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.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
