52 Songs To Get You Through The Bad Days

If you're anything like me, you have someone in your life who just seeps optimism, or that happy person in someone else's life might even be you. No matter how much positivity you surround yourself with, bad days still happen to the best of us. These bad days will occur for many different reasons: family troubles, friendship or relationship drama, bad grades, trauma, etc. Whenever these bad days occur and for whatever reason, it is important to practice self care. One thing I like to do in order to get through the bad days is lay on my floor and listen to music. I enjoy listening to both slow and upbeat songs to help myself calm down, recharge, and keep going.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester.
