10 Annoying Things That Always Happen In The Summer

Everyone is looking for a way to escape the heat.

At first, it was too cold (because of global warming (yes, it's real!)), but now it's way too hot. Summer break is fun because it includes fun at the beach, hanging out with friends, and ice-cream, but it also brings along some cons.

1. Power outages happen at least once every week

When everyone is using their air conditioner at the same time, it ain’t pretty. Power outages entail going back to medieval times with candles and NO AC.

2. Snapchat is filled with stickers showing the temperature

Giphy

Please stop posting about the temperature on Snapchat. We get it!! It’s hot!

3. Having to change twice in one day because you outsweated your first outfit

Giphy

I don’t know if this is TMI, but body sweat is a big no-no.

4. Getting into your car after it’s been sitting in the sun for a good hour

Giphy

If you own a car with black seats, you'll probably need aloe for all those burns on your back thighs.

5. Seeing your utilities bill at the end of month

Giphy

Ah, the pitfalls of instant gratification. Air conditioner, you are good but too expensive.

6. The weather is ALWAYS one of the topics of conversation

Giphy

Let’s stop this small talk about the weather. Yes, it’s hot, but talking about it won’t change anything!

7. Going to the beach results in sand EVERYWHERE

Giphy

Going to the beach is a double-edged sword. You get to play in the sun and have fun, but sand goes EVERYWHERE!!

8. Tan lines are no joke...sock tans, shorts tans, farmers tans, sandals tans

Giphy

Tan lines are literally the worst. Currently combating a Birkenstocks tan right now..

9. Insects are literally everywhere

Giphy

This is me if any bug comes near me. I know God created these bugs, but please just stay away from me!!

10. The smell of sunscreen hits you like a truck at the beach (or anywhere, for that matter)

Giphy

Don’t forget to apply your sunscreen, but remember to spray your sunscreen AWAY from other people. It’s not fun (nor safe) to inhale all that spray on sunscreen.

Summer break is fun and all, but is it really? Is it worth all the sweat, sand, tan lines, and insects?

An Open Letter To Every Athlete On Their Senior Night

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened"

Dear Seniors,

For many of you, today was a day that you had always wished would come sooner, only to find that when the day arrived wishing for it to come was the last thing you truly ever wanted.

When stepping out onto the court or field or rink for the very last time today, take a moment to stand quietly and look out into the crowd, look to your teammates, to your coaches, and to your fellow seniors, and remember the way this made you feel, as this is a feeling you will remember for the rest of your life.

Today and every day moving forward will be filled with memories that will last you a lifetime.

Today is a day bound to be filled with endless amounts of tears, both happy and sad, so let it be. Let these feelings consume you, and serve as a reminder that no matter where you may go in life from this very moment, that you have made a family of your own. That you have changed the lives of others by just simply being in theirs.

That all the little things were really the big things, like the nicknames you had for your teammates, or your favorite song to sing in the locker room before a game. These things that never seemed to mean anything at the time are all the things that you will carry with you when you leave this place you call your home away from home.

On this day, years from now you will not remember the wins and losses of each season, but the people that took this journey with you and never let you look back.

The teammates that picked you up and carried you through the good and the bad of each day. The ones that taught you to see the good in all things. The ones who never let you live down the stupid things you did, mainly because they did them with you. And even the ones that you couldn't stand 99.9% percent of the time.

You will remember the coaches that pushed you and never let you give up.

You will remember all the times they yelled and made you run until you couldn't walk. The times that they depended on you to be the leaders we all knew you could be. But more than any of that, you will remember the opportunity they gave you to play the game you learned to love, the game that changed your life, the game that taught you more lessons about life, love and dedication than anything ever could.

On this day I ask you to remember a few things. I ask that you remember that the impact you have had on your teammates' lives is unmeasurable, never doubt that. The time you have spent dedicated to this sport that you love was never, EVER a waste of your time, because you are a better person because of it.

I ask you to remember that although the sadness you may hold in your heart overwhelms you, that you have found a part of you along this journey that will help you follow your dreams, whatever they may be.

Play your heart out today, and leave knowing you've given it all you've got just one last time. Leave knowing that you are one of the lucky ones. Remember the love, remember the defeat, remember the laughs and the tears, remember the battle wounds. Remember this feeling, always and forever.

Best of Luck,

Your Biggest Fan

21 Things To Do In October For The Girl Who Doesn't Like Halloween

And not a single one of them will jump out at you and say "BOO," I promise.

I get it, Halloween is fun. It's probably the only day of the year when it is not only acceptable but expected, to dress up in a ridiculous costume and eat candy all night long. I really don't have anything personal against Halloween, I've just never been the biggest fan of it.

BUT that doesn't mean I don't still love fall and October and all of the wonderful things it has to offer. I've listed here some things that you can do this October that don't involve any spooks or scares!

1. Dress up in your coziest fall clothes.

Even though it's probably still 85 degrees outside.

2. Just go ahead and start listening to Christmas music now.

Tbh I don't normally support premature Christmas jams, but it's not like there's any good Halloween music out there.

3. Go to the movies... and not watch a scary movie.

Yes, they do in fact exist.

4. Visit a pumpkin patch.

At the very least, get a pic for the Insta.

5. Drink a pumpkin spice latte.

6. Like literally just sit in a coffee shop and appreciate the fact that fall is finally here.

Extra points if you're by a window and can watch the leaves fall while listening to folk music.

7. Bake something yummy.

Burn one of your Bath and Body Works candles while you're at it for extra yummy smells!

8. Watch playoff baseball.

9. Watch Halloweentown (AKA the only Halloween movie you'll ever get me to watch).

10.  Smell every fall-scented candle at Bath and Body Works.

11. Find a fair or fall festival near you.

Think corn dogs and ferris wheels. The more fried food, the better!

12. Use the money you aren't spending on Halloween costumes to buy more pumpkins.

13. Have a (non-scary) movie marathon at home!

Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Twilight, the possibilities are endless! Grab your coziest blankets and your best friends and get ready for a fall day well spent.

14. Go to a corn maze.

A not scary one, of course.

15.  Stock up on Halloween candy for yourself.

16.  Go to a Farmer's market.

This is a great thing to do more often than just October, but it's a proven fact that everything is just more exciting when pumpkins are involved.

17.  Watch Friday Night Lights.

The show, the movie, or an actual Friday night football game. Any and all are acceptable.

18.  Go thrift shopping to add to your fall sweater collection.

Or just raid your grandpa's closet.

19.  Make one of those cute autumn wreaths for your front door.

Instagram

Or another fun craft to show just how much you love fall.

20.  Skip out on the Halloween parties and drink more pumpkin spice lattes instead.

21.  Enjoy October for what it is - truly one of the best times of the year.

If you are one of those people who considers Halloween a part of "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year," I hope you don't take this article personally. Maybe you never realized how truly versatile this time of year is!
