Have you heard of Skating Polly: the post-riot grrrl, indie pop, punk-rock band from Oklahoma that is transcending genres and eras with their music? If not, you definitely should.

Skating Polly was formed by step-siblings Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse and was later joined by their brother Kurtis Mayo. The band is known for its members switching off instruments as they can play multiple, and when Kurtis joined as the drummer, it allowed Kelli to focus on bass and Peyton on guitar.

In 2011, Kelli and Peyton released their debut album, "Taking Over The World" after recording it in their living room which caught the attention of multiple underground music icons. The band then went on to create more albums over the years and after becoming a trio with their brother Kurtis, they released their latest and fifth full-length album, "The Make It All Show" in May of 2018.

The band's poetic lyrics and melodic arrangements pair well with their intense live shows and Skating Polly has had a very busy past two years where they have played well over 100 shows, performed at multiple major festivals, toured Europe and joined on a few tours. It is clear that the band is growing both musically and lyrically, and challenging themselves as performers.

A few songs that really stand out to me and I found myself instantly adding to a few playlists were "Protective Boy," "Camelot" and "Hail Mary" which features Louise Post and Nina Gordon. However, the band's most recent single, "Play House" has to be my favorite. Skating Polly's music is so raw and unfiltered in the best way. It's no surprise that their music caught so many people's attention.

As Kelli and Peyton did when they were a duo, the trip will still continue to switch instruments throughout their live shows as it is part of what makes Skating Polly unique. I haven't had the chance to see the band play live myself, but I've been told that they are something special. Luckily for you, the band is currently on a US tour through the end of July so your chances of being able to catch them playing live are pretty great. You can find tour dates and purchase tickets here.

If Skating Polly is coming to a venue near you, grab some friends, tickets and have the time of your life as you dance and scream along to this punk-rock sibling trio.

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.
