5 Eclectic Bands To Break The Monotony
Jacques Lowe

I don’t know about you, but I love change. I can’t stand doing the same things the same exact way every day, and this includes the music I listen to. I’m constantly on the lookout for bands willing to break out of the norm and stretch the rules to fit their unconventional ways. So if you ever find yourself bored with your music and need something fresh, I hope this list will help you out. The bands below are some of the most unconventional and out-of-the-box artists I know of. So buckle up, sit back, and enjoy!

Twenty One Pilots

Kickin' it off with the most eclectic band I know and love, duo Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of twenty one pilots are the epitome of out-of-the-box; in fact, they went and broke the box. You may have heard their hit singles: "Stressed Out," "Tear In My Heart," or "Ride". However, their music ranges from ukulele tunes ("House of Gold") and piano ballads ("Goner") to spitfire rap ("HeavyDirtySoul") and everything in between.


Husband and wife, Michael and Lisa Gungor are truly artistic in their endeavor to express themselves through music in entirely original ways. Gungor is most famous for their singles, "Beautiful Things" and "I Am Mountain," but if you've ever explored the rest of their music you'll find this band tends to stick to the path less trodden.

Imagine Dragons

Most known for their hit single, "Radioactive," Imagine Dragons likes to routinely break the boundaries of conventional music and this list just wouldn't be complete without them.

Judah And The Lion

Their older music may be more traditional sounding folk-style music, but with their new album, "Folk Hop N' Roll," they've taken on a new kind of genre. Their new music crosses modern techno style music with the traditional folk.

Lindsey Stirling

Another genre-crossing artist and first of her kind, Lindsey Stirling is a dancing, dubstep violinist. Curious? Take a listen. If you like this, then you'd love her new single, "The Arena."

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.
