Sometimes you just have to make do!

A couple of days ago, my home's WiFi stopped working. I didn't panic initially because normally I can fix it by unplugging and restarting the router. Unfortunately, that did not help at all. My mom called AT&T and they said the earliest a support service man could come fix it was 4 days later. We were both frustrated because "4 days was way too long."

This made me think about all the things I wasn't going to be able to do while at home this week. My phone's data was almost used up for the month so I couldn't even use my phone.

I was stuck.

Instead of freaking out, I decided that it wouldn't be so bad. I could spend my time doing other things like:

1. Read A Book

I'm a huge bookworm, so this is an easy one for me! Maybe even put up a hammock and read in it!

2. Paint Or Draw

I always forget how much fun it is to paint a canvas or doodle whatever I can think of.

3. Go For A Bike Ride

Since it is summer, the days are pretty nice weather-wise. I have a park nearby my house that I can ride my bike around and enjoy the outdoors.

4. Visit With Family

I am very close to my grandparents because they live right up the street from me. I frequently stop by to visit with them when I'm bored. They are always happy to see me.

5. Watch Live TV

Now, I know no WiFi means no Netflix... but you can still watch live TV. I've been watching "Friends" on TBS every day!

6. Bake A Dessert

Baking is an easy way to kill an hour or so. My favorite desserts to bake are brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Basic, I know.

7. Go Shopping With A Friend

Why not get out of the house and take a trip to the mall! That's what I did this week! Shopping is always a fun way to spend an afternoon.

8. Write A Short Story

I personally like to write, so this week I started on a new short story. If you have never tried this before, I recommend it! Use your creativity and write something unique!

9.Take A Bubble Bath

Everybody loves a bubble bath with bath bombs, right?

10. Walk Your Dog

My dog isn't really one who likes walks, but most dogs love them. So, this is a way to get outside and spend time with your pup!

11. Play Board Games

Playing board games with family is always super fun! Some of my favorites are LIFE, Yahtzee, and Balderdash!

12. Paint Your Nails

I love having my nails painted but never take the time to actually paint them. I figured since I had the time, I would. Now my nails look nice and freshly painted.

13. And If All Else Fails... Take A Nap

I am the QUEEN of naps. Napping is the easiest thing in the world for me to do and is a sure-fire way to kill time!

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.

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.
