It's a hot girls summer for sure, but you can't truly live it up without your people by your side. Keep in touch with the ones in your life that make you feel your greatest, your happiest, and the most "you" version of yourself- there's no point in wasting these next few months with people who don't want to see you glowing.

It's time to make a move. Whether it be on the person you've been crushing on, the job that you desperately need to pay for your summer activities, or a change to your appearance that you've been debating for awhile, it's time to take charge and take a chance. You'll be happier for it and honestly what's the worst that can happen? Just go for it! You'll be glad you did.

Embrace Your Beauty

Darlin', you're stunning. There's no question about it. Even on the days you don't feel your best, even if you're struggling to accept certain aspects of your beauty, you are still beautiful. It's time you start taking some pride in it! Show off your figure, let those freckles have a chance to shine, let your eyes captivate anyone who sees them. Draw some attention to the parts of you that you love and you'll not only feel incredibly confident, but the parts of you that you aren't too fond of won't bother you much at all anymore.

Block Him Already

You don't need his drama, girl. His wishy-washy behavior is only dragging you down, and this summer is for elevating ourselves. If he hasn't realized how great you are by now, let him regret missing out on you and all you have to offer. This is your time to thrive, not lose yourself in a guy that doesn't care. Take out that phone and block him... see, I bet you feel happier already.

Soak Up The Sunshine

Don't sit around all day and waste the summer like many of us are prone to do. Get up, get moving! Make coffee dates with friends, make day trips to the beach, go downtown and dance the night away. Sure, give yourself time to rest and relax, but don't make it a habit to sit around and do absolutely nothing all summer long. You'll feel sorry for yourself later on.

This summer is the time to be your happiest self. It's the time to feel yourself, to fall in love with who you are, and to make some memories that will stick with you forever. Make this summer count and live it up. These tips won't do you wrong.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
