If you're like me, you HATE the majority of the songs on the radio. So, with the help of Spotify, I have been working to curate the perfect summer playlist. While it is still ever-growing, here are a few songs that are currently on my 2018 summer playlist:

1. La Luz by Coastal and Jackie Mendoza

Spotify

This song's bass and vocals is bound to get you moving. It's currently my dancing-in-the-shower song.

2. Biking by Krsraga

Spotify

This song is the perfect song for sitting around with friends on a late night.

3. Sum of My Cares by The Long Faces

Spotify

With such a jazzy feel, I love listening to this song with my windows rolled down when I'm running errands around town.

4. Cold Air by Fyfe

Spotify

This song is on the shorter side at 2:55, but it's still a bop!

5. Moments by JABS

Spotify

The guitar in this song gives such a beachy vibe that it's a must listen when you've got your toes in the sand.

6. Night Ride by The Growlers

Spotify

The chorus in this song is bound to get stuck in your head when lounging around your house.

7. Holiest by Glass Animals and Tei Shi

Spotify

This is my favorite song at the moment. It's my go-to song when I'm coming back from work late at night. It seems to take me to a different headspace, one where I'm hopelessly in love with some sultry stranger.

8. Being No One, Going Nowhere by STRFKR

Spotify

This is the perfect song for driving down empty roads on summer nights.

9. What's Your Secret by Jasper Bones

Spotify

THE perfect bubble bath/relaxing/you-day song. This song always calms me down. I can honestly listen to this song on repeat for hours.

10. Piledriver Waltz by Arctic Monkeys

Spotify

Every time I listen to this song, I feel like I'm in a movie and this is the soundtrack that plays in the background (am I the only one that does that?) Also a great song to listen to while lounging by the pool.

11. Swimming by Lunar Vacation

Spotify

This is a song to listen to when your summer crush breaks your heart, or anything of the sort happens. Even with the sunny weather, everyone needs a good sad song they can mope to every now and then.

12. Petals by Bibio

Spotify

This is the newest song I recently started to listen to. Yet another great song to listen to wrapped in a blanket, sipping tea or coffee, listening to the rain pelt the windowsill on a particularly wet day.

13. The Reservoir by Small Forward

Spotify

Here's a great coffee-in-the-morning type song--if you're up before the temperature hits eighty!

14. Colored Emotions by Night Moves

Spotify

For those lucky enough to have a screened-in porch, this is the song to unwind to after dinner while listening to the cicadas.

15. Runaway (U & I) - Yacht Club Remix by Galantis

Spotify

Are you on the way to a concert/music festival and want to be pumped up? This is the song for you! I think it is physically impossible not to dance to this song.

16. Million Miles Away by Washed Out

Spotify

This is such a lovely song for if you find yourself around a city.

17. Make Me Your Queen by Declan McKenna

Spotify

This uber cute song is perfect for when you find yourself relaxing by the lake with close friends or family.

18. Headphones by Walk the Moon

Spotify

Need a song that you can head-bang to? This is the one. Nic Petricca's vocals and insane guitar riffs are killer and will definitely get you bobbing your head.

19. King of the Clouds by Panic! at the Disco

Spotify

This song is from Panic!'s new album "Pray for the Wicked" and, like all of their songs on this album, this one is destined to be added to your playlist

20. I Fall in Love Too Easily by Caleb Belkin

Spotify

This song mixes my two favorite things: Chet Baker's velvet voice and a modern beat. I love when people find ways to fuse the old with the new, and this song is the perfect example of that.

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.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
