15 Signs You're From Windham, New Hampshire

15 Signs You're From Windham, New Hampshire

Everyone always assumes that you're rich.

15 Signs You're From Windham, New Hampshire

We're the definition of a "small town." Here are a few signs you're from Windham, NH.

1. Everyone always assumes that you're rich

Whether you actually are rich or not, you live in one of the wealthiest towns in New Hampshire. So naturally, everyone pretty much assumes that you grew up in a mansion, own two yachts, a vacation house in Florida, and drive a brand new, nice car.

2. Everyone always asks about your brand new high school

It is really great to have such a new high school in our town. We often do take it for granted a lot, but we really do wish we could have a stadium, turf or track added onto our football field.

3. You probably won a state championship in high school.

For being such a new school, Windham has already won over 20 state championships in less than eight years, many different sports teams included.

4. You drive on Route 111 to go literally everywhere

The one road that pretty much connects all of Windham, you probably drive on it like 4-5 times a day.

5. You're sick and tired of construction

It seems like every month they tear up a new road and build a brand new one in pretty much the exact same place, and they've basically made an entirely new 111 by now. This construction that's been going on for years and years has led you to sitting in traffic forever.

6. You've spent countless weekend mornings at MaryAnn's Diner

Being the one and only diner in town, MaryAnn's always hits the spot. The food is absolutely to die for, and totally worth the wait on a busy Saturday morning.

7. You grew up going to the town beach

Even though it's a little beach on a small lake, Cobbett's Pond called for lots of fun on summer days when you were a kid.

8. And you probably went to Griffin Park a lot, too

Whether it was for a sports game or just to play on the playground, Griffin Park was the place to be as a kid. Not to mention Johnson's farm stand right next-door, where you would always get an ice cream and look at try to feed the goats.

9. You've been for many scenic walks along the rail trail

Probably the prettiest spot in Windham, and one of the best places to exercise.

10. Your family probably has a membership to Anytime Fitness

It's pretty much the only gym in town, and you see everybody you know when you go there.

11. Howie's is the only place you ever get gas

Because who wants to pump their own gas in the winter, or really any time at all?

12. Your idea of "going out" is to get food

Because there's literally nothing else to do in this small town, and you probably go to surrounding towns to go to actual restaurants, anyway.

13. You always stop at Dunks to get coffee

With three Dunkin Donuts in Windham, they're pretty much impossible to avoid.

14. Although you do love the Village Bean, too.

Their huge menu of drink choices is the best, and it makes an awesome place to hangout and study too.

15. You always complain about your small town, but in the end, you love the place that you grew up.

There's really no place like Windham.

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.
