strength <3

what is it? why do we need it? where does it come from?

strength quotation
credit to taylor contarino

strength. i think that

in some ways

i am stronger than i have ever been before.

i think to not be is something i cannot afford.

i think that i have been through a lot

maybe to some a little

but i take all the negativity

solve it inside out like a riddle.

i think my strength makes me who i am

i think it makes me real and raw

to know

i'm not a scam.

i think its refreshing

to know i'm not alone

but to be with myself solely

i can tell how much I've grown

i yearn to be fearless

i yearn to have no fear

i want to be a role model

be better than i was last year

i want to be loved

but i know that starts with me

my heart and my brain

must find a way to agree

to be loved universally

to be loved by my own self

the second is harder than the first

i cant hide my feelings on a shelf

my emotions, bare to see

maybe that's an accomplishment

i'm finally comfortable

let me rejoice in my own acknowledgement

i pray you find strength too

for that is where strength lays

knowing you are content

but wanting to brighten other's days

a light that kindles to light the fire of others. your own bucket is full- you continue on filling the buckets of others with the extra that you have, this is where strength lies- even when your bucket is less than full.

you fill others.

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.
