11 Songs That Make Up The Playlist Of My Life

Out of all the playlists, this one wraps up all of them.

Sure everyone can make a playlist, but what's the playlist that pretty much sums up your entire life in only 11 songs? There's a variety that can develop over the years.

1. "Don't Call Me" by Young Thug & Carnage feat. Shakka


This song has indeed, prevented me from calling people I know I shouldn't. It can also go vice versa where you don't want someone to call you, which can happen from time to time. With the EDM vibe Carnage brings to the infectious beat, it's inevitable to become addicted to this song.

2. "Undo" by The 1975


If I could put all of The 1975's songs in this playlist, I would. But since I have a limited number to this playlist, I had to choose this old classic. I was obsessed with this song for years because I feel like I always need to "undo" some action that took place in the past. It hits home every time.

3. "The Stranger" by Lord Huron


I first discovered Lord Huron from "The Night We Met" with their lonesome lyrics that reminisce on the past. The lyrics to this song speak to me, such as "I can't trust anyone or anything these days/If you are what you say you are, then show me your face." Nowadays there's not enough trust implemented in other people and we assume people just want things for a particular reason, so you are a stranger.

4. "Numb & Getting Colder" by Flume feat. Kucka


Flume is one of the first EDM artists I discovered, so when he released his sophomore album "Skin", it brought so much to the table. This song stood out to me because Kucka's voice is mesmerizing and the beats Flume creates to compliment her delicate voice will have you in goosebumps.

5. "Paranoid" by Post Malone


Post's first album "Stoney" was a staple album I listened to while on a road trip. So when "Beerbongs & Bentleys" released, it felt like a long, overdue treat to end my freshman year of college. The first track "Paranoid" spoke to me in levels because I am a very paranoid person but I'm not famous like Post Malone, so I can't imagine the anxiety he gets every day.

6. "III. Telegraph Ave. ('Oakland' by Lloyd)" by Childish Gambino


One of my favorite Gambino songs of all time hands down. The way he switches tempo of the beats and his switch from singing to rapping make this song a classic. I would listen to this when I was feeling down and it would make me feel better again.

7. "Porcelain" by Moby


This is the first song I remember my mom played for me in a car ride on the way to Chicago. I'm convinced this song is what got me into more EDM and electronic music, if you can't tell from the lineup of this music already.

8. "Take Care" by Drake ft. Rihanna


This was the first song I learned word for word by Drake. I think we can all agree the album was one of his best, so I felt like it was necessary to include such a classic.

9. "Use Somebody" by Kings Of Leon


Growing up, my dad was a huge fan of Kings of Leon. Car rides with him usually consisted of rock, which I am a fan of, but I don't usually listen to as much. However, Kings Of Leon will never have a song that goes old because people who aren't a fan of the genre still find a way to belt out the lyrics.

10. "Westside" by The Kooks


I have been listening to The Kooks for years yet did not know it. They have been around for over a decade and their songs are timeless. After listening to this song live, I was forever changed.

11. "505" by The Arctic Monkeys


The Arctic Monkeys help control my teenage angst with their harmonious rock songs and catchy beats. Alex Turner sounds even better live than he does on track. 505 is an old classic I could never get tired of hearing.

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

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.
