10 Songs On My Journaling Playlist

Over the past few months, I have begun journaling every night before bed. I first read aloud the current goals I have set for myself, then write down one moment from the day that brought me happiness, and continue to reflect on the entire day and sometimes what life is like at that point in time.

Next, I read aloud things we all crave others to say to us but we should really be saying to ourselves such as "I want to build a loving relationship with you", "you are enough", etc. Finally, I switch to my five-year journal and answer that day's question. It has been a great way for me to connect with myself, strengthen my mental health, and develop a healthy sense of routine.

I, however, am basically incapable of functioning in a silent environment, so I ALWAYS turn on some good tunes to journal along to. Here are ten of my go-to's!

1. 'Turbulence' — Jonah Kagen

Jonah Kagen doesn't have a super-wide catalog but what he does have out there is brilliant and perfect for journaling!

2. 'Let Her Remember' — Peter McPoland

3. 'Lay It on Me' — Vance Joy

4. 'Strawberries' — CAAMP

Seriously, almost any CAAMP song is perfect for journaling or any other feel-good occasion.

5. 'November' — Max Richter

Max Richter is a great artist to turn to if you can't have singing in the background!

6. 'The Blower's Daughter' — Damien Rice

7. 'Woodland' — The Paper Kites

8. 'Somewhere in Ann Arbor' — Anson Seabra

9. 'Pick and Choose' — Daniel Nunnelee

This is a nice, peaceful, and happy piece to play in the background during times of reflection.

10. 'Anchor' — Novo Amor

Honestly, any of the artists above will have plenty of great selections for music to journal to, so if you really like one of them, I definitely recommend going down the rabbit hole!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
