What I Want From My Life

A brain dump about my innermost thoughts? Sure, why not.

What I Want From My Life

To stand at the precipice of an unknown cliff as the cold wind curls around my fingertips, encapsulating me in its comforting darkness, the shivers equal parts exhilaration and exposure to the elements.

To feel my eyes be gently blinded by the spectacle of viewing a sunrise unfold in the last minutes of the night - see the purple turn to orange, but not just purple - lilac, lavender, a brick orange, bursts of red and violet. Sense the grossness, but also the refinement, in each trail of color spread through the clouds.

To persevere through terrible and varied darkness, to feel my spirit break and my shoulders crumble under the weight of necessary responsibility and a labor of hate, and come through it all on the other side, smiling and shining.

To continue living for as long as possible, for even though I feel like nobody I currently know even wants me around, someone out there, one day, eventually will, and that happiness will be at the cost of all the previous heartbreak and darkest hours. Or if that doesn't happen, live my life in such a way that it inspires people to wish they were me, or at least want me to be a part of theirs, even in a small way.

To listen to my favorite songs over and over again till my blood thunders with the melodies and aggression contained in them, and remember why I like them. And recommend them to my friends, but it doesn't really work because nobody really likes heavy metal because according to chemistry it's corrosive in nature. Corrosive, but essential, in my opinion.

To finish college, and get one step closer having a comfortable life when I am living it myself. To not want or think twice about purchasing something.

And lastly, try and be a good person

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.
