12 Songs To Put You In A Good Mood

Happy listening!

We've all had those days where we just feel like we're in a funk, no matter how much we try to make ourselves feel better. That's just part of living a busy, college lifestyle. Music has helped me out many times when I've been feeling this strain. With finals week coming up, we will all need all the help we can get. Here's a list of songs that always make me feel a little bit better. Maybe they'll help you too.

1. The Middle - Jimmy Eat World

A classic song to remind you that there will be hard times, but you can get through it.

2. Mr. Brightside - The Killers

Basically, just for the meme.

3. Carry On - Fun.

A wonderful, calming throwback to one of the few good things that happened during the middle school years.

4. Great Big Storm- Nate Ruess

Nate Ruess is the former lead singer of Fun. and has one of my favorite voices in music.

5. I Wanna Get Better - Bleachers

An optimistic and upbeat tune.

6. Imaginary Parties - Superfruit

A little-known tune by two of the guys from Pentatonix. It's bright and bubbly and you can't help but get lost in it.

7. Jackie and Wilson - Hozier

Just a feel-good song that you can listen to while dancing around the house.

8. Could Have Been Me - The Struts

Another little-known song to inspire you to get your butt into gear and follow your dreams.

9. Hey Jude - The Beatles

Just a zen classic and, if you've never heard it, there's a huge hole in your life.

10. Love Yourself - Justin Beiber

Who would've thought that I'd be putting this guy's name on a list of my favorite songs? Anyway, the name says it all.

11. Believer - Imagine Dragons

Every time this song comes on the radio, the volume goes up. Such a great song to jam out to.

12. So Much More Than This - Grace VanderWaal

This girl is a literal ray of sunshine. That's all there is to it.

Happy listening!

7 Things From Your Favorite Kids Shows You Wish You Had

Powerade or BLIX?

Television was the ultimate escape from my childhood. The characters, the situations, and the lessons all appealed to me and my young mind. However, some of the material objects in these shows made a better lasting impression than those that actually mattered.

When watching a tv show as a child, it is easy to be filled with excitement when seeing something the characters have that you want. Often times, these things don't actually exist and are made specifically for the show. These seven are a few of the many things from kid's television that you wish you had growing up.

1. Zoey 101 - Jet X

These things are so cool. Yeah, I understand that I could get a scooter and have a very similar experience, but the Jet X comes in so many cool colors! Plus, Zoey's commercial for the Jet X was too iconic to ignore. I could really use one of these.

2. Drake & Josh - Clackers

This GIF says it all. The clackers are the simplest form of fun to ever grace children's' television. It was the fad of all fads. Forget fidget spinners, clackers are where it's at.

3. iCarly - Pear Pad & Groovy Smoothie

Can we just live in Carly's world? The pear products gave Apple a run for their money. I mean, who wouldn't want a tablet in the shape of fruit?? Speaking of fruit, those smoothies looked delicious and Groovy Smoothie had the approval of the greatest boy band in the world (see picture).

4. Hannah Montana - Hannah's Closet

8-year-old me was #shook when I saw Hannah's closet for the first time. Not only is it only accessible through a secret door, but it had all the trendiest clothes of the late 2000s. Not gonna lie, I checked my closet for a secret, cooler closet after this episode aired...

5. That's So Raven - Raven's Room (Post Makeover)

A hanging canopy bed. That is all. Can I get Hannah's closet to go with it?

6. Suite Life of Zack & Cody - London's Mirror

Leave it to London to have a magic mirror. Her own personal stylist and complimenter all in one.

7. Big Time Rush - Slide

Honestly, the boys of Big Time Rush had the best set up. I mean, who doesn't want a slide in their apartment? All the fun games and bright colors mean there was never a dull time in that building.

4 Inspiring TED Talks You Can Watch In About 40 Minutes

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.” - Albert Einstein

TED stands for technology, entertainment, and design. These talks are a way for viewers to be inspired, optimistic, and educated. There are a wide variety of topics and speakers who share their ideas, hoping that what they share does not go unheard.

If you have a curious mind, even in the slightest, these videos are able to provide food for thought in a matter of just a few minutes. Through my love for the world around me and my desire to understand as much as I can, these talks not only are great for me as a student but also as a person. Listed below are a couple of my personal favorites when it comes to the world of TED.

1. "A Better Way To Get Punctured" by Nikolai Begg

Duration - 10 minutes

For those of you who have a medical mind and a desire to learn more about the medical world, as well as engineering, this is one talk that will blow your mind. This talk is a personal testimony of a student who stood in an operating room and quickly came up with an idea that will change the way medical professionals perform procedures.

2. "Want To Change The World? Start By Being Brave Enough To Care" by Cleo Wade

Duration - 11 minutes

An absolutely stunning talk about being aware of yourself, others, and the world around us. We live in a world full of distress, judgment, hate, and anger. The artist and poet speaks out about changing the world little by little, starting with yourself. Choosing to see rather than look. To listen rather than just hear. The overall gist of the talk is that the world can change because of you, but you have to be the one to believe it.

3. "Why Some Of Us Don't Have One True Calling" by Emilie Wapnick

Duration - 12:30 minutes

This video resonates with those of us who are restless, wandering, and anxious. This talk provides a whole other perspective on the way that we make decisions on what it is we want to do in life. If you are a college student, I highly encourage you to take the time to sit, watch, and listen to her message because it is one you will not want to miss.

4. "Inside The Mind Of A Master Procrastinator" by Tim Urban

Duration - 14 minutes

Through the use of child-like drawings and humor, this talk is both fun and insightful. This is a talk that will bring you into the mind of a pro-procrastinator (and if you are a college student we already know the life of being in this state because we seem to be always living it).

So, if you are supposed to be doing your calculus homework or studying for your midterm, take a mental break and procrastinate by watching a video about procrastination.
