With the recent inauguration of President Trump, I was reflecting on President Obama's time in office, and thinking about 2016 in general. Here are 10 songs that perfectly described 2016 for me and probably most college students like me.

1. Sugar We're Going Down- Fall Out Boy

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F17%2F636202674668520681-689733126_sugar-were-going-down.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1008&h=64c5a1355f75c5da59d2da60f6a5d575daedabd7a86c43f6cb694da21e73615a&size=980x&c=309124455 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F17%252F636202674668520681-689733126_sugar-were-going-down.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1008%26h%3D64c5a1355f75c5da59d2da60f6a5d575daedabd7a86c43f6cb694da21e73615a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D309124455%22%7D" expand=1]

School and money and obligations, oh my!

2. Everybody Hurts- R.E.M

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F12%2F636197878267116314503829884_200_s.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=804&h=1ae05e76afee7130992903277df8d5e1982eb0ae80a5eaa7c40fed35c4c423b7&size=980x&c=1967242117 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F12%252F636197878267116314503829884_200_s.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D804%26h%3D1ae05e76afee7130992903277df8d5e1982eb0ae80a5eaa7c40fed35c4c423b7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1967242117%22%7D" expand=1]

This song was written by the drummer of the band, Bill Barry. Barry wanted to let people know that everybody goes through hard times, and (to quote High School Musical) we're all in this together.

3. Highway to Hell - AC/DC

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F01%2F12%2F636197878978580612-1969691846_driving.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=372&h=488a273e7c3f63126f03dcc08170ae8962e35d272d34c092c63c1ff9c8560ec5&size=980x&c=218945866 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F01%252F12%252F636197878978580612-1969691846_driving.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D372%26h%3D488a273e7c3f63126f03dcc08170ae8962e35d272d34c092c63c1ff9c8560ec5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D218945866%22%7D" expand=1]

This song perfectly sums up the election. 2016 is a year we will never forget. A day wouldn't pass where I wouldn't see a Trump bumper sticker, a Hillary sign, or even a "Feel The Bern" t-shirt. The election left the country politically divided, and in the end, we all knew there was going to be a loser.

4. Oh No! - Marina and the Diamonds

"Don't do love, don't do friends, I'm only after success." 2016 might not have been the greatest, but let's make 2017 about YOU.

5. Survivor Destiny's Child

"After all of the darkness and sadness still comes happiness"

6. American Idiot- Green Day

Those times throughout the year that we weren't too proud of...

7. Come Together- The Beatles

2016 seemed divided at times, yet there were times of unity and togetherness which be thankful for. Just think of all we accomplished this year...

8. Bye Bye Bye- NSYNC

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty." But if you're thinking about becoming a defense attorney, it's not this pretty simple.
