Because music just gets you

11 Songs You Must Listen To Post-Breakup

Breakups are hard, but music can really help you get through it. While sad songs typically can explain exactly how you feel, sometimes that becomes too much. Sometimes, you need to hear a cheery song to boost your mood. Here's a compiled list of all of the songs I find myself listening to after breakups.

1. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" - Taylor Swift

(And pretty much anything else by Taylor Swift, because she is the queen of breakup songs)

This song will make you feel empowered, and you'll definitely be singing along even though you can't reach those high notes.

2. "I Knew You Were Trouble" - Taylor Swift

Of course by Taylor again, because this one will allow you to take all that hurt and hatred and scream it out into song.

3. "Someone Like You" - Adele

Don't even lie. When this song first came on the radio, you listened to it on repeat and wished to have vocals like her. It's more of a sad ballad, but at the same time it comforting.

4. "Battlefield" - Jordin Sparks

Her vocals will make you feel something, I promise.

5. "I Don't F**k With You" - Big Sean

Because in the pit of all the sadness, there's anger. After listening to this and sining/rapping along, pretending like they're right in front of you while doing it, you'll feel 10 times better. Besides, sometimes cussing feels better than crying.

6. "Lips Of An Angel" - Hinder

An obvious classic, and you can actually imagine yourself in the music video while listening to it.

7. "Happy" - Leona Lewis

Her empowering vocals will make you feel empowered as well. You can feel her pain and relate it to yours.

8. "Breakeven" - The Script

"Because when a heart break no it don't break even."

9. "Picture to Burn" - Taylor Swift

Like I said, she's the queen of breakup songs. She always has been and always will be. When I go through breakups, this song is on repeat.

10. "Heartless" - Kanye

Although he's referring to a girl, you can definitely relate it to the dumb guy that dumped you. He's heartless.

11. "Kerosene" - Miranda Lambert

Another empowering, get-all-of-your-anger-out kinda song.

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.
