7 Lyrics Every Girl Can Relate To From Banks' New Album

Banks is one of the most underrated artists in the game right now. One of her most popular singles "Waiting Game" debuted in 2013 during a Victoria Secret commercial. Since then, she's been recognized for her passionate, sensual and sometimes sad music. Although most of her songs relate to how women feel in relationships, it's safe to say everyone has felt the same way she has at some point in their life.

Banks' music is raw and real. You can almost feel the pain in her voice just from hearing her sing certain lines. My question is: WHO HURT HER? I know we have all had bad relationships here and there, but this girl has been sad for six years now. However, all of this hurt has brought us a new album, so I'm not complaining.

This album has thirteen songs, each being different but equally sappy. If you are a sappy girl, then these seven lyrics might relate to you.

1. "but I'm hurting from the way this worked out, if you could rearrange your words you could've saved it."

2. "I can't save myself, mama, I need help."

3. "And I wish I could change it, yeah, and we're always gonna be contaminated."

4. "Why didn't you tell me how you felt that day."

5. "Cause I felt the power when I laid down at your side."

6. "You belong to someone else but maybe if we just rewind the tape?"

7. "You want me to stroke your ego."

Each of these seven lyrics were from seven different songs off of this new album. It's obvious to see that Banks has had a rough couple of years and needed to let out all of this sadness and anger. Everyone takes out these feelings in their own ways, yet it's a beautiful thing to realize that other people have felt the same exact way you have at one point in your life.

This is why music is so important. Not only is it an outlet for people, but it's a way for people to feel like they aren't alone. Being a "sappy" person isn't necessarily a bad thing. I would definitely identify myself as a sappy person and I have nothing to be sad about, but sometimes I need to let these feelings out. So if any of these lyrics stood out to you, go listen to the album because I can guarantee it won't disappoint.

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.

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.

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.
