Pro Tip: Go To A Concert With The People Who Influenced Your Music Taste—You Won't Regret It
Kylie Finkbone

Last week I went to a concert with my dad and had the time of my life. As a kid, I never thought of outings with my parents as fun, unless I had a friend there or it was something I chose to do. But as I get older, I realize that my dad is one of my best friends, and we have fun wherever we go!

We attended a Jimmy Buffet concert, which may not have been my first pick in concerts to see, but I am so glad I went. You see, growing up on the beach I listened to a lot of Jimmy Buffett without even realizing it. Buffett combines country, rock, folk, and pop music with coastal as well as tropical lyrical themes for a sound sometimes called "Gulf and Western". He as travels to islands in order to get inspiration for many of his songs. Remember when I said I grew up on the beach? Well, in Buffett's album titled "Boats, Beaches, Bars & Ballards," he sings about the island I grew up on. And if that wasn't enough, he also built a Margarita there as well! During his concert, it was so special to see him flash a picture of my home on the screen, as he sang about this place I grew up. There really is no other feeling like it.

My music taste and identity have been greatly influenced by various factors such as where I grew up, the friends I made, and the environment that I grew up in. Music is a very important part of life, and listening to it with those who introduced you to it makes it even more special. For me, I love this kind of music because it reminds me of home, and it always seems to tell a story—my story.

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.

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.
