My Top 10 Albums Of 2018
Preservation Of Moments

So, 2018 was quite a year. Another semester of college completed and luckily I had an amazing soundtrack to keep me sane in the process. Here at the albums dominated my life and defined this year.

1. Jizzy Pearl - All You Is Need Is Soul


Here is the latest solo album from Jizzy Pearl, known for his work in Love/Hate. Let me just say that this album is spectacular. Jizzy's the coolest, to begin with, so it's just awesome in a nutshell. You hear so few truly great metal albums these days, but here's a masterpiece from one of the best.

2. Judas Priest - Firepower


The latest Priest album is absolute firepower. No pun intended. I only heard one song from it before I got to hear the album. My dad and I actually won tickets, and we got my mom one extra ticket so we could see them on the opening night of the tour all in the midst of the winter storms that took place early last year. I got to hear "Firepower", "Lightning Strike" and "Evil Never Dies" live before I even heard the album. It was amazing and certainly an album and time in my life I'll never forget.

3. Panic! At The Disco - Pray For The Wicked


I got into this album when I was studying for college and it was on infinite loop for 3 weeks if not more. I love this album. That's all I can say.

4. Charlie Puth - Voicenotes


This was one of the albums I didn't expect to get into in 2018. I was really interested in hearing this album after I heard "How Long" when it was only a single. So, I stuck to my word, and I heard this album when it came out and I loved it.

5. 5 Seconds Of Summer - Youngblood


This was another album I didn't expect to get into but fell in love with after hearing "Youngblood" when it was only a single.

6. Gin Wigmore - Ivory


My pen pal recommended her to me and I really enjoyed this album. I've listened to "Dirty Mercy" and "Cabrona" endless times. I have to listen to the rest of her catalog, but I'm very pleased with what I've heard so far.

7. Joe Satriani - What Happens Next


This album is excellent!! This was another album we listened to during our winter storm fiasco in 2018. It's a fantastic albums and it has great musicians on it too!!

8. Ghost - Prequelle


I've always heard different music by Ghost, but Prequelle is the first album I can say I loved by them. It's making me reconsider the rest of their catalog. This album is awesome and I love how it moves. It has an awesome pace!! Great stuff.

9. Daron Malakian and Scars On Broadway - Dictator


It's been 10 years since the original Scars On Broadway album was released. I can't even count how many times I've heard this album or even how many times I've heard my dad play drums to this album. I was insanely stoked to hear that the new one was finally coming out after all this time. It's awesome. A modern-day Scars On Broadway, 10 years later and just as fantastic.

10. Grand A.M. - Red


I'll be honest, I didn't listen to this album until today, but I had it on my phone before the end of my last semester. It's really cool and I checked it out off of the artwork and it's excellent!!!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
