The Beauty Behind Your Flaws And The Ugly Behind Perfection

No one is perfect.

Not everyone is smart, not everyone has the perfect hair or skin, and certainly no one is better than anyone else in this world. Everyone has flaws, and that's more than okay because our flaws are our true beauty.

Flaws are more gorgeous than any supermodel or Hollywood star. Our imperfections are what make us who we are and the reason why our flaws make us beautiful is because when a person has faults, they are different.

Being different is not just beautiful, but it's also fun! It gives me a thrill to know that imperfections are going against societies expectations and my insecurities only give me strength.

Being different is beautiful because it shows who you truly are, and no one can take that away from you!

The way people see perfection is false in my eyes.

According to Google, the definition of perfect is "having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be," with synonyms such as ideal, model, flawless, utopian, and best.

I'm not sure who wrote this but they obviously don't know what perfection is when they see it. Fulfilling society's "requirements" is like starving yourself to be skinny and getting a nose job to have a more refined nose is nonsense!

My question to these people is, "Why do we need to change? Why do we have to live up your expectations because you should be living up to ours!?"

My philosophy is perfection is imperfection and imperfection is perfection, and I hope all of you will make this your new creed.

If you ever feel the need to do crazy things to be "perfect,'' DON'T!

Block out those voices in your head saying that, "You need to do this" and "You need to fix that to be beautiful." Please do yourself a favor and erase all those thoughts in your head and be proud of you who you are, because at the end of the day you'll be much happier.

In the words of Queen B, "Perfection is a disease of a nation, and it's the soul that needs a surgery."

Let your flaws shine and show the beauty that hides within.

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.

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.
