12 Songs To Listen To In The Fall

12 Songs To Listen To In The Fall

I think I've listened to the entire Mazzy Star discography twenty times this week.

I must be the most terrible person to be with from late October to end of March (length varies depending on year) because when I'm cold, all I can think of is the fact that I'm cold and then all I can talk about is how cold I am. It is never ending torture for myself and for everyone around me. The only thing to cure this cycle is by wearing a million layers, drinking way too much coffee and listening to music.

So if you're like me and are always cold and are looking for a way to survive, listen to these glorious tunes.

1. Fade Into You by Mazzy Star

Mazzy Star is the ultimate fall band. If you find yourself intrigued, take a gander at Halah, Take Everything, I've Gotta Stop and okay let's just face it... their entire discography.

2. Linger by The Cranberries

Ahhh.. nothing like it. Dreams is supreme as well, if you're interested. I'm hooked. Please listen.

3. Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home from the Begin Again Soundtrack

Perfect tune to jam to while going on a nice evening stroll bundled up in a blanket scarf.

4. Party Police by Alvvays

I am actually so in love with Alvvays. There is something so blast from the past about them that just makes them seem so new and fresh.

5. Where You Lead by Carole King

Makes me think of Gilmore Girls which makes me think of fall. So there you go. Listen.

6. Honey by Ill Spector

I was a deadbeat
You were so sweet
Like honey

Never heard anything more beautifully sad in my life.

7. There She Goes by The La's

The OG fall song. Nothing gets me more in the fall mood than this song.

8. Space Song by Beach House

I love this song for more reasons than the fact that it ends with the solid words of fall back.

9. Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer

Nothing better than jamming to this song under the comfort of my comforter. Seriously my favorite thing.

10. All Too Well by Taylor Swift

This song is very different from the rest on my list, but it is so necessary. Taylor Swift has songs for every emotion, including one for what it feels like for being cold in the fall and guess what? This is it.

11. Peppermint by Say Lou Lou

Your apartment was my world
The light bulbs were the stars
The fire burned like our hearts

It warms my soul just reading the lyrics.

12. Dog Years by Maggie Rogers

Maggie Rogers soothes me alvvays with the glorious melody of Dog Years.

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

Recovery is Possible But It Doesn't Mean It's Easy

Recovery is trying to fit again.


Being in recovery can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. There is recovery for drug abuse, alcohol, eating disorders, and other illnesses and abuses.

Whether you are just starting out or are 5 years in, recovery is a lifelong commitment.

Now, I know it can seem scary to those who have no idea what recovery is or have never had to recover from something. But you will never truly understand what recovery is like unless you've lived through it. Unless you've had to overcome your own thoughts and rebuild yourself from the ground up.

For me, recovery has been a slow and demanding process. When I first got out of treatment for my eating disorder, I became extremely depressed. I was sick, tired, and didn't want to talk to anyone. I was trying to figure out my purpose and where I belonged all in the few months before I had to go back to school for my third year of college.

Life stops for no one.

I had always had to deal with anxiety and the eating disorder, but now there was this darkness over everything. I had to learn how to live my life without the one thing I had been using to get through each day. Now, I didn't have the empty stomach and controlling thoughts to occupy my time. I had to deal with what I was feeling. I had to deal with the difficult things in my life that I had ignored for so long.

The eating disorder, the obsession, had allowed me to cope with the shitty stuff going on in my life.

I'm not saying all situations are the same, but through my time at treatment, I learned that many of the people that were there because they had traumatic experiences.

Whether its drugs, alcohol or some other form of abuse or obsession- the person is trying to cope with something. It may start as a choice, but it quickly spirals into something out of the person's control.

So, try to imagine recovery. You no longer have that coping mechanism you've had for years; that you are used to having with you at all times, that people are used to you having, that has made surviving possible. Now, it's a world you know, but you are completely different.

All your parts are the same. You have the same skin that bruises in the same way. And the same handwriting that can still ink poetry. But it all gets mixed up somehow. Now, you have to find a way to fit into the world again and each day is just trying to fit.

Maybe it's going out to eat with your friends or going 3 months without a drink or even just getting out of bed.

Trying to find the normal.

Trying to find yourself again.

If you or someone you know is trying to overcome an addiction or past trauma, the strongest thing to do is to speak up and do something about it.
