What Am I Doing Here?

An Introduction

What Am I Doing Here?

So, this is kind of interesting.

I never really blogged before. Creative Writing, yes (my campus has an amazing writing club), but never blogging.

So, what does a Digital Media student on a Christian campus have to offer?

Hopefully a lot. I come from the rural areas of, well, lets call it farming central (not going to make it easier to find out who or where I live). When I attended the local school, I did not exactly know how big the world was, and it began to sink in after high school. It was once when I began to attend college that I began to experience and see more than if I just stayed behind in rural farming central.

For those who feel like their situation will forever define who they are and where they are going to go because college is not for them: don't believe that. We all have different gifts and abilities. However, we all have a tendency to believe that we need a college degree in order to be able to be successful. Please let my voice be the one to echo through the noise: you do not always need a college degree in order to be successful. There are positions that we all desperately need, such as electrician, plumbing, and the whatnot, that if we were to send everyone to college, then those jobs would go away. We NEED people to work in those industries. There is so much that you can do that, if our mindsets would change about everyone going to college, then we would be able to encourage you to face those goals.

For those of you in college: you have the opportunity to learn and grow in ways that you never even imagined. I please with you to not squander those opportunities. Make the most of the opportunities you have been called to or given by the Creator.

Either way, I hope that this account helps you see things differently in some way, shape, and form!

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.

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.
