5 Ways To Kick Off Your Summer

Simple activities to get you in the summer spirit.

5 Ways To Kick Off Your Summer

1. Beach Day

Now, although this one might seem cliche, it's cliche for a reason. Going to the beach with a group of friends, some fun snacks or drinks, and some good music is a great way to kick off the summer and start enjoying the warmth! Just be prepared, you may be starting your summer off with some good memories, but you'll also be starting it off with a very sandy car. Definitely pack some extra towels and blankets for people to sit on after your day out.

2. Go Out On The Water

Whether someone you know has a boat or you have the ability to rent canoes and kayaks in your area, take this opportunity to step outside of the typically seen areas. Extra bonus points if you rent paddleboards and you knock your friends off before they knock you off.

3. Movie Marathon

Now, this one may seem counterproductive as it is done inside, but here's the thing, when during the school year can you stay up for 24 hours and watch as many movies as you want without worrying about assignments or grades? Almost never. So grab your favorite series of movies or just a collection of movies you love and start watching!

4. Take A Road Trip

This one's self-explanatory. Pack a bag and hop in your car, whether you know your destination or not, just go! There's nothing better than a spontaneous road trip with some of your closest friends.

5. Travel Abroad

Now, this one's for people who can afford it, and normally has to be planned far in advance. But, if you are able, summer is a great time to just relax and visit different locations around the world. You never know what kind of adventure you may find! "Mamma Mia!" anyone?

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.

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.
