10 Songs That'll Take You To A Whole New World
Natalie Burr

Have you ever listened to a song and found yourself lost in its lyrics and rhythms? Here is a list of ten songs that I play when I feel like being brought into another world. So put in your headphones, plug in your twinkly lights, lay down and just listen.

1. "Gooey" by Glass Animals

My favorite lyric: "You just wanna know those peanut butter vibes."

2. "To Build A Home" by The Cinematic Orchestra

My favorite lyric: "By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top. I climbed the tree to see the world."

3. "Car Radio" by Twenty-One Pilots

My favorite lyric: The whole song is freakin' lyrically beautiful. But if I had to choose: "Faith is to be awake and to be awake is for us to think and for us to think is to be alive and I will try with every rhyme to come across like I am dying to let you know you need to try to think."

4. "Bloodflood pt. II" by alt-J

My favorite lyric: "Silent knife, unholy knife. I've fallen for the black outside my window."

5. "Technicolor Beat" by Oh Wonder

My favorite lyric: "I feel safe in the 5am light."

6. "Blue Spotted Tail" by Fleet Foxes

My favorite lyric: "Why is life made only for to end? Why do I do all this waiting then?"

7. "Broadripple is Burning" by Margot and the Nuclear So & So's

My favorite lyric: "And don't fucking move, 'Cause everything you thought you had will go to shit. We've got a lot. Don't you dare forget that."

Note: I prefer the acoustic version.

8. "Work Song" by Hozier

My favorite lyric: "No grave can hold my body down. I'll crawl home to her"

9. "Youth" by Daughter

My favorite lyric: "And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones. 'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone. We're setting fire to our insides for fun. Collecting pictures from a flood that wrecked our home, it was a flood that wrecked this home."

10. "Fall Creek Boys Choir" by James Blake and Bon Iver

My favorite lyric: "Daring on the peak, telling on the teeth. I've been down to the open road. I'll wait for you, you know. And we both end up alone And if only we could have known."

Here's an extra one cause I like you so much...

11. "Warm On A Cold Night" by Honne

My favorite lyric: "And I can’t help but wonder just how we ended up alright. And I love you like no other. And this has never felt so right"

By the way, this is in no particular order. Just enjoy.

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.
