If I Could Turn Back Time

I would create a better connection with my family and get to see them more often.

If I Could Turn Back Time

Everyone has a memorable moment that they want to experience once more to get the best out of it. Personally, I have many moments that I wish I could take back. However, Life does not give us a great opportunity twice. If I could turn back time, I would make sure that I get to see my family more often and spend time with them. Since life does not go back, therefore, I will make sure I do not miss any of those moments with the rest of my family members.

First of all, if I could turn back, I would prove to my grandmothers how much I love them. I would do them any favor they ask. I would be there anytime they need someone to talk. I would make sure they are never feeling hungry or thirsty. As for my paternal grandmother, I would bathe and feed her in time. I would be there to hold and to listen to every story she has even if they do not make sense to others, but they would be clear to me. I would not let her suffer from my absence. I would keep her happy in every way that I could. As for my maternal grandmother, I would preach her about the Bible in a way that she could understand everything that God wants from her and the ones she should not be doing. I would be her mentor and her counselor. I would also ask God for the power to protect her from whatever I heard happen to her which causes her death. I would also wish to be there for my auntie with whom I barely had a connection, and the one I had to chance to know a little but did not get to spend more time. I would make sure that I got to know her better and have a good friendship with her. If I could turn back time, I would do what I did not do on top of what I have done.

Second, I would be there for my uncle and cousin who were sick and did not make it to the hospital. I would make sure that they could get first-aid on their way to the hospital. As for my uncle, if I could turn back time, I would see him so I could have an idea of how he looked. I only saw my uncle once my whole life and that time he came to get money from my dad to go to the hospital over ten years ago. I cannot even explain what he looks like, all I remember is that he was a tall man and used crutches to walk. I wish I could turn back time to know him because knowing the fact that he is dead while I was waiting to meet him hurts me every time I think about the night my dad told me he passed away on his way to the hospital a few months ago.

Last, but not least, if I could turn back time, I would create a better connection with my family and get to see them more often. If I did that, maybe it would not hurt as much as it bothers me knowing that I didn’t get to be with them for a long time in my life. From now on, I plan to spend the most time possible with my family to create a better connection with them, so when they are gone; I will have a better memory of them, or when I leave this earth they will have a better memory of me.

I also want to remind everyone who is reading this to make time for the ones who are important to them because tomorrow is not promisable.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.
