Let a festival change your life

7 Reasons Why You NEED To Go To A Music Festival
Cassie Thorson

What could possibly be better than a weekend spent listening to music, surrounded by love, and free of judgment? Well, I’m sure you can think of a few things actually, but if you’re an open-minded spirit that loves adventure like me, boy do I have an opportunity for you!

Here are seven reasons why you need to make it to a music festival sometime in your life.

1. It'll be the time of your life — guaranteed

I seriously cannot emphasize this point enough. Having an open mind towards new experiences and people (within reason) is one of the most life-changing lessons you can learn. It’s with experience that knowledge is planted inside your brain and blossoms with growth.

2. The community is unreal

Never have I ever felt more surrounded by love, although I was entirely surrounded by strangers. Sure, most of them were on a substantial amount of drugs, but they were fun, accepting, and bursting with altruism—just my kind of people.

3. You need to experience music on this level

We all know how beautiful music is, yet live it’s even better — an out-of-body experience. Throw some beautiful colors and a crazy light show.

4. Dance dance dance!

There is nothing more freeing than dancing to music and letting your body move to the groove.

5. It's an escape from reality

This weekend is perfect for you to forget about the world for just a little while, something EVERYONE needs every once in awhile.

6. It's the perfect experience for you and your friends

A weekend getaway to be as crazy as you want with the best people in the world. What could go wrong?

7. They are great for pictures

If you're into that kind of thing, festivals are the perfect place to spice up your social media page with beautiful pictures of even more beautiful memories.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
