Poetry on the Odyssey: A series of truthful moments

I'd like to share a series of poems that showcase a variety of emotions for all.

Poetry on the Odyssey: A series of truthful moments

Poetry is different for everyone. Poetry is vague. Poetry is a way to fit your story into the words and let it impact your life depending on your experiences. I wrote these to connect with a variety of people and let everyone interpret them differently. Let it sink in and connect with you.

Dreams to Reality

She fell asleep to the sound of piano

Holding my fingers

with a glass of wine next to the bed

And a book on her chest

Dreaming of a way to escape

To a better life

But all she wanted was a life with

morning to night laughter, lattes in the morning, a good book, someone to hold her hand and tell her that they loved her even at her worst moments, and someone to wake up to every morning and smile.

And then she woke up.

And realized that everything she ever wanted was sitting right next to her.

And all her dreams came true.

You can fly little one

I held her in my arms

Feeling every gasp of air coming into her lungs

I wanted to call her mine

But with every broken breath a story unfolds

A series of broken moments to give one self a completely shattered heart

And all I ever wanted to do

was make that last breath turn into eternity

Every broken breath was a piece I wanted to fix.

And soon, with all the love I can shadow beneath her feet

She'd be free and fly again

Into the sky with every breath stronger than before.

Suffocation break through

I can't breath

I feel trapped in my own universe


Just trying to escape

I don't feel accepted

I feel like a burden to society.

I feel like I am someone who no one wanted me to become.

But as time moves forward

And past experiences turn into dust

And my soul becomes alive

I am building up my own strength in this bubble

And finally for once in my life I feel strong enough to pop the bubble and break free

And be the person I knew I was supposed to be

And with that first gasp of fresh air

I feel free for the first time in my life

I can finally live again

And be the person I was always supposed to be.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
