"Shake It Off" - Taylor Swift

I hated this song the first time I heard it, similar to every other Taylor Swift song I’ve ever heard. But like every other Taylor Swift song, it grew on me. I don’t care what anyone says, this is such a great feel-good song. I think I had all the lyrics memorized by the third time I listened to it.   

"Chandelier" - Sia 

To be honest I’ve been crazy about this song all summer, but listening to it in the fall is even better. Sia’s voice is incredibly powerful and it cracks in just the right places in the chorus. The relaxed verses and the gradual build-up in the bridge culminate into the type of chorus you just have to scream when singing along.     

"Habits" - Tove Lo 

This is my absolute favorite song right now. I’ve probably listened to it about 50 times within the past week and I’m still not sick of it. I especially love listening to this song while walking to class because it has such a solid rhythm. This one’s great to sing along to as well, and the remix is awesome. 

"Sweater Weather" - The Neighbourhood 

In addition to the fact that it actually is sweater weather, this is the kind of song that makes me picture a gloomy fall afternoon. Most of the song is pretty upbeat with a driving rhythm, but my favorite part is when the tempo slows down a bit for the last minute and a half to give the song a lullaby-like feeling.      

"Out Of My League" - Fitz & The Tantrums 

I love this song just because it’s so upbeat and makes the walk to class a lot less boring. It makes me want to walk with purpose. And the tune is light-hearted and happy, which automatically puts me in a great mood.      

"Stubborn Love" - The Lumineers 

If you’re looking for some classic hipster coffee shop music, The Lumineers are your people. This song is probably one of their more popular ones, but it’s still a great one. I find that I don’t walk nearly as fast when I listen to this song, because it’s pretty relaxing.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
