Struggles Of Getting Your Spring Break Bod As Told By Leslie Knope

It is January and second semester has just started and we all know what that means: Spring Break is two months away. The joy of hiding that extra ten pounds you got for Christmas under sweaters is no longer an option and the excuse of telling yourself your leggings don’t really stretch that much can be thrown out of the window. In two months you will have to feel (somewhat) comfortable enough with your body to walk down the beach in a bikini surrounded by girls who look like they have never eaten a whole box of pizza by themselves ( because everyone can do that, right?). The fear sets in, and action must be taken. Going to the gym and dieting has to start now, but you have not stepped foot in the gym since before last Spring Break. Our favorite gal Leslie Knope helps me to perfectly describe the struggles of getting back into the gym in hopes to achieve our dream spring break bod.

Remember the McDonald's and ice cream and never working out because that time and happiness is now over.

Your friends are all going to the gym and you know you have to join them or you will hate yourself.

You walk in an realize you are not cut out for this life but there is no turning back now.

The whole group decides light cardio is definitely the right choice.

10 minutes in...

Mid run (brisk walk) , you fail at your attempt to make eye contact with no one, and that one super in shape friend sees you and waves.

It's over you did it, one step closer to not feeling like Shamu in a bikini. Just know that it repeats tomorrow.

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.

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.
