I have recently started listening to some of my playlists from high school, and it has sent me down some wild memory lanes, especially my playlist from senior year. I am counting down the days until spring break when I can take the back roads to and from my high school with the windows down and these songs blasting. Here are thirty songs from some of my angstiest days that you should definitely give a try on your angsty days too.

1. 'Only One' — Yellowcard

2. 'The Kids Aren't Alright' — Fall Out Boy

3. 'Over You' — Daughtry

4. 'Backseat Serenade' — All Time Low

5. 'Never Be Alone' — Shawn Mendes

This is a different type of angsty, but at the ripe age of 17, this song should not have made me feel so deeply.

6. 'Fix You' — Coldplay

I listened to a CONCERNING amount of Coldplay; I don't think I was OK.

7. 'The Times They Are A-Changin'' — Bob Dylan

Disclaimer: No part of me was prepared or ready to leave high school.

8. 'Bored To Death' — blink-182

9. 'The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows' — Brand New

10. 'Flicker, Fade' — Taking Back Sunday

11. 'The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage — Panic! At The Disco

12. 'A Part Of Me' — Neck Deep

13. 'A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me"' — Fall Out Boy

14. 'Why Won't You Love Me' — 5 Seconds of Summer

There was a LOT of 5SOS, each song more concerning than the last.

15. 'Cute Without the "E"' — Taking Back Sunday

16. 'The Hell Song' — Sum 41

17. 'I'd Do Anything' — Simple Plan

18. 'Ocean Avenue' — Yellowcard

19. 'Keasby Nights' — Catch 22

20. 'Punk Rock Girl' — The Dead Milkmen

21. 'Screaming Infidelities' — Dashboard Confessional

22. 'Still Waiting' — Sum 41

23. 'Letters To You' Finch

24. 'First Date' — blink-182

Fun fact, I absolutely listened to this song while getting ready for my first-ever first date.

25. 'Ohio Is for Lovers' — Hawthorne Heights

This is definitely the most concerning song on the list, but I still stand by it being a great song.

26. 'Memory' — Sugarcult

27. 'Twin Size Mattress' — The Front Bottoms

If you add any artist from this article to your listening habits, make it The Front Bottoms.

28. 'Wonderwall' — Oasis

29. 'Constant Headache' — Joyce Manor

30. 'Your Graduation' — Modern Baseball

I think that this song will always hover around #1 on my list of favorite songs, and I won't ever be sorry.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
