If you haven't yet been to Firefly, I'm sure with the time approaching you're somewhat at a loss as to what you need to pack. If you have been, how much of what you brought did you actually use? Let's make a list of some things you absolutely cannot forget to pack in these next few weeks.

1. A small bag.

If you're a trend-avoider like me, you're avoiding the fanny pack like it's your life's mission. I hate to break it to you, but you may just need to succumb to the 1980's side bag. The festival is strict as to what bags are allowed, and the last thing you want is to try and carry all your stuff throughout the day. Pack a small water bottle, some snacks, and some sunscreen and you'll be set. (While we're on it, don't bring any currency into the fest... you don't need any thanks to Firefly's Apple Pay setup).

2. A small water bottle.

I mentioned putting this in your small bag, but I really need to emphasize this one. DON'T BRING THOSE GIANT COOLER BOTTLES. Seriously, you may need to refill your small bottle a few times, but that will be much better than lugging that huge jug around with you to every stage.

3. Sunscreen.

Never will you ever be too cool for some SPF 50. Getting a sunburn on the first day will seriously screw with your experience, don't risk it. Just lather up before heading to the festival for the day and make sure your friends do the same.

4. Umbrella.

Hope for sun, prepare for rain. Of course, we're all hoping for a nice suntan to take back home with us, but the weather really doesn't care what we want (Yeah, even if we spent $300 on this). Prepare for the rain by bringing an umbrella and maybe even a few beach towels to dry off with. (Free shower, anyone?)

5. Sunglasses.

A must if you actually plan on seeing your favorite artist up there on stage. If you're at a certain stage when the sun decides to linger right at eye level, good luck seeing much of anything. Unfortunately, I lost my shades the day before the festival and looked lost for three days straight.

6. Glitter.

You may be asking yourself… is glitter really considered an essential? Yes, it is. For one thing, it's just fun. Where else do you get to load yourself with glitter and have it on all of your belongings for months?

7. A positive attitude.

It might rain. The line may get long. You'll probably be hot and have a sore body the entire time. You might have forgotten your favorite bralette at home. But really… who cares? Acknowledge that everything might not be picture perfect but let it go and have an amazing time!

As they tend to say, its the most wonderful time of the year! People have begun to compile their Christmas to-do lists in anticipation for the season of sugarplums and gingerbread.

The history of the Christmas to-do lists goes back hundreds of years, almost as old as the holiday itself, however, people tend to fall out of this habit as they get older. This is unfortunate, as the theme of Christmas tradition can add bundles of the spirit of joy to your families.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn

College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.
