8 Artists That Will Match Your Big Rainy Day Mood

8 Artists That Will Match Your Big Rainy Day Mood

Rainy days deserve their own playlist.


On a rainy day, sometimes your regular bops just don't cut it. There are different vibes on a rainy day and different vibes call for different music to listen to. Here are some remedies to that problem.

​1. Lorde

The first time I ever listened to "Melodrama," it was a rainy day and I was sitting inside my garage with the garage door open. That is the perfect context to enjoy Lorde. The vibes are unmatched. I recommend "Writer in the Dark."

​2. Secondhand Serenade

Almost everyone has heard their ultimate sad bop "Fall For You." However, not many people have checked out their other songs to find more sad and semi-sad bops. Perfectly captures the mood of a rainy day. I recommend "Pretend."

​3. Misterwives

They have a good assortment of types of songs, but they all have a similar tone to them that falls into place on a rainy day perfectly. They also just have great music and are vastly underappreciated so you should check them out on any day. I recommend "Vagabond."

​4. One Direction

We all love a good throwback now and then. Slow One Direction songs are good throwbacks and also match the energy of a rainy day very well. I recommend "Through The Dark" and "Strong."

​5. twenty one pilots

twenty one pilots is a chill, yet lit band that has plenty of bops to fill your rainy day. They are truly one of a kind. I recommend "The Judge."

​6. Arctic Monkeys

They, aside from just being a great group, have a unique and chill sound that provides the perfect soundtrack to your rainy day. I recommend the classic, "Do I Wanna Know?"

​7. Panic! At The Disco

I love them so much and will always recommend them, but their album "Pretty Odd" is a great rainy day album. It has very soft vibes. I recommend "Northern Downpour."

8. Ed Sheeran

There really isn't an occasion where Ed Sheeran isn't approprate. He has a wide range of content and it's easy to find something to match your mood. For a good cry, I recommend "Happier."

11 Things Psychology Majors Hear That Drive Them Crazy

No pun intended.

We've all been there. You're talking to a new acquaintance, or a friend of your parents, or whoever. And then, you get the dreaded question.

"So what are you studying in school?"

Cue the instant regret of picking Psychology as your major, solely for the fact that you are 99.9% likely to receive one of the slightly comical, slightly cliche, slightly annoying phrases listed below. Don't worry though, I've included some responses for you to use next time this comes up in conversation. Because it will.

Quick side note, these are all real-life remarks that I've gotten when I told people I was a psych major.

Here we go.

1. So are you, like, analyzing me right now?

Well, I wasn't. But yeah. Now I am.

2. Ugh so jealous! You picked the easy major.

"Lol" is all I have to say to this one. I'm gonna go write my 15-page paper on cognitive impairment. You have fun with your five college algebra problems, though!

3. So can you tell me what you think is wrong with me? *Shares entire life story*

Don't get me wrong; I love listening and helping people get through hard times. But we can save the story about how one time that one friend said that one slightly rude comment to you for later.

4. Well, s**t, I have to be careful what I say around you.

Relax, pal. I couldn't diagnose and/or institutionalize you even if I wanted to.

5. OMG! I have the perfect first client for you! *Proceeds to vent about ex-boyfriend or girlfriend*

Possible good response: simply nod your head the entire time, while actually secretly thinking about the Ben and Jerry's carton you're going to go home and demolish after this conversation ends.

6. So you must kind of be like, secretly insane or something to be into Psychology.

Option one: try and hide that you're offended. Option two: just go with it, throw a full-blown tantrum, and scare off this individual, thereby ending this painful conversation.

7. Oh. So you want to be a shrink?

First off, please. Stop. Calling. Therapists. Shrinks. Second, that's not a psych major's one and only job option.

8. You know you have to go to grad school if you ever want a job in Psychology.

Not completely true, for the record. But I am fully aware that I may have to spend up to seven more years of my life in school. Thanks for the friendly reminder.

9. So you... want to work with like... psychopaths?

Let's get serious and completely not-sarcastic for a second. First off, I take personal offense to this one. Having a mental illness does not classify you as a psycho, or not normal, or not deserving of being treated just like anyone else on the planet. Please stop using a handful of umbrella terms to label millions of wonderful individuals. It's not cool and not appreciated.

10. So can you, like, read my mind?

It actually might be fun to say yes to this one. Try it out and see what happens. Get back to me.

11. You must be a really emotional person to want to work in Psychology.

Psychology is more than about feeling happy, or sad, or angry. Psychology is about understanding the most complex thing to ever happen to us: our brain. How it works the way it does, why it works the way it does, and how we can better understand and communicate with this incredibly mysterious, incredibly vast organ in our tiny little skull. That's what psychology is.

So keep your head up, psychology majors, and don't let anyone discourage you about choosing, what is in my opinion, the coolest career field out there. The world needs more people like us.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Roses

What's worth more than red roses?


Five years old and a bouquet of roses rested in her hands. The audience-- clapped away her performance, giving her a standing ovation. She's smiling then because everything made sense, her happiness as bright as the roses she held in her hands.

Fifteen now, and a pile of papers rested on her desk. The teachers all smiled when she walked down the aisle and gave them her presentation. She was content then but oh so stressed, but her parents happy she had an A as a grade, not red on her chest.

Eighteen now and a trail of tears followed her to the door. Partying, and doing some wild things, she just didn't know who she was. She's crying now, doesn't know anymore, slamming her fists into walls, pricking her fingers on roses' thorns.

Twenty-one and a bundle of bills were grasped in her hands. All the men-- clapped and roared as she sold her soul, to the pole, for a dance. She's frowning now because everything went wrong, but she has to stay strong, for rich green money, is worth more than red roses.
