An Honest Review Of Ed Sheeran's New Album

"Basically, it was sent down to Earth by God Himself."

An Honest Review Of Ed Sheeran's New Album

For those of you who may not know, Ed Sheeran released his new album last Friday. He titled it "÷" (pronounced Divide), and quite honestly, this album was basically sent down to Earth by God Himself. Each song tells a different story (as per usual), but the mix between upbeat and slow songs really threw me for a loop when I first listened to it. As I drove home today to Philadelphia from Chestertown, I listened to the entire album all the way through. If any police officer would have seen what a sobbing mess I was from Supermarket Flowers, I definitely would have been pulled over for unsafe driving (LOL).

One of my favorite songs on the album has to be Castle on the Hill just because the lyrics are so fitting to the life of a current college student:

"We found weekend jobs, when we got paid
We'd buy cheap spirits and drink them straight
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long
Oh, how we've grown
But I can't wait to go home"

Lyrical genius right there - let me tell ya!

Oh, and another one of my favorites is definitely Nancy Mulligan. This beautiful, upbeat track about Ed's grandparents really gives us listeners a look into his true values. His last album, "X" (Multiply) contained the song Afire Love, which was written about his Grandfather's passing. Nancy Mulligan on this album is a fitting tribute to his Grandparents' love story. Because of this, it is easily one of my favorites!

Overall, I give this album a 10/10 would recommend rating. It is definitely the best one he has released so far! On that note, folks, that's all I have for ya! Do me a favor - if you haven't yet, go listen to this album. Trust me, it'll knock your socks off!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
