It's time to update your playlist for spring. I selected 10 artists and my favorite songs from them. This playlist mix includes upcoming artists, familiar artists with a new album and headliners. These songs are a great kickoff to spring and festival season.
After my stand-up comedy set, everything I had ever watched on shows like Parks and Recreation and 30 Rock made sense and now, I'm striving to improve.
I read and read, and re-read again for clarity; my eyes were slowly adjusting to the hard and truthful fact that I was staring at an early acceptance letter from Smith College
I hear many adults who are much older than I am complain about my generation. They say that young people, those about to enter the work force for the first time, are the most spoiled and entitled generation in this country's history. I happen to agree.
I believe that young girls need to learn how to perceive and react to social media, pop culture and entertainment in a more positive way. This isn't taught in schools, and I highly doubt that our parents can honestly understand social media to understand its effects.
Being a teenager has been my life for the last six years and I lost myself in the Neverland that is the teenage years. Then I realized, I'm becoming an adult and there's no Peter Pan to save me.

When you feel passionately about someone or something, it's only natural to feel that passion reignited by their presence. When I saw James Franco, I was reminded that, for being a celebrity, he is human.

Will the real activists please stand up? In a social-media crazed society, insignificant measures are seen as influential. A mere "RT" on a Twitter post, "like" on a Facebook status or "tag" on an Instagram photo has become the mechanism to create change.
We all feel stressed getting ready for any big occasion, so take care of a few things early and prep a week ahead of time.
In case you're thinking, "I'm in high school, I could never do that," what if I told you that you were wrong, and that you can build an app?
Well, not really. I'm still a senior in high school, but I have finally gotten off the roller coaster of applying to college that I boarded as an apprehensive, but ambitious, junior. But, having finished this process, I find that I have more questions than answers.
Social networking was changing my views on Coachella and those views were rubbing me the wrong way. It was starting to feel that if you're a super cool person and if you're a somebody, you're at Coachella. I didn't like that one bit.
In our hyper-connected world, people have grown accustomed to getting answers immediately. My generation has grown up with the mindset that if you have a question, just ask Google. We tend to take the wealth of information online for granted. At least, I used to.
