Summer is a season, no matter where you are, that everyone enjoys. For students, it's three months of not having to worry about school. For families, it's the perfect time to take family vacations and spend quality time with those you love. For the fashionista out there, it's the best time to showcase the best fashion of year.

Each season offers different style and statements that become all the rave for a while; summertime is no different. It brings the best fashionable, flowy, and fun outfits for people all season long. But no outfit is complete without its accessories! Accessories are what complete an outfit, whether it's jewelry, purses, hats, or sunglasses.

For the perfect summertime outfit, accessories are a necessity! This summer, there are two major trends that are popular in accessories: purses and sunglasses. Both of these accessories, just like any other, can make any outfit complete.

Here are 10 trends of purses and sunglasses to look out for this summer.

1. The net bag

Typically, this bag is seen as a beach bag only, but that is not the case anymore. This is a great bag to add to your outfit to make it feel like you're by the beach, even when you're not!

2. Oversized bags

The oversized tote became a huge phenomenon through brands like Louis Vuitton in the early 2000s, and now it's back! These bags are perfect for a quick weekend trip or for storing all the necessities us girls need on a regular basis.

3. PVC handbags

PVC has become a major trend in not only apparel but handbags as well. This trend may have become a fashion statement, but it has also helped with safety, as well. Due to concert shootings, some arenas have required a maximum bag size people are allowed to bring it as well as being able to see what people are carrying as a safety precaution. Why not make your see-through bag as trendy as you can!?

4. Circular handbags

Circular handbags are becoming one of the most popular trends this season. This trend can be traced back to one of its first influencers, Chloe. The Chloe bag became a popular bag that added circular embellishments and handles to its bags. This small change caused many designers to begin to incorporate this trend. Now it can be seen anywhere!

5. Pastel bags

Pastels are yet another trend in apparel for the summer, which means it has also found its place in the handbag industry.

6. Large cat eye glasses

Cat-eyed sunglasses are making its appearance in many different forms this summer, oversized being one of them. This trend makes an outfit pop by being bold and trendy.

7. Retro cat eye

Another form of the cat-eye sunglasses that are making its mark on summer 2018 is the retro cat-eye. These are most notably seen worn from supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. More of a fashion statement than practical, this trend is still a great one!

8. Colored lenses

Color-coordinate your outfit with your sunglasses! Colored lenses are another major trend this summer. Feeling like an all-red outfit? Throw a pair of red colored lenses on to complete the look!

9. Printed frames

Printed sunglasses are great addition to your sunglass collection for the summer. They offer a fun, different style to complete your summer outift!

10. Embellished frames

If you are trying to make an extreme statement this summer, embellished frames are the way to go. This is a bold statement to rock and show everyone who's boss!

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.

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.

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.
