To Whoever Needs To Hear This

In case no one else is around to tell you

You might not know me personally, but this is for you. For whatever reason you clicked on this article you were meant to read it. Whether it was curiosity or if you were looking for a little truth please keep reading.

I wanted to tell you that no matter what you are going through right now it will get better, and I care about you. No one can tell what the future has to hold and that makes it even harder to get through tough times. I do know that whatever is on your mind right now, whatever is giving you stress and anxiety, it is only temporary.

Recently, I had a talk with a friend about where our lives are going and how the plans we made haven't ended up the way we thought they would. Every time we make plans some new obstacle gets in the way of seeing those plans through. The truth is that those weren't our plans to make.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

In high school it was so easy to talk about our dreams and goals in life. It seems like everything you want is right in front of you. One thing people don't often talk about is the time and effort it takes to get there. The truth is that you have to work long hours and sleepless nights to achieve those dreams.

There is so much pressure to know what career you want to pursue before you even get to college. If you want to change your major, take part-time credit hours, or even take a semester off, there is a stigma that these things will set you back. I am here to tell you that the one thing that will set you back the most is not taking care of yourself.

So I hope that in this time of inconsistent plans you will learn that the control is not in your hands, and that you are not alone. Being where society says you should be is not worth the stress and anxiety.

Sincerely, someone who cares

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.
