1. "Mine" by Slayyyter

This infectious pop single by rising pop princess Slayyyter is the newest ear-worm to grace everyone's ears this spring break. The flirtatious beat, '90s house inspired chorus is everything you need when you're by the beach and trying to make the most out of your spring break. It's a splash of pure ecstasy in the face in the most bubbly way.

2. "Bloodline" by Ariana Grande

Miss. Grande has been a force to be reckoned with in the music industry lately. Her hit album, "thank u, next" is taking the world by storm especially with how successful her lead singles have been. Although the non-single tracks are just as good, especially "bloodline." "bloodline" is one of the catchiest tracks on the entire album, and will definitely be the day-party beach track that everyone's going to sway too.

3. "Cherry" by Rina Sawayama

The magnificently underrated Rina Sawayama will definitely get you off your couch with this track. It sounds like a blooming garden filled with the most spring-full of colors. It's a dazzling palette on your dancing feet. "Cherry" is a coming-out anthem, it's personal, political and is a glistening bop that showcases femininity and queer expression.

4. "World Princess II" by Grimes

This adorably fairy like track visualizes a fun spring walk on a beautifully sunny day. Grimes is an immersive, creative and amazing artist that utilizes her genre-bending abilities to create signature pop-like anthems. "World Princess Part II," is the spring break track to get you out of your bed and into that morning run you've been promising yourself ever since you made your new year resolutions.

5. "5 dollars" by Christine and the Queens

Another uplifting track, Christine and the Queens also simply known as Chris, produces such a heartwarming track that feels like a motivating punch to the stomach. It's about a type of love you CAN buy and has all the self-loving aspects that make it such a grand track. Being a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Chris also tackles issues of fighting off discrimination as a queer human being and living her truth.

6. "Seventeen" by Sharon Van Etten

"Seventeen" is a song about witnessing the minor changes around your hometown, and is the epitome of a nostalgic walk back to your teen years. Sharon Van Etten in this case talks about New York and the many changes it's faced ever since she was seventeen. It exudes such an angst-like freedom that'll only put a fury to your spring break. It's a nice homage to early memories we love to hold on too and the theme of accepting change.

7. "Motion" by Boy Harsher

This electronic track will help get your spring break mind into a club setting. It's filled with hypnotic productions, ranging from the intense drums to the static synths. It's an experience, a dimming visual to help guide you through a dance break. It's a darker track that represents a hedonistic club night in your spring break. It's a night you wish you'd remember.

8. "Almeda" by Solange

Getting into the calmer tracks, Solange's "Almeda" is more of a palette cleanser from the last track something to soothe your soul and relax you during the break. "Almeda" is an homage to Solange's southern black culture, her hometown "Houston" and faith. It's a steady track, that trembles in purity and trueness. Solange brings all of her culture to the foreground, like a universal welcoming to what she and her roots are all about.

9. "Haunted Water" by SPELLLING

A melodic choir, sung by one powerful woman. "Haunted Water" by Spelling is the synth-y sunset on your Spring Break evening. The entire track is a journey, as Spelling guides the listener with her distressed vocals into a world obstructed by haunted water. You can feel the glisten of a dark aquatic abyss in this track, it's more of an atmospheric tide. This track will surely feel like you're floating on a river into the most unexpected depths.

10. "Andromeda" by Weyes Blood

This final track is the closer on this playlist, and it's a grand ending to the world. The track can be heard like a welcoming into the universe but in terms of this playlist its a conclusion to your spring break. The lyrics are godly and space-like referencing things like love and the galaxy. It's a galactic hug to your spring break, a full dive into the universe surrounding yourself and whats to come of it.

15 Things Only Lake People Will Understand

There's no other place you'd rather be in the summer.

The people that spend their summers at the lake are a unique group of people. Whether you grew up going to the lake, have only recently started going, or have only been once or twice, you know it takes a certain kind of person to be a lake person. To the long-time lake people, the lake holds a special place in your heart, no matter how dirty the water may look. Every year when summer rolls back around, you can't wait to fire up the boat and get back out there. Here is a list of things you can probably identify with as a fellow lake-goer.

1. A bad day at the lake is still better than a good day not at the lake.

It's your place of escape, where you can leave everything else behind and just enjoy the beautiful summer day. No matter what kind of week you had, being able to come and relax without having to worry about anything else is the best therapy there is. After all, there's nothing better than a day of hanging out in the hot sun, telling old funny stories and listening to your favorite music.

2. You know the best beaches and coves to go to.

Whether you want to just hang out and float or go walk around on a beach, you know the best spots. These often have to be based on the people you're with, given that some "party coves" can get a little too crazy for little kids on board. I still have vivid memories from when I was six that scared me when I saw the things drunk girls would do for beads.

3. You have no patience for the guy who can’t back his trailer into the water right.

When there's a long line of trucks waiting to dump their boats in the water, there's always that one clueless guy who can't get it right, and takes 5 attempts and holds up the line. No one likes that guy. One time my dad got so fed up with a guy who was taking too long that he actually got out of the car and asked this guy if he could just do it for him. So he got into the guy's car, threw it in reverse, and got it backed in on the first try. True story.

