10 Songs To Make You Happy Dance

Even though I tend to be a peppy and optimistic person, I still experience days where I'm down and out. When I get all moody and emotional for no reason, I can always count on my favorite "jam sesh" songs to bring me out of my slump. Using music as a tool to bring up my spirits is ridiculously cliche, but the power of music is insanely strong. The major keys and upbeat tempos force me onto my feet if I'm in my room on a rainy afternoon or make me bob my head and grin if I'm driving around. Do I look like an idiot when I get all excited and bubbly by listening to a cheesy song? Probably. Do I give a single crap about how goofy I look? Heck no! The songs in this list always make me feel fabulous after a long day at school and work or after feeling a little blue. They'll be sure to inspire and excite you, I promise!

1. "Let's Go Crazy" - Prince and the Revolution

Aside from it being extremely catchy and fun, the upbeat synthesizers and spunky lyrics make "Let's Go Crazy" the #1 song to make me happy. My favorite version of the song can be found here.

2. "Can't Feel My Face" - The Weeknd

I love to blast this one in the car with my friends while we drive through town at night. "Can't Feel My Face" is a definite jam song that will always get me in a better mood!

3. "Love is Alright Tonite" - Rick Springfield

I've been in love with Rick Springfield since I was 8 years old, and since then, I've loved "Love is Alright Tonite!" It picks up my spirits and never fails to make me dance.

4. "American Girl" - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

If you've never heard "American Girl," you've lived under a rock your entire life. This song is an anthem at Independence Day celebrations and most sports events, and it's a staple for good reasons. It's poppy and has enough guitar to make it rock. "American Girl" will at least make you smile and dance a little!

5. "Partition/Yonce" - Beyonce

SHE SNEEZED ON THE BEAT AND THE BEAT GOT SICKER! How can you not get pumped or feel like a B-A listening to this awesome song??? "Partition" and "Yonce" will be sure to get you in a good mood and make you feel invincible.

6. "I Do What I Love" - Ellie Goulding

It's very likely that many of you haven't heard this song, but it's seriously amazing. "I Do What I Love" rocks and you'll be playing the air drums and scream-singing to it in no time.

7. "Cuckoo" - Lissie

Lissie has flown under the radar for most of her career, but she's got some great songs. One of my favorites is "Cuckoo" because it's lighthearted and simple. It's a good song to jam to with the windows down on a sunny day.

8. "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" - Whitney Houston

Whitney makes everyone happy, so I had to include this song on the list! "I Wanna Dance with Somebody" is a classic happy song and a total hit.

9. "Diane Young" - Vampire Weekend

Dancing to this song is literally the most fun thing in the world to do.

10. "Fool in the Rain" - Led Zeppelin

Not only is this song adorable, but it's really catchy and upbeat. Zeppelin may be famous for rocking hard, but "Fool in the Rain" shows their soft and happy side.

If these aren't some of your go-to songs to chill you out and make you smile, give them a chance! You might end up loving them. No matter what, they're going to make you, or at least your parents, smile and, possibly even, bust a move or two!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
