10 Reasons It's Actually Better To Be Single In The Summer

Well, we've made it through cuffing season, and summer is almost here. Once the sun comes out, it's as if we're a new person. We're soaking in the vitamin D and ready to enjoy all the season has to offer. Time to make way for the hot summer chaos that's headed our way and get ready for a time to remember.

Whether you've been single or are newly single, don't fear, because it's a scientific fact that summer is the best season to be single for... or at least it should be. Now some of you may be heading into the season with the mindset of finding a summer romance, well I'm here to tell you that having a Nicholas Sparks summer has officially been canceled. Tickets can be refunded.

Being "single as a pringle" is out and "single and ready to mingle" is in. Ladies and gentlemen, here are 10 reasons it's better to be single in the summer:

1. Less bullshit.

There is no one to stress about or argue with.

2. You can let your freak flag fly at summer events.

No need to worry about if you need to be on your best behavior.

3. No family holidays to mentally prepare for.

You get a break from the infamous, "So do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?" question from your relatives. No Aunt Helen, I don't.

4. You have more money to spend on yourself.

No pricey date nights, table for one please!

5. You can do things on your own time.

Plan weekend events with your friends or go on that last minute road trip without having to let anyone know.

6. Say hello to casual hookups.

You can hookup with as many people as you want and guess what? You didn't cheat!

7. Single people are more out to play.

There are plenty of fish to choose from.

8. The sexual tension is off the charts.

Let's face it, hot weather = less clothing. Less clothing = increased sexual tension. Buckle up.

9. Summer is when you look and feel your best.

Working out for that summer body has paid off and the tan is real, what's more attractive than that?

10. Most importantly, you can focus on you.

There is nothing better than working on being the best version of you that you can be.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against relationships and I'm not here to tell you that I refuse to be in a relationship in the summer, I'm simply embracing the fact that I'm single and I plan on enjoying every minute of it until someone comes along. That being said, I welcome all challengers.

They say summertime is a game-changer, it's a time where the term "it's all fun and games" really comes to play. So that being said, who's ready to play?

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
