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.

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.

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.
