Writing Is An Outlet To Express Yourself

Tell your story through words.

Writing Is An Outlet To Express Yourself

"Writing is the painting of the voice." -Voltaire

Remember all those days you spent keeping a journal or diary because that was what everyone did? Well, it is actually the best way to express yourself.

Writing does not always mean professional. Sometimes, it is just simply expressing yourself through words. Writing is art within itself. Creativity comes in all forms of expression.

Everyone looks for a way to express what they are feeling at any moment in their daily lives. What better way to do that than by writing anything and everything. I write to feel better or because it is the only thing that is enjoyable when I am stressed out about school work.

I write to express anger, stress, thoughts, love for writing, happiness and sadness.

Writing helps you to express your anger. When you release this feeling of anger, writing it down then crumbling it up. By crumbling it up and throwing the paper away, you are letting go of what is making you angry.

Expressing your stress on paper is one of the best ways to help you handle it. School can be overwhelming, so just sitting down and writing about what you feel is a big relief.

Putting all your thoughts on paper is amazing because sometimes you might even produce a great story. When you do not think about it, but just write, everything seems to just fall into place like it is meant to. The best songs and books come out of just writing anything that pops into your head at that moment in time.

Sometimes just explaining why I love writing helps me remember how amazing it is to me. You see, I write because I want to be an author some day, but I also write for fun. Non-serious writing is one of the most fulfilling stress reliever and a way to relax while on a homework or class break. By just writing whatever comes to your mind may just help you find answers to your homework questions that you have been struggling with for like ever.

Every moment should be recorded so you will remember where you have been and where you want to go from there--meaning writing down happy moments is just as important has your sad moments. Expressing your sadness makes you stronger and able to understand how you really feel about being upset.

Lastly, find a quiet area, bring your paper/typewriter/laptop, and pencil. You won't regret taking some time out of your busy schedule to just express yourself.

I hope after reading this article, you will consider picking up a notepad and a pencil or pen and write like everything depended on it.

Go forth and write great things!

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.

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.
