10 Reasons July Is The Best Month Out Of The Year

It is right in the middle of summer.

10 Reasons July Is The Best Month Out Of The Year


It seems to be flying by this year! Everyone is home for summer and avoiding the idea of having to go back to school (or for some, looking forward to heading back). However, what makes July so special?

Whether you are working a 40 hour work week, partaking in summer school, or have the summer to just kick-back and relax, below is a list of 10 reasons as to why July is so great.

1. It is right in the middle of summer


Summer can either feel as though it is going by extremely fast or extremely slow. July is a month that is smack in the middle of summer. You either are almost back at school and sad about it OR you are almost back at school and cannot wait to see your college friends.

2. HOT weather


The weather in July is known for its heat, yet it is my favorite time of year because of how warm it is. In the mornings you do not even need a jacket and the nights seem close to the perfect weather. It is the best time for night swimming and late night drives with the windows down.

3. Concert central


Concerts are my favorite but summer concerts ARE THE BEST. With admirable, warm weather, it is the best time to grab some of your closest friends and grab some lawn seats and sing your heart away to a good old country song.

4. Cancer season


July is also the month of the Cancer zodiac. Apart from being my birthday month, it is also a fun month if you have friends with birthdays this month. Most likely you'll be hanging out at the beach or doing something fun outdoors because it is so pretty.

5. Independence Day


Tons of food, fireworks, and time with family & friends. Independence is one of those feel-good holidays right in the beginning of July. It is also a time where we can take a break in the middle of busy summers to appreciate how great it is to be American.

6. State fairs


State fairs are the definition of summer. Carnival rides, fried EVERYTHING, and fun times with friends. It is my go-to thing to do in July and absolutely one of my favorite events of the whole year.

7. No-makeup look


The best part about July? It is so hot that the majority of people are not wearing make-up! Or for those who are they are rocking the "no-makeup makeup look" which is so natural and pretty. You will not catch me caking my face like I do during the winter months.

8. Summer shows


Summer has so many good shows on TV. A few of my favorites are "Big Brother" and "The Bachelorette". "Big Brother" is on three times a week and follows houseguests competing for half a million dollars while "The Bachelorette" is DRAMA, but that good drama.

9. BBQs and bonfires


BBQs and bonfires are SO much fun. They have a way of bringing tons of people together and allow for a great sense of community.

10. Baseball games


Baseball games are a blast. They make for great date nights or going out with your friends! I truly never feel like it is summer until I go to my first baseball game, and going in July seems to make it so much sweeter.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
