It is officially summer time! Pool parties, bonfires and days on the lake are finally upon us. As you grab your best friends and head out to do some fun summer activities, don't forget to update that summer playlist. I mean, a good playlist makes just about everything complete.

Make your summer the best yet by adding these 19 songs to your summer 2019 playlist.

1. "Cross Me" - Ed Sheeran, Chance The Rapper, PnB Rock

Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber and PnB Rock have given us quite the bop to dive right into summer with. Definitely don't sleep on this one.

2. "Easier" - 5 Seconds of Summer

Honestly, 5SOS has been bringing the jams lately. It's no surprise that "Easier" is another one.

3. "A Whole New World" - ZAYN, Zhavia Ward

ZAYN, Zhavia Ward AND "Aladdin"...do I really have to explain why I'm excited?

4. "High With Somebody" - Sandro Cavazza, P3GI-13

I came across "High With Somebody" a few days ago and have had it on repeat since and I bet you will too once you give it a listen.

5. "Do It Again" - No Rome

A bop that still hasn't gotten old. If you haven't heard of No Rome definitely go check him out.

6. "Sincerity Is Scary" - The 1975

Can you really have a summer playlist without a The 1975 song on it? I really don't think so.

7. "okay" - LANY, Julia Michaels

LANY and Julia Michaels? Yes please. "okay" is not only relatable lyrically, but it is beyond catchy.

8. "I Don't Care" - Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber

I definitely never saw this collab coming, but I am so glad that it happened. Also, the music video is quite entertaining.

9. "If I Can't Have You" - Shawn Mendes

I have been obsessed with this track since it dropped. Shawn Mendes does not disappoint with "If I Can't Have You."

10. "Love Me Less" - MAX, Quinn XCII

MAX and Quinn XCII's "Love Me Less" is a definite must-have on your summer 2019 playlist. There is so much energy and great vibes in the song that I guarantee it will become one of your new favorites. MAX is truly so talented so if you haven't given his music a listen definitely do so.

11. "Unbelievable" - Why Don't We

Why Don't We really brought it with their new track "Unbelievable." The music video is pretty cheeky (watch it and you'll know what I mean" and the song as a whole is fun and catchy as heck.

12. "Why Did You Run?" - Judah & the Lion

Judah & the Lion always bring something special, but "Why Did You Run?" from the band's recently released album "Pep Talks" has really stood out to me. The track has such a raw feeling to it and I just can't stop listening.

13. "Encore" - Catfish and the Bottlemen

Catfish and the Bottlemen's new album, "The Balance" is full of great tracks, but "Encore" really shines. It gets your heart beating fast in a good way and I can just imagine about how amazing this song would sound live.

14. "Without You" - Avicii, Sandro Cavazza

This has been a favorite song of mine for a while now, but Avicii's "Without You" slaps. It is so fun and upbeat and would be a perfect addition to your summer 2019 playlist.

15. "Hurts 2B Human" - P!nk, Khalid

When I saw that P!NK and Khalid collaborated on their track "Hurts 2B Human" I knew it would be something special. Not only does it hit you in the feels, but it's a bop.

16. "Deep" - Julia Michaels

I've been vibing with Julia Michaels's "Inner Monologue Part 1" lately and "Deep" is something else. So good.

17. "Truth Hurts" - Lizzo

Go play this song by Lizzo and turn it up real loud. You're welcome.

18. "Television Romance" - Pale Waves

I've been lucky enough to catch Pale Waves play live a few times on their tours with The 1975 and each time I am reminded just how much I love this song.

19. "Summer Days" - Martin Garrix, Macklemore, Fall Out Boy

I don't think there could be a better song for your summer 2019 playlist. This is a must have.

Eat your way through this country's greatest food — from your couch.

Call it the easily bored Gemini in me, but I'm constantly looking for new food to try. Usually, travel quenches my taste for new and exciting cuisines, but given the fact that international travel is not always a possibility, I've begun exploring alternatives.

In the interest of wanting to support the Black community and Black-owned businesses, and also wanting to try some of the country's greatest food without having to get off my couch, I started off (pessimistically) doing research, only to find that the options were vast.

24 Beauty And Style Brands Donating To The Fight To End Police Brutality Against Black People

From small, boutique brands to legacy fashion brands.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
