10 Of My Favorite Film Scores

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a movie buff. At a certain point I get impatient because I just want to know how it ends. Yet it's no secret that I have a deep love for music. So when I do watch movies, the music is what usually tends to keep my attention.

In my opinion, film scores are completely underrated. The original music that is written for films is so essential, and I tend to pick up on it during every movie I watch. It's what causes the tear to shed from my eye. Or the chuckle that escapes my mouth (and maybe the storyline contributes too, but that's beside the point).

A few of these movies aren't the greatest, I know. But the composers of these scores (and the scores themselves) are fantastic and worth a listen.

I've included my favorite song from each score as a little "test taster" before you decide you want to listen to the rest of the album in its entirety.

1. Copenhagen - Agatha Kaspar

2. Love, Simon - Rob Simonsen

3. Amélie - Yann Tiersen

4. Age of Adaline - Rob Simonsen

5. La La Land - Justin Hurwitz

6. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - John Williams

This one is my ultimate favorite!

7. Breaking Dawn (Pt. 1) - Carter Burwell

8. Edward Scissorhands - Danny Elfman

9. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Pt. 1) -Alexandre Desplat

10. Divergent - Junkie XL

I hope this list has blessed your ears today; and I hope the next time you watch a movie, the score catches your attention!

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university.
