1. You have 2 Playlists: One for When You Drive alone and One when You're Driving With Friends

Personally, mine playlist for my friends is called "Social Driving," and it includes some soundtracks of Disney movies, the pop songs I knew when I was in sixth grade, and twenty-one Pilots.

"Forget You" or "Price Tag," anyone?

2. It's not that you don't like "modern" or "mainstream" music.

You just don't prefer it. I can sing some of the Top 100 with the best of them, but when I listen to music, I don't usually listen to what's on the radio.

I don't pretend to be one of those hipsters with a vendetta against "the mainstream," but I don't really like it.

3. You don't have a particular genre you only like.

I like a bunch of different genres, and I don't particularly have one genre I like. I listen to soft classic rock, folk, a little country, pop classics, whatever John Mayer is this album, and sometimes alt pop depending on my mood. Really if it appeals to me, it's on my playlist.

4. You like artists based on their musicality, message, or sound not necessarily where they rank on the popular charts.

Good music is good music. Period.

5. But that doesn't mean you don't like some popular artists though.

Disclaimer: most of my favorites are older popular artists though.

Once again, good music is good music. I love John Mayer, the Beatles, and Johnny Cash. The Lumineers and The Killers are pretty great too.

6. You (probably) love older music.

Most of my favorite artists got started in the industry decades upon decades ago. I've been on a huge Johnny Cash kick recently, have always loved John Denver, and appreciate James Taylor. I can rock out to some of the Stones, and enjoy a good Eagles' song every once and awhile.

My taste in music fits with the older crowd more so than people my own age.

6. Your specific taste might have a weird name.

Alt-country, psychedelic folk, fingerstyle, or vintage swoon, whatever you like

Personally, my taste really fits under the title of "Americana."

7. You don't get passed the AUX chord. Ever.

8. A lot of the time you like songs, but not everything the artist puts out. Or you've just listened to that song not the artist.

Just because you usually like the artist doesn't mean that every song is a winner, but you really get into the songs you like.

For example, I have listened to next to nothing by The Monkees, but "Me & Magdalena" is one of my favorites songs.

9. People don't usually ask for your opinion on music.

When people are asking for suggestions about what to listen to, they normally aren't looking for suggestions like Rayland Baxter, Mandolin Orange, or Brent Cobb.

10. You don't usually ask for other people's opinions either though.

I'm glad you love T. Swift and everything Drake puts out. Everyone is entitled to their own tastes (I mean this is what this whole article is about), but when you'd say "Thanks but no thanks," you really don't ask.

11. Spotify is your best friend.

One of the best decisions I've made is to be a Premium member, because I can rake through all kinds of new music and artists I never would've been exposed to.


12. You don't really think your taste in music is weird, but it's just easier to describe that way.

To you, it's just good music that you enjoy.

So keep on rocking out to the music you love.

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
