One Direction Fans Initiate #ProjectJustHoldOn

Louis Tomlinson is going to take over the world with just a little help from his fans.

On Wednesday, December 7th, Johannah Deakin was taken from the world. She was battling leukemia, a very deadly form of cancer. You might not know who that is, but to the One Direction fandom, she is the beautiful, bright and brave woman who gave birth to Louis Tomlinson. She is one of the greatest mothers to walk the planet, constantly sacrificing, giving, loving, and caring for all of her children. Jay raised 7 breathtakingly beautiful children, the oldest of them being some of the strongest people I'll probably ever know. Louis, maybe most of all.

On Saturday, Louis dropped his first song as a solo artist in collaboration with Steve Aoki. That same day, only three days after his mother's death, Louis went on a stage and performed that song, titled "Just Hold On". It was Jay's dying wish to see him release solo music and to perform, and Louis did just that. In a beautiful and brave act, Louis shined on stage, bringing most of Wembley stadium to tears. They weren't the only ones, however, as much of the world watched along as Louis laid his heart out on the stage, singing every word to his mother, ending the performance with a kiss aimed to the sky.

Because of what has happened to Jay, as well as this song being dedicated to her, the One Direction fandom are at it again. #ProjectJustHoldOn is only a few days underway, and the fandom has already lifted "Just Hold On" to #1 on the UK charts, as well at #2 on the U.S. charts. Louis' newest single is sitting #1 in over 30 countries and they aim to get it higher all over the world. Not to mention the money everyone has donated in Johannah's name, bringing Louis' birthday charity drive to topple $25,000.

By streaming it on Spotify, asking local stations to play it, and asking everyone they know to buy the song, the fans are begging the world to get "Just Hold On" the attention it deserves. If you haven't listened yet, please do. It's a very upbeat, fun, EDM tune where Louis' higher pitches ease you and make you smile. It's truly a masterpiece that reminds us all to hold on and not to give up, even when times get hard and when all you want to do is close the book.

"The sun goes down and it comes back up. The world, it turns, no matter what. If it all goes wrong, darling, just hold on."

Help Louis by streaming "Just Hold On" on Spotify, TIDAL, and Dreezer.

Buy his newest single, share it with your friends, make them all listen.

Join the Thunderclap to help spread the world.

Donate to the Eden Dora Trust, Believe in Magic, or Bloodwise, all of which Johannah and Louis are/were huge advocates for.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
