You Deserve This Endless Summer

We all come home as summer rolls around. Come back with new plans and ideas to make it the best summer we have ever had. Once we arrive we begin to see that things have changed. Places, people, routines, and us. We have changed in so many ways, we had new experiences through our school year, learning to live and love the college lifestyle while trying to hold on to what we have left back in our hometowns.

Everything seems weird, the people and the places you enjoyed going with them to. We came back ready to dive into all the endless places for summer fun and realize that plans change. We find ourselves confused about what really changed and it's us. We have grown so much and new things and people interests us. But don't you fret! Do not sulk in this summer sadness as the brilliant Lana Del Rey would say. Let's face it: the truth hurts, but we have the opportunity to make this the best summer in our lives. Sounds cliche? Oh well, it's true so let's find that light and shine through this hot summer!

It's okay if your old friends are not interested in the things you are into. That just means you're going to have to fly solo for a bit! Look up to the older role models in your life. Chit chat with them see what ideas they have for you. No one said you couldn't do this on your own.

So, be Miss or Mr. Independent this summer. Take yourself to the beach and soak up some rays. I bet you will find someone at the beach doing just the same as you. Be that social butterfly and spark up a conversation! That's how you meet people, right? You speak to them, learn about their passions and listen to their funny stories from the past. There is always something or someone to learn about. Open up that heart of yours and allow all the love and light to flow through this summer.

We all feel a little lost in the summer, but sometimes we have to get lost to find ourselves. Remember once you start doing the thing you enjoy everything else will fall into place. You will begin to meet people who share the same love for the things you do. You just have to take yourself there. So go catch that summer sun and never let go of it!

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
