Summer bops are important. Critical even. The music can really change up the ~feeling, dare I say vibes~ of the beach day, the road trips, the lake day—whatever it is!! Here are a few of my favorite summer bops this sunny (and rainy in the afternoon, if we're being honest) season.

1. "Feelin Good, Like I Should"

The name says it all

If you haven't heard this group of songs, you are missing some serious dancing in your life! These songs are 100% sure to make you get up and groove (not a guarantee, but a promise. Don't make me break my promise, you better dance!)

"Heaven Falls/ Fall on Me"—Surfaces

"Sunday Best"—Surfaces

"Dazzle"—Oh Wonder

"1950"—King Princess

"3 Nights"—Dominic Fike

"Goodie Bag"—Still Woozy

2. "Drivin' To Hawaii"

Sounds of the North Shore (maybe I’ve never been)

These are a bit slower and perfect for relaxing in the sand or next to the pool! Or brushing your teeth, I tend to listen to my playlists then too, just saying.

"Drivin' to Hawaii"—Summer Salt

"Wade in Your Water"—Common Kings

"Weight of Sound"—Stick Figure Ft. TJ O'Neill

"Revvin' my Cj7"—Summer Salt

3. "Let's Hit The Skate Rink"

fourth grade here we come!!

Maybe it's just me, but I am always down for some circa fourth-grade tunes that remind me of those skate rink nights in the summer spent zipping in circles around the dark and slippy floor. Turn it up, Mr. DJ. Thank u.

"Low"—Flo Rida

"Burnin' Up"—The Jonas Brothers (duh!)

"Teenage Dream"—Katy Perry

"Baby"—Justin Bieber

"Impossible"—Shontelle

"Party in the USA"—Miley Cyrus

"Who Says"—Selena Gomez

4. "Gen Y Baby"

At least I think that's what they call us these days, don't quote me on it!!

"Generation Why"—Conan Gray

"17"—Youth Lagoon

"still feel."—half*alive

"Stuck"—The Aces

"Reflections"—MisterWives

"Uma"—Panama Wedding

"Loving is Easy"—Rex Orange County



I forgot to include him in any of these tiny mini playlists, but Jack Johnson is a staple in the summertime!! Actually, that's a lie. He's a staple anytime.

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.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

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.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
