12 Country Lyrics EVERY College Girl Should Lean On

12 Country Lyrics EVERY College Girl Should Lean On

You're gonna miss this.

Country music-- the kind of music with a catchy beat that everyone can relate too, especially college girls. I mean how could college girls not relate to songs about love, heartbreak, faith, struggles, and songs about growing up.

Here's a list of 12 Country music lyrics that every college girl should lean on at least once in her life:

1. "Jesus take the wheel, take it from my hands, cause I can't do this on my own"

Carrie Underwood's hit song "Jesus Take the Wheel" speaks to every woman out there going through hard times. With all the stress going on in college from difficult exams and papers to drama with friends and boys, many times we truly do need Jesus to take the wheel.

2. "When was the last time you did something for the first time? Yeah, let yourself go, follow that feeling"

College is all about trying new things and continually challenging yourself to help you grow and become a stronger individual and Darius Rucker's song "For the First Time" speaks to this perfectly. I mean who wouldn't want to drink from a two dollar bottle of wine or run barefoot through the mud?

3. "It's different for girls when their hearts get broke, can't tape it back together with a whiskey and a coke"

Finally, a man who gets it. Dierks Bentley's song "It's Different for Girls" is a perfect song to listen too when going through a heartbreak. Guys suck and drink their sorrows away, but it's different for girls.

4. "You gotta dig your roots before the sun goes down, show some love back to your hometown, fall in love, plant some seeds, and carve your name in the family tree"

Florida Georgia Line's "Dig Your Roots" is the perfect reminder never to forget where we came from. In college, life gets stressful and trips home can become fewer and fewer, but FGL reminds us never to forget our roots and the ground we grew up on.

5. "I ain't here for a long time, but I'm here for a good time"

Amidst all the stresses of college, these four years go by fast and are said to be some of the best years of your life. So take it from George Strait and his classic hit song "Here for a Good Time" because before you know it, college will be over so make sure it was a good time.

6. "Wear out your boots and kick up the gravel, don't be afraid to take the road less traveled"

Take it from Lauren Alaina and her song "Road Less Traveled", don't follow the crowd, pave your own path and don't hold back. College is about discovering yourself and you can't do that when you take the sidewalk.

7. "We are gonna have a house party, we don't need nobody, turn your TV off, break that boom box out, we'll wake up all the neighbors, til the whole block hates us, and the cops show up and try to shut us down"

We all need a little Sam Hunt in our lives, I mean what college girl wouldn't want to have a house party with him?

8. "Let's go girls, come on"

Who better than Shania Twain to pump us up for anything college throws at us. I mean, I feel like I can conquer the world every time I hear her say "I feel like a woman".

9. "Everything will be alright, if we just keep dancing like we're 22"

What girl doesn't want to jam out to Taylor Swift's catchy song "22" every day of the week? Have a big test coming up? Everything will be alright, let's just keep on dancing.

10. "Girl, that night was just like you, unforgettable"

Thomas Rhett steals my heart every single time he publishes a new song and "Unforgettable" definitely follows suit. I mean how can any college girl not feel loved when there are guys like Thomas Rhett in this world that give us hope.

11. "I know you got mountains to climb, but always stay humble and kind"

College is hard and at times we even feel broken, but Tim McGraw reminds us to always persevere with kindness and grace in his song "Humble and Kind".

12. "You're gonna miss this, you're gonna want this back, you're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast"

And finally, Trace Adkins hits us hard in his song "You're Gonna Miss This" because even though at times we can't wait to graduate, we are definitely gonna miss this.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

From One Nerd To Another

My contemplation of the complexities between different forms of art.


Aside from reading Guy Harrison's guide to eliminating scientific ignorance called, "At Least Know This: Essential Science to Enhance Your Life" and, "The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer" by Charles Graeber, an informative and emotional historical account explaining the potential use of our own immune systems to cure cancer, I read articles and worked on my own writing in order to keep learning while enjoying my winter break back in December. I also took a trip to the Guggenheim Museum.

I wish I was artistic. Generally, I walk through museums in awe of what artists can do. The colors and dainty details simultaneously inspire me and remind me of what little talent I posses holding a paintbrush. Walking through the Guggenheim was no exception. Most of the pieces are done by Hilma af Klint, a 20th-century Swedish artist expressing her beliefs and curiosity about the universe through her abstract painting. I was mostly at the exhibit to appease my mom (a K - 8th-grade art teacher), but as we continued to look at each piece and read their descriptions, I slowly began to appreciate them and their underlying meanings.

I like writing that integrates symbols, double meanings, and metaphors into its message because I think that the best works of art are the ones that have to be sought after. If the writer simply tells you exactly what they were thinking and how their words should be interpreted, there's no room for imagination. An unpopular opinion in high school was that reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne was fun. Well, I thought it was. At the beginning of the book, there's a scene where Hawthorne describes a wild rosebush that sits just outside of the community prison. As you read, you are free to decide whether it's an image of morality, the last taste of freedom and natural beauty for criminals walking toward their doom, or a symbol of the relationship between the Puritans with their prison-like expectations and Hester, the main character, who blossoms into herself throughout the novel. Whichever one you think it is doesn't matter, the point is that the rosebush can symbolize whatever you want it to. It's the same with paintings - they can be interpreted however you want them to be.

As we walked through the building, its spiral design leading us further and further upwards, we were able to catch glimpses of af Klint's life through the strokes of her brush. My favorite of her collections was one titled, "Evolution." As a science nerd myself, the idea that the story of our existence was being incorporated into art intrigued me. One piece represented the eras of geological time through her use of spirals and snails colored abstractly. She clued you into the story she was telling by using different colors and tones to represent different periods. It felt like reading "The Scarlet Letter" and my biology textbook at the same time. Maybe that sounds like the worst thing ever, but to me it was heaven. Art isn't just art and science isn't just science. Aspects of different studies coexist and join together to form something amazing that will speak to even the most untalented patron walking through the museum halls.
