Hold On, You Got This

Lyrics that provide emotional support through the tough times.

Hold On, You Got This

Music is a source of emotional support and comfort for a lot of people—myself included. Identifying with a certain band or genre can show who you are and what you are going through in your life. When it comes to metal, alternative, pop punk or metal-core music, people tend to think that there is no meaning in the lyrics due to the screaming or the crazy sounds of the band. Boy, are they wrong. These lyrics have the most powerful and meaningful messages out of all other types of music. Here are 10 lyrics in—particular that I think everybody needs to know of that have incredible meaning.

1. "When the night is cold, and you feel like no one knows, what it's like to be the only one buried in this hole, you can make it to the sunrise." - "Sunrise," Our Last Night

2. "My whole life they said I'd be nothing, well I'm something, and I would rather be the stray, than be nothing to no one at all." - "The Stays," Sleeping with Sirens

3. "The things we feel we can never change, can end up changing everything." - "Suicide; Stigma," The Color Morale

4. "Keep your hopes up high and your head down low." - "All I Want," A Day to Remember

5. "Is our generation too blind to see true beauty lies beneath the skin." - "Beneath the Skin," Memphis May Fire


6. "And on my deathbed, all I'll see is you. The life may leave my lungs, but my heart will stay with you." - "Deathbeds," Bring me the Horizon

7. "But I believe there's more to life than all my problems maybe there's still hope for me to start again. Get my feet back on the ground, pull my head out of the clouds. I think it's time for me to figure me out." - "Figure Me Out," The Summer Set

8. "Save your heart, For someone that's worth dying for. Don't give it away, Torn apart. Never getting what you've been crying for. It's always the same." - "Save Your Heart," Mayday Parade


9. "And the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to. It's not that I don't feel the pain, it's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore." - "Last Hope," Paramore

10. "I feel my heart, like a rock, it's sinking. These days can get so dark, like an eclipse in the sky. But I can rise above I can find the light." - "Hope," We Came as Romans

11. "I know it's tough, but please don't give up. Don't speak that way, 'cause I won't allow you. You're too young to live this way. Just close your eyes and see, the true meaning. You're too young to live this way. Just look around and see, that life is beauty." - "The Great Hendowski," Of Mice and Men

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
