To My Best Friend During The Holiday Season

To my best friend,

In the flurry of the holidays passing by, it has me thinking of exactly how many holidays we’ve spent together. It’s come to the point where they kind of all mesh together like a good-ass special comedy that you binge-watch on Netflix because you simply can’t get enough of it.

GIRRRLLL, we’ve finally transitioned from drinking Welch’s sparkling grape juice to drinking full-on champagne on New Years. Hell yes.

But above all, this holiday, in particular, I’m strangely happy because beneath the glowing lights this year and the countless years before that — there’s been you.

Yeah, you. Sitting there with the nice hair, the cool shades and the grin on your face. I'm pretty sure at this point Bruno Mars wrote "Treasure" thinking of you. I’m happy during this holiday season because you’ve given me something to be thankful on thanksgiving.It's basically a bundle of warm memories that I've held on to for years. It's the way that we sit there and laugh still like we did in middle school. It's the way you inspire me to create, push through seas of humans on black Friday, study for finals and get through some of the most difficult days of my life. A thank you, because with you, throughout the changes of the seasons, I never have to look around wonder if I’m loved by anyone. A thank you because I never have to wonder if I’m ever good enough. Thank you for reassurance, the inside jokes that never die, strength and the memories I hold on to because these are the best things that anyone could ever give me. My dear, I am so happy you entered the world. Because I have no idea what life would have looked like if you didn’t have a chance to enter mine.

Here's to the new year — all the adventures we'll go on together then, all the memories we will make and all the memes we will send each other in between. Words won't ever be enough to describe how much it all means to me.

To my best friend on this holiday,

Thank you for being you. Thank you for everything.

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.
