Throughout life, we cry. Tears of joy are more favorable; However, a sad cry is sometimes needed. It's nice to cry it out sometimes. I made this collection for people who want new ways to express how they feel and maybe let out a little bit. It's incredibly important. I encourage you to seek help if it is an emergency. There is help out there for any issue you're facing. These songs have been used by many, including myself, to relate and helped others cope with their problems.

This list has brought together many different artists from various genres. Some songs contain sensitive subjects, so listen at your own discretion. Hopefully, you'll get lost in the music enough to get through whatever is troubling you. Maybe, you'll have a new sad jam for the next disaster (fingers crossed that doesn't happen soon). So without further ado, here is a collection of the finest devastating tunes to get your optical waterfalls bawling.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
