Help, I Think I’m Starting To Like Country Music

Please ignore all those times I've judged this genre.

Help, I Think I’m Starting To Like Country Music

For years I was able to say I liked most music, but maybe not some rap and definitely not country music. However, those days might have come to an end. Recently I've really loved the song "Tequila" by Dan and Shay, so naturally, I went on Spotify to listen to it. However, I forgot that more of their music would just continue to play.

To be completely honest I didn't mind it at all. As I stood there folding my laundry I was enthralled by this music and loving every moment of it.

Now the funny thing is that I initially went on Spotify to listen to just that song and then go listen to some Marren Morris, another country singer I've recently discovered after seeing her open for Niall Horan. So eventually I began listening to her album and again was hooked.

I never thought there'd be a time in my life where country music grabbed my attention so easily.

Now to be fair I've always had a soft spot for a little country, but that really only included Taylor Swift's early work and Hunter Hayes. Classic T-Swift was just too damn relatable and catchy not to love, and Hunter is just an amazingly talented man. Not to mention seeing both of them perform some of these songs live just made my love for them grow.

But obviously, I always thought I was more of a pop-country kind of girl. And to be fair both of my newly discovered country loves aren't the most hard-core country singers.

Yes, it's apart of the genre, but I don't think I'll be singing about a guy's pickup truck any time soon.

Alas, I must admit I regret judging some of those extreme country music fans because it appears they may have been on to something. But it just shows that we should all stop being so judgemental of each other's music taste and just let people listen to what they enjoy. For whatever reason, people become incredibly defensive about their music, when personally I just want to listen to whatever sounds good regardless of the genre.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
