Dancing With The Heat: Summer '16

This summer, the heat is your friend.

Dancing With The Heat: Summer '16
Johnny Quiroz

The heat, hate it or love it, welcomes Fresno every year with open arms. We cannot run from it, cannot hide, nor can we fast forward the long, hot, sweaty summer, so what do you do? You celebrate the heat in all it’s glory at Summer Sweat.

This is a time to bring your empty stomach, bring out the best pair of dancing shoes you own, and ears open to the artists and bands that will be performing live. The hottest event of the summer is not to be missed. Summer Sweat is three to four events that run from June through October. Started in 2015 by Love the Captive, Summer Sweat features various artists and bands, food trucks, and vendors. Johnny Quiroz of Love the Captive describes Summer Sweat, in a zany way, he describes it as "a chance for us Fresnans to celebrate Fresno and it’s heat.” If you’re from Fresno, the heat is no stranger. Fresno’s summer temperatures can be as high as 108 degrees. To some, that may be unsettling, but Love the Captive brings something different to Fresno’s very hot summer. They throw multiple long summer parties in the Central Valley celebrating the heat.

Love the Captive is no secret to the Central Valley, founded in 2005, Love the Captive (aka Johnny Quiroz) has booked artists such as, The Growlers, Smoosh, Mayer Hawthorne, Skating Polly, Future Islands, Smoke Season, Saint Motel, Little Dragon, and many more. Love the Captive has brought, and, still continues to bring great musicians to Fresno. Summer Sweat is an even bigger and better experience of what Love the Captive continues to bring to the Central Valley. This year, Catacomb Party and Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company join in on the hottest all-ages party of the summer at just a $10 cover fee for each event. The event started June 25 and featured, just to name a few, Smoke Season, Judah, Sharks of Dance, CHYNA, and Wee Beasties. In case you missed Volume I, there is still time to catch Volume II of the event on July 30 which will feature, drum-roll please...a water-slide.

Volume II of Summer Sweat will be held at Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Company located in Downtown Fresno. To add more excitement, Tioga-Sequoia has award winning Brewmaster, Kevin Cox (Tioga-Sequoia). So, not only are you gaining a music, food, and shopping experience, those who are 21+, will have the opportunity to drink local craft beer from Tioga-Sequoia.

The event starts at 1:00 pm and ends at midnight, that is 11 hours of pure magic to your ears. Summer Sweat brings artists and bands from Fresno, Oakland, Palm Desert, Detroit, Las Vegas, and many more. The day will start with Fresno’s 1800’s and end the night with headliners Black Milk and Fierce Creatures, a local band who started it all with I Mostri Feroci. Fresno's summer should no longer be a season that is dread upon. Instead, it is a reason to go out and enjoy music, eat great food, drink local beer, shop, and meet new people. End your summer right, attend Summer Sweat. For more details, please visit, www.Summersweat.party

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.
