I Recently Discovered The 'U Up?' Podcast And Now My Days Are 10 Times Better

I have recently spent a lot of time in the car. Road trips for traveling, back and forth from school, and just the day-to-day driving from work and school.

And as big of a fan of music as I am, when you're on a long road trip or listening to the same Spotify playlist every time you get in the car, it can sometimes get old.

My boyfriend Jaxson and I were in the car for a 5 and a half hour drive to Savannah, Georgia for our fall break vacation. And as fun as it is talking and listening to throwback tunes, he suggested something that could make our road trip a little more fun.

He suggested listening to a podcast. At first, just the thought of hearing people talk for 5 hours already bored me; but I decided to give it a chance.

I'm a writer and a communication major so it is no surprise that I love a good discussion, conversation, and debate. I just needed to find one that would spark my interest.

I browsed on the Apple Podcast app for a show that might catch my eye. Under the comedy category,' U Up?' by Betches Media immediately caught my eye with their brightly colored cartoon logo and the short description of what the podcast was all about. To make my discovery a long story short, within the first few minutes of the podcast we were hooked and listened to the 'U Up?' podcast for the rest of the car ride.

'U Up?' is a modern-day dating podcast presented by Betches Media and hosted by the hilarious Jordana Abraham and Jared Freid. In their multiple segments, they discuss everything from dating issues and relationship advice to odd sexual encounters and dates sent in by viewers.

The two hosts together make a hysterical pair and their comments on viewer dating experiences keep me laughing the entire show. Not only is the podcast entertaining because of the comedy aspect, but it is also so relatable- especially to millennials.

With episode titles such as "What's The Best Way To Get Someone To Stop Texting You?" "Can You Start A Real Relationship From An Instagram Thirst Trap?" and "Is It Okay To Ask How Many People They've Slept With?" when it comes to swoon topics- this podcast has it all.

Having both the male and the female perspective from Jared and Jordana, makes the podcast relatable to everyone. Jared's sarcastic and raunchy humor mixed with Jordana's blunt point of view where she isn't scared to say all the things girls do but never want to admit, you're bound to find a common point of view.

So next time you are on a road trip with your friends, trying to think of anything to get you through that 30 minutes on the elliptical, or can't find anything to watch on TV- I highly recommend giving 'U Up?' a listen.

I promise you won't regret it.

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.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
