The world is your oyster, girl! Go out and conquer it, while keeping these few tips in mind.

1. Don’t go to the gas station alone.

It’s always smart to bring someone with you in the event that you need to pump gas at night. People can be sketchy, especially at night. Don’t put yourself in a possibly dangerous situation.

2. Wash the makeup off your face BEFORE you shower.

Say good bye to black mascara smears! Washing away any makeup, sweat, and dirt on your face before a shower is definitely something that everyone should incorporate into their routine.

3. Don’t pop your pimples.

It's like zits practically scream at you until you pay some kind of attention to them. I promise, it is so much better to leave them alone. Just dab some spot healing treatment if you really want to address the issue. If you end up poking a zit, make sure the spot is always moisturized to promote healing.

4. Surround yourself with good people.

You would be surprised at how strongly friends can affect you and the way that you make decisions. It is important to make sure that you are surrounded by people who help create a positive and constructive environment.

5. Carry pepper spray at all times.

If you ever catch yourself in an emergency situation, pepper spray will come in handy. Most of them come on keychains to make it super accessible when you need to use it.

6. Guard your heart.

Don't let just anyone sweep you off your feet. Make sure that whoever enters your life is not just there for one thing before they leave. Protecting yourself from heartache is worth the effort it takes. Remember, never settle.

7. Learn how to budget.

It is important to know what you make and what you need to set aside for bills, a savings account, and other expenses that life throws at you.

8. Don’t overdo the drinking.

There is so much more you can do on a weekend rather than be drunk for more than half of it. Besides a terrible headache and sensitive stomach, too much drinking can lead to all kinds of health problems.

9. Find time for yourself.

“Me time" is the best time. Make sure that there is room for some R&R, because you deserve it, after all.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
