10 Songs That Will Turn Around Even Your Most Tragic Of Days

10 Songs That Will Turn Around Even Your Most Tragic Of Days

Rock it out!

On this disgustingly dreary day in Pennsylvania I feel inspired to share with you the songs that help me get through days such as these. Hopefully you enjoy them and can find a way to relate to them. They will probably be from a mish mash of different genres and time periods so please bear with me.

1. "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" Cyndi Lauper

The perfect tune for after a hard day at work. You can dance to this in your pajamas with a tall glass of wine and pizza to order.

2. "Really Don't Care" Demi Lovato ft. Cher Lloyd

This is a great song for when you're really done with everybody's crap and want them to go lose themselves in 30th Street Terminal and never return.

3. "We Can't Stop" Miley Cyrus

You should totally request this one at the bar on Friday if life has kicked your butt this week. Then you should scream sing it so Wilmington, Delaware can hear you.

4. "Let 'Em Talk" Kesha ft. Eagles of Death Metal

If your name has been in the rumor mill this week, this is the song you need to hear while you casually pass them in the quad and give them the biggest fake smile you can muster to show them you remained unmoved by their stupidity.

5. "Enter Sandman" Metallica

This is a great song for when someone has pulled the final piece out of the Jenga to make it topple and you just wanna blaze down the highway not caring if the cops catch you.

6. "Home" Daughtry

When you need a break from school and are driving back home ready for a mom hug.

7. "Still Breathing" Green Day

Let the beautiful voice of Billie Joe Armstrong remind you that you can keep going forward even when you have a completely crappy day/ week/ month/ year.

8. "Riot" Three Days Grace

When you've thoroughly had it with the week and you feel like the man is trying to oppress you and you wanna go to the gym and beat the crap out of a punching bag.

9. "Bodak Yellow" Cardi B

When someone tries to make you feel like you can't compete, remind yourself of what a fierce person you are with this Billboard 100 chart topper.

10. "Team" Iggy Azalea

For when the only person you can rely on is yourself and you need a reminder that you're a frickin' bawse that can jet set on your own.

A Beginner's Guide to Milwaukee Sports

Part I: The Bucks


Being a college student in Milwaukee has its perks, especially for sports fans. Now, while some may have brought their hometown teams to college, others (myself included) may have warmed up to the Cream City teams without knowing much about them. If this is the case for you, then these pointers can help you start enjoying Milwaukee basketball without looking and sounding like a bandwagon fan.

Quick History


Here are some facts about the Bucks that can make you feel more knowledgeable about the franchise:

- They have only won one championship (back in 1971) and have lost one NBA Finals series (1974) (Land of Basketball)

- They have only had one* MVP-caliber player in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (#33) during the 1971, 1972, and 1974 seasons (Land of Basketball)

- Other Notable Players Include: Oscar Robertson (#1), Sidney Moncrief (#4), Jon McGlocklin (#14) and Ray Allen (#34) (Land of Basketball)

*Giannis Antetokounmpo may win the MVP award this year

Gear Up


This one is a bit of a no-brainer. Wearing team's colors or spirit wear is a must, especially if you're going to a game. Most items like hats and t-shirts are perfectly acceptable, and these are great if you're not trying to break the bank. Buying your gear from a sporting goods store will usually be cheaper than buying them from the team store (the main one of which is located in Fiserv Forum). Most online stores like NBA.com, Fanatics, Fansedge, and sometimes even the team's online store will have sales on sports gear, so getting a good deal on team wear is always a plus!

A Word of Caution: Jerseys

All three of these players are not part of the 2018-2019 roster and #77 and #3 have been reused by current players Ersan Ilyasova (#77) and George Hill (#3)


If you're willing to go the extra mile, buying a jersey can really get you into locked in and pumped for the live action. However, it should be kept in mind that official Nike NBA jerseys range from $110-$250, so they definitely are an investment. While there are other options available like the FastBreak jerseys by Fanatics, they are a simpler (still official) knockoff of the Nike jerseys. Also; beware buying sale jerseys. There are usually three reasons why jerseys are ever on sale (aside from a storewide sale): a player is injured, a player doesn't play much and is about to be traded, or a player has been traded. While there is nothing wrong with having the jersey of a player who went on to another team (like Kareem and Allen), you are not exactly going to get brownie points for wearing a Jabari Parker or a Thon Maker jersey anytime soon.

Know The Current Squad
