Summer is finally here and the perfect time to discover new music. If you are a band lover like me then this is a list for you and most likely, you will fall in love with these bands.

1. Nothing But Thieves

This five-piece alternative rock band from Essex, England is guaranteed to give you eargasm after eargasm when you are listening to their debut, self-titled album. The band has been compared to Foals, The Neighbourhood, and Civil Twilight. Their sound is hard alternative, mixed with melodic and dark-like elements, but this band is far from depressing.

Highlight tracks: "Excuse Me", "Trip Switch", "Itch" and "Graveyard Whistling".

2. Kaleo

Blues-rock mixed with today’s alternative never sounded so good. You can thank Kaleo for that. The Icelandic band is a breath of fresh air and their debut album, A/B, needs to be part of your must hear albums of the summer. Their music has been featured in many shows such as Suits and even in the season 4 trailer of Orange is the New Black. Their song “No Good” was also featured on the HBO series Vinyl. Their album A/B will be released June 10.

Highlight tracks: "No Good", "Way Down We Go", "All The Pretty Girls" and "I Can’t Go On Without You".

3. Moose Blood

For all you fans of the Pop Punk music scene, Moose Blood will definitely be one of your new favorite bands. They are British Emo band that has been recognized on Billboard’s New Music Friday with their song “Honey”. These guys will be heading out on tour starting in July. Their album Blush will be released on August 5th, 2016, which you can also Pre-Order now on iTunes and MerchNow.

Highlight Tracks: "Honey", "Knuckles", "Gum" and "Swim Down".

4. The Hunna

This up and coming four-piece indie band is perfect for anyone who likes British indie bands. According to their biography on Billboard, they teamed up with producer Tim Larcombe, who also worked with Lana Del Rey and Hasley. Their songs are catchy and similar to the band Coasts, who they actually toured with before. We’re definitely keeping our ears open for this band.

Highlight Tracks: "We Could Be", "Bonfire", "You & Me" and "Still Got Blood".

5. The Strokes

Yes, that’s right! Although they’ve been around for awhile, they are releasing new music. On June 3, 2015, The Strokes released their first EP since 2013, entitled Future Present Past. The New York based band is coming back into the music scene with new and old fans. They are definitely band you want to listen to starting with their early work leading up to the new EP.

Highlight Tracks: "Reptilia", "Last Nite", "Drag Queen" and "All The Time".

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.

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.
