13 Songs To Bring Out Your Inner Edgy Teenager

Throwback to middle school anthems

Middle school was the time for emo/edgy anthems. Now it's 2017, and I'm here to remind all our inner edgy teenagers about songs we used to (and maybe still do) worship.


1. "Welcome To The Black Parade" ~ My Chemical Romance

The best way to start such a list is of course with the song that every edgy teen had (and still has) memorized. MCR may have broken up four years ago, but we'll never forget them.

2. "Scars" ~ Papa Roach

I'm only slightly embarrassed to discuss how many times I've rocked out to this song, and I'm only referring to last week.

3. "Hate Me" ~ Blue October

I first heard this song on the radio in fourth grade, and, for some reason, absolutely fell in love with it. Of course, at the time I was only hearing it on the radio, so it was the censored version. As a fourth grader who didn't know they drop the F-Bomb at some point, I was really confused when my music teacher looked so shocked when I said how much I loved it and knew every word.

4. "Misery Business" ~ Paramore

What teenage girl didn't know all the words to this one? I still remember Rock Band sessions at sleepovers with middle school besties as we all jammed out together.

5. "Thnks fr th Mmrs" ~ Fall Out Boy

Ah, the good ol' days before FOB went on a nine year hiatus and left us all hanging.

6. "Bring Me To Life" ~ Evanescence

Holy crap how did I forget to mention this one until now? I still remember watching the music video for this and being so confused by what was going on.

7. "Caraphernelia" ~ Pierce The Veil

Maybe this one isn't everyone's favorite, but it was my first PTV song so it will always be special to me.

8. "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" ~ Green Day

I don't think there was a single person in my middle school that didn't know this one.

9. "Fat Lip" ~ Sum 41

Okay, I'll be honest - I threw this one in in hopes my friend, Emma, reads this. She definitely gets the prize for knowing all the words and being able to perform the minute it starts playing.

10. "Revenge" ~ Plain White T's

This song may have come out in 2005, but I didn't discover it until my sophomore year of high school. Either way, it quickly became another favorite of mine.

11. "In The End" ~ Linkin Park

Let's be honest - this song was more than just a song. It's now the basis of so many terrible musical puns.

12. "Creep" ~ Radiohead

This is another song I discovered years after it's release (mainly because I wasn't alive in 1993), but it's still one I enjoy today.

13. "Do It Now Remember It Later" ~ Sleeping With Sirens

Ahh, my very first SWS song. I remember hearing this and thinking it was the most badass thing ever to sing about how you'll do whatever you want whenever you want. Yeah, I was an easily impressed child.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

The father-daughter duo co-founded the brand and has since generated a passionate, dedicated community of women.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
