The Sunny State

As the weather gets colder in upstate New York is it the time of year when the snowbirds head down to the sunshine state. Those people who we all wish we could be, fleeing the frozen roads and the air that hurts our faces to be where it is sunny and at least sixty degrees even when it rains. With there being forty-nine other states to pick from so many people choose to live in Florida based on six reasons.

The Weather- We all know that the weather is 100% better than the weather in upstate New York, if you can get past the hurricanes. With everyone spending months at a time in the sunny state there is no real reason why they would come back to New York once the tundra is over!

The Attractions- With Florida being such a large state there is there so much that you can do. From Disney world, to Universal studios, beaches, and food. There is enough places to keep you busy for a lifetime.

The Cost Of Living- The cost of living is a lot cheaper than any New York housing, with there being no state income tax the sunny state is a perfect and cheap place to live. Making it more desirable for the people who are dealing with a high tax and snow.

The Sports- Anyone who loves sports will love Florida, with many major league teams that are either based in Florida or practice during their off season in Florida there is so many games of all kinds to go a see.

The Job Market- With there being so many tourist that come to visit this state the economy does very well. With any job or field you wish to go into there is a higher chance than a lot of other states that you will get the job of your dreams.

The Nature- This state is not all amusement parks and beaches. There are a lot of wildlife tours that can be taken while in Florida too. Rafting with manatees, boating with dolphins, and even being feet away from crocodiles while fishing.

I think we can all agree that the snowbirds have the right idea about moving to Florida, even if it is only for a couple of months.

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.

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.
