So, you and your significant other broke up. Maybe you got your heart shattered, or maybe you did the heart breaking. Either way, it’s going to hurt. There are a few ways to cope with this. Sitting, crying, and getting over it, or sitting, crying, and getting over it, with the help of Aubrey Drake Graham. Because if you can’t date Drake, he might as well be your therapist, right?

Side note that these songs should be listened to in chronological order, as it is very important in the healing process.

1. Marvin's Room

This song is an obvious choice for your first listen because it’s better to get the tears out now rather than later. You’re trying to grieve a loss here! Even if these lyrics don’t relate, the whole mood of the song is definitely a tearjerker. It’s really a shame Drake isn’t there to wipe those tears. You can pretend, though.

The lyrics, “I know you still think about the times we had,” and “I’m just sayin’ you could do better,” is a great sing along if your ex left you for someone else. You’re not jealous, you’re just…confident that he could do better. A.K.A. you.

2. Doing It Wrong

Ah, another tearjerker. If you were the one that did the unfortunate heart breaking, but still really care for the person, then this is perfect for you.

There’s so many lyrics that are key points in this song, but here are a few of the best.

“When a good thing goes bad it’s not the end of the world, it’s just the end of a world that you had with one girl.” So true. Let that sink in.

“But I need someone different, you know it, we both know it, something’s been missing.” A great line if both of you were just too different for your relationship to move forward.

3. Wednesday Night Interlude (ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR)

Don’t worry, this is the last song that might make you cry. You may start to get over the person slowly, each day either good or bad. But nights where you’re alone with your thoughts are the worst, so you start to feel really lonely.

“Finna get myself together, I’ve been thinkin’ about everything, I don’t know if its because I’m lonely. Lonely on a Wednesday night, girl I’m lonely.”

You don’t know if you miss them or if it’s just because you’re lonely. No more explanation needed. Go ahead and cry.

4. Charged Up

Okay, now you’re really starting to get over them. You’re finally feeling okay again, and no longer sad. Just angry. Why did he do that to you? You’re awesome. He’s missing out. And if you did the heart breaking, you are probably just hyped off the fact that you don’t feel sad about it anymore, and you’re an INDEPENDENT WOMAN! (Or man) P.S...This song is great to blast in your car while driving past your ex's house.

Basically, the whole song has an “angry-pumped up” feel to it, repeating the lyrics “I’m charged up,” a million times. You are. YOU’RE CHARGED UP!

5. Worst Behavior

Time to get out of hibernation. The squad is begging you to come out this weekend, and you’re ready for it. Prior to hitting the town with your ride or dies, this song is the perfect pump up. This song basically repeats the lyrics, “I’m on my worst behavior,” a lot, with added lyrics like, “I’m just flexin, do we look like we stressin’?” and, “always hated the boy but now the boy is the man.” You’re single. You are the man (or woman) now.

This song could also be substituted with the track Big Rings feat. Future, another great song to get you and your "squaaa" amped up.

6. How Bout Now

The final song, as you’re now feeling fully back to yourself, is something you would want to play while you walk into a room full of your exes. Each lyric captures a perfect “revenge,” and “look at me now,” type of feel.

“Remember I deleted all my other girls’ numbers out the phone for you? Remember when you had to take the bar exam I drove in the snow for you? You probably don’t remember half the sh-- I did for you, yeah you ain’t really mess with me way back then girl, how bout now? Cause I’m up right now, and you suck right now.”

Now you probably shouldn’t say these lyrics directly to your ex, especially if you had a calm breakup, but if they really screwed you over after all the good you did for them and broke your heart you have every right to play this while dancing in the mirror.


So, there you go, these are just a few songs that the beautiful and talented Drake can get you through a breakup. Even if the breakup wasn’t ugly, it’s fun to pretend that you’re a badass, even just for a few minutes.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.


7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on

views

I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63

farm2.staticflickr.com

If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb

www.imdb.com

This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires

https://www.hulu.com/

I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)

www.imdb.com

I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
