Winter Is Coming

A poem about winter that is slow and dreamlike.

Winter Is Coming

The moon shines from above, full and bright lighting up the path my feet walk

The past days have been warm, unusually so for the middle of winter

But my bare feet feel the cold seep through the Earth and into my body

And know that the warmth in the air is not to last

Everything smells wet and Earthy from the sudden thickness in the air

The warmth makes the air I breathe feel heavy

It makes me wish for spring and the lovely greenery it would bring with it

It makes me wish for flowers, and hammocks, and warm, soft rain

The next days turn cold and everyone wears their hats again

Wind blows through clothing with a sting of winter

And the trees even shiver in the harsh breeze's path

I wear my socks to bed because I can’t keep my warmth there with me

The rain that the wind blows in is hard and cold

A winter rain that chills to the bone

The drops cover everything bare in a slick coat of water

And teases us when it stops, just to start again

People talk of ice and snow

The little ones wish for it to come, and to cancel school

The adults wish it away and hope for safe travels and the ability to get to work

I agree with the little ones and dream of soft snowflakes

The moon catches my again

Not behind clouds or rainy nights tonight

She smiles on Earth and seems to bless the winter that has come

And I felt the promise of snow in her silver rays

The rain fell again today

Softer, but just as cold

I curl up in my bed with a cup of tea and a movie

And sit, and continue to hope for a little bit of snow

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.

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.
