June is almost over, but that doesn't mean your summer can't still be awesome! I use most of the items on this list almost daily, so maybe you would want to use them, too!

1. A good playlist

I love listening to music. Having a hype playlist for summer will help you stay in a good mood.

2. Cool clothes

I don't mean cool as in popular, I mean cool as in 100% cotton, breathable clothes. Where I live, the temperature can go over 110°, so having cool clothes helps to not be too hot while enjoying the sun outside.

3. Sunscreen

Yes, tans are great, but skin cancer is not. I have super pale skin and burn really easily, and NO ONE wants to have sunburns! Next time you go out on the lake or to the beach, make sure you pack sunscreen to avoid the sun's wrath.

4. A cute hat

Again, sunburns are not fun. Wearing a hat helps protect your scalp from getting sunburned. Also, in my experience, hats help me stay cooler because the sun isn't directly on the top of my head.

5. A couple of swimsuits that fit perfectly

The best part about summer is getting to show off your summer bod!! ;) Having swimsuits that fit your body not only make you feel comfortable, but also confident! It's also fun to show off your tan lines.

6. Good friends

Fun times and good vibes are better with good friends.

7. Sunglasses

There's nothing worse than squinting all the time because the sun is in your eyes.

8. A book you haven't read yet

Call me a nerd, but I love reading, especially by the pool.

9. A Polaroid camera (optional)

The best way to capture memories is with a camera, and Polaroids print out immediately. Plus, they look good on Insta.

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
