It’s Okay To Not Be Okay

What the F U N K?!?!

It’s Okay To Not Be Okay
Molly Martinez

Lately, I've just been this weird mood. I don't really know what's going on but it's happening. My friends and I call it a "funk" because what else would we call it?

I understand that sometimes it's scary to realize that you might not be okay but trust me it's okay! You don't always have to be that perfect human person with the perfect life.

Sometimes you get stressed out and life gets the best of you. Now don't get me wrong, I have some pretty good days but lately, it's just been weird.

Let me elaborate on what I mean by "funk". It's basically you just not feeling yourself and being stressed out. Now I've been in a funk for the past couple of months and before you go on telling me to go and talk to someone about my "feelings" I have. Also, it's not that easy to tell someone what's on your mind.

Sometimes I don't even have the words for it. Just ask some of my close friends.

Being in a funk isn't bad at all!! It's perfectly okay to not be okay but I will tell you this.

Everyone has there good days and everyone has there bad days. I'm a firm believer on if you want to have a better day you just have to change your attitude and mindset. I've been doing that lately and it has been working out but it also isn't that easy. My friends especially have been constantly asking me if I'm okay and if I need anyone to talk to that they are there for me.

It's ALWAYS good to have such a great support system.

Now, if you may be in a "funk" right now then trust me I know what you're going through. Just let whatever or whoever is consuming your thoughts go away!

It's not worth your time to be stressing out over something that can change your whole mood. Now I know that's hard to do and trust me I'm still trying to do that but in the end, it'll be worth it because your mental health will be better.

*Sidenote: if you need someone to talk HMU!!!! I'm better at dealing with other people's problems than my own*

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.
