Winter Is Coming

7 ways the winter season will make you feel.

Winter Is Coming

Ah, here we are. Winter. Halloween is a thing of the past, and everyone's too obsessed with Christmas music to remember that Thanksgiving still exists. There's a certain atmosphere that comes along with November. The smell of firewood in chimneys down the road, the crunch of leaves that are red, yellow, and orange under your feet as you walk. Pumpkin Spice Latte's are being replaced by Chestnut Praline Latte's. Slowly, Christmas music will infiltrate the radio, and sooner or later, we'll find ourselves singing along to Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You.

But winter isn't always blissful. It isn't just stockings and Christmas trees. It's freezing cold winds that freeze your eyelashes. It's snow that goes up to your butt and ice that will probably scare at least ten years off of your life as you're driving down the road. So when that first snow hits, know what you're about to be facing.

The First Snow will likely make you feel happy and at peace. It's soothing.

There's even the hope of a snow day!

Until of course, it's not considered enough snow for a snow day, and now you're walking to class looking like you've just left the North Pole.

You can build snowmen and igloos, or you could go sledding.

Or, you can leave for work half an hour earlier than usual because of how bad the roads and sidewalks are.

You can snuggle in your blankets in bed, and stay all nice and toasty.

You can fight your windows that are frozen solid from the inside because the seal is broken and the moisture froze so you spend hours using a hair dryer to melt the ice because your room is now freezing. It's fine.

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.
