5 Taylor Swift "reputation" Lyrics Every Millennial Girl NEEDS To Hear, Fan Or Not

"They're burning all the witches even if you aren't one."

Whether you like Taylor Swift or not, there is no denying that her music makes a statement.

I have followed Taylor from her debut album all the way through reputation, and I must say that while I am always down for jamming to “Fearless”, "reputation" has stolen my heart and her lyrical genius has shown again.

Here are 5 lyrics from “reputation” that every girl needs to hear:

1. “I recall late November holding my breath, slowly I said, ‘you don’t need to save me, but would you run away with me?’” -Call It What You Want

This might be my favorite just because you can see how much Taylor has grown. From “Fearless” when she literally asks Romeo to save her, (Love Story), to now, she has realized she doesn’t need a guy to save her. She just needs him to run away WITH her, while she saves herself. She has grown as a woman and artist, and this is a good example for all of us. We may have related to “Love Story” hardcore, but now we can move onto the “Call It What You Want” mood- we’re badass women who can take care of ourselves, all we need is that boy to walk alongside us as equals.

2. “Please don’t ever become a stranger, whose laugh I could recognize anywhere” -New Year’s Day

Without a doubt I can say that every girl had someone in mind hearing this line. We all have that one person who will always have a piece of our hearts, and no matter how long we go without seeing them, the sound of their laugh will always be the most beautiful sound to us. The thought of this person becoming a stranger is enough to send us into full-blown panic. Taylor knew what she was doing when she wrote this line, it makes us all the more thankful for that one person. If you haven’t already, listen to this song and go tell that person you love them (throw in a joke just to hear that laugh too).

3. “My castle crumbled overnight, I brought a knife to a gunfight, they took the crown but it’s all right” -Call It What You Want

We all know this feeling, when the world seems like it’s against us. No matter what we do, we feel like it’s wrong and our world is crashing down around us. But, no matter how bad things might seem, it is really OK. Other people do not matter, it’s as simple as that. The people who are waiting for us to fall, to take our crown from us, they do not matter one bit. It’s all about the people who are there waiting to pick you back up. So, no matter how unprepared you might feel, and no matter how hard things may be, it’s completely okay.

4. “Don’t blame me, love made me crazy. If it doesn’t you [aren’t] doing it right” -Don’t Blame Me

My favorite song from this album, which might tell you a little bit too much about me. Love can be so consuming, but honestly, it’s okay. If you don’t feel head over heels in love for the man you are with, it isn’t right. You should never settle for anything less than real, deep, love. That to me seems so self explanatory- call me crazy if you want, but I’m not going to apologize for relating to this completely.

5. “They’re burning all the witches even if you aren’t one, so light me up” -I Did Something Bad

In all honesty, people can be the absolute worst. For some reason, other people will always feel like they have a say in your life, as if it’s their right to critique or judge you. I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve realized people will insert themselves that have nothing to do with them, and you just have to roll with it. Regardless of what people say or how badly they judge you, keep moving forward and take it in stride. You’re above them, anyways.

Overall, “reputation” has proven to be T Swift’s most controversial album yet and I’m all for it. If I could quote every line from her new album, I would, but these 5 seemed the most important to me and I think every girl could use those as life mottos.

19 Reasons French Bulldogs Are Scientifically Proven To Be The Best Kind Of Dogs

Because they are the best dogs.


Now I may be biased, but I believe that French Bulldogs are just simply the best.

Not only are they super cute but they definitely have a unique personality.

That being said, here are 19 things that every French Bulldog owner has experienced:

1. Having to explain to people that you have a pig as a pet that’s not really a pig


2. Having to explain to people that it is also a mouse


3. Having to explain to people that it is also a bat


Those ears are just too cute!

4.  Having to deal with the strange looks people give you when you say that


5. Having to clean your Frenchie’s wrinkles


Gotta keep 'em clean!

