Thanksgiving Break As Told By The Office

Yup, they understand you.

Thanksgiving Break As Told By The Office

You've been waiting for Thanksgiving all semester. Finally you get to sleep in your own bed, eat real food, and have a week without stress from school. Surely you can handle all the questions and comments from your family members at Thanksgiving, right?

1. "How's your first semester been so far?"

Yes, I love school. Yes, it is sometimes like prison. It's fine.

2. "I'm sure you're getting all A's in your classes."

And I am sure that Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and Bigfoot will be joining us soon.

3. "You look like you might be gaining the freshman fifteen, be careful about that."

You'd gain weight too you only had access to french fries and coffee.

4. "Have you been able to save money since everything you need is on campus?"

No, Aunt Sally. I'm more poor than I was three months ago. Thanks for the reminder.

5. "Aren't finals coming up? Are you ready?"

I still don't even know what my finals are on so no, I am not ready.

6. "What are your classes like?"

I assure you they're not that interesting.

7. "You don't party, right?"

Nope and I've never had a sip of alcohol either. I swear.

8. "What do you think about the presidential election?"

We're not even discussing this.

9. "You seemed to have changed a lot."

It might just be that I haven't seen you in three months, but okay.

10. "Just a few more days till you go back. Aren't you excited?"

I can't even wait.

As great as this break will be, just remember that not everyone can handle the negatives. So go to your room and turn on The Office, everything will be alright.

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.

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.
