Why You Need A Band

Because everyone has that one song that reminds them of that one time.

Why You Need A Band
Metro Lyrics

So, you're probably thinking, why do I need a band? I'm not musically talented, I can't sing, I sure can't dance. Well, lucky for you, that's not what I mean at all.

Every time I think back on my life, I can't help but think about music. I mean, who doesn't love music? Of course, there are some of us, but for most of us - music plays a big part in our lives. Wether it's music that we listen to on the way to work, when we workout, or music in a movie or the radio, we've all heard something that brings us back to wanting to hear that song one more time, play the beginning one more time, and preset the radio to the station with our new favorite band.

Music is so powerful. It can tell a story, change our moods, change our minds and decisions. It's influential in so many ways to us and that's why I think it's important to have at least one band. But not just any band, YOUR band. THE band.

And again, I'm not saying start one, I'm just saying - find one that you love and let it save you.

I can remember a bad day, a sad day, a happy day, where all I wanted to do was crank up the music of my mood and fit the words in between every tiny place I couldn't fit a feeling anymore. And let me tell you, it worked. It's so important to find something that motivates you, makes you headstrong, makes you happy, sad, angry - drives you. Find something that makes you feel.

There are so many different genres of music, some I like and some I would only play once, but I can say for myself that I have found my band. It may not have been the first band I ever liked, but now they are the one that I love. Their music has saved my soul, it has saved my decisions, and it is influenced my life. They have altered my many moods, my decisions, and my thoughts. They take me back to a place where I can remember not wanting tomorrow to come, where I can remember how I made it - how I conquered, where I found my happy and realized it in their songs. There is something special to be said for a band that allows you fall in love with them.

So, whenever you're having a sad moment, a bad day, overwhelming thoughts, a joyous time, or just need a quick smile - crank up your band's best tunes and jam out in the best way you know how. Let them save you, let them drive you. Let their words tell your feelings and fill in the tiny places where you just can't find the words for feelings. Start the song over one thousand times, head bang into the wall, and cry until your face is an ocean.

Find your band.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
