The 9 Best Podcasts To Listen To During Your Commute

My morning commute into Philadelphia has really taught me that any song can get old— and fast. I've turned to podcasts because it's something different every day (and I can learn something new). The best thing about podcasts is that you can choose any topic you're in the mood for and then listen to people talk about it for like an hour... and I love that situation.

Here are my top 9 podcasts for your commute (and no, NPR isn't one of them):

1. "The Skinny Confidential"

My HANDS DOWN FAVORITE. Lauryn Evarts, the creators of "The Skinny Confidential" blog and her husband, Michael Bostick, team up for this podcast to deliver total realness with all the specificity you could ever want and imagine. They discuss topics from health and wellness to sex and to addiction but in a memorable and creative way.

2. "That's So Retrograde"

This is newest to my list of podcasts, but I've already fallen in love with it. These girls are funny and quirky, but also know how to get the information you want across (while making you laugh simultaneously). "That's So Retrograde" covers a wide variety of subjects, but they definitely have a focus on wellness.

3. "Adderall And Compliments"

The best place for an uncensored opinion...and just another one of my fav podcasts that covers almost everything from pop culture to real-life stories to dating and so much more. You can really cover all the bases with this one.

4. "I Love You So Much"

Kenzie Elizabeth knows how to get my morning started for sure! She talks about an array of relevant subjects in a way young people can relate to. If you're struggling with something, looking for reassurance, or seeking a comfort podcast, this is for you.

5. "The Morning Toast"

I love "The Morning Toast" because it's more of a radio show, but has the feel of a podcast. The girls come to you live every weekday morning with their take on the media's hottest gossip and fun stories! You'll laugh, cry, and gasp (maybe all at the same time).

6. "Crime Junkie"

I'm a health and wellness podcast queen—if you couldn't tell yet— but I'm also a sucker for true crime and any podcast where I can kick in my detective skills. "Crime Junkie" keeps your adrenaline running high and the suspense will make your commute feel faster than ever.

7. "Wrinkled Not Dead"

This couple doesn't believe in a mid-life crisis. They've taken their age to the limits and shown the world that you can still be the best version of yourself as you age. It might not directly apply to me now, but it's interesting to hear their take on things as an older couple in the wellness realm.

8. "The Health Code"

Surprise! Another couple's podcast that I adore! Blogger "Sarah's Day" and her husband Kurt are the cutest couple and discuss all things wellness, relationships, and life on their cheeky podcast.

9. "Tiny Meet Gang"

Anyone who knows me knows I've always loved Cody Ko. When Cody and Noel started the TMG podcast, my comedy world turned upside down. They know exactly how to make me laugh and the podcast is perfect when I need to boost my mood before work. They truly have humor like none other.

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.
