A Few Of My Favorite Sounds

The Most Satisfying Yet

A Few Of My Favorite Sounds

A lot of us take the simplest of sounds for granted. Sounds that are nostalgic, and soothing, and even satisfying. So I've decided to compile a list of a few of my favorite sounds:

1. That soft prickly sound a record player makes

Music is something I have always been passionate about, but I love love love this soft prickly sound tremendously. I'm glad I have my own record player to hear this satisfying static -- and the music of course -- at any time.

2. The Starz Channel theme (only on Sundays)

Whenever I hear the Starz Channel theme it can only mean one thing: Outlander! I binged watched the first two seasons of Outlander for the first time in a matter of weeks; so I guess I was conditioned to get excited whenever I heard it because I knew that for the next hour(s), I'd be watching my favorite show.

(P.S. It's only the first three seconds in this video. I couldn't find the shortened version.)

3. Thunderstorms

I think this could be best explained in a previous article of mine, Finding Solace in Thunderstorms.

4. Wind chimes

For as long as I can remember, there have been a set of hanging wind chimes in my backyard. Since my bedroom window faces the backyard, I always loved hearing them when the wind picks up. It's a very soothing sound.

5. Chirping birds in early Spring mornings

The sound of birds singing in the morning is always a peaceful way to wake up. The mellow and tranquil chirping often reminds me that in the end, everything will be okay.

6. The crunching leaves make when you step on them

It is no secret that my favorite season is Autumn. There is much to admire about that time of year: Halloween, the crisp air, apple & pumpkin picking, and of course, the falling leaves.

7. Heels on concrete

This reminds me of New York City for some reason; a fashion capital of the world. So every time I hear a person walking in heels, I imagine they are about to make power moves in every way possible.

8. A crackling fire

The crackling of fires is simply a beautiful sound. Not to mention completely satisfying. Every time I hear it I just have the urge to relax in a cabin for a weekend.

9. Sleigh bells

I associate sleigh bells with one of my favorite Christmas movies, The Polar Express. They're pretty symbolic in that movie. I also always think of twinkly lights, and being all warm and cozy inside.

10. Crowds at concerts

You know that moment when you're at a concert and the lights starts to dim, indicating that the band is about to come out on stage? That's when the crowd gets louder and goes insane. You also can't forget about those moments when the intro to an iconic song starts, and everyone starts to sings at the top of their lungs. It's a collective feeling of excitement and adrenaline rushing through your veins.

I hope this list relates to some of your favorite sounds. Happy listening!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
