20 Reasons to go to summer concerts with your besties
Sarah Watson

Ahhh summer time. It really is the best time of year. Everyone's hair gets a little bit lighter, while skin gets a little bit darker. Longer days mean more time to get all the summer activities in. One of my favorite things to do in the summers is to make it out to concerts.

Summer concerts are always the best because they are outside in some really cool venues. You get the opportunity to see your favorite performers in so many cool places. It is also a time for some amazing memories with your best friends that will last a life time. Here are some of the reasons why summer concerts will always be my favorite.

1. Spending days/weeks being excited to see the performer.

If you're anything like my friends and I, the time spent before the concert consists of us blaring every single song ever made by them 24 hours a day.

2. The group text stays popping with plans for the concert.

So basically every time I leave my phone for more than 20 minutes, there are about 50 missed texts from the girls.

3. Going shopping for new clothes.

No concert experience is complete without the shopping for the most perfect outfit. There is ALWAYS a chance that your seats will be the lucky ones that get picked to go backstage (fingers crossed anyways).

4. More excitement in the group chat over planning outfits.

"That is so cute!"

"That might be a little too short..."

"I will not be seen with you in public wearing that."

These are just a few of the phrases that are bound to pop up.

5. Starting a Spotify playlist for the road trip to the venue.

6. Pinteresting fun ideas for posters (if you are into that thing).

7. Joining forces the day of to get everything going.

The moment of meet up just puts all of the excitment into MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE!

8. Everyone getting totally lit to previously mentioned Spotify playlist.

9. Find parking is much easier with five sets of eyes peeled, looking for spots.

Paying for parking is almost always a given but on the off chance you find free parking that isn't three miles away from the venue, get it before it's gone!!

10. The walk to the venue is basically a party because you've got your people with you.

11. And that long line isn't even intimidating because you know time will fly by.

If you haven't seen your buds in a while, this a great time to catch up on all the latest gossip, either in reference to the performer of the night or their own juicy drama.

12. Finally getting inside and making your way to your seats seems like such an exciting adventure.

"Are we on the balcony?" "Wait I think we're on the other side of the stadium..." "Does anyone have a map of this thing?"

13. When you make it to your seats, you all immediately begin to just talk about what songs you hope the artist plays.

Because everyone knows the feeling of your heart sinking all the way into your toes with glee to hear your favorite song performed live.

14. When you're with your friends, you have people to either love/judge the opening act with.

The opening act either becomes your new obsession or you get angry about having to pay for them...there is no in between.

15. If everyone makes one new friend in the crowd, you basically formed another posse.

Best friends and new friends all around, what could be better.

16. This friends/new posse makes the excitement of the performer finally making it on stage that much more exciting.


17. Having all your friends belt out your favorite lyrics alongside you is one of the best feelings ever.

Power in numbers y'all. Everyone can simultaneously shush the people behind you that declare "they can't hear the band" over our yelling. Tough nubs for you bud, we're too busy fangirling.

18. Leaving the concert seems like a pre party to the after party.

With the music still pumping through your veins, the entire posse heads to the car to go make some more mems.

19. Heading to the after party with all your new friends is another amazing adventure.

20. In the end, the night was about making amazing memories with the people you love the most.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
