Growing up in Central California allowed me to experience a lot of different places when I was younger. We could be in the Bay Are, Sacramento, Yosemite, LA, or at countless beaches along the coast within two or three hours. However, the place that I have always enjoyed the most was the beach. Being that June is the sixth month of the year and is the start of summer, here's six reasons the beach is one of my favorite places.

1. The Weather

We all know that there is never bad weather at the beach. Whether it's sunny, cloudy, hot, or cold, you know you'll always have a good time. Make sure to check the forecast before you leave the house though!

2. The Views and The Sounds

What's better than the sound of waves crashing against the shore and a view of the ocean stretching out for hundreds of miles in front of you? Oh, you couldn't think of anything? I figured.

3. The Smells

While walking along the boardwalks that a lot of beaches have, there are a multitude of smells that we are greeted with- waffle cones, pizza, corn dogs you name it! Not to mention the smell of the ocean mixed in the air.

4. The Shopping

Along with the smells on the boardwalk, there's always a ton of stores for you to spend time perusing. You can find stores ranging from little gift shops to high end boutiques, so there's a lot of variety to choose from.

5. Ice Cream, Candies, and Other Snacks

Shops along the beach front always have amazing food. You will have a variety of options to curb your appetite ranging from shops to grab a waffle cone from, to sit down restaurants serving all kinds of foods like Mexican, Asian, and Seafood.

6. The Sunsets

Sunsets at the beach are second to none. Ending your day at the beach while watching the sunset is one of the best ends to a trip I can imagine.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

A high metabolism isn't a get-out-of-jail-free card!

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
