Whenever I go to the beach, I feeling like there's always one thing I forget! Run down this list and be sure to pack everything necessary for an awesome beach day!

1. The Basics!

Be sure to grab your beach chairs and your beach blankets, towels, a cooler or insulated bag for water and snacks, a beach umbrella, and flip flops or sandals. These items are just obvious when it come to packing up for the beach.

2. Clothing 

When at the beach, the number one necessity is a swimsuit! Be sure to think about your goal for the day with the swimsuit you pick. It could be a tanning type of day or just a day for the water! Comfy clothes are also a must. With the sand and water everywhere, try to stay dry and cozy! Don’t forget an extra change of clothes!

3. Tiny, but necessary!

There are many small things that you may forget to throw in your beach bag, but here's a quick list to double check: sunscreen, sunglasses, lip balm, deodorant, a personal refillable water bottle (STAY HYDRATED), beach hat, and much more!

4. Entertainment 

Some of the items on your list soon just be some little extras to make your beach trip fun. Pack up your speaker, iPod or phone for some music, headphones, a good book. some games such as frisbee, KanJam, Spikeball, and so much more!

5. Food 

Some good, but simple foods to pack for the beach are some sandwiches, chips, and fruit! Although the broadwalk may have food to just buy, it's way easier to just pack up before your go! Don't forget to pack some extra money just in case you're in the mood for some ice cream!

There are always some more items that those may need, but be sure to look over this general list when trying to grab most things your would need for a day at the beach!

How To Stop Being The Toxic Person That You Would Normally Cut Out Of Your Own Life

It's so much easier to pin a problem on someone else than it is to look deep within yourself and take responsibility for the things that you've done. But that's all part of growing up.

I'm sure you've heard it before...

"Cut someone out of your life if they negatively impact your mental health."

"You need to cut off friends, family, anyone that is bad for you and your future."

"You will be so much better off once _____ is gone from your life."

At this point in your life, you've probably cut off one or more people who you believed weren't good for you. You were prioritizing yourself, and that meant letting go of someone, regardless of the memories, bond, and love that you had for them. It was probably difficult, but somewhere down the line, you knew that you did what was best for you. And you stood by that decision.

But how many times have you been the problem?

How many times have you sat down and took the time to analyze a situation, only to come to the conclusion that YOU'RE the one that's messing up? And that if you changed x, y, and z, you could save or help your relationship with your friend, family member, or significant other.

Probably not very often.

It's so much easier to pin a problem on someone else than it is to look deep within yourself and take responsibility for the things that you've done. But that's all part of growing up. At some point, I hope you realize that you weren't so perfect either, after all. And when you do, this is what I want you to think about:

We all go through different phases of our lives, and it's okay to understand and acknowledge that this phase doesn't represent the best version of yourself. Character development isn't a strict upward slope, where you start off being a shitty, underdeveloped, immature person, but then progress into being an angel. There are going to be ups and downs. There are going to be moments where you're really disappointed in yourself, and can't believe that you let yourself slip up to that degree. We all have flaws, we all make mistakes. But also all have so much potential.

As long as you're willing to put in the effort to change (because everyone around you deserves that), then you're on the right track. And I'm proud of you for having the emotional maturity to self reflect and be better. That's the first step.

And the next step is going to involve putting everything you're saying into practice. I can't promise you that it's going to be easy. And I can't promise you that you're going to drastically permanently change overnight. If I did, I would be lying. But what I can promise you is that everything you're going to do will be worth it in the long run. I hope that's enough of a reason to dig deep for a new you.

Everything You Need To Know About The Sudan Crisis- And What You Can Do To Help

Now is not the time to remain silent.

Sudan Military Kills Over 100 Peaceful Protesters | NowThis www.youtube.com

Turmoil is spreading in Sudan as civilians are being massacred left and right, but few are aware of the details leading up to and regarding the calamity. Here is everything you need to know about the crisis in Sudan.

Civilians began to protest against President Omar al-Bashir as his presidency was one of violence and suffering. Under his rule, thousands of villagers were murdered by the government militia in 2003, and millions of Sudanese people were displaced from their homes. While the president was charged with genocide and war crimes, the charges were dropped when the government failed to get support from the UN. Bashir was again arrested in April 2019, after three decades of rule and several large protests.

After his rule came to an end, the people demanded a democracy, and smaller, peaceful protests eventually merged into a mass civil disobedience. Sudanese authorities banned social media and cut internet and mobile data in the capital of Sudan. Recently, soldiers have begun to open fire on crowds of protestors, rape women and men, and beat the protestors that remained on the streets. So far, it is estimated that over 100 people have been killed, 70 raped, and 700 injured. Among these numbers are hundreds of young children.

These people have no access to the outside world, or basic necessities like food and water. Instead of remaining silent and waiting for our country to step in, do your part and 1. Share this article informing others of the crisis 2. Sign this petition demanding the UN investigate this atrocity 3. Donate something to this GoFundMe raising money for Sudanese medical aid. Every share, signature and donation can and will make a difference.
