Lorde's 'Green Light' Is Everything And More

Oh, I wish I could get my things and just let go I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it.

Lorde's 'Green Light' Is Everything And More

Lorde. The diamond that hails from New Zealand to bring us all amazing music. Known for her song "Royals" that came out in 2013 and other edgy dark songs, dropped a new song late last week. This new song "Green Light" may appear to some as a Great Gatsby reference, but it is so much more than that.

This new song was produced by both Lorde and Jack Antonoff (former Fun. member and leader of The Bleachers). It is something that many people wouldn't see Lorde singing. It starts off as an EDM mix that she might have previously recorded, but it shouts so much more than that.

There are so many elements that you get to hear. It starts with a simple piano ballad, then progresses to a house rev-up, and is meshed together with a shoutalong chorus that will be stuck in everyone's heads. The dark drum beats and peppy piano mesh so well together. It is mind blowing.

The song takes place post relationship breakup. It takes you on a journey to singledom and all the things in between. There are lines that take a punch and your ex's new guy/girl, and all the things they are lying about to their new person. The "Green Light" is meant to represent the ability to move on from what was and keep your head up. It is upbeat, catchy, and the music video is also incredibly flawless. Jack Antonoff also makes an appearance in the video (he is the guy in the bathroom playing the piano).

I give it a full 10 out of 10 and recommend that everyone take a listen to it. Check out the music video below!

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.
