We’ve gotten to the time when reboots/remakes are at large because nobody else has any more new ideas, and the same could be said for music. With some exceptions, everything worthwhile has already been written about in a song, so it’s good to look back and remember the music we listened to when we were younger, and hey if we still secretly jam out to Disney Channel songs in our twenties--well no one needs to know, do they? Here are songs to add to the throwback playlist you tell yourself that you don't have!

These include upbeat songs that you can’t help but bop your head to or the ones that, even when you haven’t heard them in years, you know all the lyrics to it when it comes on. These bops are definitely a sure fire way to jam with your friends, whether you're looking for quick one jam session or enough for an impromptu road trip.

10 Totally Relatable Tunes

My favorite group of the bunch, these songs packed a punch, hitting us in the feels before fandoms took over. These songs were either provide insight too real topics (for teens, anyway) or was a full on empowerment bop, either way, we all loved songs that could relate to our lives and feelings.

5 Lovely Dove-y Jams

While love may be a foreign concept to us back then, we all thought that these bops were relationship goals before we created the term.

5 Catchy Songs From Imaginary “Bands"

Back before the time when every Disney Channel star was also a singer in the making, sometimes music from our favorite artists wasn’t enough. But where there was tv shows, there was a universe that included a fictional band ready with a basic but popular beat that most of us couldn’t get out of head if we tried, not that we really wanted to anyway.

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.
