Songs On Odyssey: Burn Baby Burn

Let it all just fade away

Songs On Odyssey: Burn Baby Burn

Here's a song for all those who need to leave behind something that is so unworthy of our stress and our worries and our emotions. Leave behind those negativities because once you empty your pockets of those rocks, you're ready to spread your damn wings and fly!

Burn Baby Burn

I'm waiting for somethin' excitin', yeah I can tell it's gonna be good. You know the sun is electrifying, made my heart beat flames all through the blood. Yeah, the scent of happiness is consuming senses, all desires. But the moon is out, and my song is on, and the flames are burning—they're burning strong. I'm a walking hazard, a heat of a blizzard, take one step forward, and fall into the fire.

Chorus: Burn baby burn. Go on and melt away—every thought I let devour me, every word you didn't say. Burn baby burn burn burn, I feel it now, the rush of the wind, on the flames that never will give in—see the passion in my eyes, at every turn. Somethin' exicitin' is happenin' now, and I'm not afraid to let you burn. Burn, burn, baby, burn.

Tear up the confetti till it's ready to be, just a pile of things you used. Tear up all the days that you promised the sun, because I found it now, without you. Tear up all the nights I spent watering thoughts, on my face, on my arms, on the sheets, on my scars, just waiting for me, waiting for you. Yeah burn it all, burn everything.


Licking the ashes off crystal balls that never knew the future. I like asking them how they think of us now, and why they couldn't tell me sooner. I'll remember long ago what they said, how they believed in us the way we believed them. I'm ready to let go, I'm ready to say no, I'm moving on. This is my closure.

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.
