An Open Letter To The Friends I Lost Along The Way

We fell apart, but I'm thankful for the memories

An Open Letter To The Friends I Lost Along The Way
Hailey Powell

To my girls that I lost along the way,

You used to know everything going on in my life. What boys I was interested in, which family member was driving me crazy, and what color I planned on dying my hair next. You put up with constant talking about things that are no longer relevant.

We did everything together and we grew alongside each other. We dealt with each other's pre-pubescent mood swings and went along with every bad decision no matter how much we would disagree. You helped me find out who I wanted to be in this life and supported me through the obstacles I was facing at that point and for that, I will be forever grateful.

We grew up and grew apart. There is no shame in that, we are different people now at different points in our lives. But along with that I can't help but think of all the memories we've shared together throughout our childhood. We would talk about the future, what our weddings would be like, where we wanted to live, and who we wanted to be.

We are at the point where these dreams are finally becoming a reality. We are all going through college- some doing better than others naturally. Some of us are living the college life and some of us are planning weddings. Although we won't be going through these monumental moments together, I will always be supporting you from the sidelines. I watch and see as your life grows into something we always dreamed of, as I hope you do the same.

Friendships come and go but the memories last a lifetime. Thank you for being the friend I needed at that point in my life. I am proud of the person you have become and the life that you're building for yourself.

You know who you are :)

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.

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.
