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.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

I have had the opportunity to visit so many places in my lifetime, and recently one of those places was Nashville, Tennessee. There is so much to do and see in Nashville but here are some of my favorites that I would highly recommend.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

October Is Overrated, Let's Just Accept This Fact

I have never liked the month of October. I like the fall weather and the beginning of wearing sweaters in the crisp fall air, but I never associated this with the month of October.

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus

This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
