15 Songs To Add To Your Summer Playlist

I'm a big music lover. I'll listen to pretty much anything, from classic rock to classical. Music is like a kind of therapy, and it's helped me get through some pretty rough times. These songs are some of my favorites; they never get old. Whether life is going fantastically or not so much, these are definitely some jams to keep in mind.

1. Angela - The Lumineers

Released in 2016 on the album “Cleopatra,” this song has some seriously good vibes. It has a pure sound that’s relaxing and easy to listen to.

2. Cool Blue - Japanese House

This song is true to its name. It sounds like how water feels, with its electronic-indie mix.

3. A Thousand Times - Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam

Leithauser's raw and distinct vocals make this song. I can feel the power and emotion in his voice every time I listen to it.

4. Superposition - Young the Giant

A relatively new song, “Superposition” has it all. A pop-kind-of beat, enticing vocals, and catchy lyrics. I can’t get enough.

5. Northern Lights - Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab has been around for a while, and this track is on their newest album. I love listening to this one while driving; it feels like an endless summer.

6. Angels - Khalid

Everybody has heard “Young Dumb and Broke;" this track is from the same album. I love its simplicity, using primarily piano and vocals. Khalid's tone is nothing short of perfect in this song.

7. Open Your Eyes - Snow Patrol

This song is older, released in 2006. Regardless, I think it has an ageless, sincere sound. The lyrics are hopeful and powerful at the same time.

Old Pine - Ben Howard

This is one I’ve listened to a lot recently. It has a very relaxing, nostalgic feel. I can listen on repeat without getting bored.

9. The Gold - Manchester Orchestra

Everything about this song is perfect, from its strong, upbeat opening to its end. Listening to the harmonies in the chorus make me feel like I’m a part of the music.

10. Schizophrenia- Jukebox The Ghost

Fast, energetic, and fun. This is another fun one to drive to, especially when driving fast. It makes me feel invincible, like I can do anything.

11. Dissolve - Absofacto 

I can’t help dancing when I listen to “Dissolve.” It is incredibly smooth and sweet, almost like honey if honey were a sound.

12. Alaska - Maggie Rogers 

Maggie Rogers combines her amazing voice with new, different kinds of sounds. This is the song you listen to when you want to feel free.

13. Ghost - Jeremy Messersmith

Something about this song is haunting, and not just because of the title. The main guitar riff carries through the song, adding a little at a time and then all at once. This is another one I could listen to on repeat for hours.

14. Bambi - Hippo Campus 

“Bambi” is as smooth as silk from the very beginning. It has a kind of spacey, other-worldly feel, not only in the music but in the lyrics.

15. Airplanes - Local Natives

The beat of the drum draws you in, and the gorgeous harmonies keep you there. It has a very full sound, and just feels satisfying to listen to.

I hope some or even one of these songs can give you some kind of pleasure. Every one of them has helped me or made me happy in some way. They make my hard days easier and my good days better. Enjoy!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
