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.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount.
