What's Your Super Power?
Super Friends Wiki

Aren’t ice breaker activities the best? Has anyone ever asked you the question, “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” I know that I have been asked that for more than one ice breaker. People give a lot of different answers for a lot of different reasons. Some people say that they wish they had the power to fly so that they could see the world. Others say that they wish that they had superhuman strength to be strong and mighty. Generally, there is always that one person that says that they wish they had the power of invisibility in order to not be seen. This wish could be for a myriad of reasons. Have you ever wished to be invisible? Have you ever wished no one could see you?

I’m generally an introverted person when it comes to everyday life, mundane, going through the motions kind of stuff (well, actually I’m an ambivert most of the time but I’ll save that topic for another day, it’ll be a good talk). This generally means that I can regain energy by having alone time, or find peace in quiet moments. However, as I’ve grown older and built meaningful relationships with other individuals, I’ve found that I wish to be invisible for a very different reason that to not be seen. Actually, I wish to be invisible in order to be seen. Sounds confusing right? I thought so too at first until someone explained the concept to me.

In order to have open and honest friendships or any type of relationships with others, you have to make yourself invisible...or maybe a better word would be transparent. You have to live a “see-through” kind of life. This doesn’t mean be flakey or lack in depth of character or even emotion, but to be honest. Have BIG HONESTY with the world, with others and sometimes more importantly, with yourself. Be vulnerable. As a fellow human who is also trying to make something of myself in this big world, I know how important it is to have people that know me, and for me to know myself. How do you expect that to happen if you don’t give yourself up to be held accountable for who you really are? And if you can’t be true to yourself, where are you headed in this life?

You were intelligently created by a God who loves you, and want to see you thrive in this life. He wants to see you thrive by doing you, not necessarily by doing the you that you may be presenting yourself to others as. Be raw for the sake of the power of individuality. Don’t stop shining who you are for the sake of someone else squinting. I will even use the cliche metaphor, “Be a snowflake because every snowflake is unique to itself."

Be unique, be honest, be vulnerable, and who knows, maybe you can even be a superhero.

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.

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.
