Why I'm Glad I'll be Home for Spring Break

It'll be a great opportunity to nap

Why I'm Glad I'll be Home for Spring Break

As spring break looms ahead I hear the exited chatter of swim suits and pending tan lines in Cancun and Miami. Part of me wishes I’d splurged in the same way. Thrown my week into an exciting adventure of warm weather with good friends, but another part of me is reminded that staying home is the better alternative. Although I know spring break will be a filled of great adventurous memories in my future years, for this spring break, I’m happy I decided to be home.

I won’t lie, my wanderlust and hatred of the cold made going away severely enticing, but staying home has its own benefits. First, I’ll get to see my family and sleep in my own comfortable bed. I’ll get to nap on the oversized couch in my living room with my dog napping beside me and I’ll get to binge Netflix or watch a movie as I watch the rise and fall of her stomach. I’ll get to sleep in and eat homemade pancakes and waffles for breakfast. I’ll get to see my brother for the first time since winter break.

On top of that, I’ll get to see my friends. Not all of them will be home but with the ones that will, I’ll go to the movies and get lunch at Moe’s. I’ll be able to leave all my notebooks, folders and textbooks at home for a week and forget what the inside of a library looks like. It’ll be a week without constant studying, stressing out, lack of sleep and fewer hangovers than there might have been otherwise. To be honest, I need to break. And I’m sure going away would have provided that but spring break isn’t known for napping through the day and lounging around the house in sweat pants.

I’m happy I’ll be home because I can have a homemade steak, talk a walk in the spring weather (hopefully) and see my sisters get confirmed. I’ll be able to drive my car anywhere, which I miss dearly and go to yoga class in the center of town. I’ll be able to treat my hometown like I used to for ten days instead of missing it for another week. As much as I love being at college sometimes a break is necessary and the only real place to take a break is at home.

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.
