25 Songs That Take Me Back To Middle School

A soundtrack for the mid 2010s

I used my own personal favorites and the charts to compile this “playlist" so to speak. I hope these songs bring back memories and a smile to your face.

1. "Adorn" by Miguel

2. "Pop That" by French Montana 

3. "Mercy" by Kanye West

Kanye West solidified himself as one of the best producers with this song. The beat change on his verse is spectacular, to say the least.

4. "Bandz a Make Her Dance" by Juicy J

5. "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys

6. "Thinkin’ Bout You" by Frank Ocean

You played this when your crush sat next to someone else on the bus.

7. "Gangnam Style" by Psy

3.67 BILLION views on YouTube, enough said.

8. "Starships" by Nicki Minaj 

9. "Royals" by Lorde

10. "Stay" by Rihanna

11. "Started From the Bottom" by Drake

Even with people saying “He was on Degrassi! He never struggled! He didn’t come from the bottom!” Drake still topped charts with this song.

12. "Wake Up" by Avicii

13. "Summertime Sadness" by Lana Del Rey 

The moody beat, the low vocals, what more can you ask for on a Lana song?

14. "Love Me" by Lil’ Wayne

This is a great addition to the long list of perfection that is a Lil Wayne and Drake song.

15. "F**ckin Problems" by A$AP Rocky

With verses from Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and 2 Chain; this song had me whispering the f-bomb in my room while it was playing on my iPod.

16. "Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons started their ascension to the top of the alt rock charts with this song.

17. "Rico Story" by Speaker Knockerz (RIP)

Proof that new school “mumble rappers” can tell stories.

18. "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea 

This introduced American listeners to “the thunder from down under” that was Iggy Azalea.

19. "Rude" by MAGIC!

20. "Bang Bang" by Jessie J

The remix? The original? Whichever you prefer, Jessie J did not come here to play when she made this song.

21. "Turn Down for What" by DJ Snake

I still have no idea what Lil Jon says before the beat drops.

22. "Take Me to Church" by Hozier 

All the discussions over this song’s, and its music video’s, meaning.

23. "Drunk in Love" by Beyoncé 

Cigars on ice? Surfboard? Beyoncé had me on urban dictionary at a young age.

24. "Latch" by Disclosure 

25. "Antidote" by Travis Scott

Two rules:
1. Don’t you open up that window.
2. Don’t you let out that antidote.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
