There are oodles of things you can do with noodles (insert cringe here). Besides eating some delicious variations of Italian food, spaghetti is such a multifaceted, underrated, object that is good for so much more than eating it the traditional way. A viral tweet surfaced that started a thread about all the "cool things to do with all the extra pasta you made because you're single". I didn't scroll down in the thread, but I was surely inspired.

Therefore, I have compiled just a tidbit of things pasta makes pasta-ble. (yikes again).

1. Make Spaghetti Tacos

2. Stir coffee

Save the planet! Check out my article about things we can do to save the Earth! Uncooked pasta makes a great biodegradable coffee stirrer.

3. Walrus teeth

This one was suggested by a friend, I have not had the pleasure of making noodles walrus teeth yet in my lifetime, but I highly recommend it and thought it to be deserving of a place on this list.

4. Lady and the Tramp

A classic. Cuddle up with a cutie and share some spaghetti! What could make a more perfect date night?

5. Sword fight

What better way to play with your food than a REAL food fight! Take those uncooked spaghetti noodles and fight to the death! Well not death, but maybe just hunger.

7. Macaroni art

The staple of any good Kindergarten class. If you were a Picasso with macaroni noodles, you were quite literally the shit. Why not brush up those creative skills?

8. Pick a lock

Again, suggestion from a (sketchy) friend. I have not attempted this, but a little birdie told me it only works with push-in locks.

9. Bathe in it

A nice, hot bath is the best way to wind down at the end of a long day. Got extra noodles? Throw them in for an experience like no other. I've had a dream about it and I'd love someone to make my dreams come true.

10. Put them up your nose

I don't know where I was going with this...sneeze, maybe?

11. Throw it at the ceiling

Does it stick? I think that means it's cooked.

12. Elf spaghetti

My all-time favorite movie displays a twist on a dinner favorite-dessert spaghetti complete with sprinkles, hot fudge, and whipped cream. Along with spaghetti tacos, it is on my bucket list to try this.

13. Moisturize?

I think cooked noodles would make your skin soft if you like, rubbed them together or something. If not, just eat them. I'm out of ideas.

My favorite carb deserves so much more than this attempted tribute. I hope that I revealed at least some of the ways noodles can be utilized in our everyday lives because they are so much more than just food.

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.

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.
