A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2009

In middle school, music was my favorite thing to listen to, sing to, and to dance to. I felt it was my only creative outlet and took me out of the harsh world. I would only ask for iTunes gift cards on holidays so that I could purchase more and more music to my iPod, now everything is different and iTunes isn't the hotshot anymore and it makes you wonder where has the time gone? So, here are 25 songs that you definitely had playing on your iPod in 2009.

"Party in the U.S.A" - Miley Cyrus

You already know how popular this was, do I even need to explain.

"Fire Burning" - Sean Kingston

Classic.

"LoveGame" - Lady Gaga

I loved to sing this song when I was 8 years old. I clearly did not know the message.

"Boom Boom Pow" - The Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas were huge and only getting bigger.

"Fireflies" - Owl City

I put this in there because everyone sang it, this was the only song you knew by them, and I did this for my third-grade class show.

"Her Diamonds" - Rob Thomas

"Good Girls Go Bad" - Cobra Starship

I'm sorry but I still bop to this song. And the Gossip Girl herself Leighton Meester singing is great, the music video is a must-watch.

"Right Round" - Flo Rida and Ke$ha

Also had no idea what the message was in this but I still sang it out loud in the backseat probably horrifying my parents.... sorry mom.

"Whatcha Say" - Jason Derulo

"Battlefield" - Jordin Sparks

I remember in detail singing this during a dodgeball match with my friend while kids probably cringed at us, but it's fine because it's Jordin Sparks.

"Empire State of Mind" - Jay-Z and Alicia Keys

"Love Story" - Taylor Swift

I listened to this song so much and thought it was so romantic. I would sing this to my imaginary boyfriend all the time.

"Hey, Soul Sister" - Train

This was on all the time. I loved it.

"Heartless" - Kanye West

The first song I actually learned to "rap" to. I always flexed on my friends singing every verse.

"Kiss Me thru the Phone" - Soulja Boy

"Soulja Boy Tell'em... BABY!" He gave out his own phone number in the song, how much better can you get?

"Halo" - Beyonce

Another song I sang to my imaginary boyfriend....

"You Found Me" - The Fray

"WHERE WERE YOU!" I sang this lyric with heart, acting like I was hurt by someone.

"Replay" - Iyaz

"21 Guns" - Green Day

Still a classic.

"Miss Independent" - Ne-Yo

I imagined I was "miss independent," no shame.

"Disturbia" - Rihanna

"Bum bum beedum bum bum beedumbum"

"Already Gone" - Kelly Clarkson

Another imaginary boyfriend song.... were we okay?

"Womanizer" - Britney Spears

Britney Spears is a national treasure.

"Whatever You Like" - T.I.

If only I was the waitress who got his number in this video, T.I. I'm still available.

"Dead and Gone" - Justin timberline and T.I.

Another song I sang like I was hurt when really my middle school crush didn't say hi to me that day. I'm still mad.

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.

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.