6. Struggling to choose just one outfit to buy them when you go to the store


7.  Trying to sleep but their snoring keeps you up


8. But then you get used to their snoring and miss it when you don’t hear it


9. Laughing at that little hop they do when they get excited


10. Laughing at their butt just wiggling when they get excited, since they don’t have a tail


11. Having everyone coo at your Frenchie when you walk it


12.  Having a need to buy another one


They are like potato chips, you cant just have just one.

13. Occasionally hearing a random snorting sound out of the blue


14. Being protective over your Frenchie


They would never bite up your shoe! How dare someone assume that. Some other dog probably did it.

15. Taking 1,000s of pictures and videos of your Frenchie and then sending them to people

Taking pictures

16. Missing your Frenchie when you go away on vacation

Miss dog

17. Having to turn back on a walk after 1 block  in the summer because they get hot easily


They are not lazy. They just can't go that far!

18. Not being able to leave food anywhere on a low level surface


They are little vacuum cleaners.

19. Falling in love more and more every day with your wrinkly little baby

My AP Environmental Science Class' Cookie Mining Experiment Shows Why Capitalism Is Destroying The Planet

Who cares about the environment with profits this high?


With the AP exams in May approaching quickly, my AP Environmental Science class has wasted no time in jumping right into labs. To demonstrate the damage to the environment done by strip mining, we were instructed to remove the chocolate chips from cookies.

The experiment in itself was rather simple. We profited from fully or partially extracted chips ($8 for a full piece and $4 for a partial) and lost from buying tools, using time and area and incurring fines.

This might seem simplistic, but it showcased the nature of disastrous fossil fuel companies.

We were fined a $1 per minute we spent mining. It cost $4 per tool we bought (either tweezers or paper clips) and 50 cents for every square centimeter of cookie we mined.

Despite the seemingly overbearing charges compared to the sole way to profit, it was actually really easy to profit.

If we found even a partial chocolate chip per minute, that's $3 profit or utilization elsewhere. Tools were an investment that could be made up each with a partial chip, and clearly we were able to find much, much more than just one partial chip per tool.

Perhaps the most disproportionally easiest thing to get around were the fines. We were liable to be fined for habitat destruction, dangerous mining conditions with faulty tools, clutter, mess and noise level. No one in the class got fined for noise level nor faulty tools, but we got hit with habitat destruction and clutter, both of which added up to a mere $6.

We managed to avoid higher fines by deceiving our teacher by pushing together the broken cookie landscapes and swiping away the majority of our mess before being examined for fining purposes. This was amidst all of our cookies being broken into at least three portions.

After finding many, many chips, despite the costs of mining, we profited over $100. We earned a Franklin for destroying our sugary environment.

We weren't even the worst group.

It was kind of funny the situations other groups simulated to their cookies. We were meant to represent strip mining, but one group decided to represent mountaintop removal. Mountaintop removal is where companies go to extract resources from the tops of mountains via explosions to literally blow the tops off. This group did this by literally pulverizing their cookies to bits and pieces with their fists.

They incurred the maximum fine of $45. They didn't profit $100, however.

They profited over $500 dollars.

In the context of our environmental science class, these situations were anywhere from funny to satisfying. In the context of the real world, however, the consequences are devastating our environment.

Without even mentioning the current trajectory we're on approaching a near irreversible global temperature increase even if we took drastic measures this moment, mining and fracking is literally destroying ecosystems.

We think of earthquakes as creating mass amounts of sudden movement and unholy deep trenches as they fracture our crust. With dangerous mining habits, we do this ourselves.

Bigger companies not even related to mining end up destroying the planet and even hundreds of thousands of lives. ExxonMobil, BP? Still thriving in business after serial oil spills over the course of their operation. Purdue Pharma, the company who has misled the medical community for decades about the effects of OxyContin and its potential for abuse, is still running and ruining multitudes more lives every single day.

Did these companies receive fines? Yes.

But their business model is too profitable to make the fines have just about any effect upon their operation.

In our cookie mining simulation, we found that completely obliterating the landscape was much more profitable than being careful and walking on eggshells around the laws. Large, too-big-to-fail companies have held the future of our planet in their greedy paws and have likewise pulverized our environment, soon enough to be unable to return from.
