Let me show you how it's done.

8 Reasons Your Spotify Playlist Wasn't Made For The Aux Cord

Are you really friends with someone if you haven't made a collaborative playlist together on Spotify? I'll let that one slide because after you read this article, you'll be rushing to create something that's driving-with-the-windows-down worthy.

1. You didn't choose a theme.

You know how Spotify can generate different music based on your mood? That's essentially what you should strive to do with your playlist. I've included some of my personal favorites below to give you some inspiration.

I'm On Island Time | Wild | Gimme the Aux Cord | Getting Ready | Risque | Ibiza

2. You only included what's on the Top 50.

Major rookie mistake, never, EVER solely pick songs that are only popular on the radio. It's okay to include some, but all of your songs shouldn't come from the charts, where's the creativity in that? I recommend seeing what your friends are listening to or randomly scrolling through different genres.

3. You forgot about Chelsea Cutler, too.

Who in the world is that? You're probably thinking. Well, Sam Hunt actually put her on his Billboard Music Awards playlist so she's kind of a big deal. For real though, just listen to this chick.

4. There weren't any throwbacks, or maybe you had too many.

Might as well make a throwback playlist if you've got A LOT, but there's no harm in throwing one, two, or maybe even three (you didn't hear it from me) classics on there. If anything, it'll give everyone something to sing along to.

5. You thought Drake was "too mainstream."

Everyone needs a little bit of Drake.

6. Your title sucks.

Once me and my friend made a playlist called "Yoga Bomb" named after a bath bomb we saw at LUSH and included "Do Yoga" by Rae Sremmurd on it. It's for when we're driving to yoga class on Sunday's. Don't ask.

7. You didn't think twice about making it available offline.

Nothing's worse than running out of data or being stuck somewhere without any connection. Download your beloved playlist so you can listen to it anywhere.

8. You didn't know you could add your own aesthetically-pleasing album artwork.

Yes, you can scroll through We Heart It or Tumblr and find a cute pic, overlay some text on top, and bam, your playlist is instantly better. You'll be ahead of the game, trust me.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
