Songs Of September

Time to curl up and listen to some music.

Songs Of September

I have always loved music and every genre of music. From some good old Rock & Roll to some good old alternative or country music, I’ve probably listened to it. People ask me all the time what my favorite song is and I typically don’t have an answer because it changes all the time from what I choose to listen to at the moment. This past month, I’ve been introduced to some new music and I thought I would share my top 10 songs of September, so here it is:

1. Fountain Of Youth: Local Natives

This song has such a calming vibe to it and the lyrics are amazing too. It’s basically a song about choosing where you want to go in life and doing what you want to do and I love that. Local Natives is one of my favorite bands to listen to!

2. Ultraviolet: Dagny

I don’t think I can effectively express my love for this song in words but I will try! When you get a crush and you get those butterflies and constantly think about them and your holding back and then eventually give in? Well, that is what this song is about and I love it. She says in the song “You’re ultraviolet, I can’t turn away” that’s the entire essence of the song and I enjoy it so much. Let’s not forget that it is also a very upbeat catchy song that will get stuck in your head so be aware you have been warned!

3. Losin' Control: Russ

If you have not heard of Russ, he is a self-produced hip hop artist and I absolutely love him. I do listen to rap music but his music always has this truth to it and it’s like you listen to one song and then all of a sudden you know all the words to every song he has written and produced. This song will always be my favorite because he sings about a girl who is in a relationship but carries baggage from a past relationship and because she’s falling in love now, she’s losing control. It just has such a nice vibe to it and the lyrics are so real I just love it.

4. 11 Blocks: Wrabel

After hearing this song, I immediately fell in love. It brings to light the feelings of heartbreak and the feelings you get after your first love. The artwork for the song is actually a traced map that the artist traced between his house and his first loves house and he has it tattooed on his left forearm as a reminder. The word I use to describe Wrabel and is soulful because he speaks from the soul.

5. Follow the Sun: Xavier Rudd

I found this song on Spotify on a yoga playlist and I fell in love. This song is essentially about just living. With the beautiful guitar, alluring harmonica, bird chirps in the background, and Xavier’s angelic voice; you will instantly feel calm and stress-free. Although this song was made in 2012, it is still one of my favorite songs of this month and probably for eternity.

6. Plans: Elephante, Brandyn Burnette

“Love is what happens when you make other plans.” That is the essential piece of this song. The upbeat vibes that make it a fun song add to the message that the song is sending. Basically what it’s saying is that you should live your life to the fullest and not be obsessed with finding a relationship but rather just letting it happen when it does.

7. Somebody else: Verite

Do you ever have that ex and when you see them someone else it kind of hurt but not because you want them back just because it’s weird to think about them with somebody else? This song embodies that completely. “I don’t want your body I just hate to think about you with somebody else.” That is the exact phrase she uses, and I love it because it is so true. This song is very catchy and upbeat as well so dance party is on me with this one!

8. I'm Ready: Niykee Heaton

This song has become so important to me because of the simple line she says in it which is “my ambition is my weaponry.” Every person who has ambition has the means to succeed and that’s what this entire song is about. She named the song “I’m ready” because of how many times she has been shot down by labels and decided to do it on her own and have her friend produce her music instead of a label. I’ve even thought about getting that tattooed on me to always have as a reminder.

9. Too Good: Drake & Rihanna

The iconic duo of 2016 has brought us yet another hit song. This one, in my opinion, is better than the last one. They talk about being taken for granted in a relationship and they do it in a way that anyone can relate and find a part of the song they enjoy. Drake and Rihanna are notorious for putting out great singles and topping the charts alone and it’s only fitting that they decide to tackle the charts together.

10. Starving: Hailee Seinfeld & Grey (Feat. Zed)

This song is such a good song to listen too! With Hailee Steinfeld’s amazing vocals and the music in the back, it just makes it so groovy. I don’t think I can listen to this song without dancing around a little bit and singing along! The song is just so catchy and fun and I’m sure mostly everyone has heard it and if you haven’t, I highly recommend it!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
