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!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
