybe that lecture from your Mom about your midterm grades won't be so bad.

Binge Watch Something

This is the perfect time to catch up on some of the shows that everyone you meet has recommended to you. You may not be able to get to all of them, but at least you will have some new shows to put into your queue.

Spend Time With Yourself

Being in school all the time means being around people all the time. Whether that is professors, students, friends, peers, co-workers, etc. Put your phone on do not disturb mode and draw you up a nice bath to sulk in. Blast your favorite music in your solitude. Enjoy yourself while nobody is watching!

Take A Trip

Gas up the car and head out on the road. Go to that restaurant you saw Guy Fieri eating at that made you salivate. Go to another state and represent for your hometown. It may be a little late to book a hotel, but that is why we have Airbnb. So get on the road again!

Catch Up On Work

We all get it. You overslept for your class three times and have missed some homework. Professors love giving out extra credit assignments and work during breaks. If you are one of the unfortunate ones I would suggest that you take this time to catch up on some school work. And even possibly get ahead, so you aren't stressing out as much.

Clean Up Your Internet Presence

There are not enough hours during a regular school week to be sitting on your phone all the time. Take this break to work on your resume and clean up some of your social media. Add some customization to your phone and organize yourself. There is nothing worse than having a messy desktop and room at the same time.

Do What You've Been Doing

Some people just have it all together, don't they? Well if you are one of those people keep on doing what you are doing. The rest of us will get on your wave soon enough.


This is probably self-explanatory, but man how great is it? Every single day of this break you have no obligations (unless you made some), nothing to do (unless you do), and nowhere to be (unless you're doing number five). Hop in the bed and become friends with pillow and blanket. Catch as many Z's as you can.

All in all, having a break is something that we all need whether we will admit it or not. So go out and enjoy time away from stress.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
