Frank Ocean's 5 Best Singles

I am fiening for more Frank so this is how I'm coping with it.

Frank Ocean's 5 Best Singles

1. "Moon River"

This song is gorgeous - so soothing and so light. Frank's vocals are just very beautifully composed and meshed with the minimal production so well. The harmonies, the lyrics, and the overall vibe are so amazing. The complexity of the lyrics are so flawless and pair immaculately with the instrumentals.

2. "Novacane"

A big switch from "Moon River," but this upbeat song is one of my favorite Frank songs of all time. The lyrical intelligence plus the amount of really smoothly placed connections and innuendos is insane. The upbeat song is an easy and fun listener, but, like most Frank songs. When you really listen and dissect the lyrics it's a whole different story. It's enjoyable to listen and catch something within the lyrics that you haven't before.

3. "Dear April"

This is a very similar vibe to "Moon River." Its very instrumental heavy production emphasizes the vocals and makes it flow so well. Listening to this song hurts the heart but also makes you feel like you're floating— such a delicate song with such a powerful feeling. I can't get over how well this song was constructed.

4. "In My Room"

The flow of this song is different from other Frank songs. It's more futuristic melodic production takes you to a different dimension. Lyrically its fun yet still has deeper lyrical meaning. I think that is why Ocean's music is so appealing. You can listen to it just to listen to it, but then you can also listen to understand and see more of the picture.

5. ​"Biking" ft. Tyler The Creator and Jay-z

For not being a huge Jay-z fan, I really enjoy this song. When Frank collabs with an artist, it doesn't matter who it is - I will listen to it and probably love it. Frank and Tyler have such an amazing artist dynamic and that shines through in this song. They bounce off of each other so well and it makes this song 10x better.

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.

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.
