19 Adele Songs For (Nearly) Every Mood

Long live the Queen.

19 Adele Songs For (Nearly) Every Mood
USA Today

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Adele is Queen of contemporary music. If you happen to disagree, that’s cool, and I understand—but spend 2.5 hours with me and my CDs (yes, I still buy those things) and I will pour my blood, sweat, and tears into trying to convince you otherwise. You see, Adele reigns Queen for two simple reasons: 1) raw talent and 2) a down-to-earth charisma. Her voice is B-I-G, the kind that usually only comes around a few times in a generation and that is sorely lacking from much of popular music today. What makes us connect with this epic voice, though, is Adele’s persona of authenticity. She seems like the woman we want to be friends with, the woman who will listen to our troubles over a bottle of wine or maybe some whiskey, depending on the night. Her songs reflect this, speaking to moments in life most anyone can relate to. But since we may have miles of distance between us, I gift you the following: an index of Adele songs perfect for nearly any mood you might find yourself in.

1. Chasing Pavements

For when… you’re feeling discouraged.

13. When We Were Young

14. Can’t Let Go

For when… you’re still pining over that person you once were, or the one you were once with.

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
