11 Questions College Girls Always Ask Dad, Never Mom

There are certain things that are best to go to Dad about. Here are 11!

1. CARS.


Tires, battery, locks, you name it. If it's about cars, I ALWAYS go to dad, after all, he does know best. Just last week, actually, my car battery died and my dad helped me throughout the very traumatic process of going to the car place all by myself (not actually by myself, but still without parental supervision).

2. "What do I get for mom?"

This one should kind of be a given, but if it's a gift for Mom, I always go to Dad.

3. Fishing (or hunting if you're into that).


Some of my favorite memories have to do with fishing, but because my mom gets seasick, it's definitely a dad thing.

4. When you're really fired up about something!

Absolutely love Moms, they're wonderful. But if you're fired up and you just need to get even more fired up because that's your current ~mood~, always go to dad.

5. Grilling questions.


Ladies and gents, if you ever have a very very important question about grilling, take it to dad. Chances are, he's grilled once or twice in his life.

6. House problems.

If your light goes out or your toilet gets clogged or your house just really seems to be falling apart, always always call dad.

7. Moving into a new place!

100% you need the big muscles on move-in day! I remember my freshman year move-in day we had my dad and brother there, things went way faster than this past year when it was just me (in case you hadn't already guessed).

8. Curtain rods.

Kind of random, but I had this curtain rod that none of my friends could see to get up. One of my friends even tried and put 5 unused holes in my wall. Each of them tried with a hand held screwdriver and an electric one (also an electric drill I think???). Well, story time, so my dad comes in and in LESS THAN 5 MINUTES, he manages to have all three holders in the wall, the curtains on the rod, and the rod on the curtains. It's just something about dad's, I'm telling you.

9. Surprise visits!


I distinctly remember my freshman year calling my dad on the way home and saying "hey, I'm coming home to surprise mom. Can you keep her at home?" Much to my surprise, they were not in fact at home, so it's a good thing I called Dad because I was able to catch that in the right spot!

10. Electronics issues.

If my computer breaks or my TV isn't working, or something else in my electronics-centered life gets messed up, you can bet I'm calling my Dad.

11. "I miss you!"

Cheesy, but also you should go to dad when you're missing them. Because I promise they miss you too (or at least I would hope they do).

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.
