My Summer 2k16 Mixtape

Summer isn't summer if you don't have some killer tunes to jam out to! So I conjured up a list of some of my favorites this summer.

Summer is all about rolling the windows down, cranking up the radio and just embracing the warm weather. These are the perfect moments to lose our voices from singing along to the music at the top of our lungs as we're heading off to the beach for a perfect day of relaxation. Music plays a major role in anyone's summer. Whether you're in the car, at the beach, out at the pool or at a cookout, no summer event is complete without music.

I know for me personally, my summer tends to fill up with concert after concert, which I love! Who wouldn't want to spend countless summer nights with friends listening to music live and having a blast?! Concerts will forever be one of my favorite parts of my summers. Whether it's seeing Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean to Taylor Swift, Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato or even going to the Vans Warped Tour or the much anticipated Blink 182 tour (which I've been waiting for for eons!), I've been to many and I wouldn't trade it for the world. (And because some of these are concerts I've been to this summer, be prepared to see some of these artists filling up my playlist).

Now, I know everyone out there has some sort of playlist that they've got going on with their perfect summer go-tos and songs specifically for Summer 2016. I know I sure do, so I figured I might as well grace the world with my own personal Summer 2k16 Playlist (or Mixtape as the cool kids may call it).

(P.S. Yes, there will in fact be country music on this playlist because summer is all about country!)


1. "The Middle" - Jimmy Eat World

Of course, there will be some songs that should be on everyone's summer playlist every single year. This is one of my favorite songs of all time and will forever be a part of my summer playlists no matter what.

2. "Ocean Avenue" - Yellowcard

Same goes for this one. Everyone knows it. Everyone listens to it. And everyone should have it on their summer playlists. No questions asked. But wait, one question: Is it even summer without a little Yellowcard? No. So add it to your playlist ASAP.

3. "Summer Girls" - LFO

As you can tell, I have a very very diverse music taste, and I'm totally OK with it. I love a good country song but also a good alternative song where I can feel a bit edgy. Summer is all about being adventurous and just having fun, so we should all to try to listen to some new music, share some new findings with our friends and make memories.

Music is powerful. It makes us feel alive and happy. So get out there, crank up the tunes and bust a move.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
