6 Reasons Why My Dad Is My Hero

6 Reasons Why My Dad Is My Hero

If you're like me, your dad was a very positive influence in your life. He worked hard and made sure you had what you needed. He did a lot for you and you feel like you never told him how much you appreciated him. Here are six things that I want my dad to know.

1. Leaving you and mom to go to school was hard.

You guys have been my rock, my biggest cheerleader and my guiding light. You taught me how to ride a bike, until I got upset with you and made mom teach me. You helped me practice softball on those late nights and helped me improve from being a bench warmer to a good player. When I was feeling down about a volleyball game, you gave me a shoulder to cry on and a listening ear. I could reach out to you about anything.

2. I do not just call you to ask you for money.

I call you because I miss you. I call you because I know you won’t be around forever and I want to hear your voice and laugh with you while I still can. I call you for advice on subjects like classes, big purchases and things that may have gone wrong with my car. I am so lucky to have a dad that is in my life and sometimes I need to remind myself of that.

3. You are still my personal banker.

You helped me set up my first bank account and apply for loans, and I am here to let you know that that will never change. I will call you and ask you what something means on my bank account and you will always have to help me fill out my financial aid. And although it seems like all of the time, I only call you when I am in dire need of some financial assistance.

4. I am still your little girl.

I still love when we can hang out on the back patio and talk about life. I miss our fishing trips and randoms drives where when mom asks where we are going, we tell her "crazy" and then walk out the door. Your phone calls make me smile from ear to ear, and when you text me random things, I laugh because I know you’re thinking about me. I cherish spending quality time with you even if it is putting together a patio on the hottest day of the year.

5. I appreciate everything you have done for me.

Thank you for being there and loving me. Thank you for listening to me on late nights when I have a nervous breakdown. I feel like I don't thank you enough but you mean a lot to me and I want you to know that I am very thankful. Most of all, thank you for giving me an example of what a real man is like and what I should look for in a guy.

6. You will always be the number one man in my life

(Sorry to my future husband). I will always love you, and even though I don't always show it, you mean the world to me. I feel like I can not stress this one enough. I may find a handsome prince, but you will always be my king.

I love you Dad,


Your Little Girl

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.
