Québec Stole My Heart

I can't stop thinking about such an enchanting province.

Québec Stole My Heart
Emma Saska

It’s been two months since I was in Québec, and I can’t stop thinking about the province, its capital city, and Montréal.

That one-week trip was my first time outside the United States. While it peaked my anxiety, it’s also going to be one of my favorite memories, and I’m already ready to go back.

I want to go back to the Marché Atwater and buy all the fresh fruit, cheese, bread, and pastries and have the perfect picnic.

I want to spend more time in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood.

I want to take my time strolling along the oldest street in Montréal, Rue Saint-Paul.

I want to eat at all the restaurants and bakeries I had to miss. I want to see the Montmorency Falls, outside of Québec City. I want to visit the Maison de la littérature and all the bookstores in Montréal and Québec City and buy all the YA books in French. (Even though I already bought eight.) I want to see the Petit-Champlain district when it isn’t so crowded.

I want to eat at a crepe stand and have more poutine and eat breakfast at Paillard every day. (Paillard needs to spread to the U.S., s’il vous plait.)

I want to experience sidewalk dining or sitting by an open window for every meal. I want more time in Québec City in general.

But what breaks my heart is that there are too many places I want to go that I know it’s unwise to return to Québec so soon. But, oh, I want to.

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.
