This Mercury Retrograde Has Been No Joke

It's been like a hall pass for everything this week. Something goes bad? Blame it on the retrograde!

Astrology Zone

It feels like I've had the month from hell, and sometimes it seems like it's all in my head. These last two weeks have been dreadful. It felt like I've lost all sense of myself, and pulling myself back together is way harder than usual. Cracking under pressure, crying where it's not even really necessary.

When is... the correct time to cry, though?

I've been told to stop crying lately and it's super frustrating because it just seems like that's the only way I've been able to relieve the pressure of just existing. I've had awful pits of pain in my stomach and nausea for weeks now. The only thing I can blame it on is the Mercury Retrograde, and I've never been one to really think my mood could be altered in such a way, but it has.

It has made it really difficult to do a lot of things I'd otherwise just do, and I'm feeling like I'm stuck.

I was talking to my brother the other night and he was just telling me how he was feeling, and it sounded so similar to the way I've been feeling. It's odd because we're already so interconnected out of all of my siblings, so we already feel a lot of the same things.

When he came to me and told me how he was feeling, I smiled, not because I had someone to go through this pain with, but because of how connected we really are as humans.

I've been talking to a lot of people about this Mercury Retrograde and how it has been affecting us, and to hear how similar our symptoms are. We're more alike than most would like to admit.

Some of the tips I'd like to share for getting through this Mercury Retrograde without poppin' off too much!

  • Don't be afraid to distance yourself when you feel like you need the space. You can give someone an explanation later, but really focus on how you feel right now.
  • Make sure you're eating well, nothing too crazy, just whatever you think your body needs.
  • Sleeeeep! Get some good sleep! We all have deadlines, and work, and all that crappy stuff, but sleep is essential to your wellbeing.
  • Indulge, where you want! Treat yo' self!

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.
