Why Do We Always Say We Want To Do Something But Never Actually Do it?

There's a reason for everything, but is it always valid?

I want to do this, I want to do that. All anybody does anymore is wish and want. So why is nobody actually doing these things? Is it money stopping everybody or is it just time constraints? I can't say I'm not guilty of these types of behaviors, but why is it? What is the real reason?

Travelling to Rome is on your bucket list. Why have you not done that yet? There are very obvious reasons. Money is a huge one. You need a lot of money for a plane ticket, a place to stay, as well as food. Not everybody is a trust fund baby who just has money to do that whenever they so please. Also, who is going to want to go alone? You would want a friend to come along of course, which would require them to have a ton of money as well. It just doesn't work out like that for most people. The common person has a job these days. You would need to take out a lot of time for a big trip. Requesting two days off from work is stressful, let alone two weeks. Which two weeks would not even be enough to explore everything.

So, not travelling to a far away place has very valid reasons. However, if there is a city you want to visit that is a relative distance away, why have you not done it yet? There's not much stopping you. There's not much stopping me either, but I can't quite put my finger on what is preventing these adventures. Asking for a few days off from work isn't a big deal. Also, not everything you do has to cost a lot. Maybe we should all just start doing these things we want to do. There's nothing truthfully stopping us.

We will never know the real reason why we aren't just doing these spontaneous things. We all could just be really lazy, or we all just want to keep earning our money and moving on with life.

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

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.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
