5 Things To Get You In The Mood For Summer

The time change just doesn't do it for me.

5 Things To Get You In The Mood For Summer

The sun is out, the skies are blue, and the beach is calling your name. Summer is just around the corner, but sometimes pulling out the flip flops just isn't satisfying enough. I know you're ready to pull your hair out as the teacher lectures, so while you wait on classes to end, here are five things you can do to get you in the summer mood.

1. Get (or give yourself) a pedicure.

There is nothing that makes sandals more enticing than giving your feet a little TLC! I don't know about you, but I tend to ignore those tiny little beauties when I don't see them all winter. My favorite at-home is letting them soak in hot water full of coconut and eucalyptus oil, then rubbing them down with a good pumice stone.

2. Invest in quality sunscreen.

We've all started taking green-living seriously, and one thing that is always chock full of nasty chemicals is sunscreen! Nobody wants to sacrifice their skin, whether to the sun's rays or to toxic skincare. Here, I've found a list of six brands that will take your sun-bathing to the next level.

3. Go shopping.

Let's face it, whether you're buying a new swimsuit or another flowery sundress, buying new clothes for summer always puts you in a good mood.

4. Hit up your local farmer's market.

I already love fruits, but summer always brings it to a different level! My apartment gets an overload of melons, berries, and greens, and my husband usually complains about a lack of Cheez-Its. As the days get longer, farmer's markets roll in the fresh produce, and you won't regret paying a little extra for the good stuff.

5. Get outside.

The short, bleak days of winter are gone, and that means that there are no more excuses for you to sit in your room watching Netflix all day. Go for a walk. Smell the flowers. Feel the sun on your face. Run around. Ride a bike. Get out of your sweats and out of the house, because summer is almost here!

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