4. Doing the friendly wave to every boat you pass.

Similar to the "jeep wave," almost everyone waves to other boats passing by. It's just what you do, and is seen as a normal thing by everyone.

5. The cooler is always packed, mostly with beer.

Alcohol seems to be a big part of the lake experience, but other drinks are squeezed into the room remaining in the cooler for the kids, not to mention the wide assortment of chips and other foods in the snack bag.

6. Giving the idiot who goes 30 in a "No Wake

Zone" a piece of your mind.

There's nothing worse than floating in the water, all settled in and minding your business, when some idiot barrels through. Now your anchor is loose, and you're left jostled by the waves when it was nice and perfectly still before. This annoyance is typically answered by someone yelling some choice words to them that are probably accompanied by a middle finger in the air.

7. You have no problem with peeing in the water.

It's the lake, and some social expectations are a little different here, if not lowered quite a bit. When you have to go, you just go, and it's no big deal to anyone because they do it too.

8. You know the frustration of getting your anchor stuck.

The number of anchors you go through as a boat owner is likely a number that can be counted on two hands. Every once in a while, it gets stuck on something on the bottom of the lake, and the only way to fix the problem is to cut the rope, and you have to replace it.

9. Watching in awe at the bigger, better boats that pass by.

If you're the typical lake-goer, you likely might have an average sized boat that you're perfectly happy with. However, that doesn't mean you don't stop and stare at the fast boats that loudly speed by, or at the obnoxiously huge yachts that pass.

10. Knowing any swimsuit that you own with white in it is best left for the pool or the ocean.

You've learned this the hard way, coming back from a day in the water and seeing the flowers on your bathing suit that were once white, are now a nice brownish hue.

11. The momentary fear for your life as you get launched from the tube.

If the driver knows how to give you a good ride, or just wants to specifically throw you off, you know you're done when you're speeding up and heading straight for a big wave. Suddenly you're airborne, knowing you're about to completely wipe out, and you eat pure wake. Then you get back on and do it all again.

12. You're able to go to the restaurants by the water wearing minimal clothing.

One of the many nice things about the life at the lake is that everybody cares about everything a little less. Rolling up to the place wearing only your swimsuit, a cover-up and flip flops, you fit right in. After a long day when you're sunburned, a little buzzed, and hungry, you're served without any hesitation.

13. Having unexpected problems with your boat.

Every once in a while you're hit with technical difficulties, no matter what type of watercraft you have. This is one of the most annoying setbacks when you're looking forward to just having a carefree day on the water, but it's bound to happen. This is just one of the joys that come along with being a boat owner.

14. Having a name for your boat unique to you and your life.

One of the many interesting things that make up the lake culture is the fact that many people name their boats. They can range from basic to funny, but they are unique to each and every owner, and often have interesting and clever meanings behind them.

15. There's no better place you'd rather be in the summer.

Summer is your all-time favorite season, mostly because it's spent at the lake. Whether you're floating in the cool water under the sun, or taking a boat ride as the sun sets, you don't have a care in the world at that moment. The people that don't understand have probably never experienced it, but it's what keeps you coming back every year.

Your 2019 Spring Break Packing List

It is coming up so you better get packing!

12
views

Are you ready for the sun and the sand? I am! However, I constantly procrastinate packing. It seems to be a lot of work and without a list, it feels impossible. So, I have put off my procrastination and made a pretty detailed 2019 spring break packing list!

1. Bathing suits

You know you need them! I suggest going and finding the perfect fit for you. Swimsuits can be tricky. However, everybody is a bathing suit body! So, go get a suit so you can go get a tan!

2. Sun screen!

You need it, so get it! Trust me, you do not want to get burnt. It could ruin your entire spring break. So lather that sunscreen on and hit the beach!

3. Shorts

You can dress them down or dress them up! Plus, you won't be hot. Long pants at the beach? Nope!

4. Sun glasses

Keep those eyes protected! The sun can damage your vision, so do not risk it. Also, with the right sunglasses, you can make quite the fashion statement.

5. Sweatshirt

The beach can get a bit chilly at night or if you aren't going far south. So, you might want to be prepared. Also, you don't wanna be cold all day after being in the water!

6. Pants

Like the sweatshirt sometimes you just want to be warm. I would suggest a loose beach look instead of jeans, but you can make jeans beachy too! just be prepared in case you have a chilly day,

7. Pajamas

You have to sleep, or at least try too. Also, you might want a lazy day! don't forget to pack something to sleep or chill in.

8. Beach towel

You need something to dry off with! Also if you want a good tan a beach towel is perfect to lay on when on the beach. you need it, and they can be pretty cheap.

9. Something to hold water

Like a water bottle or Yeti cup. Hydration is important when it is hot outside. You can easily get dehydrated on the beach so make sure you have something that allows you to have cold water constantly

10.  Hat

The sun is not great for your skin. So, having a hat is pretty important. Keep your skin healthy by keeping in the shade!

Spring break is a great time where you get to relax and not worry about school. If you pack right then you can avoid unnecessary stress. Have fun and be safe. Try to actually relax and take a week to treat your self!
