We all get stuck in a funk at some point in our lives. However, as many people know, music can––and has managed to––pull people out of even the deepest of depressions. There are so many songs out there that can raise you up and make you feel infinitely powerful. But to save you some time, here is a list of 11 such songs.

1. “We Weren’t Born to Follow” by Bon Jovi

Let’s start the list off with this oldie. But seriously, just listening to this song’s lyrics will give you a brand new sense of purpose and confidence.

2. “Scars to Your Beautiful” by Alessia Cara

This is the perfect song for those struggling with insecurities. Not only does the song point out that there is hope for everyone, but it also addresses people who think little of themselves and their appearance.

3. “Anything Could Happen” by Ellie Goulding

The title of this song says it all. And the beat and sound that is paired with it will make you feel as if anything is possible.

4. “Whistle (While You Work It)” by Katy Tiz

This fun, upbeat song will remind you to stay positive no matter what and to ignore anyone who doesn’t believe in you.

5. “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten

“Fight Song” is a commonly used song to overcome depression. Which makes sense, considering the song is about standing up, fighting, and being strong. This is the perfect song for anyone who feels beaten down by life.

6. “Alive” by Sia

Everyone has a story or something that they have struggled with. This song brings to light how it feels to struggle, but it also reminds that you can still continue to live your life and overcome.

7. “Roar” by Katy Perry

Not only will this song boost your confidence in a fun way, but it will also give you a brand new sense of purpose when you listen to the lyrics carefully.

8. “Masterpiece” by Jessie J

This song is about as realistic as it gets, as it explains that you can make mistakes and mess up, and that’s okay because nobody can be perfect. Everyone is a work in progress.

9. “Hall of Fame” by The Script

You can be whoever you want to be and do whatever you want to do as long as you set your mind to it. This song reminds you that if you do set your mind to it, you will ultimately reach your goals and find yourself in the “Hall of Fame”.

10. “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons

This upbeat song is perfect for someone who is looking to create a new start for themselves.

11. “Renegades” by X Ambassadors

Last but not least, this song is a reminder that even those who are seen as underdogs can make a change in the world.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

8 Old Katelyn Tarver Songs You Probably Haven't Heard

None of her new songs will ever go as hard as "Chasing Echoes" and that's a fact.

Years ago, I found (through iTunes recommendations) a pretty cool female artist. Later found out she was on "Big Time Rush", and then I found out she had some new songs out. I decided to give her new songs a listen, and they're good. However, I prefer some of her older stuff, which sadly isn't on Spotify. Fortunately, YouTube exists, and I'm here to share the best ones.


1. "Wonderful Crazy"

This is just a fun, upbeat song for when you're having a good day. Would recommend playing in your car with the windows rolled down.

2. "Rain"

I have a very specific memory of a time when this song blessed my life, but for all intents and purposes, it is a beautiful and happy song.

3. "I'll Make It Real"

This is a beautiful song with a wonderful message about staying true to yourself. I used to listen to it on the way to school every day my senior year of high school.

4. "Something In Me"

Featured in the greatest show of all time, "South of Nowhere" season 1 episode 6. A very relatable breakup mood.

5. "Love Alone"

This is definitely the second-hardest-hitting song she's ever released. The fact that this is not on Spotify or even iTunes anymore is just not fair.

6. "Favorite Girl"

This one's cute and upbeat, a definite crush mood. Not on the same level as "Love Alone", but it's still underrated.

7. "Closer to My Heart"

Another cute love song. I'll tie it with "Everything" for cutest love song on her first album. Highly recommend both.

8. "Chasing Echoes"

Facts are facts and the facts are that Katelyn Tarver's new stuff could never go as hard as "Chasing Echoes". I can't even begin to explain how deeply these lyrics cut through me when I was fifteen. Even now, this song can take me all the way back. She is robbing us by not making this available on streaming services (or even to purchase). Katelyn, bring this song back, I am begging you.

Anyway, I'm still enjoying the new stuff and am excited to see what's next.
