The Summer has finally arrived for some, but for others, it is right around the corner. For me it involves summer jobs, taking long rides anywhere, and going to the beach.The Summer is the best time of the year when you can forget and just take the time to live in the moment, rather than living in your textbooks. However, the Summer would not be complete without the ultimate Summer playlist. Here are 10 songs you should definitely consider when making your playlist this summer.

1. "I'm The One" by DJ Khaled ft. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne

DJ Khaled has been taking the world by storm with his hit singles. This song has only been out for a matter of weeks and has already reached the top of the charts. Khaled is known for his amazing collabs, and this song definitely does not disappoint. Both the song and the video with its vibrant sounds have you prepared for the summer. Plus, who doesn't melt at the sight of Ashad Khaled on the cover of the single?



2. "Redbone" by Childish Gambino

Childish Gambino never disappoints with a good summer vibe. His new album did not disappoint and neither does this song. A bit of a slower tune for the summer, Redbone is definitely a song for a long car ride.



3. "Without You" by Sophie Francis

With a unique video, Sophie Francis gives a good Summer vibe for anyone who is independent and knows it. The song encourages people that they don't need anyone to have a good time.


4. "Hey Ma" Pitbull & J-Balvin ft Camila Cabello

Pitbull and J Balvin are no strangers to the Summer. Both Latin rappers are always on the charts, using their Spanish language and unique beats to take the world by storm. The two have now joined forces for a track from the "Fate and Furious" with former Fith Harmony singer Camila Cabello that will have you dancing on the beach all night long.



5. "Good Life" G-Eazy and Kehlani

The "Fate and the Furious" soundtrack needs much more appreciation than it has gotten. This soundtrack has many unforgettable songs, including this one with an interesting duo G-Eazy and Kehlani. These two together make a song you want to listen to for the Summer.


6. "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" by Shawn Mendes

Shawn's sweet voice never disappoints, and neither do his songs. HIs many love ballads attract the hearts of many, including mine. Mendes normally takes a slower route in regards to his music, however, this song is the perfect tempo for the Summer.


7. "Despacito" Remix- Daddy Yanke, Luis Fonsi ft Justin Bieber

As if the original version wasn't great, adding Justin Bieber made this an unforgettable song. The Puerto Rican native has brought us another song to fall in love with.


8. "No Problem" by Chance the Rapper ft Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz

You can never have enough Chance the Rapper in your life. It's just a fact. Despite his album release in 2016, No Problem is an unforgettable song. Put this song on with your squad and there will be nothing but good times.



9. "No Lie" by Sean Paul

Summer is not the same without Sean Paul. This Jamaican rapper never disappoints with his songs that scream Summer upon the first listen.His song No Lie is without a doubt a song for the summer, but his other songs released this year present vibes ready for a day at the beach.



10. "Slide" by Calvin Harris ft. Frank Ocean and Migos

A strange and unpredictable collaboration between the three results in a cool song for the Summer. Frank Ocean's melodic voice present tune to cruise down the highway with the windows down.

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
