The Countdown to Coachella Begins

We couldn't be more excited!

The Countdown to Coachella Begins

As about everyone has heard through Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and more, the Coachella lineup has been released followed by the sellout of weekend 1 & 2 tickets in less than 40 minutes. 

If you were one of the fortunate souls who scored upon a ticket last Wednesday (or were even sneakier last May when presale tickets came out), then you have much to look forward to. 

Giant astronauts floating through the sky, the opportunity to hold a 200-yard-long strand of balloons, $5 watermelon slices, dust storms, getting your camp site destroyed by strong gusts of wind, old drunk people getting their groove on, mosh pits, lack of clothing, and listening to your favorite artists while covered in sweat and dirt all make up the experience of Coachella. 

If you've never been, you're in for a treat. And for those experienced veterans, you know how f*ckin awesome of a weekend you're about to have.

Somehow, Coachella manages to replicate a memorable, crazy and entertaining festival each year yet still concentrates on a variation of different artists and genres. This year, Coachella's lineup featured about 50% electronic/edm-type artists (which we can all predict... Sahara Tent's gonna be going offffff). Read more here.

Some may be excited, some may be confused, some upset, but Coachalla still manages to balance out favored genres with big rock names such as AC/DC and Steely Dan, indie artists like Tame Impala and Alt-J, and rap with the one and only Drake. Some other smaller artists I'd suggest checking out are the electro remixes of Gessafelstein, the modern funk beats of Grammatik and Ratatat, smooth flows of SBTRKT, or up-and-coming Hozier ("Take me to Church"), Vance Joy ("Riptide"), and Milky Chance ("Stolen Dance"), whom all share amazing indie rock style albums. And especially pay attention to artists like Deorro who just announced the end to his short-lived DJ career, meaning this is one of the only times you will be able to appreciate his music live. 

Overall, expect some major excitement and awesome times this year. So pack up your indie outfits & flower crowns, camel backs & camping gear, and prepare for a weekend that you'll remember for the rest of your life. Only 3 months to go!!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
