Don't Talk To Me About Celebrities, Unless It's Billie Eilish

Seriously, there are no exceptions...except for maybe Khalid.

Don't Talk To Me About Celebrities, Unless It's Billie Eilish

I've never been a fangirl of any band or celebrity. I've never understood the obsessions some people form, from 1D to the Bieber era to the Kardashians and beyond, I've yet to hop on any of those bandwagons.

It's not that I don't appreciate a lot of the things celebrities do, especially when it comes to artists. I have such a passion for music, but my passion ends right there- at the music. I don't feel it necessary to spend time watching over the lives people I will most likely never meet, because I barely have time to keep track of myself.

Around 2 years ago, a song popped up on my Spotify discover that I hadn't heard before, and it became one of my favorites of all time. I threw 'Ocean Eyes' into all of my playlists, and didn't think much more of it. Soon after, more songs by Billie began surfacing, and I took notice. Any artist that produces song after song that I love is so rare, and I didn't even know anything about her at this point.

I had never heard a voice that could hit literally every note, sounding angelic and powerful in a completely unique way. Little did I know, that her vocal talent was only one of the many things that made her stand in an era of her own.

This girl is 16 years old, and she is taking the world by storm by her unwillingness to abide by any social standards.

Her talent is unmatched, and so is her personal style. Every public appearance she makes has me in happy tears. She puts on a show for everybody who looks, wearing the most individualized, "her" clothes possible. It's almost like a street version of Lady Gaga mixed with the confidence of Kanye (you're welcome Kanye. That's the best compliment you could receive). Her Instagram is filled with her wild style and glimpses behind the scenes of her music videos- flaunting that young 'wherearetheavocado's handle with an anime pic.

Basically, in the words of Barney from HIMYM, Billie is the definition of legendary.

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.
