I swear, I'm not a love poet.

6 Spoken Word Poems That Will Make You Believe In Love

Writers have been trying to put love into several different perspectives. Whether it's a novel format or through sonnets, love has been a topic that writers have been trying to get perfectly right since the beginning of time. One form that I'm particularly fond of is spoken word poetry. Spoken word poetry is kind of like the baby of theatre and writing. A writer goes on stage and recites their work with conviction and emotion. It's truly a beautiful thing to watch, and I think this form of poetry really helps people catch onto poetry even if they weren't particularly interested in it before. For the month of February, I've decided to focus on love poems. So without any further ado, these are my favorite spoken word love poems!

1. When Love Arrives by Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye

This poem is a beautiful duet between Sarah Kay and Phil Kaye. They both talk about their experiences with love, and how it can arrive in the most unexpected of places.

2. How to Love Your Introvert by Kevin Yang

Figuring out introverts can be kind of challenging, but I think Kevin explains this in a pretty beautiful way.

3. Crushes Suck and Everybody Knows It by Dominique Christina

This poem definitely reminds me of my very first crush. Even your first heartbreak can lead to finding the most important love of all: the love you have for yourself.

4. OCD by Neil Hilborn

If you have ever said, "I am so OCD!" please watch this and reconsider your word choice. This poem is not only completely heartbreaking, but Neil Hilborn brings a new perspective to OCD and how it affects relationships.

5. To The Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter by Jesse Parent

This poem is so cute. If you want to read something that will make you smile, please watch this.

6. Love Poem Medley by Rudy Francisco

This is the love poem to end all love poems. Rudy Francisco has been one of my favorite spoken word poets simply because he is so passionate about his words. Each metaphor leaves me in awe, and I hope you like it too!

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.

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.
