"It's Everyday Bro" Will Always Make Me Think Of Summer 2017 Memories

It's everyday bro with the summer 2017 memories.

If you don't know the song "It's Everyday Bro," then I don't really know where you've been, but good job avoiding the song.

This past summer I worked at a summer camp as an assistant counselor, and every week one of the campers in my cabin was obsessed with Jake Paul and the song “It’s Everyday Bro.” There was no getting away from the song, my campers sang it repeatedly.

So you know how if you hear a song a lot it starts to grow on you, and sooner or later you start liking it? Yeah, well that happened to me. I heard the lyrics to that song so much that I started singing the lyrics and later started listening to it. I pretty much heard this song everyday…bro.

If you haven’t heard the song, the music video is below. But if you have heard the song and don’t want to listen to it again (which I don’t blame you), skip to the list.

1. That one time my friend decided to be Moana.

2. That one time I told my friends we should recreate "The Cheetah Girls" picture from the first movie.

I really wanted to call a cab for this picture.

3. When you spent the summer with people you met when you were seven.

Being able to still be friends with people you met when you were seven is one of the best things to have in the world because those are the people you can be your true self with the most. They have seen you through thick and thin and I’m really happy I have these three in my life.

4. Doing the buddy board while it was raining...twice.

Since you don’t close down camp activities until you hear thunder when its pouring rain, you still have to be in the rain. So when it was our swim period, there were always those two kids that wanted to swim, and you had to let them swim. It was the worst.

5. That one time the Hungarian had a clothespin on his nose.

I don’t know why he had it on his nose, but he seemed pretty content with it.

6. The three times you decided to do "the floor is lava."

The first time was fine because I had a table to sit on. The second time was good too, but the third time I ended up hurting myself, so the floor wasn't lava to me for the rest of the summer.

7. That one time when your friend was really in her feelings.

Catching these type of moments on a video is always the best.

8. When the same friend every day has to say “Fuck you” to you on a daily basis.

I love you too...

9. When you make a reference to a musical every chance you get.

I went up to the same guy for a straight month saying, “Pardon me, are you Aaron Burr, sir,” and we would end up going back and forth singing the lyrics.

10. When I had to crush my mom’s dreams of what her favorite song meant.

“Candy Store” by 50 Cent is not about an actual candy store, sorry mom.

11. That one time my friend bought customized glasses that say “Eat My Ass.”

12. That one time the whole camp was singing the Harry Potter theme.

It was Harry Potter week…yet again.

13. The last CLB (Clearlake Bar) trip.

15.When I went to the Detroit Zoo with a friend to feed the giraffes.

But instead didn't feed them because they weren't offering, so we decided to watch them sniff each other's butts for about 30 minutes.

16. That one time one friend was rapping the lyrics to “It's Everyday Bro" and another one was twerking on a table.

It’s not a good song but its a catchy one.

17. When one friend decided to wear her belt like this…to Walmart.

I have no words.

18. When you had a #CrocsSquad.

Crocs are the best shoes on the face of the Earth.

Valentine's Day Shouldn't Be a Celebration

Reflections on the social obligations of Valentine's Day.

I think that Valentine's Day is a little too much. Don't get me wrong, V-Day is amazing for couples who are in happy and healthy relationships, but it adds an unnecessary pressure to conform to societal standards. This is mostly why I decided to wear a headband with the words "Girls Rule" on the top, in which people thought was a tiara. I mostly decided to hang out with gal friends and had an amazing day nonetheless. Valentine's day is a pretty dreaded day for people who aren't creative with it, and although it can be a great way of spreading love awareness, what I want to touch base with is this: why it has become so sensationalized today.

Some people really hate Valentines day--maybe because they have had bad relationships, horrible memories, are perpetually single, or even, because they feel an obligation or pressure to conform to the societal construct of the day.

The history of this loving day starts with the legend of St. Valentine. "Valentine’s Day, in fact, originated as a liturgical feast to celebrate the decapitation of a third-century Christian martyr," as stated from the Smithsonian. During his time period, marriage was arranged, not out of love. The priest (and many others after him) married couples who were in love in secret through the church. St. Valentine and his reputation since then has always been of spreading love through faith.

In modern day, this sense of traditional love is lost. Just like any other holiday in the U.S., the advertisements for Valentine's Day start staggeringly early. You roam the halls of the drug store in mid-January and find aisles loaded with flower bouquets and chocolate boxes. No matter how early or late it is, this is a visual reminder of the day, or your perpetual singleness, or anything you affiliate with it, no matter how hard you try and tell yourself that it isn't. Even if you are in a relationship, it puts an unwanted weight on your shoulders, and you think: What should I get for my partner? Will the gift be too much or too little?

Let's compare Valentines Day to other celebrations, such as Christmas, or Birthdays. Obviously, these are all substantially different in many ways, but one thing persists: presents. Gifts have been the main way of displaying affection. Our ways of gift-giving has been sensationalized by the media, and constant stimulation of gift-giving in the media.

Of course, it is nice to be given a gift, but there are other ways of displaying affection as opposed to gift-giving, which I think is not emphasized enough in our culture. For example, taking someone to do an activity instead of giving them a materialistic gift. Giving someone you care about the gift of an amazing memory with you. Or, displaying our feelings for each other in our daily lives in the little smiles and jokes with them.

If everyone expresses love and appreciation for people they care about in their lives every day, Valentine's day will no longer be the only day you express love, but an added bonus.

For me, I expressed my thorough love for chocolate and gal pals, and couldn't be happier.

Why I Am Taking Lent Seriously This Year

I epically failed last year, but this year I will do better.

So February is here before I even knew it, which means my favorite month of the year is here! As many of you know, Valentine's Day is February 14th but so is Ash Wednesday, marking the start of Lent. Last year, I was less than careful when it came to Lent and ended up giving up halfway through. I started Lent on a bad note last year when I decided that I was too busy to go to church for Ash Wednesday. The streak continued as I was terrible at not eating meat and fasting on Fridays and gave up quickly on my decision to give up soda. This year I'm deciding to do better; I need to do better this year. So this is how I'm going to take Lent seriously this year.

Lent was always a time that I dreaded as a kid. I hated the idea of having to give something that I enjoyed up, but now that I've gotten older I recognize the importance of Lent. I went to Catholic school for 12 years, and they ingrained into us the fact that Lent is supposed to mirror Jesus' sacrifice spending 40 days in the desert, but I honestly think that it is more than that. I definitely think that last year being my first year being away from the hold of Catholic school, I rebelled a little bit with my new found freedom of not being forced to participate in Lent. I didn't handle it in the right way, and so this year, I am seeing Lent as an opportunity for growth and to challenge my self-control a little. I am thinking about challenging myself and going vegetarian for Lent to try to better my health as well as trying to do more acts of service and to build upon my New Year's Resolution of positivity.

So this year I am definitely going to take Lent seriously to further and strengthen my faith. I know that I will probably stumble and make mistakes throughout, but I am confident that it will be a beneficial experience.
