To The Person Who Doesn’t Realize How Much I Appreciate Them

You have to be pretty cool if I compare you to the best literary heroine of all time.

To The Person Who Doesn’t Realize How Much I Appreciate Them

Hey, you. Yes, you!

So, I recently wrote you a little note on the way back from a conference trip that we went to together. I kept it short with the amount of paper I had, but I told you that I had so much I could say about you. This is what this lovely piece of writing is for; I have approximately 450 more words to go at the minimum, and that’s going to be a pretty easy word count to reach.

I guess what I first want to say is thank you for just being you. Thank you for being a person who makes the world around them a little brighter. You never fail to make my day happier whenever I run into you. You always have something interesting to say, something that always gives me new perspectives on life and all its weird tosses and turns. I truly love conversing with you, and I always look forward to the talks we have.

I think I have told you this before, but also thank you for always making me feel comfortable in my own skin. Sometimes I struggle with self-confidence and self-love, but your reassurance and your positive energy always make me happy with who I am. You always comment on how I am a kind soul, but you are the true kind soul. You always show that you care about me and my feelings, and this is something that I truly value.

Also, just thank you for always motivating me to be a better person. I always see how well you conquer life and all of its stresses, craziness, and zaniness. You are student-teaching, being a pretty bomb CF, and just conquering everything in your life with every ounce of effort you have and that is amazing. Sometimes, when I am feeling stressed and overwhelmed with all of my responsibilities, I’ll see you handling your stresses extremely well, and realize that I can do the same.

I think you know very well that I am a huge literary nerd, and I love typing the people in my life as some of the greatest literary characters. If I could compare you to any of them, I would say you are very much like Scout Finch from “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Scout is never afraid to fight for what’s right, often putting others ahead of herself in the scariest of situations. She is confident, wise, and just someone anyone would love to be friends with. I think it says a lot about your character if I am comparing you to one of my favorite characters of all time, just saying.

I wish I could tell you how much I appreciate you more. You have been such a positive influence in my life this school year, and I am so happy that we were given the chance to get to know each other. You are creative, strong, wise, and overall just a wonderful person. Please never change who you are. Thanks for always motivating me to be a better person and being a great role model in my life.

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.
