6 Reasons Why Spring Breaking With Your Parents Is Basically Like Going To Cabo With Your Roommates

My Spring Break is about to be so lit! I'm going to Punta Cana for six days with Mom and Dad! If you're taking this as sarcasm, you probably don't know my Mom and Dad. Vacationing with you're parents is really fun though! Here are the top 6 reasons why Spring Breaking with your parents is awesome!

1. Freeeeeeee

Break out your bikini and put away your wallet! Mom and Dad are buying!

2. You get their undivided attention

Mom and Dad love you and actually want to hear you go on and on and on about your friends at school and the parties you've been to and the clubs you've joined. They want to know everything and without your friends or siblings standing in your way the stage is all yours!

3. Quality time

After spending three months straight at school and calling my mom every day to tell her I miss her I'm ready for some one-on-one with Mom and Dad.

4. The food

Since you're not buying on Spring Break: Mom and Dad Edition you might actually get to go somewhere that isn't a fast food drive thru! Which is always a relief to your body after spending so much time eating fried food at school!

5. The fun stuff you can do

You can do fun stuff when you go away with your friends too, but some things are just better with parents. Mom and I went on a booze cruise scuba diving adventure on a pirate ship last year in Aruba and it was the most fun I think I've ever had with that gal!

6. Oh, the places you go

When you're not paying the air fare or the hotel (or anything) your parents get to pick the destination and since they've been around the block once or twice they know the hottest places to go and things to do.

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
