Finals season is bringing out the Joey Tribbiani in college students all across the country... It's all fun and games until someone asks "how you doin'?" and you have a mental breakdown.
1. You realize a week before exams you probably should have started cramming about a month ago.
Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

Taylor Swift is the only reason I've gotten through every love, and every break-up. Here's a list of 13 lyrics/quotes about love from Taylor Swift's albums.
“Losing him was blue like I’ve never known. Missing him was dark grey all alone. Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met. Loving him was red.”
"Red" from the album "Red." This song perfectly describes every feeling that radiates through your entire being when you love and then lose someone.
“I wish we could go back, and remember what we were fighting for. I wish you knew that, I miss you too much to be mad anymore. I wish you were right here, right now, it’s all good. I wish you would.”
"I Wish You Would" from 1989. Sometimes I wish it was acceptable to just blast Taylor Swift during an argument because I totally would.
“You learn my secrets and you figure out why I’m guarded. You say we’ll never make my parents mistake.”
"Mine" from Speak Now. Let's surpass everyone's expectations.
“My baby’s fly like a jet stream, high above the whole scene, loves me like I’m brand new.”
"Call It What You Want To" from the Reputation album. Once in a lifetime, there's someone who looks at your scars and calls you strong and brave, instead of damaged.
“My mother accused me of losing my mind, but I swore I was fine.”
"Dear John" from Speak now. Love makes you do crazy things.
“One night he wakes, strange look on his face. Pauses then says ‘you’re my best friend’. And you knew what it was. He is in love.”
"You Are In Love" from the 1989 album. Swift gives me chills with this song. Every time you think you're in love, you realize that the last time wasn't even close. True love, happens once or twice, and not for everyone.
“You pull my chair out, and help me in. And you don’t know how nice that is, but I do. And you throw your head back laughing like a little kid. I think it’s strange that you think I’m funny cause, he never did. I’ve been spending the last eight months, thinking all love ever does is break, and burn, and end. But on a Wednesday, in a cafe, I watched it begin again.”
"Begin Again" from the Red album. One of my top five favorite songs. Real love shows you how you should've been treated all along.
“Why would you wanna make the very first scar? Why would you wanna break a perfectly good heart?”
"A Perfectly Good Heart" from the first Taylor Swift album. Some people are only here to take. Never to give or share.
“The rain came pouring down, when I was drowning that’s when I cold finally breathe. And by morning, gone was any trace of you, I think I am finally clean.”
'Clean' from 1989. It can take years, even lifetimes, to finally feel free from love.
“There I was again tonight, forcing laughter, faking smiles, same old tired lonely place. Walls of insincerity, shifting eyes and vacancy, vanished when I saw your face. All I can say is it was, enchanting to meet you.”
'Enchanted' from Speak Now album. Love at first sight?
“Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone, I’ll be waiting all that’s left to do is run. You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess, it’s a love story, baby just say yes.”
'Love Story' from Fearless album. This song makes me want to take a chance and escape with a stranger.
“I once was poison ivy, but now I’m your daisy.”
"Don't Blame Me" from Reputation. I'm only better when I'm with you.
“We could get married. Have 10 kids and teach em how to dream.”
"Starlight" from the Red album. Only certain people are worth growing with.
