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.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.
