Give Hobo Johnson And His Music A Chance

Hobo Johnson is a great artist with a great sense of himself.

Give Hobo Johnson And His Music A Chance

Frank Lopes, or professionally known as Hobo Johnson, is a rapper/musician/producer, most known for his song "Peach Scone" that I found on Facebook. He is a small artist with a strong voice and passion. He mixes, writes, and makes his own music, the passion is obvious. Take a listen to his album that was released in 2017 called "The Rise of Hobo Johnson." Not only does the lyrical creativity create an effect, but his tone and raw voice shows you the realness of his songs and shows you parts of his life.

"Peach Scone" is a song about a boy who loves a girl who has a boyfriend, the song enunciates his feelings toward her and the situation overall. It is a funky song that could be seen as a joke, but I consider it an introduction to Hobo Johnson as a person. He has a funny personality and this song shows this side of him. The chorus contains some light screaming, which I enjoy because it reminds me of a concert or a house party when everyone screams the lyrics. That also allows you to get hyped with the song.

Another song I like is called "Sex in the City," which starts off with a conversation about a payment plan. He continues to discuss norms in our society and how beauty grants you special privileges.

This song not only talks about relevant events such as social constructions and how it should be, as in the bridge it talks about their souls together just talking without any judgments.

It takes the present day and what Johnson believes would be the right way to get to know one another. The song has a great beat and lyrics, the chorus is one you can sing along to but also connect with. It's rare to find a rap song that you can sing along with but also have real meaning rather than other songs that just talk about sex, drugs, and money.

The last song I want to talk about is called "3%," which is about following your dreams and not selling yourself short just because that's what you're supposed to do or because you need money. He was told that he had a three percent chance that he'd make it, but he took the chance because he didn't want to have a job he hated making money just to uphold rent and other bills.

He believes that making smaller amounts of money and being happy is an acceptable amount compared to making average amounts of money and waking up and being really sad. This song not only inspires me to take the chance if it makes me happy.

You shouldn't sit at a job you're not happy with if you could be happy doing other things.

Overall, Hobo Johnson is a great artist with a great sense of himself, he is someone who will not give in to the music industry and write what he wants and take the time and money to produce something he loves. He also has a past that several people can relate to, which is important for an artist. I believe Hobo Johnson is a very unique artist, you can not compare him to other ones.

Make the time to listen to his new album, if you don't like it, then that's OK. But give him a chance, I'm happy to have discovered him and hope to hear new music soon.

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.
