A Letter To The Friends I Lost Respect For

Even though you put me through total hell, I still hope you have a good life.

A Letter To The Friends I Lost Respect For

This thing kind of happens a lot. People lose friends, people get out of touch. Some people just are not meant to be life-long friends, like me and you. Even though I'm not perfect, I loved you and cared for you like you were, and maybe that's where I went wrong. You broke my heart time after time, and I still cared for you.

You pushed me down, treated me like I was a bother, and your friend only when you needed something. It was all an act for you. You called me your "bff" on Instagram, but "bossy" to someone else, because you never had my back, and I only saw through you at the end of our friendship.

Sometimes I lay in bed and think about everything that went wrong, what could have been different. I think about how weird it was to have someone in my life who just didn't care about the wellbeing of others, especially their own friends. There were so many faces that you put up so that your friends couldn't see who you truly were.

I wish I would have known that this was going to happen. I wish I would have known all the hurt and disrespect you would put me through, so I could have gotten the hell out.

I get sad sometimes that you could never respect me at all to make it work. I tried it all. I'm not sorry about what happened. Honestly, things have been a lot better since we stopped being friends. I have more respect for myself, my true friends, something you never gave me.

I wish you could see how much I did for you, and to see me hurt after you made it clear that you didn't care.

I'm sad for you that you never saw how good of a friend I was to you, but maybe you needed to lose me. Maybe you'll realize how heartless you were with me and others, and you'll change your toxic behavior.

I'll remember the good times we had in the beginning, and I'll still wish a happy life for you. I still hope that you take care of yourself and your family does well. But overall, I really hope that you can learn how to be a better friend to people who truly love and care for you, because your friends have feelings too, and those are just as important as yours.

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.
