After many stressful months, summer is finally here and we couldn't be happier. This is our opportunity to finally sit back, relax, and enjoy some time away from the classroom. No more homework, no more 8 a.m. classes, and no more studying. Typically, summer is a time spent at the beach, or on vacation, or (if you're anything like me) working tiresome hours. But who says that's the only way to spend your summer vacation? We suggest a little trip (or two, or three, or four) to the movie theater. There are some big films being released this summer that you just have to see.


Star Trek Beyond - Set to be released in theaters on Friday July 22, 2016, directed by Justin Lin. In the third installment of Paramount's rebooted Star Trek franchise, Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine), Commander Spock (Zachary Quinto), Lieutenant Nyota Uhura (Zoe Saldana), and the rest of the Enterprise crew face an alien threat.


X-Men: Apocalypse - Set to be released in theaters on Friday May 27, 2016, Bryan Singer. In the ninth installment of the X-Men film series, we learn of Apocalypse; the first and most powerful mutant in the X-Men universe. Apocalypse awakens, disillusioned, after thousands of years and recruits a team of young x-men, including Magneto (Michael Fassbender). Raven (Jennifer Lawerence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) lead the team to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind. [Featuring Evan Peters as Quicksilver.]


Finding Dory - Set to be released in theaters on Friday June 17, 2016, directed by Andrew Stanton. In this friendly welcome back to the big screen, we find Dory (voice of Ellen Degeneres) residing in the reef along with Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks). Dory remembers she has a family out there that might be looking for her and they set off on a life changing journey. The trio endures quite the adventure across the ocean in an effort to find Dory's mom.


Now You See Me 2 - Set to be released in theaters on Friday June 10, 2016, directed by Jon Chu. The four horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, and Lizzy Caplan [taking the place of Isla Fisher]) are back at it again with another mind-bending adventure. With this comeback performance, they hope to expose the unethical practices of a tech magnate. Can their latest unprecedented stunt clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all? [Also featuring Daniel Radcliffe as Walter Mabry.]


Suicide Squad - Set to be released in theaters on Friday August 5, 2016, directed by David Ayer. An interesting mix of super-villains (Deadshot [Will Smith], King Shark [], Captain Boomerang [Jai Courtney], and Harley Quinn [Margot Robbie]) are recruited for a mission deemed too dangerous for superheroes. They must set their personal conflicts aside and combine their efforts to accomplish their duties. [Also featuring Jared Leto as the Joker and Ben Affleck as Batman.]


With all of these captivating new films coming out over the next few months, it's going to be hard to stay away from the movie theater! Take this time to take a step back from your school work and recharge for the fall. You know what? You should treat yourself. Go twice. (We promise, we won't tell!)

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.
