7 Things Better Than '7 Rings'

Unpopular opinion: "7 Rings" doesn't deserve to be your next bop.

7 Things Better Than '7 Rings'

Real Talk: "7 Rings", while it already is under critique for being "stolen tunes", it definitely doesn't slap as hard as most of Ariana Grande's songs. She can run a mean hook, a mean chorus, but you can't deny that the only thing quality about this song is the beat. Sure, it has danceability, but where's something more meaningful than flaunting all the stuff you can buy.

Sure, you've been through some stuff and you want to come out strong. But, you can write something that isn't about your tattoos that you misspell.

As a matter of fact, I can think of so many things better than this song. Here are a few:

The Polar Vortex


A real thriving force that has caused WVU to cancel for three days, it's really taking care of our roads. And by that I mean, I slid down the hills of Morgantown in my car today. I made it out unscathed, and my car is fine, but I was terrified. The Vortex is definitely easing, but it had more charisma than the people who wrecked thinking they had class today.

My Roommate


As I write this, she is curled up in a blanket, hair in a wrap post-shower, and is waiting for me to find Leap Year illegally so we can watch it. Can't get any more content than that.

The Egg that Broke the Internet


You know that egg that beat out Kylie Jenner for the highest liked photo on Instagram. It's now become a great breakfast omelette. Beat that! (Literally...)

"My Favorite Things" by Julie Andrews


You know, because that's what the entire first verse ripped off. Julie Andrews would be ashamed.

My Liver


Borderline cabin feverish, I've been slipping Bailey's into my hot chocolate, Crown into my coffee, and NyQuil for nap time. It's only a little bit; I promise. Stay warm, friends.

He's a little bamboo named Harry. He's really cold, because, Polar Vortex. But, he's doing very well with the overcast sky.

The Real "7 Things"


"7 Things" > "7 Rings". Hands down. An iconic bop that has surpassed time, "7 Rings" will always ride the coattails of this tune about loving Nick Jonas (way before this old couple found Priyanka and Liam, for you younger readers).

Give me seven good reasons as to why "7 Rings" is a good song. I'll give you thousands more to counter. Thanks for coming to my TedTalk. Have a nice snow day.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
