Thank You To My Parents For Making Me, Me

Thank you for all that you have done for me over the years.

Thank You To My Parents For Making Me, Me

Dear Mom and Dad,

I just want to thank you for the way you raised me. The way that you shaped me into the person I am today. You have taught me that life is a journey and to take things day by day. You've showed me how to love, laugh and be happy.

Growing up I never expressed my appreciation towards you. All those soccer games I made you guys sit through. All the times I had you guys drive me to a friends house or the mall. Being young you never really understand all that your parents do. Now that I'm older I realized you guys did way to much. You always knew how to put a smile on my face and I never really showed you the appreciation that you guys deserved.

You have been my day one supporters, my leaders and the first person to tell me when I'm wrong. You've always had my back when it comes to anything. You are the type of parents I want to be when I'm older. The ones that joke around with their kids and have that close relationship with. The ones that cherish their moments with their kids. We all have our own things that we bond over and are special to us. Like, Dad watching the sunset with you at the beach and Mom going shopping for shoes - these are two of my favorite things to do. It gives us time to sit, relax and take a step back from our crazy lives. It allows us to catch up for a minute.

Throughout the years, Dad you've shown me how a man should treat a woman. That I should never settle for less then what I deserve. Mom you have taught me how to take care of a family and how to juggle about five different tasks at once. You both always allowed me to do what I wanted, within reason. You allowed me to learn from mistakes that I've made. You set goals for me that I think might be impossible, but you push me to be the best version of myself.

Thank you for everything you have ever done for me.

Love you,

Always and Forever

Your Daugther

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
