To The Girl Who Has Always Felt Like The Disposable Friend

I’ve always had friends, but I’ve never felt like I’ve belonged.

To The Girl Who Has Always Felt Like The Disposable Friend

I have been alive for nineteen years. Throughout that time I have had many friends, two or three best friends, and a whole lot of memories.

I can remember always having my best friend and then a friend group that I would hang out with.

I have always been the friend who was on the bottom of the totem pole. If people went places I was always the last to be asked. If I asked people to go somewhere we usually didn't go.

This is how I felt anyway, maybe you feel that way too. There are a few things I want you to know if you feel like a disposable friend.

First, you aren't disposable. No matter what you or your friends think, you are definitely someone worth knowing. It took me until college to find my people, but one day you will too, and you won't feel how you are feeling right now.

Second, there is always someone. For me, it was my best friend. She taught me that if people treat you like your disposable, it's time to dispose of them.

This is the best advice I've ever gotten, and since then I have begun to take a look at my friends and see who is really a good friend.

Lastly, you are worthy of great relationships, everyone is. Don't ever let anyone make you think you deserve anything less.

The way I began to make great friends was by realizing that I deserved good relationships. I deserve people who would make me feel like I wasn't disposable. Once I realized this, my self-confidence flourished and I began to live my life the way I wanted.

Don't put up with toxic relationships, surround yourself with people who will love you for you. You are not disposable, you are worthy and you deserve love.

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.
