17 ‘Reputation’ Lyrics For College Girls To Sing Before And After Finals

17 ‘Reputation’ Lyrics For College Girls To Sing Before And After Finals

"I got smarter, I got harder, in the nick of time."

Taylor Swift / Instagram

Taylor Swift's "Reputation" has (unsurprisingly) taken the world by storm. Knowing T.S. and all her past hits, each song is filled with meaningful lyrics that speak right to your soul and are oh-so-relatable. Finals season is fast approaching too, and luckily Taylor is here with some lyrics you can sing to your professor right before the super important need-to-pass final — and after you don't do so well — and for those easy classes that you could sleep through the final and still get an A.

Whatever your finals schedule looks like, or however your professors have been this semester, T.Swizzle is here to get you through it.

1. For when you walk into that final you have no hope for

"All of this silence and patience, pining and anticipation, my hands are shaking from all this ." - Dress

2. For that class you were failing but got an A on the final and passed

"I got smarter, I got harder, in the nick of time" - Look What You Made Me Do

3. For that class you were passing but got an F on the final

"This is why we can't have nice things, darling because you break them." - This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things

4. For the professor and class that ruined your GPA (but you're kind of over it... maybe)

"I forget their names now, I'm so very tame now, Never be the same now" - ...Ready For It?

5. For when you knew you should've studied harder after you get the grade back

"I've made mistakes and I've made choices, that's hard to deny" - End Game

6. For that one professor you can't think about without your head exploding

"And I'm so furious at you for making me feel this way" - Gorgeous

7. For when you're contemplating with your friends just escaping before finals

"I recall late November holdin' my breath, slowly I said, 'You don't need to save me but would you run away with me?'" - Call It What You Want

8. For you and your friends brace yourselves at the start of finals

"I can tell that it's gonna be a long road, I'll be there if you're the toast of the town, babe, or if you strike out and you're crawling home." - New Year's Day

9. For when time is moving too fast and you can't stop finals from happening

"You said there was nothing in the world that you stop it, I had a bad feeling" - Dancing With Our Hands Tied

10. For when you start watching Netflix knowing full well there's a final tomorrow

"They said I did something bad, then why's it feel so good, most fun I ever had." - I Did Something Bad

11. For when your professor killed you, but it's just becoming a semesterly routine

"You did a number on me, but, honestly, baby, who's counting? (1,2,3)" - So It Goes...

12. For when you've been in the library for 72 hours straight

"I've passed days without fun, this endgame is the one" - End Game

13. For when you're watching your GPA slip after your finals

"This ain't for the best, my reputation's never been worse." - Delicate

14. For when you're breaking down in the middle of your test

"I would waste my time, I would lose my mind, They say, 'She's gone too far this time' ." - Don't Blame Me

15. For when you finally leave your last final

"It was the great escape, the prison break, the light of freedom on my face." - Getaway Car

16. For when that one professor doesn't submit grades for weeks after

"And all at once, you are the one I have been waiting for." - King Of My Heart

17. For when you're recapping your semester and putting your professors on your bad list

"I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined, I check it once, then I check it twice, oh!" - Look What You Made Me Do

Thank you, Taylor Swift, for providing us with the inspiration and relatability to get through finals season, even when it'll be super painful at times. We can all get through this together.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
