5 Songs That Everyone Needs To Add To Their 'Winter Mood' Playlist ASAP

When I think of winter, my mind goes to fireplaces, snowstorms, scarves, red cheeks and noses from the cold, sled riding, and of course, the holidays.

When I'm making a playlist, my goal is to find the best songs that match the vibe I get from this season. Whether you're used to snowstorms or sunshine during the holiday season, the overarching feeling of this time of year is warm, cozy, and filled with love.

These 5 songs perfectly capture the winter spirit.

1. "Mistletoe" by Justin Bieber

"Mistletoe" has been one of the songs I associate with winter since its release in 2011. Its mellow beat and sweet lyrics make it perfect for the cozy winter vibes. It is reminiscent of classic holiday tunes, but with a more relevant sound. No wonder it's played at every holiday party. I mean, who wouldn't want to be under the mistletoe with Justin Bieber?

2. "Wonderland" by Taylor Swift

This song is not necessarily a holiday song, but to me, it fits the winter mood perfectly. Released in 2014, "Wonderland" features bells that remind you of the holiday season. It talks about a breakup, which for those of us who are single during the holiday season, is perfect for the darker mood that winter can bring.

3. "Midnight" by Coldplay

This song fits the "sitting by the fire" vibes immaculately. It's mellow and soothing, with soft vocals and a simple sound. For many, including myself, the holidays can seem a bit melancholy. It's not a sad time of year, but emotions make the season what it is. This song speaks to that feeling.

4. "Winter Things" by Ariana Grande

"Winter Things" reminds me of the holidays in a tropical area. The single ukulele and Ariana Grande's vocals mesh beautifully. This song brings out the positive feelings that the holiday season radiates. It's great for when you're wrapping presents or baking cookies.

5. "Sweater Weather" by The Neighborhood

"Sweater Weather" is a personal favorite of mine for the winter. It somehow captures the feeling of snow in a song. It also has that deep and rich sound that matches the winter season. Like the other songs I've mentioned, it matches the more mellow sound. Winter is in fact perfect "Sweater Weather,:

Whether you find winter to be a season filled with positivity or one a bit more melancholy, these songs make a winning winter playlist. They capture the many emotions that people experience during the winter, and I hope that you'll enjoy!

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.

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.
