Hi, my name is Tomi Fredrick and this is the story of the worst seven days of my life.

And no, I am not being dramatic. I am being dead serious. As serious as I can be at this point.

Here is a rundown of how my seven days turned out:

- Wednesday: My parents told me they were getting a divorce after twenty years of marriage. Turns out that my mother never wanted marriage, it was too institutional.

- Thursday: I got fired from my job because someone claimed that I was stealing even when I did not. Nor would I ever steal money from a job because I love working at my job.

Friday: I crashed my car after the most epic party of my life, totaling the beautiful blue mustang.

- Saturday: I found out that my boyfriend has been cheating on me with my best friend since kindergarten for almost a year. Needless to say that love sucks.

- Sunday: I got publicly shamed at my church with texts that I sent my now ex-boyfriend and some very flattering pictures as well. See where this week is going? Think I am exaggerating yet?

- Sunday: My dad left with his mistress, (my high school math teacher!) and I was left with my hysterical mother who really did not want a divorce apparently.

- Monday: I died.

No I did not decide to kill myself after this horrible week. It was a series of coincidences that made me believe that nothing else could happen that would make this week worse. It did and I certainly did not plan it. I died from a mixture of life, a broken spirit and heart, and a tornado. Who would have thought on the worst day of the week I would die on was the most boring day of the week. From a tornado. In Alabama. I really think that God had it out for me that week.

This is not a story about how I am sorry for myself. This is a story on the worst seven days of my life, this is a story where I fight. Even at the lowest of the low in my life I still did not want to die. Over the course of this story you might cry, feel angry, pity me. I do not want that.

I want people to learn from my story.

This is the story of the worst seven days of the end of my life.

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.
