27 Pictures From My Road Trip Through Montana, Idaho And Wyoming

I don't think I have stopped staring at this place since my feet touched the ground.

Over the summer I went to where I have hence considered to be the most beautiful place I have ever seen, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. Here is why.

And that's just a few. To see more, you will need to book a plane ticket and fly west as quickly as you can.

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

5 Reasons Dogs Rule, And All Other Pets Drool

The only best friend I need.

As human beings we are all aware of the fact that dogs are wonderful creatures and that we don't deserve them because they are just too good for us. Obviously, right? But if you are a cat person, remain unconvinced, have never seen a dog in your life, or just wanna look at these cute pictures of puppers, then look no further.

Welcome to the 5 Reasons Dogs Are The Best Pets In The World.

1. They are always excited to see you.

There is nothing better than coming home after a long hard day of work or class to your best friend all excited to see you. Sure to make even a bad day, good.

2. They always make sure you are okay.

Have you ever cried and immediately found your dog sitting right at your face ready to make you feel better? It's because dogs love their owners so much that they would do anything to make them happy.

3. They are the best cuddlers.

If you can't sleep then I 100% recommend a puppy cuddle, or even if you can sleep, it is sure to be a better one with these lovely creatures curled up by your side. A warm blanket and a soft puppy...what could be better?

4. They can sense when something is wrong with you.

Did you now that dogs can sense health problems? It's a widely known fact that dogs can sense cancer and other diseases. What a deal: a cute furry friend, AND a health detector!

5. They are always there for you.

When everything goes wrong, they're always gonna be there for you. Loyalty is engrained in them and honestly, that's what makes them the best animals in the world. A constant light in your life.
