10 Songs To Listen To If You're Going Through It And Need A Little Push

It's about that time of year for every college student. Final exams, projects and papers are quickly approaching, and it feels like you're failing 13 classes even though you're only taking 5. Even the most organized people can feel like they're drowning in work, and it may feel like a never-ending cycle of stress.

Personally, I listen to music when I'm stressed. It helps me calm down, and reminds me that sometimes I need to take a step back and breathe. I've made a playlist of these songs, and I listen to it quite often, and because it's nearly finals week, I felt now was the best time.

1. Eazy - G-Eazy

Giphy

For those of you who don't know, I'm an avid G-Eazy fan. I got the chance to see him live this past summer, and it all went downhill from there. This song is the last song on his most recent album, "The Beautiful & Damned," and it's pretty much a summary of his life from the time he was 14 up until pretty recently. He talks about how he struggled with fighting, love, and even going to juvenile detention, and then talks about how successful he became after his career took off. If you look past his songs about sex, drugs and girls, you'll find that there's actually a lot of good content, like this song.

2. Stressed Out - Twenty One Pilots

Giphy

Just the name of the song itself is a mood. When Tyler said "out of student loans and tree house homes, we all would take the latter," I FELT THAT PERSONALLY.

3. Champion - Fall Out Boy

Giphy

"If I can live through this, I can do anything," is just a friendly reminder that the tough times will pass and everything will be okay again.

4. Say Amen (Saturday Night) - Panic! At The Disco 

Giphy

This song really doesn't have any inspirational meaning in my playlist. Sometimes, you just gotta have a song in there that's upbeat. You know, for a dance break.

5. The Champion - Carrie Underwood and Ludacris 

Again with the messages of empowerment. Sometimes you really need it.

6. Everything Is Fine - All Time Low 

Giphy

Everything is fine and nothing matters....that's a mood sometimes, let's be honest.

7. Me, Myself & I - G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha

This is another one of those dance break songs. It's good to let lose. Plus, who doesn't love G-Eazy?

8. Whatever It Takes - Imagine Dragons

This one has recently become one of my favorites. I have a lot of people in my life who think I shouldn't do something for whatever reason, and they try to stop me. But, honestly, I love the sense of accomplishment whenever I finish something that I doubted myself on, so this song goes out to everyone who's ever said I couldn't do something. Look at me now.

9. HandClap - Fitz and The Tantrums

If your playlist isn't a combination of inspirational songs and dance breaks, do you even have a playlist?

10. Congratulations - Sleeping With Sirens feat. Matty Mullins

Giphy

In this song, it talks about making everyone else feel dumb when they didn't believe in you, but you're famous now and out there proving everyone wrong. This song is a personal one to me because it's how I feel almost every day. I had to save the best for last.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

It will be okay, eventually.

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
