To The College Girls Who Aren’t Crazy Partiers, Don't Worry, You're Still A Fun Person

It is totally OK to not be into the whole party scene, this does not mean you aren't fun.

To The College Girls Who Aren’t Crazy Partiers, Don't Worry, You're Still A Fun Person

Dear lovely ladies that don't find jumping up and down in a sweaty frat as enjoyable,

For the longest time, I thought that because I didn't LOVE going out I was lame or just not fun but this isn't the truth. I love to dance with my friends, and I'm always down for a good time. Maybe I just physically do not like the feeling of being drunk. It took me a while to come to terms with this, but now I know. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you aren't a huge partier:

1. If you do go out, it's all about who you go with. 


Find those girls or guys that you have fun around! Don't force yourself to go out with a crowd you aren't comfortable with. It's hard to have fun, dance and be yourself around people with whom you have to act like someone else and put on the 'fun' show.

2. You do not have to drink to have a good time. 


God no. Do whatever YOU are comfortable with not what everyone else is. You can go out and not drink and still have an amazing night.

3. There's a lot more to do with friends besides partying. 


Go out but NOT to a party. See a movie, go shopping, explore. There's so much out there to see, and if you've already tried the party scene out and it's not your thing there is so much left for you. You don't have to keep yourself cooped up in a party because everyone else is.

4. There are other people who feel the same way. 


For sure. A lot of people do go through a stage where going out and partying is the best thing out there, and you may have that stage at some time too. However, there are so many people that don't see that place as a place for them at this moment either. Find organizations that interest you on campus, be friendly to people in your classes and get involved. You will find people with the same interests as you!

5. You are not boring.


To me the most important thing to remember is that you are not boring, lame, or no fun! You do not have to love college parties to be a fun person! There's so much more to life than that, and you'll find the people who feel the same way as you.

It's true that there is a big party scene in many colleges, but that is definitely not what college is all about. You will try new things, meet new people and learn things about yourself that you never knew. Once you've tried the scene out and know that it's not for you don't force yourself. Don't worry about what people think because your true friends won't judge you. College is a time to find yourself. Don't waste it doing something you don't enjoy.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

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.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
