10 Sara Bareilles Songs for all of your feels
Sara Bareilles

Ah, Sara Bareilles. My home girl. A wonderfully versatile singer and songwriter, Bareilles has an incredibly diverse repertoire--particularly for when you need to get in touch with your emotions. Check out this list to find a specific song for when ya really need it!

1. Chasing the Sun

Album: The Blessed Unrest

Favorite Lyric: And the gift of my heartbeat sounds like a symphony/played by a cemetery in the center of Queens

When to Listen: If you are ever looking for a great motivator, this song is perfect! It's a great 'Carpe Diem' tune.

2. She Used to Be Mine

Album: What's Inside: Songs from Waitress

Favorite Lyric: She is Messy/But She's Kind

When to Listen: Honestly, this is my go-to cry song. It'll really getcha. It's a song that explores what it's like to lose sight of yourself. (PS: Waitress is an absolutely incredibly musical wow)

3. Little Black Dress

Album: The Blessed Unrest

Favorite Lyric:Get up off my knees and just remember that I am/ More than just somebody's puppet I can/ Find the cord and then I'll cut it I stand/ A pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance

When to Listen: Rough break-up? Just want to get over a boy? Perfect. Break out that little black dress, girl.

4. I Choose You

Album: The Blessed Unrest

Favorite Lyric: Let the sun fade out to a dark sky/ I can't say I'd even notice it was absent/ 'Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

When to Listen: This is such a cute love song--just a nice, feel-good, I-love-love type of song.

5. Between the Lines

Album: Little Voice

Favorite Lyric: Leave unsaid unspoken/ eyes wide shut unopened/ You and me/ Always between the lines

When to Listen: We've all had those 'almost' relationships--and they suck. This song gets it: it may not be a break up when they fizzle out, but they still hurt.

6. Uncharted

Album: Kaleidoscope Heart

Favorite Lyric: Jump start my kaleidoscope heart/ love to watch the colors fade/ They may not make sense/ But they sure as hell made me

When to Listen: Some of life's happiest moments happen when we step out of comfort zones--this song is all about exploring new things!

7. Bright Lights and Cityscapes

Album: Once Upon Another Time

Favorite Lyric: I'm the paper and you're the pen/ You fill me in and you are permanent/ And you'll leave me to dry/ I'm the writer and she's the muse/ And the one that you always choose/

When to Listen: Unrequited love. Ugh: it's painful, it's confusing. It's tough to love someone who loves someone else.

8. A Soft Place to Land

Album: What's Inside: Songs from Waitress

Favorite Lyric: When your breaking point's all that you have/ A dream is a soft place to land

When to Listen: This is top of my list for easy listening. It's a chill, relaxing melody with a nice message.

9. King of Anything

Album: Kaleidoscope Heart

Favorite Lyric: I'm not the one who's lost with no direction/ But you'll never see/ You're so busy making maps with my name on them in all caps/ You got the talking down, just not the listening

When to Listen: LADY. ANTHEM. Ever just want to dismantle the patriarchy? Now's your chance!

10. Red

Album: Careful Confessions

Favorite Lyric: Made my mistakes, and did a few things right/ But it will take what it will take, baby that's life/ You cannot change what you do not own, everybody knows/ But if you live deep and love strong you get pretty damn close/

When to Listen: We all make mistakes, but that's how we learn: this song is all about growing up and making mistakes and becoming better because of it.

I have definitely had my fair share of breakups. I broke up with my high school sweetheart my second semester of college (he was cheating on me), I had a breakup with another guy I thought I was going to marry, and others in between. Regardless of whether you're the one doing the dumping or being dumped, breakups can HURT.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

Reading is a relaxing activity that provides many benefits. Everybody reads books (when they are not watching Netflix, chatting on social media, or making Tik Tok videos) to distract themselves from reality for a while. Many do not realize the positive impact that books have like reducing stress, assisting with sleep, improving cognitively, and strengthening the mind. In honor of National Book Day, there are many great novels that you can read to mark this special holiday. Here are the best ones to check out.

Social media is something many of us have been addicted to (whether we want to believe it or not) since the moment we got it. I remember getting Facebook at 10. Instantly I was hooked. I loved being able to share my life with people, a little too much in my opinion, and I loved being able to see how/what other people were doing all the time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).

Netflix

"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.
