Oh, the summer joys.

Summer means something different to everyone. To me it means many things, including traditions, family, friends. These things are some of the reasons over the years, my summers have always been different. Different camps, different vacations, but some things always stay the same. Those are the things that make every summer memorable.

1. Swimming.

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to swim. My cousins and I spend whole days in and on the water. Lakes, pools, beaches, rivers, anything. Water flowing around us, so powerful, yet calm. During the other season, it isn’t warm enough to be in the water, but in the summer we can spend our endless days swimming and having fun on the water.

2. Free time.

During the school year, and other seasons, I am usually too busy to do many of the things that I am interested in doing outside of school. I spend my summers reading, drawing, and focusing on things that I don’t usually have time for. I love summer because I love being able to do things that I don’t have time for during the school year.

3. Family.

My cousins and I are all really busy during the school year, but that all changes over the summer. We spend lazy summer days relaxing, exploring, spending time together. I get to see my family every summer, and even spend a week at the beach with some of them. Summer is my favorite season because it’s when cousins became some of my best friends.

4. Friends.

I have friends that I don’t always get to see during the rest of the year, but I always see them in the summer. In the summer, we can do whatever we want and spend as much time together as we want. I also have made some amazing friendships at sleepaway camps. The friends I’ve made at camp are some of the closest friendships I have and I have summer to thank for that.

5. Being Outside.

During the summer, I can be outside all of the time. Feel the wind in my hair, sun on my skin, ground under my feet. Something about being outside and being around nature recharges me and pushes away the stresses of the school year. During the summer, I spend as much time as I can outside and that’s one reason it is my favorite season.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11866

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
