An Open Letter To Somebody That I Used To Know

We will never be friends again.

An Open Letter To Somebody That I Used To Know
Serving Joy

Dear *Insert Name Here*:

Where do I even start? Let me start by saying this: you are somebody that I used to know. You may have been out of my life for more than a short period of time, but you are out of my life for a reason. So, if we shared intimate moments or a really good friendship, it ended for a good reason.

It may have ended by a falling out, a lack of interest, or our personalities clashing in some weird and obnoxious way. You are somebody that I used to know for this one reason: I am better off without you in my life. all the anxiety I experienced, the emotions I faced during our falling outs, and worst of all not trusting you to be there for me when I needed you the most. I put so much effort into our bond, but it felt like you never did the same. Forgetting important dates, getting upset for the little things, but I didn't realize any of this until you were gone.

For some of the people who fall into the category of "somebody that I used to know" it took me a few hours to a week to figure why I am better off without people like yourself. I always felt as if I was melting away into a different person along with getting distracted from what I want to make my life and how I want to impact people in this world. I removed you and others' off my social media for a reason, I don't talk to you for a reason, but when it comes to this kind of thing you and I will never speak again.

If we encounter each other in the future I will watch what I say, I will not let my guard down, but I will not let you back into my life because I have better things to do with my life. I will forever be nice to anyone that I have let go of, but I will not let you into my personal space again.

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.

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.
