Stop Rushing Yourself To Grow Up

You only have 18 years to act like a kid, don't rush it.

Stop Rushing Yourself To Grow Up

It seems that all we ever wanted when we were children was to be an adult. So much so, that we tend to rush the process now. I have never understood the rush to grow up. I never saw the fun in being an adult. Being an adult just seemed extremely stressful and that was something I did not want to be part of.

A trend I noticed in high school is at least one or two people a year graduated early. I never understood why. Why would someone want to cut their time in high school short? Then I realized, maybe that person was not having as much fun being in high school as I was. I often take my time in high school for granted. I had great friends, I was a cheerleader, I had straight A's; there was no reason why I should have hated high school. But some people were not blessed with these great things that I was. Seeing people want to move on from high school broke my heart. But I eventually understood that high school just wasn't the place for them. And that's okay.

However, you have 18 years to stay a kid. Whether you want to cut that 18 years short or drag it out, cherish it. Cherish the days when you could study the night before a test. Cherish the time you had with your high school friends because chances are, your friendship won't last into college (and that is totally okay). Cherish your time as a kid because it goes by in a flash, and you're going to want it back.

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.
