Get Your Groove On With The FAIM

Looking for not only some great music to add to your playlist, but some that you can hear live? Well, look no further than The FAIM. This four-piece alternative pop band from Perth, Australia has some jams and is currently on a North American tour with Andy Black.

The band is composed of Josh Raven on lead vocals, Sam Tye on guitar, Stephen Beerkens on bass and keys and Linden Marissen on drums and percussion. A few months ago the band finished up their first ever headline tour in Australia and Europe which resulted in multiple sold-out shows, which comes as no surprise.

"Saints of the Sinners" was the band's debut single and they sure came in with a bang. The single was written with the help of musician and producer, John Feldmann and Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz. After doing some digging I've discovered that the track is about not letting anyone or anything stand in the way of who or where you want to be. I feel that was such a fitting debut song for a band that has worked as hard as The FAIM has to be where they are today since coming together in 2014.

Since being signed to BMG music, The FAIM have been making waves in the music industry and have had to opportunity to learn from and co-write songs with not only Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz but blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Twenty One Pilot's Josh Dun and 5 Second of Summer's Ashton Irwin. They also earned a spot as a supporting act on tours with Sleeping With Sirens, Against The Current and PVRIS as well as playing multiple festival staples.

The FAIM currently have some jams released that will have you up on your feet and groovin' in no time. A few include, "Summer Is a Curse," "Make Believe," and "Fire." They also recently dropped their newest single, "Amelie," which is a track that you don't want to miss out on. The band will be releasing their first full-length album this fall so definitely keep an eye out for that!

If I had to pick a track that stands out to me the most it would have to be "A Million Stars" from the band's 2018 "Summer Is a Curse" EP. Since stumbling across the song I instantly added it to my playlist and have been playing it non-stop since. The track not only has great lyrics but has a sort of reggae feel to it and definitely forces you to bop along.

The FAIM are just about halfway through their North American tour with Andy Black, but they still have shows in many great cities to come. If they are playing at a city near you I highly recommend that you and some friends check it out for a fun and energetic time!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
