Music tells a story.

17 Songs Dominating My 2017 Playlists Thus Far

Music is the gateway to the unknown. An outlet for people to get away and tap into who they are. Normally, I choose music with a story, based on fandoms, or the sound based on what type of music I am into at the current moment. The fact that music can tell what someone's personality is, is beautiful because music tells a lot about our current emotions and what stage of life we are in. I have composed a list of 17 songs that I have been currently listening to and I just can't stop.

1.) The Judge by Twenty One Pilots

Honestly, if I could, I would have put every single song by Twenty One Pilots but that takes away from the diversity of my playlist. "The Judge" is my personal favorite because I feel like someone is trying to escape from their personal mistakes. I know I can personally relate to this song because sometimes I too would like to be set free.

2.) The Bird and the Worm by The Used

Literally just listened to this the other day, but I love the sound and tempo of the song.

3.) Miss Jackson by Panic! At The Disco

"Miss Jackson" is just one of those catchy songs that you can never let go and even the story is nice to listen to because it is based on a true story about an elusive woman.

4.) Sucker for Pain by Imagine Dragons

"Sucker for Pain" is just one of those songs that you can just be like "this is really kinky, but I like it." If you listen closer to the lyrics during some parts, you get a feeling of fuck the world. As " feeling the world go against us, so we put the world on our shoulders" like the world can't do anything to stop you. Don't want us to do this? Well, f-you because we're going to do it anyway.

5.) Historymaker by Dean Fujioka

Just for the mere fact that I love anime, "Historymaker" is the theme song for the new anime Yuri On Ice. After falling in love with the anime and the way it inspired me, I made my friend make me a CD just to have this song. I probably listen to this first every single morning when driving to campus.

6.) Death of a Bachelor by Panic! At the Disco

You could look at this song in many different ways, my two favorites are the actual death of a bachelor or someone who has found a happy ending with someone but at the expense of losing their single life. Losing the freedom that came with being single but finding a new happiness from being in a relationship. As the song says, "The Death of a Bachelor seems so fitting for a happily ever after."

7.) Fairly Local by Twenty One Pilots

I'm fairly local, I know things you don't. I could end you if I wanted to, you don't notice me. I'm fairly local, I know things you don't. I could save you in times of trouble, I'll try to. I'm fairly local, I know things you don't. I'm trying to change.

8.) Roses by Luke Christopher

I heard this song a few days ago and it is mellow and laid back. Very nice to relax to.

9.) Dear Maria, Count Me In by All Time Low

I was just shown this song the other day and I love it. I haven't gotten to listen to much of the lyrics, but I still recommend.

10.) Welcome To The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance

Oh gosh, Welcome To The Black Parade is an emo anthem. You could go into a crowded place, play just the first few notes, and I bet you half the people there will look up so quickly you're worried about their neck.

11.) Control by Halsey

Control is a song where I have the control. Oh, you're scared? Well, I'm in control. "I'm bigger than this body, I'm colder than this home, I'm meaner than my demons, I'm bigger than these bones." So, yeah, the one who should be scared, is you.

12.) The Farm by Aerosmith

To me anything by Aerosmith is perfect to listen to, but right now I have been listening to their album Nine Lives and this is one of my favorite songs on the album. If you like the sound of a guitar, then you will definitely love this.

13.) You're Welcome by Dwayne Johnson

Ok, how could I not include a Disney song? Right now, Moana is a huge hit and is one of the best movies in my book. Definitely not what I expected, but ten times better!

14.) The Haunting by Set It Off

The Haunting is exactly what it sounds like, a haunting. A boy haunts a girl who has killed him and he tells the girl that she will never find anyone who was as good as him. That he was the best thing to happen to her, though he also does say that if she really does find someone who is better than him he will take back his words and leave her alone, but he finds unlikely.

15.) O'Death by Jen Titus

O'Death is a song I heard from Supernatural and I take the meaning as I went from begging for my life, "O'Death won't you spare me over and ever," to actually becoming Death, "My name is Death and the end is here."

16.) Prisoner by The Pretty Reckless

Prisoner by The Pretty Reckless is one of my sister's favorite songs, as it shows a strength of though I may physically be there, you will never have my mind or me fully. I relate to this personally, because I don't like when people try to emotionally harm me. Especially if it is a person who constantly tries to tear me down.

17.) Greetings From California by The Neighbourhood

I just like this song for the sound and I can thank my younger sister for showing me this because she likes the band.

In all, music is a great way to express yourself and everyone thinks of songs differently. I'm sharing with you the way I look at music and hope that you take the time to listen to each song and think about my views on it. Once you listen to the songs, if you find yourself viewing it in a way different from mine, I would love to hear your take on it, so, please comment what you think.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
