Every summer has it's own story.

12 Reasons Why Summer Is The Best Season

Summer is a time of no stress, long beach days, and endless memories. We all have those "summers to remember," and that's why I believe summer is the best of the four seasons. Here's a list to prove it.

1. Sunglasses

Sunglasses are always a must in the summer. Having a rough face day? Throw on some sunglasses. Need some cute accessories for an outfit? Throw on some sunglasses. Sunglasses outside and inside are always acceptable, and as an added bonus, you can take a nap, roll your eyes, or even stare at people without anyone having a clue.

2. Sunrises

The vibrant pinks, fierce reds, bright oranges, soothing yellows, and beautiful blues are a sight you will never forget. Nothing is more breathtaking than a summer sunrise. The whole world seems to stop and you can't help but think how good life is.

3. Beach days

Gabrielle Ciancio

The title of this one speaks for itself. Personally, the beach is my favorite place to be, especially on a hot day. Naps on the beach are amazing, and what's even better is a fat nap after the beach. The sea-salt and beaming sun give you that perfect skin and glowing feel. I live for sandy toes, salty hair, and the refreshing ocean water...plus you can get that perfect, golden tan.

4. Outdoor concerts

Gabrielle Ciancio

Sure you can go to concerts during the winter, but what's the fun in jamming out to your favorite artist inside? Sure you can go to a music festival, but who wants to rave in the freezing cold? Summertime is the perfect time to listen to some quality music from sunrise to sunset, while also having the freedom to roam around and have room to dance like a mad-man.

5. "Golden hour"

Gabrielle Ciancio

For all my Instagram junkies, summer is the best season for pictures. You can get that "picture-perfect" natural sunlight at any time of the day; and let me tell you, nothing is better than that golden-hour sun at the end of the day.

6. Friends

Gabrielle Ciancio

Being able to spend endless nights with your friends any day of the week is genuinely the best thing ever. Whether it's a late night food run, a fun adventure, or a casual hangouts, you are guaranteed to make the best memories with the people you love.

7. Minimal clothing.

Who wants to bundle up with layers on top of layers? It's awful when you wear a cute outfit in the winter and have to cover it up with a bulky coat. Bathing suits, crop tops, t-shirts, shorts, some flip-flops; it's so much simpler in the summer. No shoes, no shirt, and you still get service.

8. Fruit

Gabrielle Ciancio

It's a known fact..fruit is always more satisfying in the summer. There's nothing better than some juicy berries, a fresh fruit bowl, or a refreshing slice of watermelon on a hot summer day.

9. Aesthetic wrists

Gabrielle Ciancio

Nothing is cuter than an artsy set of bracelets. "Summer wrists" are all the rave right now, and summertime is the only acceptable time to bust out your best wrist accessories without it being covered by some long sleeves.

10. Ice cream

Gabrielle Ciancio

It seems like ice cream is never unhealthy in the summer. There's no better taste than a hearty scoop (or three) of some smooth, cold ice cream. Summer is the best time for endless frozen treats and some sweet toppings to go along with it. Cone or cup, it doesn't matter, as long as you get to enjoy that creamy goodness.

11. Tan

Gabrielle Ciancio

Let's be honest, we all love being tan. Being able to rock black or white and neon colors is the best thing ever. A tan looks good with literally everything and there's nothing more satisfying then those crisp tan lines from a long day at the beach.

12. Messy buns

Gabrielle Ciancio

Messy buns are acceptable in the summer, I repeat, messy buns are acceptable in the summer. Being able to throw your hair up on a hot day and not worry about how it looks is what's so amazing about summer. "Messy hair don't care" is a whole mood and I live for it. I swear buns always look better in the summer, don't fight me on it.

I hope that after reading this, I've convinced you why summer is literally the best season of them all. If you're still not convinced, try some of these things for yourself and you'll understood very quickly.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
