More Than 24 Hours In A Day Would Be Great But We Can Still Enjoy The Time We Have

I don't think anyone disagrees.

More Than 24 Hours In A Day Would Be Great But We Can Still Enjoy The Time We Have

We've all heard the quote, "there are only twenty-four hours in a day." It's been used by my grandparents, parents, and friends, but what if there were more than twenty-four hours in a day? There are more than enough things we could think of to utilize extra time in a day for.

If we had more time, just think about all we could accomplish. We could get more work done, go to the gym more often and accomplish more of the strenuous activities we do not always care for. We could not really make any excuses about not getting things done.

While we all want more time to get things done, I'm sure we could use some of that time to relax, too. We'd have more time to binge watch Netflix favorites, go to bed early, or hang out with friends... even on a weeknight. No more all-nighters or deciding whether to party or study because you have the time to do both; we love that.

We probably would be more prepared in general and would have the time to slow down and live in the moment. We would have more time for ourselves, to go shopping, or to get to know new people.

We could also use this time to travel more, work on bettering ourselves, be kind to others, work on relationships, or volunteering. Reading books, learning more, and getting new experiences are beneficial but do not always necessarily fit into our schedules because they are not a necessity.

Then I think, there are people that do this on the daily with only twenty-four hours. So, do we really need more than twenty-four hours in a day?

Twenty-four hours gives all of us an equal playing field, it's what we do with that time that will make us or break us. All of our favorite celebs, CEOs and athletes have the same amount of time in a day that we do. This just goes to show that we can accomplish a lot in the time we're given, we just need to be encouraged and motivated.

While it would help to get a few extra hours of relaxation (for college students especially), it's not necessary in order to accomplish tasks. You make time for what is important to you. If you really wanted to get something done or if it was valuable to you, twenty-four hours is easily enough time for you to make it happen.

So, instead of wishing for more hours in a day, set your priorities straight and if it matters to you, you will get it done.

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.

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.

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.
