Keys For The Perfect Playlist For Your Commute

Keep yourself pumped up on your commute with these tips for the perfect playlist.

Keys For The Perfect Playlist For Your Commute

Nobody likes having to commute. Whether it's to school, work or for when you're heading home, having a playlist to accompany you always makes the commute go by faster.

Here are some tips to take into consideration when creating the perfect playlist for your commute.

Pick Music That Will Pump You Up


No one wants to listen to sad music on their way to work or school in the morning when they are struggling to stay awake. They want something that will pump them up and wake them up on their way. So whether it's a song you like to sing from the top of your lungs or a pop song that you secretly like, add it to your playlist and I promise you will not regret it.

Mix It Up


Sometimes it can be hard to get out of your usual style of music you like to listen to, but it doesn't hurt to give other genres and artists a shot. You'd be surprised what songs and artists become your newfound favorites.

Update It Often


The same song that pumped you up last month doesn't have the same energetic feel to it like it used to. Not only that, but you will also be discovering new music, which will lead to a shakeup in this playlist. Make sure to stay organized and clean it out every now and then.

Make Sure It Is Long Enough


Whether your commute is five minutes or over an hour, make sure it's long enough for your commute and then some so that way there is some variety to the songs you listen to. No one likes it when there is still ten minutes left in your commute and you have nothing left to listen to.

Don't forget to click shuffle on the playlist as you leave the house and enjoy your commute a little more than what you usually would.

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.

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.
