The Perfect Playlist For The Wounded Hopeless Romantic, Yes, I'm Looking At You

Maybe you're exhausted of dead-end romances that never last, or being caught in the endless mind games.

The Perfect Playlist For The Wounded Hopeless Romantic, Yes, I'm Looking At You

For when you long to find true love but you're also so jaded -- I hope this music speaks to your soul the way it spoke to mine. Caution: a lot of these songs are beautifully tragic. Although "Somebody That I Used to Know" isn't on the list, Gotye was right, you can really get addicted to a certain kind of sadness.

This is the playlist for the lovesick dreamers. Solace in a society where nothing feels genuine or long-lasting anymore, and true love is a pipe dream -- oh, but we still dream. Perhaps love has touched you and mocked you with its promise, only to be snatched away. Maybe you're exhausted of dead-end romances that never last, or being caught in the endless mind games. So then we dream and we mourn. Don't worry, I hear you.

1. Flyte -- "Cathy Come Home"

"Cathy come home for supper, Cathy he doesn't love ya." Ouch... we all know or have been a Cathy.

2. Ariana Grande, Social House -- "boyfriend"

This song is the "situationship" anthem if I ever did hear one. The music video is worth a watch, too.

3. Anna Of The North -- "Dream Girl"


If you're still nostalgic and wearing your rose-colored glasses about him (or her), this song is for you.

4. Lana Del Rey -- "Queen Of Disaster"


You won't find this unreleased jewel on Apple Music but that won't stop you from playing it incessantly. This song is perfect for describing the feelings we have for that one "bad boy" who slithers into our hearts. This song is well-known for being on TikTok, and that is where I discovered it. An odd place for discovery, but what can I say? I have to give credit where it's due. I guess kids these days have good taste in music, and I'm all for it.

5. Olivia O'Brien -- "Josslyn"

Nothing's worse than being in a love triangle you didn't sign up for, and Olivia O'Brien lets that be known.

6. Madison Beer -- "Dead"

Madison Beer is nothing less than savage in this sarcastic bop. Say it louder for the people in the back!

7. Frank Sinatra -- "Strangers In the Night"

Frank Sinatra has to have the most magical and dreamiest voice out there. This song is romantic and timeless -- albeit, unrelatable for most people, but who said we can't dream?

8. Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone -- "City Of Stars"

This song is a personal favorite of mine and it's even better in the context of the movie. If you haven't watched "La La Land," you need to do so immediately!

9. Yuna -- "Deeper Conversation"

The perfect song for people who love hard and are dreaming of something real with someone. I'm not crying, you are!

10. Sabrina Claudio -- "Truth Is"

Have some tissues ready for your tears if this is your first time listening to "Truth Is," you've been warned.

11. Ashe -- "Moral of the Story"

Ashe is real and bold in this single. She's right though, sometimes we make mistakes and that's okay. We owe it to ourselves to forgive ourselves for whatever may have happened when we cared for the wrong person.

12. Selena Gomez -- "Rare"


This playlist was a roller coaster of emotions but at the end of the day, we have Selena Gomez to remind us to keep our head up. You are "Rare," darling, and you deserve to know that about yourself and to be treated as such. Sometimes being alone is a necessary part of your journey, and it is better to be alone than to be in an unhappy situation. Remember your worth and don't settle for anything less than the best!

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
