Song of the Summer is probably one of the highest achievements an artist can achieve. It’s just under getting a Grammy and being asked to join Taylor Swift’s squad. And with every summer season comes a plethora of contenders all vying for the coveted title of song of the summer. And it seems Summer ’16 is full of many contestants. All of these songs are perfect for summer. Their fun, dancy, and sexual. And really what more can do you want in a song? So I’ve comprised a list of the best potential songs of the summer. So who will join the ranks of “California Gurls”, “Call Me Maybe”, and “Can’t Feel My Face”? We’ll have to wait till September to find out.
For the past 23 years there’s been nothing I wanted more than having a boyfriend. I know how pathetic that sounds; me pining over some imaginary perfect guy. But I am a romantic at heart. I may be cynical at times but I believe in heart-racing, palm sweating, weak-in-the-knees love. I blame Nicholas Sparks and Disney movies.
However, I have come to the realization that my quest for a boyfriend is kind of pointless. I’ve been focusing all this energy and time trying to find a nice guy to date but I should be focusing on other things. This summer I’ve realized that more than anything I want more friends. Now don’t get it twisted I’m not some friendless loser who stays home all day playing online video games. I have friends; pretty great friends. But like Ariel in my favorite movie The Little Mermaid, I want more. To be more specific I want more gay friends.
Do you want to know a dreadful thought I had the other day? We are about half way through summer. Let’s just let that sink in. There’s only a month and a half of hot weather, short shorts, and topless boys left! I need to have a moment of silence.
Now that summer’s half way done I’ve had time to reflect on how I spent the first half of summer. And to be honest I’ve done absolutely nothing. It pains me to think about the last two months and how completely uneventful it was. Aside from watching the latest season of Orange is The New Black I haven’t really done anything.
