Top 10 Movies to Kick Off Summer!

Seeing as how my summer has officially begun because my college gets out very, very, very early, I figured I'd get into the spirit by having a movie marathon of different summer classics. Of all the movies I've watched these past few weeks, I've picked my top 10 that will kick off summer, whether you're still in school or not! Here they are...

1. The Parent Trap

Every kid who grew up during this era fell in love with The Parent Trap and may or may not have believed that Lindsay Lohan had a twin. Between Oreos and PB in the Isolation Cabin, and harassing an evil step-mother with creepy crawlies, this classic is the best way to channel those summer vibes.

2. Grown Ups

This is a goofy one that's sure to make you smile, laugh, and feel all warm and cozy inside. The ups and downs of this crazy weekend between old friends on a lake will make you wish it was August.

3. The Sandlot

When I think of summer, I think of the Sandlot. It's a classic, easy as that! I don't think there's a person alive over the age of ten who hasn't seen it or at the very least heard a famous quote from the lovable classic.

4. Wet Hot American Summer

Some have seen it, some haven't, but those who have know that it's fantastic. Following the last day adventures of this wild camp will make you wish you went away to camp as a kid, go watch it!

5. Stand By Me

A good one I hadn't seen until recently, but fell in love with immediately! Follow the story of these friends as they go on the mission of a lifetime and find themselves along the way.

6. The Goonies

This was my all time favorite movie to watch in early summer as a kid, I truly think I know it by heart at this point. Everything about the Goonies is great and brings me back to my childhood days of sitting in front of the TV, doing puzzles and watching this classic.

7. Cheaper By The Dozen 2

The first one was good, but who doesn't love seeing Taylor Lautner as a dashing, young ladies man. Another one that tells the story of two families in competition during labor day weekend, but still, such a funny, feel good movie.

8. Mamma Mia

I'm humming an ABBA tune as I write this, that's how much I love this movie and hope that every good theater kid agrees. Such a fun and lovable movie, especially with the scenery and summer vibes.

9. Footloose

As soon as the song starts, I get up and dance! It's currently on in the background and I'm getting in to the summer spirit more and more, just about everyone knows the song, and almost as many have seen this awesome movie, even if it's been a while!

10. Dirty Dancing

Speaking of dancing, Dirty Dancing is such a summertime classic, but seriously, how did she learn how to dance so well so fast?! I think I've tried and failed at least a dozen times to do the famous lift with different friends over the years. Oh well, we'll leave it up to the movie stars.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
