5 Songs For When You Need A Change Of Musical Scenery

Do you ever find yourself skipping through your playlist endlessly, never finding a song you want to listen to? Even though you hand-picked all the songs on there? Or, even worse, you ran out of skips and had to sit through songs you just were not in the mood for? Believe me, I am in that position every single day. Sometimes, all you need is a new song that will change up your mood or will keep you wanting more in order to get to that next song. Here are five songs I listen to all the time that keep me beyond entertained.

"Fiancé" - Mino


This song off of Korean rapper's first solo album, "XX", combines hypnotizing strings and powerful synth effects to create a totally jam-able rap tune. I know that when I first heard this song, I was thrown for a loop. It wasn't at all what I expected, and it is a song I never get tired of.

"The Joke" - Brandi Carlile

Brandi Carlile's "The Joke" is a powerful, well-organized folk-rock song, which uses the intensity of its lyrics and Carlile's vocals to push the message. As someone who really is not into country music at all, this song impresses me without fail every time. It makes me emotional, encourages me, and reminds me that even though the world we live in today is falling, we should not give up and we should still strive to be our own selves.

"Dazed & Confused" - Ruel


This soulful gem of a song is one I can belt in my car any day. Young artist Ruel has a huge talent for releasing catchy songs. This song is one I think everyone can relate to and I definitely have it on my current top ten list for favorite songs.

"you should see me in a crown" - Billie Eilish

I first found this song when watching a dance video and was absolutely stunned by how different it was. Billie Eilish includes deep bass, heavy electronics, and her mellow alto voice to captivate listeners. I think it is really interesting to hear this song and listen to how many genres can be found. While I don't necessarily sing every word to this song, it definitely makes me want to dance.

"Waste It On Me" - Steve Aoki feat. BTS


A song from one of the top producers and DJs in America and some of the members from the number one boy band in the world is bound to be a good one. This song, which is a very EDM, energetic bop, makes you want to sing along every time. It's easy to listen to and is great for driving around on a beautiful morning or studying for an exam.

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.

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.
