1. "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen

If you haven't seen the new Bohemian Rhapsody movie, I STRONGLY urge you to, despite what critics say. It's an incredibly tragic yet inspiring story of the rise of Queen and Freddie Mercury himself.

2. "Sweater Weather" by The Neighbourhood

I hear this song every year at least once around this time of year so it felt appropriate to add it on this list.

3. "Somebody Else" by The 1975

Usually, when I think of this time of the year, my mind always brings me to the word "moody" and this song captures the essence of moody.

4. "Change of Season" by Hall and Oats

This song basically talks about the seasons.

5. "All I Want For Christmas" by Mariah Carey

It's classic. It's festive. It's a favorite for the holiday season. Expect this one to be overplayed for the next few months.

6. "Thank u, next" by Ariana Grande

I don't have to explain this one but just recognize that it is genius.

7. "When the party's over" by Billie Eilish

Melodramatic music is necessary during this time of year.

8. "Sign of the Times" by Harry Styles

I stan him and you should too. He's an actual angel and this song makes me emo.

9. "Little of Your Love" by HAIM

HAIM is super retro so if your'e into that sort of vibe.

10. "Let It Happen" by Tame Impala

Speechless.

To My Graduating Big, Thank You For Being The Older Sister I Never Had

Thank you for being you, and helping me be the best me I can be.

I've always been the older sister to my own sister and even my cousins. I grew up looking to my mom and my aunts for how to act but never had an older girl closer to my age to look up to and learn from. Flash forward to 2017, and I joined my sorority. I did so much research and knew at some point I would get to go through Big/Little, and have a big sister to call my own for however many years she would be at the university.

Boy did I luck out when I met you, my amazing big.

You came into my life and we've been inseparable since. You listen to my life problems, whether it's fear of doing poorly in school or my latest updates on the guy who ghosted me (and there's been A LOT of those this semester). You've been there when I wasn't at my best and gave me the support I needed to get through my hard times and celebrated with me through the good times. We're both kind souls, and people tend to use that a lot, which we don't deserve, but we put up with it anyway.

Some girls have bigs who genuinely suck, and I am so sorry that they got stuck with someone who doesn't really care about them like they thought they would. I'm glad we have such a real relationship that will last us through the tests of time. You're going to be a bridesmaid in my wedding, and our kids will be best friends. It was all pre-written in our destinies that you would be my big and I'd be your little. The sorority brought us together and I can't thank it enough.

I don't know what I'm going to do without you next fall when I step onto campus as a senior and you'll be off adulting. You're a core part of my life and instead of being a few minutes walk from me, you'll be very far away. Phone calls and Facetime will have to become my best friend instead of hanging out in your dorm or the dining hall.

You're such an inspiration. I'm so proud of how much you do every day, and how you always keep morale up even when you're exhausted. You put effort into everything you do and try your best no matter what. You're going to achieve such great things in the future, and I'm glad I'll be able to watch you blossom outside of college.

To future doughnut and ice cream dates, where we can eat our hearts out and gossip like we always do. I gained a sister and a best friend all in one, and I'm not ready for you to leave me. I know you're ready to start your next chapter in life asap.

Thank you for being you, and helping me be the best me I can be.

Love you,

Your Little

An Open Letter From The Daughter Of A Drug Addict

"Someone telling you, 'I love you' doesn't necessarily mean that they do. Look for love not in words, but in actions. If somebody loves you, they are going to show it."

It's hard to absorb the fact that a father could love himself more than his own child. Unfortunately, though, it is a reality that I must face every day of my life, however directly or indirectly. You never think it's humanly possible for a father to love himself more unconditionally than he loves his child - but there is one scenario in which this disturbing circumstance is found tangible- when he is an addict and is selfish. It is so hard to see somebody that is supposed to love you more than anything, love themselves only. Watching somebody prioritize themselves and their addiction over you- it's both a blessing and a curse. Naturally, we are raised to believe parents are the most perfect human beings, and if something is not okay, they will be the last to breakdown. We are raised to believe our parents love us unconditionally and are inherently supposed to prioritize us, their children, over anything else in the world.

It has taken me seventeen years to break this barrier, and finally accept the fact that some parents are not so perfect. For me, that parent who broke the barrier for me was my father. It hurts to know that the person who is supposed to love you most in this world simply does not. But, it's an important fact to swallow, and I am satisfied to say that I've finally accepted this circumstance, although I've tumultuously tried to combat the feelings and deny the horrors of rejection in the past, all through my adolescence. I have, to my benefit, fortunately, realized one thing that I believe I needed to figure out for myself- the fact that love is not implicitly implied. It is not just 'there.' It is cultivated, nurtured, and created. It is evident in actions, words, and physical motions and gestures. Love is not something you can just write off aimlessly. Someone telling you, "I love you" doesn't necessarily mean that they do. Look for love not in words, but in actions. If somebody loves you, they are going to show it.

They will show up.

They will be there.

They will not make you wait.

They will not make you beg for their attention.

They will give love to you unconditionally and without request.

They will show you they love you in the smallest ways, through the smallest actions which ultimately are the most important.

They will be a present and constant part of your life. If something comes up or they are withheld from you, they will make it up to you.

They will stay true to their promises.

It is such a hard pill to swallow. Realizing that somebody who is supposed to love you does not love you in the way that they are supposed to. But sometimes in life, we have to accept things for what they are, raw and honest. I have had to come to terms with this fact, even though it genuinely hurts me... Some people aren't going to love you. Is this wrong? Maybe. But can I change this? No. Addiction isn't a disease. It's a decision. An indirect one, perhaps, but it is, in fact, a solid decision and it can be avoided at all costs.

You have to choose yourself at some point. We all want to save the addicts in our life- we want to save them from themselves. But at some point- we must choose ourselves.

Having a parent who is an addict is one of the hardest things that I have had to overcome. The way I see it, however, everything that happens to you makes you stronger. That quote reigns true- if it doesn't kill you, it simply makes you stronger.

To everyone out there dealing with the consequences of having an addict as an essential part of their life, keep being strong. As hard of a pill as it is to swallow, everything happens for some reason. Let this be your closure. When you can't find one good reason, let it be that this situation you are dealing with will make you stronger in the end. I guarantee it.
