To The Boy Who Made Me Feel

Who do you think you are?

To The Boy Who Made Me Feel
Marcel Coker

To the boy who made me feel.

I don’t know if I should thank you or punch you.

I don’t know if I want to give you any credit for actually teaching me something about life.

Actually, I know I don’t want to, but it is true, you did teach me something.


To the boy who made me feel bad.

Who do you think you are?

Making someone as amazing as me feel as bad as I did.

I hope karma bites you in the ass.


To the boy who made me feel like I wasn’t worth his time.

All that time we spent together, and yet, I still wasn’t enough.

I wouldn’t waste another second on you.


To the boy who made me feel beautiful.

Thank you, really.

I think it’s all too common for young women like myself to slip out of their self-confidence, so I thank you for that. But, I am so much more than just beautiful.


To the boy who made me feel like he wanted to date me.

Why did we waste all that time?

Why did it take you months to decide that I was worth a relationship?

Why did I feel worse and worse after that conversation?

These are questions that I once wanted answers to, but I no longer do.


To the boy who made me feel like all I am is a body.

I get it.

Physical stuff is fun.

But it isn’t all that matters when you’re dealing with another human being.

Especially a friend.


To the boy who made me feel like I was a good friend.

I saw right through this one.

I considered you a friend for a long time and yet you never actually treated me as a friend.

Friends tell each other what’s going on.

Friends make attempts to see each other.

Friends, sometimes, put each other first.

You did none of these things and yet I was still trying to see you.


To the boy who made me feel things.

Things. Ya know, things?

Like serious, emotional, wow-this-person-actually-gives-a-damn-about-me things.

I wish I didn’t.

I wish those feelings were never there and that I saved myself the disappointment.

You are disappointing.

You are not worth my time.

You hurt me.


To the boy who no longer makes me feel.

Thank you.

From the deepest crevice in my heart, thank you.

You have taught me the importance of self-love.

You have taught me that self-love is all I need.

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.
